For my husband’s birthday I decided to make him some cake pops with the theme of a game he was playing a lot at the time. Binding of Isaac!
For this I used the following supplies:
- Cake pop maker
- Candy Wafers
- Gel Icing (white, black and red for details) – I have had zero luck with markers so don’t waste your money!
- Floral Foam (to seat the pops in after, a box with holes punched in it will also work)
- Disposable trays to melt the candy in and dip the cake pops
You don’t NEED a cake pop maker, but I found one cheap on clearance and it was really easy to just bake them off instead of shaping them by hand! The sizes were a big irregular, but I wasn’t trying to be a perfectionist. 🙂
First, I baked off a bunch of cake pops – originally I was going to use red velvet, but vanilla won out. Then I started melting the candy. I used peanut butter for the “skin” and melted chocolate for the flies.
The flies were the easiest, I snipped off the corners of the vanilla wafers, melted them a bit and stuck them on the chocolate cake pops.
The rest of the details I did in gel icing by hand – had so much fun doing all of the morphs!
