Cake Pop Project: Mickey Mouse Silhouette

Cake pops are simply crumbled cake, mixed with frosting, shaped, stuck in lollipop sticks and dipped in melted chocolates. From the single recipe of your favorite cake recipe, you can create so many shapes and characters...the possibilities are endless.

Next to cupcakes, this is I think the latest craze now.

Remember the time when you enjoyed playing with your clays? Yup! It is as fun as making these treats...the only difference is you got to eat your "creations"! How fun is that?

Got the inspiration from Angie Dudley of Bakerella, the Queen of all cake pops! Her imagination is crazy awesome!!! Since I discovered her blog, I have been dreaming of making my own cake pops. And when I completed all the ingredients, including the "courage", and found the perfect time, I made a batch...and lookie!!!


Sorry for the picture, heheh! Looks pretty decent for a first timer huh?  '

For instructions on how to make these, please check this link.

Note:
1. I used Pillsbury Devil's Food cake mix.

2. In the recipe, they used Wilton candy melts for the dip and sadly, the brand is no longer available in Living Well (slow moving daw), I used Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips instead. If you'll be using the white chocolate, you need to color it but please make sure to USE OIL-BASED FOOD COLORING. I found Wilton food coloring from living well and it costs P200+ for a set of 4 colors.

3. For Mickey's ears, I bought Goya Easy Melt Chocolate buttons.

4. Betty Crocker frostings are available in major supermarkets. This is the one that I used.

If you want homemade, please check here.

5. Will the frosting make the cake too sweet? Nope, just the right sweetness.

Enjoy!
