Wedding Cake Pops DIY Video



I’m linking this post to two fabulous link parties- Motivate Me Monday and Made by You Mondays.  There are so many great blog posts linked to these two blogs, there is something to inspire everyone.


I’m sure I’ve posted about making cake pops a few times.  I was just thinking about the ones we made for the wedding and how delicious they were.  I could really go for one right now.  I have to settle for this photo instead.

I was, however, inspired to put together a quick video of us making about 400 cake pops.  We made three flavors:  coca cola, white cake, and red velvet cake.  All the cake was homemade.  I froze it but I found out it would have been ok to leave it out to dry out a bit.  Regardless, the dough turned out fine and they were so delicious.

We dipped the pops in white chocolate as apposed to candy melts.  It made a huge difference in flavor, although I was advised the dipping process was a little more difficult because of the chocolate.  I guess the candy melts have more paraffin so it doesn’t run as easily?  I don’t know but I do know I do not care for the plastic taste and consistency of candy melts.


I hope you enjoyed this video.  Thanks for stopping by.  Any cake recipes will do but if you would like to know which ones we used, email me or leave me a comment.
