Peppermint Candy Cake Pops

When I should have been preparing for Christmas Dinner, I was making Peppermint Candy Cake Pops, please don't tell.  Even if you don't have time to make them this year, I do believe Christmas will come again and you'll have time to make them for next year.

A few supplies needed are...
 
Small wooden skewers.
 
White cake pop sticks.
 
Fondant roller.
 
Fondant tools.
 
 Start by rolling out a piece of white fondant. 
 
Cut two round pieces for each peppermint candy cake pop.
 
Roll the edges thin.
 
Fold the edges together and pinch the bottom.
 
Roll the bottom between your fingers to make it come to a point.
 
Let the fondant ruffle dry overnight or until stiff.

Use Wilton Bright White candy melts.
 
Melt in melting cup or microwave safe dish.

Make your favorite cake ball recipe.
 
Dip the end of the white cake pop stick into the melted candy melts.
 
Insert into the cake pop.
 
As soon as you finish dipping the cake pop, insert a wooden skewer into the sides of the cake pop, making a hole for the ruffle. 
 
Let the cake pop coating dry, then carefully remove the wooden skewer by twisting gently.
 
Dip the end of the ruffle into the candy melts and insert into each side of the cake pop.
 
Roll and cut a spiral out of red fondant.
 
Make a red fondant string by using a clay gun and wrap a small piece around the ruffle.
 
Add the spiral to the center.
 
If you don't have a spiral cutter, you could pipe a bit of frosting in the center.
 
Now you've got yourself a Peppermint Candy Cake Pop.
 
It's just what Santa ordered, so leave a few by the chimney.
 

This is what I ordered...Fudgy Pudding Cake Pops!
 
 
And now, I've got to go start cooking, or our Christmas dinner will consist of cake pops instead of pork tenderloin.  And I do make a good port tenderloin.  How about you, what's on your table this Christmas?  How ever you spend the day, I wish you a...
 
Very Merry Christmas!

  2. I thought the same thing about cake pops, but you've done it and come up with something new. I love them. I need to ask Santa for one of those swirl cutters. I actually don't have that one!
