Rudolph Cake Pop Tutorial
Baked cake of your choice. Packet mix is perfectly acceptable. I've used homemade mud cake as it doesn't require any icing to bind it together.
Chocolate melts or chopped chocolate (milk or dark)
Copha if required
Red smarties or m&ms
Icing eyes or round lollies
Deep microwavable bowl
Brown pipe cleaners
Crumble your cold baked cake into fine crumbs.
Squeeze your cake crumbs to form balls approximately 3-3.5cms in diameter...
Make a batch of buttercream and tint it the colour you require.
Give your cake a crumb coat ready to pipe the 'petals'.
Using a round piping tip pipe a vertical row of dots .
I've used a 1cm tip on this cake.
Using a palette knife gently 'squash' each dot with the tip of your palette knife and drag slightly.
Continue this process around the entire cake. You will have a 'seam' at the back.
Follow the same process on the top of the cake or you can also pipe the dots/petals in a spiral pattern.
