A few years ago (wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long!) I made cake pops displayed on a wedding cake for my sister-in-law’s bridal shower. Well, she hired me to make the same thing for her sister’s shower, which was this past weekend. This was a fun project, so I was happy to do it again, and play with different colors and decorations.
Her main color was teal, so I tried to go for an ombre effect, with different shades of teal. I found this great sequin flower trim at M&J Trimming in the city (this store is crazy fun if you like crafts), and cut the flowers out individually to glue them on the Styrofoam cake. They really tied in all the colors.
I made the same flavors as last time, except that I substituted the vanilla flavor with my new favorite, sugar cookie. Each tier was a different flavor.
One other great thing I recently found in my travels is clear crystal sugar. My new favorite cake store, The Chocolate Duck, has all different colors and textures of sugar in little baggies. They were quite reasonably priced, which prompted me to experiment a bit. The crystal sugar still lets the color of the pop show through, and the texture and sweetness is perfect, especially for the sugar cookie flavored pop. And they look so pretty!
Everyone needs more cake pops in their life, don’t you think? 😉
