I will only purchase a particular mold when it has multiple uses. I am going to use the same cake pop baking pan to make other shapes to make the cake pops. Acorn shape is pretty cut and easier to make than the round cake pops. Half round cake balls can be stacked to make Christmas trees which are pretty for the holiday season.

Acorn Cake Pops

Yield: 24

 

Ingredients

 

Pound cake batter – 1 recipe portion

Finely chopped almonds

Milk chocolate

Dar chocolate

Lollipop sticks – 24

 

Cake pop baking pan (24 1.6 in half-round molds per pan)

 

Steps

 

  1. Pipe all the cake batter into all molds. Fill each mold to the top.1
  2. The center of the cake will rise after it is baked. It will look like an acorn.2
  3. Once the cakes are cooled, insert the lollipop sticks all the way through the top of the cake pops. The exposed part will be the stem of the acorn. If you are using bamboo skewers, make sure to clip off the sharp tip.4
  4. If each mold is filled with too much cake batter, the cake pop will have a fairly thick edge. Please cut is off otherwise it will look like a flying saucer.5
  5. Cover the entire cake pop with milk chocolate.
  6. Roll the top of the cake pop in finely chopped almonds. Let the chocolate harden. The cake pop is now done.7
  7. You can also cover the almond crusted part with melted dark chocolate. Use your fingers to smooth is over so it looks bumpy. Use cloth pins to hang the cake pops to dry.89

           

The acorn cake pops look great and taste great as well. Kids especially love the acorn cake pops. Many people say the acorn cake pops remind them of the movie “Ice Age”. Take a look: don’t they look similar?

Christmas Tree Cake Pops

Yield: 24

 

Ingredients

 

Pound cake batter – 1 recipe portion

Cream puffs – 24 (see note 1)

White chocolate (see note 2)

Chopped candied dried fruit

Candy stars – 24

Lollipop sticks – 24

 

Cake pop baking pan (24 1.6 in half-round molds per pan)

 

Steps

 

  1. Follow the steps in Part 1 to make 48 half-round cake balls. Pipe 24 bigger ones and 24 smaller ones.1
  2. Cut the bottom of cream puffs to make it flat, melt the white chocolate, and cut the candied dried fruit into very small dices.
  3. Insert the lollipop stick into the large half-round cake, small half-round cake, followed by the cream puff.2
  4. Cover the whole thing in melted white chocolate.3
  5. Add the small candied dried fruit pieces and put the candy star at the top of the tree. Done.完成

 

Note 1:

you can make your little cream puffs. Please refer to my book “Cookies 101”. You may buy them from the bakery but they have to smaller than the small half-round cake. You can also find them in some Asian supermarkets:義美

 

You may already have silicon chocolate molds on hand. These molds are not only great for making chocolates but also good for baking (please refer to manufacturer’s instruction). You can use different ones to assemble them into a cake pop. I am using two molds to make koala cake pops. Be creative! Don’t buy new molds just to make cake pops.

 

Note 2:

if you like green tea flavor, add green powder in the white chocolate to make green Christmas trees.
