Hey ladies! Is it just me, or does it seem like baby season this time of year?! One of the mom’s I nanny for just had the sweetest baby girl, so I wanted to make her a sweet gift (it seemed fitting 😉 ). My first thought was to use the meltable pink chocolate to make cookies, but when I got to Michael’s and was surrounded by so many baking tools/ingredients I was suddenly inspired haha. I literally stood in the aisle for 30 min, trying to find something that would spark an idea. That’s when I saw the rock candy sticks, and it hit me! Baby rattle cake pops!! I definitely thought this idea was unique, but when I got home from Michael’s and searched the idea on Pinterest, of course it came up! There are definitely some really cute ones on Pinterest, so go do a search of your own for extra inspo. I thought these would be so cute for a baby shower to reveal the gender. If your baby’s gender is already revealed, they look cute as pink or blue, too! And of course, they make a fun treat for a new mommy. I love cake pops almost as much as I love babies lol!
- A cake (unfrosted and cooled)
- Pink or blue food color
- Meltable chocolate
- Rock candy sticks
- Make a cake (either a boxed cake or homemade), let it cool.
- Put the cake in a large bowl, and add frosting. Mixing the two together until it forms a play-dough like consistency.
- Add either pink or blue food color and mix well.
- Form the cake pop mix into balls (about the size of a golf ball) and place them on a cookie sheet.
- Melt a small amount of chocolate and dip each stick into the chocolate before pushing them into each cake pop ball.
- Let your cake pops sit in the freezer over night.
- Melt the rest of your chocolate in a medium size bowl (big enough to dip and swirl your cake pop in).
- Dip each cake pop into your melted chocolate until it is completely covered.
- Decorate (this part is up to you!)
- Tie a small bow on your cake pop stick and you're finished!
P.S. I think painting the little wooden balls at the end of each stick, would be a nice touch too!
