Step 1: Step 1
White Vanilla Cake – One 8” Cake
Heavy Whipping Cream – 4 Tbsp or as needed (Not whipped cream)
White Chocolate Blanco Candy Melts (I used Wilton)
Red Food Color - Few Drops
Veg Shortening or Flavorless Cooking Oil
Pop Sticks or Wooden sticks
Sprinkles to Decorate
•Crumble the cake without any big lumps.
•Add whipping cream to the crumb cake and make it moist to roll shapes.
•Don't add too much cream, able to hold shapes thats it (Pic 1).
•Line a tray with parchment/wax paper and make shapes using cookie cutter.
•I have made small n medium heart shapes to stack one over another (Pic 2).
Step 2: Step 2
•Take the candy melts in a heat proof safe bowl, using double boiler method(Steam melt) or over boiling water melt the candies (Pic 3).
•Now add Oil/vegetable shortening (I used both), food color n bring to dropping consistency (Pic 4).
•These melted candies dry out soon, so melt in batches/small quantity.
•Apply melted candy at the back of small heart shaped cake n press it over the big one (Pic 6).
•You can make single layer cake too.
•Insert the sticks half way through.
•Dip the whole cake in to the candy melts with a help of spoon lift it up and tap gently to remove excess (Pic 8).
•Use some sprinkles n decorate the cake pops.
•Use any thermocoal or whatever available at home to place the cake pops(Pic 9).
•It will dry out in another 3-5mins.
•After dipping n drying out all cake pops, I decorated with colorful sprinkles.
•If doing so apply some same candy melt to the back of each sprinkle n place it over the cake pops (Pic 10).
1.You may need to sprinkle whipping cream when you feel the cake dried out while making shapes.
2.The shaped cakes should not melt at any time.
3.As a beginner you can take few at a time from freezer and dip it.
4.The cake pops once done n dried, refrigerate it to avoid the inner cake melting and coming separately from stick.
