Halloween Ghost Cake Pops

Hello everyone,

It's nearly Halloween, huzzah! And to get in the spooky spirit, I made Ghost Cake Pops for Tristan & Scarlett to enjoy.


How I made them:

Here is everything I used to make the ghost cake pops 
The main elements are vanilla sponge cakes, vanilla frosting, white chocolate, 
white ready-to-roll icing and black food colouring

First stage is to break up the vanilla sponge into fine crumbs then mix with vanilla frosting 
until you get a thick dough. It's easier to start the mixing process with a spoon, then use your 
(clean) hands once the dough gets thicker

Form the dough mixture into little balls, about the size of a ping-pong ball, 
then refrigerate for approx 30 minutes 

Melt a little of the white chocolate in a small bowl. 
Dip the lolly-stick into the chocolate, then pierce it through a cake ball 

A great asset to making cake pops is to use a stand like this to keep them upright

Melt the remaining white chocolate, then gently coat each cake pop in the chocolate. 
Allow to set in a fridge for 1-2 hours

Roll out the icing to about 2mm thick, then cut out circles
Add a small blob of melted white chocolate to the top of the cake pop (to act as a glue) 
then gently drape over the circle of icing

Using a fine paintbrush, paint on black food colouring to make ghost faces 
Voila!  

Here is Tristan ready to enjoy a delicious ghost cake pop!

  4. These are too cute! I haven't mastered the whole cake pop thing but it sure is popular. I just hate the idea of destroying cupcakes or cake after I spent so much time baking on it.

  8. Those are so cute! I bet the kids love these at Halloween time! I haven't made any good candy yet my kids are all grown and we don't get trick or treaters so I save all of my candy making for Christmas but I bet there is a way to incorporate them with a Christmas theme!

  27. Those are so cute. I haven't ever made cake pops. All the recipes always seem so time consuming and I'd just rather make at cake at that point. These look doable.
