Snowflake Cake Pops

A freaky thing happened in October... It snowed!! I wasn't ready for snow before Halloween! 

Now that it's December, I'm ready for some winter weather. 

I love a day of light snowfall. Everything is fresh and clean. It reminds me of fresh, white linens on a bed. Everything is quiet and peaceful.

And then ya have to deal with shoveling.... Blech! I'd rather hide out in the house and wait for Mother Nature to take care of the mess. 

So, inspired by snow, I made some Snowflake Cake Pops.

Here's what you'll need:
1 8" round cake (your favorite)
1/4 cup complimentary frosting
24 lollipop sticks
2 bags Blue Candy Melts
Wilton Sugar Sheets
Snowflake Craft Punch
Cookie Sheet lined with Wax Paper
Cake Pop Stand

Punch out 24 snowflakes from the Sugar Sheets and set aside.

Crumble the cake into a mixing bowl and mix in the frosting.

Using a Tablespoon, measure out 24 cake balls and place them on the cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Smooth out the balls and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.

While they are in the fridge, slowly melt your candy melts. Don't rush the melting process. it may take 20 minutes to get it smooth and shiny. DO NOT overheat it in the microwave. I place it in the micro for 1 min at 70% power and stir, stir, stir. Then, I heat at 30 second intervals at 70% power.

 Take out a dozen pops and attach the ball to the lollipop stick by dipping a 1/2 inch of the stick into the candy and then inserting it half way into the cake ball.
Once all the pops are on sticks, then dip the cake pop straight down into the candy and pull back up. Do not twist and turn the pop in the candy. Let the excess candy drip off the pop, tapping slightly with your finger. Click here for a video.
Add the Snowflake cut out and any sprinkles to decorate the pop while still wet.
Stand up to dry in a Cake Pop Stand.
I found some fun straws to use in place of the sticks. I just cut off 2 inches to shorten. 
On a few, I left "naked" to dry and added some silver and blue luster dust to give the pop a shimmer and then I used a toothpick to dab some candy and attach the snowflake. Loved the effect!

Let it Snow, let it snow, let it SNOW!!

Enjoy Some Indoor Snowflakes!
