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.
These are a few of the shapes I used. Candy canes, gingerbread men, candy snaps … plus, my can’t live without sprinkle – white sugar crystals.
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.
