Since my first shot at the cake pop, I’ve been busy trying to perfect my technique. I took my own advice on this attempt and chose white candy melts to make the spring confetti really pop.
The lifesaver this time around: disposable candy melt bags. I’m never making cake pops again without this handy dandy device! You can melt and decorate so easily and with virtually no mess. The double-boiler method would still probably give you the best results because it keeps the candy melts at an even temperature for a prolonged period of time, but my life is all about shortcuts these days.
For a fun spring birthday theme, I tried three different pastel confetti designs:
(1) all over confetti
(2) confetti dots
and (3) an ice cream look (covering only the top of the pop)
These were a birthday gift for a friend, so I needed a portable presentation. A beribboned styrofoam block (using colored tacks) worked out perfectly. A few tied ribbons on the cake pop sticks and a rectangular piece of cardstock used as a gift tag completed the present.
