A friend of mine recently asked me to make some cakepops for her grandson’s 8th birthday. Here’s the process!
Start with a plain cake pop:
Next, what you’ll do is attach nose and ears to the pop using melted chocolate. I used cake, and it worked ok, but next time I’ll use a mini m&m for the nose, and half of one for each ear to make them more uniform.
Dip them in chocolate, I used white chocolate mixed with a little bit of yellow and red food colouring to make it a peachy colour. I then let them sit over night to harden.
After that, I cut red and green chocolate melts in half. Using a little bit of the red chocolate, I stuck the half melt in to use as the brim of the hat.
Using a paint brush, I painted the top of the head with the red chocolate to make the hat.
I did both hats in red in green, then put a little white dot on the hat. I then added a L or an M to the hat.
Here’s how the faces turned out:
And of course Mario needs Luigi:
I hope Cobey enjoys them, and that you did too!
