Weddings are just so wonderful, aren’t they?
I cannot speak for myself though because I am not married yet. But everything about weddings is just absolutely exciting!
I definitely get carried away by romantic proposals on the internet or cute dresses in a wedding magazine, that gorgeous sweet table on a blog which lets me say: Getting married must be breathtaking.
Breathtaking in two ways…wonderful, yet stressful for the bride! Especially when she wants to organize so much by herself. As the to-do list grows, it is hard for her to enjoy the time before the wedding beause there is so much to do.
This is why I am addressing all friends and family of future wedding couples:
Be helpful! Even the smallest things make a difference. At the end of the day the bride will be greatful for all your help thoughout the wedding planning period.
A little surprise on the wedding day would not hurt either:
Cute Wedding Cake – Cake Pops!
It is trendy nowadays to give something unique and original as a wedding gift, something that will catch everyone’s eye. Besides rather “expensive” gifts, it’s the homemade, little things that truly make people happy.
If you follow my blog regularly, you probably have seen my my bride & groom wedding cake pops (tutorial) or my previously posted mini three tiered wedding cake – cake pops.
They are a little more complicated to make so I am sure not everyone dares to make them:
Today’s wedding cake pops are definitely easier to make but still; look so romantic!
- Prep Time 30 mins
- Baking Time cool for 30 mins in refrigerator
- Difficulty Medium
What you need in order to make the wedding-cake cake pops (not everything is MUST!):
- baked & cooled cake, in 3 different colors if you wish (tinted with food coloring), click here for the tutorial.
If you do not care about the inside of the cake and different color shades, you can try out my no-bake Oreo Cake Pops recipe, which is less work than the cake version (good for beginners!).
Click here for the recipe.
- microwave-safe plastic bowl to melt candy coating
- white candy coating and/or other colors as you wish
- round cookie cutters in 2 different sizes
- premade fondant or gumpaste flowers or store bought sugar flowers
- fondant or gumpaste
- Fondant Cutters: Flowers, Leaves etc.
- Fondant Tools to work with: Rolling Pin, Foam Pads, Ball Tool & other modeling tools
- Lollipop Sticks
- white round sprinkles for decorating
Note: Take out everything on the counter you need before you actually start. It can be very stressful otherwise.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. (Benjamin Franklin)
- 1. Sugar flowers made out of fondant: I recommend to make these ahead of time, even days ahead. To roll out the fondant or gumpaste, use a rolling pin. To help shape the gumpaste or fondant flowers, use tools such as the ball tool. The foam pad helps to make and shape sugar flowers.
- 2. Prepare your cake pop mix and cut out round shapes or mold shapes with your hands.
Note: Please do not cut out really big shapes of cake, because they might be too big and heavy for the lollipop stick and might fall off. Try to make them just like in my photos for example.
- 3. Melt your white candy coating in a microwave-safe plastic bowl, following the instructions on the package, I usually do that in 30 seconds intervals in the microwave.
Note: I am in love with the Brite White Candy Melts by CK Products.
Your cake pops will be really white and it does make a difference. If you can get those, I really recommend to buy them.
- 4. Place a small amount of candy coating on the bottom layer and place the smaller cake layer on top of it.
Take a lollipop stick, dip a little bit of the lollipop stick into the white melted candy, then stick the lollipop stick into the bottom layer of the wedding cake pop all the way up to the top layer (up to the middle of the top cake layer), very careful and not too fast.
Repeat this step with all of your little wedding cakes and stick them all in a styrofoam block so the chocolate can set inside the cake pops.
Put all of them in your fridge for about 20 minutes to firm up.
- 5. Now dip the cake pop into the white candy melts, let the excess chocolate come off. Place the coated Cake Pop in a styrofoam block to dry.
Follow these steps with all little wedding cake – cake pops.
- 6. Now it’s time to decorate!
I piped a dotted border around the cakes (filled candy melts in an icing bag and used a small round tip to pipe) but you can also attach sixlets or other candy pearls. Add tiny flowers or other candy. I put a small amound of candy melts on top of the cake and let it drip down a little..to get the ganache sort of look, plus I love drips so, it was only right.
(Photo: Foam pad, cut out fondant flowers + ball tool to shape the flowers.)

Mhmmm yummy ganache anyone?

I’m not married yet either but I love weddings and have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to all things wedding (just in case)! Haha! I hope to muster up the courage to attempt cake pops one day! Your cake pops look amazing and I love all the fine details that go into them! Perfection!
YitLing, thanks so much for your lovely comment, I really appreciate it. I have a wedding board as well ;) It is just so romantic, isn’t it..

Wie hast du denn die wundervolle Marry me Girlande im Hintergrund gemacht?
Liebe Grüße von Mareike
ich danke dir für die lieben Worte!

I absolutely adore your cake pops and me and my daughter are definitely going to give them a try. Get into practice before she decides to get married ;) …… thought we would adapt it with a Xmas theme though as no weddings in the pipeline. Perhaps you could do something like that and post it for us. Or maybe you already have. Not done anything like this before but will do our best :)
Great tutorial, thank you.

I put a small amound of candy melts on top of the cake and let it drip down a little..to get the ganache sort of look.
