Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Cake Pop! Christmas Cake Pops at Le Dolci, Part I

4 Comments

December is just a few days away and we’re getting our holiday baking and sweets decorating on here at the studio!  Every week Le Dolci hosts and teaches several classes (in addition to private parties and events), and these classes include themed cupcake decorating, macarons, cake pops, truffles, and more!  November has already been full of Christmas themed cupcake classes so far and December is full to bursting with more.  I jumped at the chance to take part in our Christmas Cake Pops class today and I had SO MUCH FUN it was unbelievable!  I’ve baked cake for cake pops in the studio and I’ve crumbled it and rolled the cake into balls with frosting , but I’ve never actually worked with the melted chocolate candy melts and wafers and I’ve never decorated or dunked the cake balls into the melted melts with the lollipop sticks in them before, so this was such a fantastic learning experience.

Alongside a wonderful group of ladies, I spent the afternoon stirring melted chocolate, scurrying back and forth between the mini broilers and our studio table (also known as the Elves Cake Pop Decorating Station, just for today!), drizzling chocolate and sprinkling crystal sugar and sprinkles over my cake pops, laughing over demented looking cake balls that didn’t turn out quite right, and enjoying a true hands-on experience from start to finish.  It was such a fun way to unleash some creative energy and it was the best type of environment to experiment and learn in because we all helped each other out and took inspiration from one another’s bite-sized masterpieces.  In the end we all got to indulge in our sweet and delicious creations, which tasted absolutely phenomenal!  I took plenty of photos during today’s class and I’ll be sharing them with you all today and tomorrow, so stay tuned for tomorrow’s step-by-step lowdown of Le Dolci’s Christmas Cake Pops!

    • You’re very welcome! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, Vicki! I checked out your FB page, it’s incredible! So many beautiful (and most likely decadent and delicious!) Christmas inspired cake pops, it’s awesome!

  1. The cake pops look awesome! I got a gift certificate to Le Dolci’s baking classes recently – I’m having trouble deciding between their cupcake decorating class and their cake pop class because they both look like so much fun! How many cake pops did you make and did you take them home afterwards? 🙂

    • Hi Michelle, thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a message! 😀 You are a lucky gal for getting a gift certificate, yay! Even though I loved doing the cake pops classes, you should definitely give the cupcake decorating classes a go because you get to be so creative with your fondant toppers and decorations and seriously, piping frosting is one of the funnest things ever.

      For cake pops classes, you take home about 10-12 depending on how many casualities you have, ha! Definitely around a dozen though. You’ll have so much fun no matter which option which you choose, but…go for the cupcakes! 😀
