Three Ideas for Decorating Christmas Cake Pops
Snowman Cake Pops
For snowman cake pops, you just need cake balls, white chocolate candy coating, the sticks, and a few extra accessories. Make one small ball and one ball slightly larger. Place the larger ball on the stick first with the smaller one on top. Melt the candy coating in the microwave, following the directions on the package. Dip the cake pop into the coating and shake to remove any excess.
Use a little of the melted candy coating to attach decorations to the snowman. A small orange candy serves as the nose, while tiny black candies or sprinkles act as the buttons, eyes, and mouth. Roll out a piece of soft candy. Cut two small discs from the candy and one thin strip. Attach the strip to the top of the head and one disc on each end, creating a cute pair of earmuffs.
Christmas Tree Cake Pops
For Christmas tree cake pops, shape the cake mixture into cones. Insert a stick into the bottom of each cake pop so that the pointed end faces the top. Melt white chocolate candy discs in the microwave. Add a few drops of green food coloring and mix well. Dip the cake pops into the green mixture.
Sprinkle coconut flakes over the top to mimic the look of fresh snow. Affix small candies to the sides of the cake pop, using the candies as ornaments. For a twist, add green food coloring to the coconut flakes, stir and let dry. Dip the cake pops into the green coconut flakes. The coconut resembles the scraggly look of a Christmas tree.
Snow Globe Cake Pops
Create cake pops that resemble holiday snow globes. Form the cake mixture into small balls and set to the side. Insert a square gum drop onto the stick. Roll the cake balls in candy coating tinted blue with food coloring. Let the candy coating dry and slide the ball onto the stick with the gum drop underneath.
Melt more candy coating and use it to design snow globe decoration on the front. Dip a toothpick in the coating and create a snowman on the front. Sprinkle sugar crystals over the piece or use larger sugar crystals and apply with candy coating. The finished pieces make the perfect Christmas cake pop treat.
