White Cake Pops

DSC_3578

These come from the same Oreo Cake Pops batch, but with different decoration. I used the Bright White Wilton Candy melts, because I wanted my cake pops to be really white, not off-white. I like the colour, but I found the texture way to thick to work with.

Rustic Oreo Cake Pops

DSC_3564

I call these rustic because of the rough finish. They are obviously not the perfectly shaped smooth little cake balls you see through the Internet. Not that I mind, because I love the natural rustic look (more and more so these days), but I honestly don’t know how they do it!

No matter how many times I tried (using different candy melts from different brands) mine just never are so perfectly round and smooth. I always follow the instructions from the package, but the texture of the candy is too thick and therefor it can’t cover the cake pops evenly .

If I dip the cake pops in the melted candy they fall down of the sticks. If I pour the chocolate directly on the cake pops it wont flow, and needs to be “fixed” with a knife. Either way it’s just not right. Makes me think that there is something missing, some sort of secret ingredient which needs to be added in order to make perfect results. Also, maybe cake pops are NOT my specialty and maybe I should just make my peace with it and get over it πŸ™‚

An the other hand these tasted very good though! Oreo biscuits smashed and mixed with cream and crafted in balls. Yummy…. Oreo fans, these are calling for you! πŸ™‚

Chocolate Beehive Cupcakes

…or more like Busy Bees on top of Walnut Whip chocolates from Nestle.

I saw the pack of this chocolate in the store some time ago and I thought it would look great on cupcakes with just a little personal touch from me. Which was that I chopped off the walnut from the top of the chocolate and I placed (with food glue) a tiny bumble bee instead which I made in like 5 minutes from fondant. Aren’t they cute? πŸ™‚

Here is some trivia about this chocolate for you that I found on Google…

“The Walnut Whip really is a long serving confectionery classic – it was launched in 1910 and is Nestle’s oldest brand. Here is some trivia for you; more than a million walnuts are used every week in the production of Walnuts Whips.

Historically there have been variations of flavour, including maple and coffee flavours, but in the modern age the only flavour available is the best – classic vanilla.

Walnut Whips comprise a soft and fluffy walnut centre that is protected by an outer shell of milk chocolate, all topped off with a delicious walnut.”
