I know this is after the fact, but I finally got around to editing some photos and I’m so excited to show you all my beloved group of Christmas cake pops from Le Dolci’s class! Even though I’m at the studio on a regular basis, I don’t attend all the cupcake and dessert decorating classes that take place on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays most of the time. Ideally that would be amazing, but it’s better to leave a spot vacant for an eager customer and student. Not to mention attending oodles of classes on top of being at the studio is just asking for multiple sugar comas. Like I don’t like the frosting off the spatula enough as it is!
This class was such a treat (literally!) and I came away with a fabulous batch of sweet and decadent, super moist cake pops that I surprised my family with. I was so busy snapping photos of everything that was going on during the class though that I didn’t get any good shots of my own little holiday superstars! With the exception of the 2nd photo in the giant, two-part cake pop tutorial post last week, none of my own cake pops were featured and I didn’t get a chance to show you all the batch of cake pops I ended up with. So here they are in all their glory! I’m a big fan of sprinkles and I’m also a big fan of the drizzle method.
My favourite one out of the bunch is the white chocolate one in the very middle with the red and green ball sprinkles and the dainty white snowflakes. As soon as our wonderful cake pop teacher dished out those snowflake sprinkles, I was all over them like mud on a pig. I dove for them and went snowflake sprinkling happy – kind of like real snowflakes! Getting these cake pops to stand up and stay in place was no easy task though. You are in fact looking at Christmas cake pops standing up in a mug filled with white chocolate chips on my kitchen table. Anything for a few good shots, right?
If any of you are interested in learning how to make cake balls and cake pops, just check out the tutorial post I have here and follow along with the photos and my step-by-step low-down on cake pop creation bliss. It takes practice but the process is a lot of fun and I’m itching like crazy to experiment now that I’ve been bitten by the cake ball bug. If anyone wants to take part in any of the classes (cupcake decorating, macaron making, and cake pops among others) take a look at the class schedule here and see if there’s anything that strikes your fancy. We’re doing a ton of fun holiday decorating projects in the studio and I’m so looking forward to sharing more projects with you all as Christmas gets closer! Happy baking and decorating, everyone!
