I've never claimed to be a great baker/cake decorator and the IS a reason I haven't. This is it. I will share with you anyways though.
After making Tibby's birthday race car cake, I was SURE this would be ten times easier for me, but not true. I'm not saying this is a hard recipe, but it's just not my sort of thing...I really don't care for my hands to get messy, and I'm not good at dipping items in melted candy melts and have them turn out pretty. BUT, they are very tasty, and kids don't mind how pretty they are, so give it a try anyways. Who knows, you may not have any of the issues I do, so this may be a walk in the park for most.
1.First, you want to make a cake. Any cake, any pan will do. I made two of these.
2.Use whatever icing you want. Start with a tablespoon or two and mix it around. (Do this when the cake is still warm) You want it to be moist, but not too moist. If you us a 9x13 pan, you may use up to 1/4-1/2 cup.
3.Roll into 1 inch balls and place on wax paper. Put them in the freezer for 5 min.
4. Melt the candy melts according to instructions on pkg. (Usually using an double broiler or microwave 30 seconds at a time and stirring)
5. Dip, pour, whatever you think is best...(because I don't know) the balls in the candy melts and add a green tick tack for the stem.
AND, you can put them on a lollipop stick to make them pops, if you want.
Put in fridge, then eat them...and you'll probably want another, so then if you're like me you might need to head to the gym.
