The cake was an easy idea: a giant Lego.
The treat: a Lego pop with Star Wars in mind.
If you are looking for fabulous cake pops, check out Bakerella's site. I've made brownie pops for Christmas and they turned out delicious, but I didn't have the time or energy for something as detailed as brownie or cake pops. I went for a variation: marshmallow pops.
Look at these adoreable pops!
Here's what you'll need:
- 15- 20 Regular size marshmallows
- 15 - 20 mini marshmallows
- 15-20 pop sticks (I found mine at Michael's)
- Yellow candy coating melts
- black edible writing pen
- 1-2 foam floral blocks
- Melt candy coating per package directions. About 3 minutes on half power, stirring every 30 seconds.
- Place 1 stick in the middle of a large marshmallow.
- Stand pop in the foam block.
- Moisten bottom of mini marshmallow with water and place it on top of large one.
- Be sure to allow it to dry. You don't want water mixing with the candy melts.
- Carefully dip pop into melted candy and roll to coat pop.
- Gently tap pop against side of candy coating bowl to allow excess coating to drip off.
- Return pop to foam to dry.
- When completely hardened and dry, draw faces with edible marker. (Note: I purchased the Wilton edible markers and they were horrible. I do not recommend them. I returned my to the store. I found some on Amazon I'm ordering for my next decoration.)
So here's hoping you learn from my lesson and have fun making some for your family.
Happy Baking, Laurie
