The easiest cake pops are tennis balls, colorful balls, and Christmas balls. For bakers who are familiar with handling chocolates, it will be an easy task. Chocolate covered cake pops can keep for a longer period of time and good for shipping.
Tennis Ball Cake Pops
- Cover the entire cake pop with melted white chocolate. Shake off the excess and let it harden.
- Cover the white chocolate covered cake pop with yellow chocolate (melted white chocolate with yellow food coloring). Shake off the excess.
- Use a chop stick to curve out the tennis ball seam lines while holding the cake pop firmly with the other hand by the lollipop stick.
- The cute tennis cake pop is done once the yellow chocolate layer hardens completely. You can use the same technique to create other types of balls used in sports for any sports fan.
Colorful Ball Cake Pops
- Cover the cake pop with any shade of melted chocolate of your choice.
- Add the colorful sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.
Christmas Ball Cake Pops
- Cover the cake pop with the melted chocolate. Let it cool and harden.
- Put different colored melted chocolate (melted white chocolate with different food colors) into small pastry bags. Pipe different designs (e.g. snow flakes, stars) onto the surface of the cake pop.
- Sprinkle the cake pop with sugar before the chocolate hardens to make the cake pop more Christmas like.
- This is a cake pop covered with purple chocolate and reindeer design.
Owl Cake Pops
Many people like me love owl cake pops! It is very cute and easy to make plus no food coloring is needed.
The beak of the owl is a sun flower seed. You can buy the ready-made chocolate ears, eyes, and wings but you can also make your own. Dip the chop stick into melted chocolate and let it drop onto the parchment paper. It is ready to use when it is hardened. You can easily control the size and shape of these chocolate pieces. The thickness of these chocolate owl parts depends on how thin or thick the melted chocolate is. Almost hardened chocolate will produce thicker pieces.
- Use melted dark chocolate to make the ears and wings. Use melted white chocolate to make the eyes. Make more than you need so you can pick the best pieces for the owl cake pops.
- Chocolate ears need to be made with almost hardened chocolate. Look at the shape in the picture. Use a little bit of melted chocolate to glue the ears onto the cake pop. Let the glue harden.
- Cover the whole cake pop with melted dark chocolate. Add the white chocolate eyes.
- Add a sun flower seed as the beak. Dot the white chocolate eye with dark chocolate as the iris.
- Add the wings to the side of the cake pops. Viola!
