What is it about Father's Day that makes finding the perfect gift such a challenge? This year instead of another patterned tie or pair of slippers, melt your super Dad's heart with these Super Hero Cake Pops made especially for him!
Supplies for Super Hero Cake PopsTo make Super Hero Cake Pops you will need:
• Cake pops on sticks, made from your favorite cake pop recipe
• Blue candy melts
• Red soft eating liquorice or Fruit Roll Ups
• Red disco dust
• Meringue powder
• A small, food-safe paint brush
• A styrofoam block or cake pop stand
Start by cutting your Fruit Roll Ups or liquorice into the shapes of super hero capes and chest emblems. Fold the narrower edge of the cape upward so that it will attach to your cake pops. (If you are using liquorice, you will need to flatten the candy with a rolling pin before cutting your shapes.)
Create a mixture of half meringue powder and half water. Use a small food-safe paint brush to apply a light coating of the mixture to your capes and chest emblems. Before the coating dries, sprinkle the shapes with disco dust to add some super hero sparkle. After the coating dries, gently shake off any excess disco dust and get ready to dip your cake pops.
