Wedding Cake Pops  

As prepared by tbspSusan

Typically the bride and groom feed cake to each other -- but in this case, the bride and groom are the cake!


Say "I do" to the tastiest wedding favors this side of the chapels in Las Vegas -- Wedding Cake Pops! And they're easier to decorate than the church, too.

First, let's give credit where credit is due. While I'd love to claim to have first created this darling duo, the idea is borrowed from the most awesomest book on cake pops out there: Cake Pops by Bakerella.

Grab a cake mix and let's get creating some couples!

Supplies and Ingredients


First, you'll need a box of Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix and a tub of Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy ready-to-spread vanilla frosting:

You'll also need some styrofoam blocks, sucker sticks and little plastic bags. Find all of this stuff in your fave craft place.

And for the tasty ingredients, you'll also need 16 oz. of white chocolate candy, 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips, and any decorations you want -- sprinkles, food glitter, non-perils, and the like.

Bake and Crumble


Bake the cake according to the package directions (using egg whites to make the cake as white as possible).

Allow to cool completely, then cut the cake into 12 big pieces. I wanted perfectly white cake pops inside, so I skimmed off the golden tops and bottoms of the cake pieces with a sharp knife. That left just the fluffy white part to finely crumble into a bowl like this:

I have to admit, crumbling the cake was both fun and strangely stress-relieving, so I kept going until the crumbs were really crumby:

Add the Frosting


Add 3/4 of the tub of frosting to the cake crumbs and mix it in with the back of a big spoon. You won't need the rest of the tub of frosting. (Using it here will make the mixture too moist.) It'll look like this:

See how the crumbs stick together now ...

Roll 'em!


I used my 1-1/2" cookie scoop to make uniform-sized balls that are a bit bigger than a quarter:

Wedding Cake Pops



Take the scoop of cake mixture and rub it between your palms until you have a nice, firm ball shape. Place the balls on a wax-paper (or foil) lined tray or pan. The recipe makes a boat load of balls -- 48, actually:

Loosely place plastic wrap over the balls and place the tray in the fridge for an hour or so.

Coat 'em


Melt 16 oz. of white chocolate candy in the top of a double boiler (or microwave). Keep the candy warm and fluid while you work.

Dip about 1/2" of the end of a stick into the melted candy, then push it about 1/3 of the way into a cake ball. Set the ball upside down on a wax-paper-covered tray. Repeat until all cake balls are done. Allow the sticks to set up so they are secure in the cake balls. (Chill in the freezer, if necessary, to make sure they are secure before proceeding.)

Then, holding the end of each stick, dip the cake ball quickly and completely into the melted candy. Tap the stick gently on the side of the pan or bowl to allow excess candy to drip off, then poke the stick into a Styrofoam block and allow the cake pop to set up until hard.

Dress the Bride and Groom


After that, it's a piece of cake to get these kids hitched!

Wedding Cake Pops

For the brides: Pipe white candy onto the cake pop in any pattern you desire, then immediately sprinkle with food glitter or white sugar so the design pops like lace. Add dots to the top to look like a necklace.

For the grooms: Melt a half bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave or double boiler. Dip each side of the cake pop into the chocolate to form the tux coat. Decorate with piped chocolate or mini-chocolate chips (like I did) for the bow tie and buttons.

Packaging


Packaging is half the fun and adds 100% to the presentation, so don't skimp on this step! (It also hides a multitude of sins, so if your cake pops turned out less than perfect, no worries! Package like a champ and you'll get all the "Oooo"s and "Ahhhh"s you hoped for!)

When the cake pops are completely set and dry, place them in small plastic candy bags and tie with ribbon or beads. Way cute!

Wedding Cake Pops

Ingredients

1
Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix
1
Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy ready-to-spread vanilla frosting
16
ounces white-chocolate candy (as for almond bark)
12
ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (for tux coats on grooms)
48
sucker sticks (found in craft stores)
48
small plastic bags (found in craft stores, for packaging)
(for
ribbon packaging)
(as
sprinkles, food glitter, mini chocolate chips desired, for decorating)
(to
large Styrofoam block hold pops upright while drying)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Prepare cake mix according to the package directions (using egg whites to make the cake as white as possible). Bake as directed, removing from oven when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the cake springs back to the touch.
  • 2 Allow to cool completely, then cut the cake into 12 big pieces. For perfectly white cake pops inside, skim off the golden tops and bottoms of the cake pieces with a sharp knife. Finely crumble the remaining white cake into a large bowl.
  • 3 Add 3/4 of the tub of frosting to the cake crumbs and mix it in with the back of a big spoon. Reserve the remaining 1/4 tub of frosting for another use. (Do not add it to the crumbs or the mixture will become too moist.)
  • 4 Roll cake mixture into 48 balls, each about 1-1/2 inch in diameter. Place balls on a wax-paper-lined tray or baking sheet. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to cool in the refrigerator for an hour.
  • 5 Melt 16 oz. of white chocolate candy in the top of a double boiler (or microwave). Keep the candy warm and fluid while you work. Dip about 1/2 inch of the end of a stick into the melted candy, then push it about 1/3 of the way into a cake ball. Set the ball upside down on the wax-paper-covered tray. Repeat until all cake balls are done. Allow the sticks to set up so they are secure in the cake balls. (Set tray in the fridge to chill if necessary.)
  • 6 Holding the end of each stick, dip the cake ball quickly and completely into the melted candy. Tap the stick gently on the side of the pan or bowl to allow excess candy to drip off, then poke the stick into a styrofoam block and allow the cake pop to set up upright until hard.
  • 7 For the brides: Pipe white candy onto the cake pop in any pattern you desire, then immediately sprinkle with food glitter or white sugar so the design pops like lace. Add dots to the top to look like a necklace.
  • 8 For the grooms: Melt 12 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave or double boiler. Dip each side of the cake pop into the chocolate to form the tux coat. Decorate with piped chocolate or mini-chocolate chips for the bow tie and buttons.
  • 9 When the cake pops are completely set and dry, place them in small plastic candy bags and tie with ribbon or beads.
