Learn how to decorate cake pops easily, using simple ingredients like nuts, sprinkles, candies and much more. Easy enough for beginners!
Today, I am showing you easy ways on how to decorate cake pops that anyone can make without any prior experience.
Do you know who I consider to be a “PRO” at making cake pops?!
Bakerella, of course! She is the QUEEN of cake pops and all her creations are mind blowing.
However, I admit that some of her cake pop creations take quite a bit of TIME to make.
There are days when we are short on time and making extravagant cake pops is out of the question.
So, I thought I would share some EASY ways to decorate cake pops.
Nothing fancy with special cutters or fondant but the end result is still TASTY and CUTE!
I bet you have these INGREDIENTS in your kitchen already:
- Mini chocolate chips
- Sesame seeds
- Shredded coconut
- Colored sugar or sanding sugar
These toasted sesame seed cake pops were my FAVORITE!
I think TOASTING the sesame seeds was a good call…It gave these pops a very distinct flavor and aroma!
The soft cake- like center, the creamy chocolate and the crunchy sesame seeds …I swear it was like a PARTY in my mouth! lol
These coconut cake pops were darn GOOD too!
To learn how to decorate cake pops, you will need the following INGREDIENTS:
Mini chocolate chips
Various nuts (almond, walnuts, pecans, peanuts et.c.)
Here are the INSTRUCTIONS:
Start off by following this easy tutorial to make cake pops.
Then, toast 1 cup each of peanuts, almonds and sesame seeds separately. Roughly chop the almonds and peanuts.
I placed everything (mini chocolate chips, colorful sprinkles, crushed almonds, crushed peanuts, colored sugar, sesame seeds and shredded coconut) on a single plate but it’s better to put all these ingredients in separate containers. That way, it’s easier to cover cake pops in them.
Melt chocolate and use a spoon to pour it over the cake pop…
Until the cake pop is fully covered in chocolate.
Before this chocolate hardens, sprinkle almonds or any other topping of your choice over the pop.
Push the cake pops into a styrofoam block until the chocolate sets and enjoy!
Well, that’s all for today.
I hope you found this tutorial on how to decorate cake pops useful.
Until next time, tata my lovelies!
