Share a little about the ingredients and techniques used to create this dish/item. I wanted to try this Craftsy course in making cake pops so I decided I'd try making small birds, like song birds. I baked the decadent chocolate cake then mixed in chocolate ganache when I crumbled it. Rolling out the bird shapes I then coated the bird bodies with a peppermint crumb then stuck them all in the freezer for about 20 minutes. After coating the end of the pop-cycle stick with white chocolate I anchored the birds onto the sticks. Then I dipped the whole bird into white chocolate to seal everything. Rinsing and drying pitted cherries I used these as the heads of each bird then coated the head too with white chocolate. I have now 'blank' bird cake pops. I can now decorate them to most any species I want.
