Make Easter Bunny Push Pops! (Cake Shooters) A Cupcake Addiction How To Push Pop Tutorial
English (United Kingdom) English (United Kingdom) Hello and welcome to Cupcake Addiction's Downthe Bunny Hole Push Pop Tutorial where I'll be showing you how to make these just gorgeousEaster bunny, down the bunny hole push pops. I saw this idea initially on a site calledHungry Happenings. You can visit them at www.hungryhappenings.com and I will leave a link to them in the descriptionbox below. They've got some really great push pop ideas. But I saw these ones and I justhave to share them with you all. For those of you that don't know, a push popis a clear container. You basically fill it, full of cake. And once the lid's popped off,push it up, the cake pops out and you can eat it as you go. I bought mine on eBay. Theywere actually sent to Australia from the US and I've paid about cents a pop for them.I got them in a lot of search online on eBay and also at all goodcake decorating retailers for this. Tools and equipment that we will be usingtoday, aside from our push pop containers: I've got a pair of scissors.I've got is a ½ cm. and I've chosenit because it exactly fits inside my push pop containers.I've also got here a ¾ of an inch or just a small circle cutter. If you don't haveone of those, it's about the same size as your Loyal number piping tip. Otherwise,you can have a look around your kitchen for something a similar size.I've got a zip lock bag. I've got another zip lock bag which has gotsome coconut in it. Now, this is not desiccated coconut. This is shredded coconut so it'squite a bit thicker and chunkier than desiccated coconut. And they'll be called different thingsin different countries. But you can see there the type of coconut it is. And I've just thrownabout handful of that into a zip lock bag with a couple of drops of either liquid orpaste. But I do prefer liquid food coloring for this particular task and shaken it around.It's given me that lovely green coconut grass effect.I've got a little bit of our perfectly pipeable buttercream frosting which I've tinted green-- great recipe and tutorial for that on our channel so I would leave a link to that inthe description box below. I've got a little bit of melted pink chocolate.So I've just colored some white chocolate with a tiny tiny bit of pink color paste.But you can also use pink candy melts and that's just the littlest bit just to do somedetailing on the feet. I've got a couple of orange chews. Now theseare an optional extra if you do want to do the carrots but you do not have to. You canalso use orange fondant for those or orange toffee.I've got just some regular white marshmallows. A cupcake.And I've got a skewer, a little bit bigger and thicker than a cocktail stick. We're actuallygoing to be using this end to do just some dabbing and [dotting]. So something a littlethicker than a cocktail stick or a toothpick if you've got it.Let's get started. Now, you can use full cakes for this. Butbeing that we do cupcakes here at Cupcake Addiction, it's fitting that we use a cupcake.Also, for those of you wondering, my nails today are gorgeous little cupcakes and theywere done specifically for me by Meliney Nail Art. She's a good friend of mine and she designedthese cupcakes and a great tutorial on her channel, Meliney Nail Art. So I'll leave alink to her in the description box below. Head on over if you want to learn how to dothis gorgeous nails and don't forget to subscribe to her while you're there.The first thing that we want to do, while that cupcake's still in its cupcake liner,is we're going to core the inside of the cupcake. So just push down that first smaller pipingtip or smaller circle cutter. And while that's still in there, take your larger circle cutterand around the outside, push it down. You can then take your patty pan or your cupcakeliner depending on where you're from. And you can use the rest of that to either eator pop into cakepops. Now very very carefully push out that cake. So you've got a bit ofa core of cake there. And then very carefully so as not to split the outsides, push outthat inner core. So what you should have here is another lovely little junk of cake to eat.But you've got a nice little hole it out core of cake.Alright, we're going to take the push pop container. Now if you like, you can pop alittle bit of the extra cake, just some of our extra cake that we have sitting aroundin the very very bottom of your push pop container. And I'm going to do that just for height andjust crumble it down a little bit. Don't worry that it's a bit crumbled, give it a push down,because we're going to put some frosting in the middle of that [cord] stick it all together.Take your lovely cupcake core and slide it down into the push pop.We're going to take that zip lock bag and scoop in some frosting. Make sure that youlet all of the air out of it before you close it up so you don't end up with air bubbles.And just cut off... You want quite a decent little corner cut off because we're not doingany fine work with this. It's just a makeshift piping bag for us. So I'm going to take thatand I'm just going to squeeze it into that center core. This is purely so that you don'tend up with dry cake. This is the frosting for your cake. It's all going to sit in themiddle so what you see there in the outside is that lovely dirt effect. Now I want thatto come just a little bit out and around on top of the cake because it's going to helpstick our coconut down. Take some of that lovely green grass coconut.And I know that