This tutorial is not so much about how to make Halloween Cake Pops, but on how to display Halloween Cake Pops using individual cauldrons. These look great and make a great display when grouped together on a Halloween dessert table.
- Small Cauldrons
- sytrofoam balls of equal size to the cauldron (1 ball covers two cauldrons)
- Black and River pebbles
Cut the Styrofoam ball in half and place in the cauldron with the rounded side up.
Insert the already made cake Pop, I find it easier to pierce a hole in the styrofoam using a metal skewer.
Place both black rocks and river rocks over the Styrofoam, check that the Cake Pop sits without toppling over
Place a small amount of nerds among the rocks to add colour
Position in a bunch, I added mini bunting to the cake pops for added impact.
For this Party I did make three types of Cake pops. The first was an eyeball made with a blue or green candy melt, red gel for veins and black Gel for the pupil.
The Pumpkin Cake Pop was made with orange candy melts, and an orange gel pen to create lines and green icing Pen for the pumpkin leaves
My favourite Cake Pop this year has to be the cauldron, these were made my allowing the cake pop to rest upside down to form a flat top, I then used a brown gel pen and green nerds for the cauldron contents and a combination of red and orange gel pens for the flames.
