Christmas Cake Pops

To give to my friends for Christmas I decided to make some version of Bakerella's cake pops but I decided to make my own version. I made Snowmen, Christmas Puddings and Rudolphs yayyy :). They look so sweet and Im so pleased with how they turned out they are so cute and I really dont want to give them away to anyone!! I hope my friends appreciate how much I did and still while Im ill hehe :). I had to drive for miles to go and get the cake pops...and what a hassle for the snowmen's hats!! I thought that I would use mini oreos and mini rolos...to find that the mini oreos were very...very...mini.. they looked ridiculous and nothing like a hat and nobody did any mini rolos near us so I had to to settle for mini munchies as I had given a tube of mini rolos to my friend for Christmas, if only I could have got them back...! So off it was to get normal size Oreos to find that the mini Munchies were too small...so I had to buy a pack of ordinary Rolos again!! Such hassle all for a Snowmans hat!! Anyway Im pleased how they worked out :).

How to make :

1.Bake a cake, I used chocolate cake, and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes, once cooled crumble into a bowl and mix with buttercream.
2. Make small balls from the cake mixture and set onto baking paper on a baking tray and allow to firm up in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
3. Melt milk and white chocolate, dip 2/3 of the cake balls into milk chocolate and 1/3 into white. Dip the sticks into the corresponding chocolate and insert into cake balls. Chill until chocolate has set.
4. Decorate as you wish.

For Mr Reindeer I used :
Chocolate cake
Milk Chocolate
White Fondant
Food colouring pen
Mini Red Smartie
Twiglets






Mr Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer!!


For Frosty I used:
Half an Oreo
A rolo

Frosty the Snowman!!



For Clarence the Christmas Pudding I used :
Chocolate Cake
Milk Chocolate
White chocolate
Red Mini Smarties

These are terrible. More effort required. I give this a D- since you managed to put these "cakes" on a stick; the only redeeming feature. Regard the clock, Stein and Ned.
