CHRISTMAS CAKE POPS! Decorate CHRISTMAS TREE Cakepops! A Cupcake Addiction How To Tutorial
English (United Kingdom) English (United Kingdom) Hello and welcome to Cupcake Addiction's ChristmasTree Cakepop Tutorial where I'll be showing you how to make this great Christmas treecakepop. I've made this demonstration one here in a white chocolate coating so it'sa white Christmas tree cakepop. The one we're making today is a green Christmastree cakepop so you can choose your design Christmas theme.Tools and equipment that I will be using today: I have just a standard pair of scissors anda snap lock bag. I'm using a paper straw instead of a lollipopstick today. I just like the colors in it but you can use a regular lollipop stick.If you're going to get a paper straw, get a nice thick heavy duty one.I've got a couple of cocktail sticks. I've got a pre-rolled cakepop ball. If youdon't have a great recipe and tutorial for your cakepops to get them to this stage readyfor decorating, make sure you head to our channel. We've got a really good recipe andtutorial. I've got some rainbow choc chips, they'recalled here. They're basically just a candy-covered chocolate chip. If you don't have this whereyou are, you can also use Nerds or any kind of sprinkle just to make our little Christmaslights. I've got a little bit of melted white chocolate.I've got some silver sanding sugar. Now I only use silver sanding sugar on the whiteChristmas version so you only need that if you're making the white Christmas. If you'redoing the green Christmas, you don't need it.I've also got a little bit of orange sanding sugar.And I've got just some Christmas stars. I couldn't find any yellow so I'm going withred and white today. I also got my green melted candy wafers andI've mixed those with a bit of Copha just to thin them out.Now firstly we're going to take the cakepop ball. And to make our cone shape, I'm justgoing to rock it back and forth in my palms and I'm just going to make it into a nicecone. Don't worry if it cracks a little bit. It's all going to be covered in chocolate.But do try and keep it together as much as you can. And I like to just give it a bitof a [heat] on the table, I guess, just to give it a nice flat bottom. So that one'sgoing to go to the fridge for about
minutes. You don't want it to be completelyfirm. You just want it to be firm enough that it's not going to fall off your lollipop stick,so just minutes in the fridge. I've got one here that's already been refrigeratedso we don't have to wait for this one to fridge. So I'm going to take my paper straw or yourlollipop stick. Dip it about a centimeter into those candy melts and pop it in abouta centimeter into the way of the bottom of that cakepop cone. I'm going to let that sealset just a little bit. Now as I mentioned if you are doing the whitechocolate version of this, obviously you will replace the green candy melts with just plainwhite chocolate. Now do wait for that seal to be completelyset. I'm going to be a little bit naughty and I think I'm going to cheat and just riskdipping it anyway. But if you don't wait for the seal to set completely, you do run therisk of your cakepop falling off into your candy melts. So let's see how I go.To dip your cakepop, a bit straight in, tilt it from side to side until those candy meltscover up that seal and lift it off. You'll notice the candy melts are quite thick. Nowhere you want to work quite quickly so I'm going to take the cocktail stick or the toothpick,and I'm just going to just dab it into the chocolate all the way around. This is goingto make the, I guess, the bristle effect or the tree branch tree leaf effect of our Christmastree. You don't have to be too neat about it. [It's] going to have some sprinkles andother bits and pieces going on there. Alright, now once you're happy with that.Like I said, just a bit of texture in there is really all you want. Take some of yourlovely Christmas lights and just sprinkle them on. Now I've done a bit of a tinsel effect,I suppose you call it. So I want to make sure that I'm leaving a bit of path for my tinselto wrap through. So I'm going to take it (Inaudible 04:04) this section. Just move your lightsaround so that you can kind of visualize where you're going to pop your tinsel on the wayon its way down the tree. You can just throw these little chocolatechips on there but I kind of like to position them a little bit better. I like to pick mycolors so I don't end up with too much of the same color in one location.If you love our tutorials, make sure that you subscribe to our channel. We've got lotsof Christmas stuff coming up at the moment and we do upload times a week all yearround so you'll get lots and lots of great cakepop, cupcake and cake decorating tipsand ideas. Now you should have something that looks like this.Now is about the time to pop the star on top. So just take your star and just sit it ontop. If in any stage that candy melt does completely dry and you can't, I suppose, juststick your lights or anything straight into it, just dab whatever it is that you're tryingto attach back into that green candy melt and just... I guess it will just act likea little bit of glue. So we're going to let that completely set and then we're going tocome back and do that final tinsel detail. Alright, so that one's pretty well set. I'mgoing to take that white chocolate. Now of course, you could leave your green Christmastree at that stage if you want to. I like to always take it just a little bit over thetop. So I'm going to just put some of that white chocolate into the zip lock bag, makingsure to close the zip lock bag. Push it all down to the corner. And I'm just going tosnip off just a little corner. No exact measurement for the corner. It is just going to be tomake our, I guess kind of, tinsel area. Now I'm going to take that cakepop and I'mjust going to run some white chocolate just along that sort of a line that I said we shouldleave to give it a just a strand of a tinsel. Pop another one just down here. Just to makeour Christmas tree look a little bit more festive.Alright, now once you've got your tinsel, just take those, that orange sanding sugar,or whatever [color] sanding sugar you like really and just sprinkle it on that whitechocolate. Because you've let that green tree completely dry, it won't be sticking to thegreen tree. It's just sitting on there and we'll just use a paintbrush or your fingeror something just to wipe it off or whisk it away. Now you should have something thatlooks like that. As I mentioned, you can just use a paintbrush.Wait 'til that white chocolate's dry if you can. I'm not going to just for time sake.But just use a little paintbrush or something along those lines, a little new makeup brushor your fingers just to push away any of that extra orange sanding sugar.And if you like it better without the tinsel, don't do the tinsel. It's just a bit of anoption extra. So here you have your completed, ready togo, green Christmas tree. You can do a white Christmas and green Christmas. You can doone or the other depending on where you leave. Either way, I think you'll agree, they'rea great little Christmas cakepop. Thanks vey much for watching.
