I’m sharing these sweet stuffed stockings from my book, Cake Pops Holidays  with you guys today. (Plus, there’s a holiday giveaway at the end, too!)
These stockings are one of my favorite designs in the book and they’re actually easier to decorate than the look.
You start out by shaping the crumbled cake and frosting into thick socks – the stockings – and then you dip them in melted candy coating.
You can coat the stockings with any color candy wafers that you like, but I went with dark pink, green, and light blue. Still fun and festive without being straight up red and green. After they dry, dip them in melted white coating for the cuffs and then you can start bringing them to life with random sprinkles and decorations.
Or you could leave them toyless, but they’ll be way happier stuffed with toys inside.
Plus, that’s the most fun for me. Playing and finding fun candies to decorate with.
But there are tons of sprinkles that would work. You just need to find simple shapes since the stockings are so small.
Here’s the full how-to from my book.
And today, because the holidays are fast approaching, I’m giving away a copy of my book along with the Frosty Friends Mini Kit .
I’m also giving away my Cake Pops Toy to the lucky winner!
Here’s a few pics of the toy since I haven’t posted them in a while.
The molds that come with the toy could also help make many of the pops in the book, like the presents, Christmas trees, holly, jingle bells, nutcrackers, elves and much more.
P.S. – I’m having a book signing Tuesday, December 10  at Chef Central in Paramus, NJ. If you’re in the area, come say hi… I’d love to meet you!
I just picked the winner and it’s comment #301!
I think Debra is going to be pretty excited. Congratulations! Hope you enjoy the book and toy!
