December is finally here and there are only 24 days left until the big day. I still can’t believe this year has gone by so fast. If you are still thinking of what to make for your upcoming holiday party / Christmas bake exchange, why not give my newest cake pop creation a try? I think these little guys are THE CUTEST things ever! Just look at them all cozy and bundled up in their parkas/jackets with fur-lined hoods. The little pink rosey cheeks make them look like they just came in from the chilly weather outside.
You will need the following items:
• round cake balls (click here to learn how to make cake pop balls)
• white chocolate wafers
• white chocolate wafers colored in orange candy color (drop 1 drop at a time and mix until your desired color is achieved) — This is for making a light peach color. Use different candy color if you want the tanned skin.
• green candy melt
• brown chocolate wafers
• shredded coconut
• mini pink sprinkles
• styrofoam block
• black Americolor edible pen
• pink Americolor edible pen (optional — only if you want to draw in pink cheeks)
• small clear bags and ribbon to package your cake pops (optional)
1 – Dip a lollipop stick into some candy melt and stick it into the cake ball.
2 – Dip the face area into the peach-colored candy.
3 – Dip the rest of the cake ball into the green candy melt. Use a toothpick to cover the chin area. Let it dry completely.
4 – With a toothpick, coat the fur area around the face (approximately 1/4″ thick) with white chocolate wafers and stick shredded coconut on it. Add another layer of white chocolate wafers and shredded coconut to build up the fuzziness. Let it dry completely.
5 – With a toothpick, draw on the hairstyle of your choice using brown chocolate wafers.
6 – Draw on the eyes and mouth with a black edible pen.
7 – Stick 2 mini pink sprinkles on the cheek area. You can also draw on the cheeks with a pink edible pen rather than using sprinkles.

How about we talk cake pops. Cake pops have point of fact end up plainly one of those most mainstream sweet treat slants in years. We have the magnificent Bakerella, Angie Dudley, to thank for acquainting us with such a fun treat. At whatever point I appear at a gathering or get together with cake pops, they are constantly exceptionally generally welcomed and particularly delighted in.
While cake pops are absolutely a fun treat to share and eat, they can be a test to make. I am in no way, shape or form a specialist cake pop producer, however I have invested some energy making cake pops utilizing three distinct techniques, and figured I would assemble that data in one post, also some incredible assets on different locales to help you in making cake pops.
I have been really genuine that I simply don’t love the first technique. I don’t know why – I mean I cherish cake, I adore icing, yet together, it simply doesn’t do it for me. I will state that unique cake pops made with custom made icing taste universes preferred to me over canned icing. The in addition to side of this strategy is you don’t need to purchase any hardware. The drawback to me is baking a cake initially to make them, and I’m frequently so in a rush, that this additional progression is sufficient to influence me to go another way.
