When I do characters, I try to make them as similar to the original as possible. Firstly, with these printed topper cake pops, the colour has to match so the effect is seamless. The size of the topper also has to be in proportion to the cake pop and the shape of the cake pop […]
As I go along, I make tweaks to the cake pops I have made before. In this case, I gave Minnie a bigger bow. I also notice I am not the only one evolving. Minnie used to be red, as the perfect pair to Mickey. She’s now pink! Well, I guess pink rules!
So these are version 2.0 of my Batman cake pops with the logo. In version 1.0, which I did several times, I had to hand cut the Bat sign because I could not find a cutter small enough to cut a Bat that would land on a cake pop. On my 100th attempt, I finally […]
I tried to make the dresses as per the actual princess gowns. Since they were all for one party, I wanted to give each its own flair. Jasmine got a luster sparkle, Ariel got edible pink glitter, Cinderella got a silver sparkle and Snow White got a shiny glaze. I love Belle’s gown most […]
I did two renditions of a silver crown and pink pop recently, so I will just post them at one go here. I’ve been making so many cake pops, it’s hard to keep up with the photos and the blogging!
All my cake pops are custom made, so I especially love it when I am asked to make something based on something in real life. In this case, it was the birthday girl’s dress! I was sent a picture of the dress, a mix of hot pink, and silver and frills, and did my best […]
Su is a bit finicky and set in her ways. Because she is where the buck stops, this is what we do and don’t do : What we won’t do We don’t freeze cakes (some people say you can’t tell the difference, but Su can) We don’t make our cake pop dough gummy enough to […]
This Frozen crown ones challenged my piping skills a bit at first. Trying to pipe chocolate on a spherical surface before the chocolate cools and hardens completely in the piping bag is a pain, I tell you. It’s a good thing I love challenges. I had to throw away a number of cake pops because […]
I buy stuff all the time, just because I think they may come in handy. In this case, I bought these anchor moulds just because they happened to be the right size for a cake pop. I had a play with them with some leftover chocolate one day, and this is what emerged.
Sometimes, a design doesn’t need to be that complicated. Putting hands and legs and painting eyes on cake pops increases the time to make them tremendously, and that corresponds with an increase in price. After all, I get paid per hour, just like anyone else. A true blue Shopkins fan will know these are Shopkins […]
