I'd never made cake pops covered in fondant, so I thought it was worth a try. It was a little difficult to wrap them, but I think they look pretty cute :)
Step 1: Supplies
- Cake Mix of Choice
- Marshmallow Fondant - I made a double batch for the Valentine Rice Krispie Treats and had about half left (which is the 8oz recipe), this seemed good for coving the cake pops, but if you want to decorate them with more fondant, you are going to need to make a bit more.
- Bag of Marshmallows (I used 8 oz)
- Sprinkles if you would like
- Heart Cookie Cutters (or you can freehand it) I like to get a lot of use out of things I buy so it's nice to invest if you can be inventive :)
Step 2: Make
Bake a cake.
Let it cool. I broke it into 6 pieces to try to speed the cooling.
Crumble the cake.
Heat up marshmallows in microwave. I went about a minute at a time at half power and then stirred and heated again till melted.
Mix melted marshmallow and cake. You can put this in the fridge for a bit, but I found it wasn't necessarily helpful.
Time to form them!
I went with a similar method as the Rice Krispie Treats. I shoved the mixture into the cookie cutter, but then I heaped it a bit to make it a bit more round. Photo 7 shows this.
Don't put these in the fridge or freezer if you can help it. If the cake mixture is cold, when you put the marshmallow fondant on them it gets all wet and sticky.
