Pop Star: Ashley in North Dakota


“I just wanted to send some photos of the Oreo truffles I have made. My co-workers go absolutely bananas over these! I wish I could show you what 80 excited engineers look like, because it’s pretty amusing. Thank you for everything!” – Ashley

Oh my gosh. These are stunning! They are beautiful. What are those flowers made of? Fondant? Did you make those by hand? Great job with these. Bet they were a HUGE hit!

Thank you for your kind comment, Deborah! I made the flowers out of marshmallow fondant and attached them before the chocolate dried. Pretty easy way to jazz up a truffle

Ok, Ashley, I just went to your Flickr account and looked at your a-mazing cupcake creations. Wow. Just wow. The autumn cupcakes are so beautiful, they could be in the Martha Stewart magazine. So so beautiful! You are muy talented!

Ashley, love your Oreo truffles!!!!!! It’s the first time that I see this site and I’m really excited with all the beautiful things I found here. It will take me no time to be another fan of Bakerella. I just ordered her Cake Pops book and I’m just waiting to receive it to start doing those beautiful pops.

Would like to know if someone can tell me in which Bakerella book I can find the Oreo truffle recipe. I think this recipe should be delicious.

Just curious….if you want to add sprinkles or coconut or something to the top of them, do you do it right after dipping the ball nto the choc? If that is the case, would this mean you have to dip then decorate, dip then decorate, etc?

Hi Jen,
I’ll dip a few truffles and then sprinkle/decorate them. It actually goes faster than it sounds, and before you know it, you’re done!

Hi Leneka,

I use a large drop flower tip (Wilton 1B). Really easy and pretty! And thanks!

How do you dip yours? When I make them, they do not come out looking quite so pretty. Do you use a special dipping tool or a fork?

Hi Jessica,
I did not see your comment until now – sorry! When I dip the truffles I plop them into the chocolate, make sure they’re covered and then pull them out with a small spoon. I think the trick is to do a lot of tapping to get the excess chocolate off (as Bakerella does when she makes cake pops). Hope that helps!

Ashley –

How did you get that beautiful baby blue color? I’m making some soon for a wedding and that color is perfect!

Ashley in North Dakota said...

Hi Kim,
I used light blue chocolate melts and then added just a touch of blue candy color gel. For the fondant I used a sky blue gel food coloring. Hope that helps, and good luck with the wedding!

wow these are so cute!!!! Im making my first batch for my sisters wedding shower next wkd…a little nervous! I was going to put them on sticks..but than i seen these…you put the whole ball in the melted chocolate and than take it out with a spoon? do you plop it into the wrappers right away? or do you keep them on sticks until they are firm and than put them in there?? Can you please email me steph.moreira@yahoo.ca..I would appreciate so much!

Hello everyone! I live in Australia. I had an oreo pop at a child’s birthday recently and it was yummy. I have never even heard of a cake pop. What exactly is it? Sounds interesting :) I am fascinated :)

Um, cake balls are basically ground up cake mixed with frosting to create a batter-like texture. They are then dipped into candy melts or chocolate bark
