Wedding Cake Pops

Wedding Cake Pops

I’ve received a ton of requests for wedding cake pops so I thought today would be a good time to show you some. Here’s a simple wedding cake shape that you can use and decorate as you desire.

Read the basic instructions for making cake pops, and then use following directions to turn them into miniature wedding cakes.
Wedding Cake Cutters
After you have rolled out the cake balls, use two different size cookie cutters to make the shapes. You can use small cutters like these to shape the cake and frosting mixture.

They’re not too big … the round cutter is about 1 1/2 inches wide and the crinkle cutter is about 1 1/4 inches wide.

Press one cake ball into each mold until the mixture fills up the cookie cutter shape. Remove any excess and you can reuse.

Wedding Cakes

Remove mixture from the cookie cutters carefully so the shape stays intact and place on a wax paper-covered baking sheet.

When you have your shapes made, melt white candy coating per the directions on the package. Apply a thin layer of coating to the bottom of the smaller shaped cake, leaving the center uncoated. (This will make it easier for the lollipop stick to be inserted.)

Then place the small layer on top of the larger layer, coating side down. Press gently and let the candy coating set like glue. Place cakes in the refrigerator to keep chilled before dipping.

When you are ready, dip the tip of each lollipop stick in coating and then insert into the bottom of the cake about halfway. Then dip the wedding cake pop in a small narrow bowl of melted candy coating so that you can dip and remove the entire cake in one motion.

To make sure the coating is fluid enough, you can add some shortening or paramount crystals to help thin it out.

Remove from the candy coating, tap off any excess gently and place a jumbo heart sprinkle on top before the coating sets.

Let dry in a styrofoam block and then attach decorations using more melted candy coating like as glue. You can use sugar crystals, confetti sprinkles or even pipe on details like dots or swirls with more candy coating. You could really go all out with different decorations and colors.

Jumbo heart sprinkles

These jumbo heart sprinkles work out great for the top of the cakes.

Just look how simple and sweet these are.

Wedding Cake Pops

You could give these cake pops for:

  • An engagement party
  • A wedding shower
  • Wedding favors
  • You could even propose with them

Imagine how cute they would be with some sweet little tags.

Okay, forget imagining… let me just show you.

Will You
Will  You Marry
Will You Marry Me

Wow!!! Too cool!!! Of course, she said YES!!! If she hadn’t I’ll bet I know plenty of ladies that would! Rich, you (and Bakerella!) ROCK!!!!

I love baseball – but I always say that my (hopefully) future fiance needs to understand I don’t want to be proposed to via Jumbotron in center field. Just something about it being so public is just not me.

This? Would definitely work though. :) So adorable.

PS – Congrats to Mel and Rich!! (and to bakerella for being sweet enough to help him out!)

Poor Melissa (comment #191) my heart would have stopped, too. And Joyous Times to Mel and Rich who are tying the knot. I totally teared up — and had to read all the comments. How cool? And sweet, and just plain cheery! Wahoo! Don’t we all feel great after reading something like this?

Catherine said...

Wonderful proposal!

I’m completely in love with these pops, but I can’t even figure out how to make the regular ones right, much less these. Every time I make the regular ones, they seem too heavy to stay on the stick.

Did you happen to take pictures of the step by step process?

October 19, 2009 03:22 PM
Michael said...

That was awesome! Didn’t forsee the actual proposal part of the post – that was a surprise. Congrats to Melissa & Rich!

RICH said...

Hi Everyone,

This is RICH. Male lead in “The Wedding Cake Pops”…a Bakerella story :)

It’s been an absolutely AMAZING ride the last 24 hours or so. Mel and I wanted to personally thank everyone for their warm wishes and comments. Reading through some of the comments has been so emotional yet so rewarding. It’s been truly overwhelming in such a great way that it’s really enhanced this experience for us.

Tonight Mel and I had a chance to “debrief” with Bakerella so stay tuned for the details and background on how all of this transpired.

Lastly, I wanted to thank Bakerella for allowing me to use her blog as my proposal venue. She’s simply so amazing at what she does and I could not have done this without her. Words can’t express how grateful I am for making this moment so memorable.

Thanks again to everyone and stay tuned!!!

October 19, 2009 10:20 PM
