I have talented friends.
Yes, it’s true.
I head hunted this friend off of Facebook, where she had innocently posted her daughter’s birthday cake and cake pops for all to see and I knew immediately that I had to have her come and make a video with me! The cake pops were so cute, perfect for kids, and she put them together using Timbits (the Canadian version of doughnut holes). Genius!
Careful what you post friends. I may want to set you up to work with me on camera.
Thankfully Stephanie was game and super eager to come and show off her talents, and her sister’s handmade apron Stephanie is a wonderfully talented photographer (www.stephaniemoorephoto.com). We originally met through the local wedding business scene (and a mutual friend). Since she’s so incredibly funny, we hit it off right away . . . and thus, a friendship was born.
Check out our video with Stephanie where she teaches me how to make Cow Cake Pops! And make sure you like her on Facebook.
• donut holes or cake balls
• white melting chocolate
• assorted color melting wafers
• pink jelly beans
• cake pop sticks
• black piping gel
To make these cow cake pops, dip the cake pop stick into the melted chocolate, and then into the donut hole. Allow to harden. Once the chocolate on the stick has hardened, dip the donut hole into the melted chocolate to coat thoroughly. Allow to dry and add another coat if needed.
Once the chocolate coating has hardened, you can start decorating it by applying the ears and horns. Cut a coloured melting wafer into ear shapes, and the white chocolate wafers into horn shapes, and insert each into the top of the cake pop.
Using melting chocolate on the jelly bean, attach it to the front of the cake pop. Using the black piping gel, add the eyes, nostrils and black spots onto the cow.
