I get it. Cake Pops are hard to make. I'm always asked how I make them so beautiful. I'm here to share with you little secret to great looking cake pops like these rose cake pops.
I bought the sugar roses at a cake decorating supply store.
That's my secret and I'm not ashamed to let everyone know.
You see, I'm not going to make a batch of Royal Icing just to make sugar roses. I can and I have, but I don't have the time to make pink roses and yellow roses. To make flat flowers and 3D flowers. To make sugared accessories that I can keep stored in a plastic container somewhere in my basement for an indefinite amount of time.
Maybe if I had a cake decorating business, I'd stock up on popular flowers and keep them. But I don't.
These roses came in a nice little 6 pack for maybe three bucks. I just bought the one pack because I thought they would look nice as show pieces in a collection of pops. I got mine from a local Amish grocery store. You can check at baking supply stores in your area or order something like these Royal Icing Roses I found on Amazon.
To add a little glitz and glam, I also sprinkled on bit of Rainbow Disco Dust.
Didn't they come out stunning?
I think they did. Just a simple cake pop dipped in chocolate and then stood up using my perfect bottom technique. As the chocolate is drying, I added the sugar rose and held it in place until it was secure. After all my pops were dipped and flowered, I sprinkled on the disco dust.
That's it. Done!
Now... I've been collecting data and putting my notes together to write my cake pop ebook. I've decided to write a series of books to make it easier for viewers and for me. The first book in the series will focus on making your cake pop dough so that you end up with smooth, round cake pops.
If you have any questions on how to make the cake pop dough, please let me know. I don't want to forget anything.
