Wedding Planning

Hot Trend – Wedding Pops!

Ingredients

  • 1 white cake mix (super moist recommended)
  • 3/4 container spreadable vanilla frosting
  • 16 oz. white-chocolate candy
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 48 lollipop sticks (craft stores carry)
  • sprinkles, food glitter, mini chocolate chips
  • large Styrofoam block

Directions

  1. Grease a  9”x13" cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Prepare cake mix according to the package directions (tip: egg whites make the cake nice and white). Bake as directed.
  2. Allow cake to cool completely. Cut into 12 equal pieces. (tip: for perfectly white cake pops inside, slice off the browned tops and bottoms of the cake pieces with a sharp knife).
  3. Crumble the remaining white cake until fine into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Cream together frosting with cake crumbs. (tip: do not use entire container of frosting as it will make pops too moist)
  5. Roll cake mixture into 48 1 ½ inch balls. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and place balls on sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Melt white chocolate candy a double boiler or microwave. (tip: keep the melted candy warm while coating sticks/pops).
  7. Dip the end of a stick (1/2 inch) into the melted candy then push it 1/3 of the way into chilled cake ball. Set the ball upside down on the wax-paper-covered tray. Repeat until all cake balls are done. (tip: chill tray in the fridge to set sticks securely in the cake balls).
  8. Dip each cake ball quickly into the melted candy, coating completely. (tip: gently tap stick on the side of a bowl so excess coating can drip off).  
  9. Poke the stick securely into a styrofoam block and set aside until candy cools and hardens.

To Decorate:

  1. Bride Pop: Pipe white candy onto the cake pop, then sprinkle right away with food glitter or white sugar to look like lace. Add dots to the top to look like a necklace.
  2. Groom Pop: Dip each side of the cake pop into melted semi-sweet chocolate chips to look like the tuxedo jacket. Create a bow tie and buttons with piped chocolate or mini-chocolate chips.
