Cake pops are a hot trend right now. They started as a blogging trend and are now being featured in exclusive bakeries and cake shops all over.
The basic idea is to mix cake crumbs with icing and then form it into whichever shapes you want. Impress people this Halloween by creating cake pops of your own!
1 prepared white cake
1 1/2 cups white frosting
White chocolate chips or white candy melt
Dark chocolate, melted
Bake the cake and let it cool completely on a cooling rack. Use a fork or a food processor to turn the cake into crumbs. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake and frosting with a spoon until well combined. It needs to have a uniform texture. Form the cake-pop mixture into ghost shapes. Insert the lollipop sticks underneath the ghost. Melt the white chocolate chips or white candy melt over a double burner. Dip ghosts into the white chocolate. Let cool standing up. You can do this by poking the sticks into a cardboard box or into a thick piece of Styrofoam. When cool, dip a small brush into the melted dark chocolate and paint on a face.
Another way to make ghost cake pops is to cut white fondant into a circle that will drape over the cake pop as seen in the photo above.
