Today I am showing you how to make Rainbow Rose Cake Pops for your Mom for Mother’s Day! Roses are always a wonderful gift to give, but what about trying to make roses that your mom can eat for dessert?! And since you’re on a roll, you might as well make them rainbow roses!
These mini milkshakes are ADORABLE! Thanks to my guest host Paityn for helping me put these together. They’re super easy to do with kids and would make for a fun birthday party assembly activity.
TURTLE POWER! Having grown up in the 80′s with only a brother to be entertained by, I was “forced” to play with his Ninja Turtles, and “forced” to watch the TV show a time or two! I guess that was payback for making him play Barbies and My Little Pony!
When I heard there was a new 2014 movie coming out, I knew I had to make a cake- for remembrance sake! I can’t say I’ve kept up on the on goings of the Turtles since the 80′s and while making the video for this cake, I had to research which Turtle was which; Michelangelo is the orange mask, Donatello the blue, Raphael the red one, and Leonardo wears the purple mask. Don’t ask me which one has which weapon though! I obviously didn’t pay much attention to role play when we were with Splinter in sewer! I don’t think it’s a toy or series that really warrants much deep thought- why are turtles running around on two legs being ninja’s in the sewer?
I think this is a perfect cake and cake pop idea for those of our viewers that have been asking for it, as well as “boy” themed cakes ideas. For this cake I use TMNT cake pops to place into the top of the cake, and they provide a fun little extra for four special party goers! I hope all the children of the 80′s and the kids of today (a whole new generation that loves the Turtles), enjoy this cake idea!
Turtles in a half shell!
In our final Mother’s Day idea for 2014, we are working on Flower Pot Cake Pops!! Yes, in the video introduction I accidentally say “cupcakes”, so don’t be confused! They’re cake pops!! All I can say is, “Oops.” Forgive me.
What I like about these cake pops is that they are bright and cheery, which is perfect for any spring time celebration, and definitely perfect for a wonderful Mom! You can make the pots any colour that you want, and for mine, I chose to use the new Peanut Butter melting wafers from Merckens. I had previously seen them at Bulk Barn (where I get many of my supplies) and thought that they would be a good colour for these flower pots. The wafers melted perfectly, and they also tasted great! Just like peanut butter chips.
I love being able to incorporate parts of previous projects in new ideas, such as using the mini royal icing daisies that I made a couple of weeks ago with cupcakes (link below in the ingredients), as a topper to these cake pops. I always seem to end up with extra flowers whenever I make them, which is a good thing in case of breakage, so when I was planning on what type of flowers to use for these cake pops, the daisies literally fell out of storage, saying “Pick us! Pick us!”
This is a pretty straight forward cake pop tutorial, but as always, if you have any questions, just let me know in the comments!
”Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can . . . spins a web . . . something, something . . .”
Obviously I should work on my theme song lyrics before trying to sing them to you.
The new Spiderman movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is coming out in a couple of weeks, and I’m super excited to see it. I think that’s because I spent hours watching the 80′s cartoon version at home with my brother. I’m one of those nostalgic type people who usually prefers the original version over the new, revamped versions of old shows, but in this case, I’m super excited to see the new effects that are worked into the current version! As a kid I always wanted web-shooters, and to be able to climb up buildings to see what was on top. But, instead what I got as an adult is Spider-man cake pops.
These cake pops are a tad bit tedious and will definitely take some time to put together. You may not want to make a 100 of these, but 12 would be manageable. There are a number of other ways to make the web on the mask of the cake pop, but I found the most clean version was to use fondant. You could try it with melted chocolate, but I don’t usually have luck with precision work when it comes to melted chocolate on top of cake pops. I prefer to use that combination when things can be a little messier.
I hope that you find this tutorial workable for your Spiderman project!
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Here comes the Spiderman. “
Happy March! Now that it is officially March, I can start thinking all things St Patrick’s Day! And all things Spring, but that is WAY too much to ask here in Canada. So I’ll stick to Leprechauns and Pot’s of Gold. I think that every kid has once thought that if they could just get to the end of that rainbow, there would be a gleaming pot of gold at the end of it. I’m still trying to find it, aren’t you? I think I’ll have better odds if I take up playing the lottery. Aren’t your odds of winning the lottery less than they are of being struck by lightning? I guess that means that my odds of finding a pot of gold are even slimmer than the lottery. Besides, playing the lottery is a lot less work! It’s mountainous around these ‘ere parts. It’s me and the lottery now.
Since now that I’ve given up trying to find the end of the rainbow, I’ll just have to stick with making a pot of gold!! Making these cake pops is pretty standard, but with a little twist of putting them upside down, voila, you have the rim of the pot!! Genius, I know. Since it takes the royal icing rainbow so long to dry, you might want to start with those a day early. If you can’t find black melting chocolate, you can also use brown. I tried brown in my practice versions, and it looked great too! Also, when it comes to the yellow sugar pearls, you can use any small round sprinkle/candy for the “gold”, or even just regular yellow/gold sanding sugar.
Have fun, and good luck searching.
I’m off to buy a lottery ticket.
