Bride and groom cake pops
These wedding-themed cake pops are a sweet and classy way to celebrate the new bride and groom.
Cake pops are not just for kids, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. These sophisticated bride and groom cake pops will add class and charm to any bridal party, and will bring smiles all around with their looks and taste. Don’t be limited by my instructions, you can get funky with the decorations and try different fashion statements for the cake pop ‘couple on a stick’. Same with the cake – if you prefer vanilla, red velvet, cookies and cream – just go for it.
Get creative, enjoy the process, and if your edible bride and groom look a little worse for the wear, you can eat your mistakes and try again!
- 1/2 chocolate cake, pre-made
- 1 cup chocolate frosting
- 1 9-ounce bag milk chocolate chips
- 1 9-ounce bag white chocolate chips
- Pink sugar pearls
- Styrofoam block (rectangular)
- Round, white sprinkles
- Cake pop sticks
Crumble chocolate cake into a bowl. Add a spoonful of frosting and mix into the cake until a rich cake consistency is achieved.
Test for the right consistency by rolling out a cake ball – if it holds together, you’ve added enough frosting. If it’s too dry to hold its shape, add a bit more frosting. (Don’t add too much or the cake pops will taste like raw cake – been there, done that.)
Set balls onto parchment paper and put into the freezer to harden.
Meanwhile, melt milk chocolate in a double broiler or microwave until most of the chips soften and then stir to finish the melting process.
In another bowl, melt white chocolate chips.
Remove cake balls from freezer. Dip a cake pop stick into melted chocolate, and then insert most of the way into a cake ball. Allow excess chocolate to drip off, and then turn upright and stick into Styrofoam to decorate and dry.
Groom Pops: While chocolate coating is still soft, attach white confetti as tuxedo buttons.
Bride Pops: While chocolate is still warm, attach pearls in a necklace shape, and as buttons going downward. If you find heart-shaped sprinkles, use those for buttons for a cute touch.
Repeat until all pops are decorated. Once cake pops are dry and hardened, spoon excess milk chocolate into a bag and snip off a tiny corner. Microwave for a few seconds to soften slightly. Pipe a bow tie onto each of the groom pops, directly above the buttons.
To display cake pops, cover styrofoam with wedding-themed wrapping paper or fabric, and re-insert cake pops.