there'll be people that don't like coconut. If you don't like coconut, youcan have a look at a few other options. You can use something like sprinkles. But coconutsare really good option and it kind of hold together a little bit better. So push it downso that it's actually sticking into that frosting. It will make it easier when it actually comesto eating. And then pop it off to the side. For our bunny's bottom, we're going to takeone of those marshmallows. Pick a nice sort of a shaped one. And I'm just going to trimoff the edges and that's just going to give it the rounded bunny bottom kind of a shape.If you love our tutorials, make sure that you head on over to our channel, My CupcakeAddiction. Hit the Subscribe button. We've got tons of great tutorials over there andlots of great stuff for Easter. Now I'm going to take a little bit of thispink chocolate. And this is purely just to sort of stick it in a little bit. So I'm justgoing to put a little tiny dab of the pink chocolate. And you can use green chocolateor white chocolate or whatever you like. But I've just got pink there. And I'm going touse that just to secure our bunny's bottom on a bit of an angle and just inside the rimof our push pop. Now we're going to use one of the other marshmallows.I want to cut one side. And you'll notice with marshmallows, on the outside, they'renot sticky, on the inside they are. So you want to get 2 non-sticky sides. So I liketo cut the top and then the bottom off. And there be a little bit of the sticky middlesection. With those ones, just cut them off into a bit of a teardrop shape. They're justgoing to make our bunny rabbit feet. Alright, and we want to take a little bitmore of that melted pink chocolate. On this sticky side, little bit of melted pink chocolateand use that to stick it onto the bunny's bottom. I like to have the feet just stickingover the side a little bit of the push pop container because it's a bit cute.Same again with the other one. And you really don't need much, the actual stick from themarshmallow I found was enough to really almost stick it on by itself. But this is reallyjust to secure it if you're going to be transporting them.Then with this other inner little section, rip of some of that extra outer non-stickystuff, non-sticky siding. Now this is where it gets a little bit messy. You're going towash up afterwards. Just roll it into a ball. It's going to be really sticky. It's goingto stick to your hands but this is what gives you it the lovely texture of the bunny tail.So you can see there. Pull off a little bit so you get the right size bunny tail. Youcan see there, it really does stick quite a bit. But it gives you that nice little kindof fluffy tail effect. So take a little bit more of this melted chocolate.It really is our glue for this exercise. Pop a little dollop of it just where you thinkhis tail should go. And stick it on. There's our little bunny's tail.From here, were' going to just use the pink chocolate and the fat end of that skewer.We're just going to make a little big pad for the bottom of his foot and then 3 littlesmall ones. We're going to repeat that with both feet.Don't go too thick with these little blobs because you don't want them to dribble downand go from being nice little pads to being kind of big long drips of pink.Alright, so at this point, you should have your lovely push pop. You can see there, itstill looks a little bit like he's bottom's not quite nestled in that grass. So to getthat nice and firmly in there, we're just going to take a little bit more of that greenfrosting. Pipe in right and nice close around the bunny's bottom. And then we're going totake a little bit more of that desiccated coconut, sorry the shredded coconut, not desiccated.And use that frosting to stick it on. It gets a bit messy. There's going to be coconut grasseverywhere. Now you can definitely stop here but if youwant to make a few little bit different or go a little bit over the top, this is whereyour little orange chews come in. I pop those in the microwave for seconds just to softenthem up so that they're not quite as hard to work with. Obviously, if you're using fondantor modeling chocolate or something like that, you won't need to. Just pull off a littlebit. Roll it around in your hand. And then I'm just going to use my finger just to fashionit into a nice little carrot shape. Using the scissors, if I can get that marshmallowof them... Using the scissors or a knife, just make some nice little indents into yourcarrot. Nice little carrot shape. They don't have to be perfect. They're really reallyeasy. But once they're in grass with the rabbit, everybody's going to know what they are. Sosit one in the top there. We'll make a second. Before you do start doing this detailing,it is a good idea to clean up your work space because they're quite messy with all of thecoconut and the cookie crumbs or cake crumbs. So you can see here, I'm creating a bit ofa mess for myself. There's our second carrot. Pop him down next to our bunny and finishthose carrots off. Just take that piping bag and just put just a little dab of green ontop. So there you have your gorgeous bunny pushpop. Now I wouldn't recommend placing a lid on these. If you do, you want to do all ofthat a little bit lower down so that you've got room for the lid. But I think these arereally gorgeous and really effective without their lids. And I think you'll agree, they'rereally really unique. So head on over to Hungry Happenings for thatgreat website and everything else they've got to offer.
