It's totally OK to mention the C word now isn't it ? I for one am SOOO excited already !!
Something I have done the past couple of years is make Cake Pops for the Christmas table, so I am already thinking of new designs I can do, so I thought I'd share the ones I've made.
These ones are cute little Christmas trees ! They were a little fiddly but I think they worked great in the end ! I had to shape the cake balls in to little cone shapes (quite time consuming) and them dip them in the green candy melts. Straight after dipping I held them for a few seconds, then using a toothpick and starting near the top, I turned the cake pop around whilst dragging the cocktail stick through the candy melt to make the 'tree' like look below. I hope that makes sense.
I then added the sprinkles for the lights, some green glitter for a bit of sparkle - every tree needs a bit of sparkle and topped them off with a yellow sugar star for the top ! This is always my favourite part of decorating the Christmas tree and I got to do it loads of times !
I then packed them up and tied them up with candy cane coloured bakers twine !!
