Modern cake pops tutorial
- Cake pop dough ready for shaping
- White candy wafers
- Black candy wafers
- Lollipop sticks
- Ziplock bag for piping
- Wax paper
- Cake pop stand or styrofoam block
Line your work surface with wax paper.Roll dough into 1¼ inch thickness by using a stack of books or magazines as a guide for your rolling pin. Make sure they’re exactly 1¼ inch high. Wrap whatever you’re using as a guide in plastic wrap so your cake pop dough is protected from any debris. Roll out small amounts of dough at a time and cut into 1¼ inch squares using a ruler and a sharp knife.
Tip: Refer to our cake pop shaping tutorialto learn how to make perfect pliable dough.
Gently tap each side onto your flat work surface to rid the cubes of ridges.
Press the cube corners evenly onto your flat work surface to make flat surfaces. Place on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet and refrigerate.
Melt the white candy wafers in a small microwave-safe plastic bowl or cup. Stir and let rest for a couple of minutes.
Tip: Refer to our dipping cake pops tutorial for help with this process.
Remove cake pop pieces from the fridge and also let rest at room temp for a couple of minutes
Dip ⅓ inch of a cake pop stick into the candy coating and push in through a flat side until it’s about halfway through. Do this for the remaining pieces.
Push into a triangular side (which was once a cube corner).
Or push into a square side.
Dip each cake pop into the white coating. While still upside down, gently shake the cake pop side to side to allow the excess to drip off. If you notice any air bubbles, pierce them using a toothpick.
Place on a cake pop stand or styrofoam block and let dry completely.
Heat black coating and thin to a fluid consistency. Pour into a ziplock bag and snip the corner with scissors to create a piping bag. Define the edges by piping lines along them.
If desired, pipe lines on each panel to create triangular shapes of different sizes to further enhance the cake pops and give a more modern aesthetic.
