Introduction: Flower Cake Pop

Picture of Flower Cake Pop
I first saw this design on a cup cake.  I said to myself, “why not do it as a Cake Pop?”  The problem was finding the time.  Then my wonderful daughter-in-law told me that she doesn’t  “do” cake pops.  She uses donut holes, pre made.  Wow! :o  This is one of the simple ways to create a cake pop, then add marshmallows and turn them into flowers.  It won’t  take very much to create a garden full of flowers.  Here we go.

Step 1:

Supplies:
Cake donut holes
Yellow melts Sucker sticks
Large marshmallows
Colored sugar ( I made my own with sugar and regular coloring, mix them and then let them dry in the oven (200° for 10 minutes)
Scissors
Tooth picks

Step 2:

Picture of
Gather the marshmallows, scissors, and colored sugar.  Cut a marshmallow into 5 slices with the scissors that have been washed and left lightly wet. 

Step 3:

As you cut each flower petal from the marshmallow, quickly stick the sticky cut side down in the colored sugar,

and then lay it out to dry.  You will need 8 or 9 petals per cake pop flower.

Step 5:

Melt the yellow melts, in a microwave safe bowl, running the microwave 30 seconds at a time and stirring each time until totally they are totally melted and smooth. (I took white and added “yellow” cake coloring and it turned orange, so I have orange.)

Step 6:

Dip the end of a sucker stick into the yellow melted chocolate. 

Step 7:

Stick it directly into a doughnut hole.  Let it the yellow melt set (10 minutes in the fridge).   Dip the doughnut hole into the yellow melts and quickly stick the stick into a little x cut into the bottom of an egg carton.  Let set completely, (again 10 minutes in the fridge).

Step 8:

Tick a toothpick in the side of the donut hole, then stick the end of the flower petals into the yellow melts, then stick it in place with the toothpick holding it up.  Repeat until you have marshmallow petals all the way around the donut hole.  Let the flower cake pop rest undisturbed on its back until set.  Then remove the toothpicks. 

Step 9:

Make as many as you want.  What a lovely garden!  Enjoy!

cool! I've done it before but not cake pops they were just marshmallows cut in half then put in sugar and then put on cupcakes to look like flowers!

Lovely! You could also buy a premade cake and just smash it all up! I have definitely used donut holes in the past.
