You’ve likely bought a cake pop — the hand-held, two-bite, eye-catching dessert — from Starbucks or the dessert counter in Vincenzo’s. The treat went viral in 2009 courtesy of blogger Angie Dudley, (who can be found at bakerella.com) and continues to be popular.
The CCE’s Veronica Naas consulted with local creative talent Linda Zavarella to learn the tips, tricks and techniques for mastering this popular dessert on a stick.
For presentation purposes, you can decorate the Styrofoam to suit the colour or theme of your event, lay the cake pops on a platter or wrap them in plastic lunch bags tied off with colourful ribbon.
Complete steps one through three two days before needed then the day prior do steps four through six. Baking should be fun —give yourself some breathing room to enjoy the process.
You’re now ready to impress guests at your next dinner party or amaze co-workers with your new cake pop making skills!
