At last week's party, I served some golden snitch red velvet cake pops in the tiny "sweets" area of my dinner table, along with the candies I mentioned in my previous post. I couldn't figure out how to display the pops. I worried that their wings would chip off if they touched, so I left them stuck in the piece of styrofoam that I used for drying. It turned out that they looked okay like that, almost as if they were buzzing around above the table. It was an eye-catching display to look at while dining :).
Golden Snitch Cake Popsred velvet cake
cream cheese frosting
yellow candy melts
white candy melts
Melt your white candy melts. On a sheet of parchment or wax paper, trace out little pairs of wings with the white candy melts. This can be done by using a piping bag with a plain tip, or just done freehand with a spoon.
Crumble the red velvet cake in a bowl and combine with the cream cheese frosting till no more streaks remain. Pinch off portions of the red velvet "dough" and roll them into ping pong ball sized balls. Place them in the freezer or refrigerator to firm up so they don't fall apart when dipped into the candy melts.
By now, the white candy melt wings should be dry. Carefully peel them off the wax paper, keeping them paired up. Remove the red velvet cake balls from the fridge and stick a lollipop stick in each one. Melt the yellow candy melts. Dip a cake ball into the yellow coating and while it's still wet, stick a wing in the side of the ball and stick the matching wing into the opposite side. Repeat with the rest and enjoy when your pops are dry.
