CAKEPOPS! Decorate a Marshmallow Cloud Cake Pop - A Cupcake Addiction How To Tutorial
English (United Kingdom) English (United Kingdom) Hello and welcome to Cupcake Addiction's latestcakepop tutorial where I'll be showing you how to make this very cool cakepops.Now I came across these cakepops when I was attempting to make a sheep cakepop for a farmparty. My sheep didn't turn out but what I did end with was this very cool marshmallowpuff cakepop. I think they're so effective and I can see so many parties already thatthat will look fantastic in. Tools and equipment that I do have today:I've got a couple of lollipop sticks. I've got my polystyrene block which I useto rest all of my cakepops in when they're finished and while I'm working on them.I've got a pre-rolled cakepop ball. If you haven't got a good cakepop recipe or you haven'trolled a cakepop ball before, please feel free to check out our Cakepop Basics Tutorialwhich will give you the recipe and show you how to roll a great cakepop ball.I have some mini-baking marshmallows. Now I've used the mini-baking ones just becausethey gave me a great shape. They're about this size. They come generally in packetsof pink and white. But I think you can also get them in a few assorted pastel colors insome retailers. So if you do want to make this in a different color, there's alwaysthat option. I'm only going to use the white ones today. You can see here I've got a littlecontainer of them here pre-prepared. Now what I've done is I've just taken allmy little white ones, about per cakepop and I've just torn them in half. You can cutthem but I love the way they look torn. I think they're a little bit haphazard but they'vegot some sort of rough edges, along with the smooth edges. They just give that really nicefinish. I've also got some melted white chocolate.Now I've got grams of melted white chocolate with grams of Copha, otherwise known asCrisco or shortening melted into it. This is just going to make our white chocolatestretch a little bit further and it's also going to make it a little more pleasant foryour guests to bite into. When it has such a crack, it will have more of a soft crunchI suppose you could say. So let's get started.Firstly, I'm going to insert my lollipop stick into the bottom. Generally, there's a slightlyflat part of your cakepop where it has been resting. I will mention this ball has beenrefrigerated for about nice solid consistency or texture for us towork with. So I'm going to take my lollipop stick, I'm just dipping into that white chocolate.This is going to act as a bit of a glue. And I'm just going to pop that into the middleof the cakepop ball, about Now I'm going to pop that into the refrigeratorfor a couple of minutes just to let that white chocolate harden nicely, and that will giveus a great seal so we can dip our cakepop ball and not risk having it fall off our lollipopstick. Okay, so that one's been in the refrigeratorfor a couple of minutes and I'm confident that our seal is nicely hard and nicely set.So I'm going to dip my cakepop ball now. I've got quite a deep container that I'm using.I don't want to tilt it too much but you can see there it's quite deep which allows meto get my cakepop ball right to the bottom of it to get a nice even dip.So I'm going to pop the cakepop ball in. And I'm just going to tilt it side to side sothat fresh melted white chocolate just covers that nice cold seal. Now you really want todo try and get a little bit of the excess off because once we start adding those marshmallows,we don't them sliding around too much. So you'll see that I'm just turning the cakepopas I'm giving it a little shake. Don't shake it too vigorously. We don't want it to knockit off the lollipop stick but we do just want to make sure that we're evenly disposing anyexcess. Beautiful. This is what you should have at this point.Now, we're going to pop our marshmallows on. As mentioned you can do pink or you can dowhite or you can do a mixture of the two or you can do any other colored marshmallow youcan find. So basically, I'm just going to pop them on. I wouldn't dip the cakepop ballinto it. I would...just position them with your fingers. As I mentioned, you can slidethem around a little bit. It's a bit haphazard but it's also a bit of method to our madnessso to speak. Now I've used a 100-gram bag which was whatI bought in the shops here in Australia. And this is going to do me roughly cakepopsso they do use quite a few of the little baking marshmallows. Just keep that in mind if youwant to do a dozen or so, I'll definitely get bags of the mini-marshmallows.What you've got is, I suppose, a marshmallow puff explosion of a cakepop. When people biteinto that, they're going to take all the sensations of the sticky, soft, sweet marshmallow, thatnice soft crunch of the chocolate and then beautiful chocolate cakepop inside.Enjoy that one. We'd love to hear your feedback. Thanks very much for watching!
