Wedding Favors: Bride & Groom Pops

On June 24, 2011 my cousin Ashley’s childhood friend Priscilla got married right down the street from my house in Huntington Beach!

And for 3 days before then, Ashley and I worked on these! Oreo and Vanilla cake pops!

Yumm these were my favorite. I’m def an oreo type of girl!

Edward may or maynot be trying to convince us to go to the beach. hahaha.

Oreo Cake Pops
-makes about 40-50 pops
- 1 pack of Oreos
- 8oz package of cream cheese
- 1 bag white melting chocolate ( Do not use Nestle white chocolate chips, they won’t melt thin enough to dip your pops cleanly. And you’ll run into a mess of problems. Use Wilton or preferably Mercken’s Candy Melts, or any other chocolate meant for melting/coating.)
- 1 bag dark chocolate
- 1 bag light blue chocolate ( or whatever color you want)
- lollipop sticks, about 100

1. Finely crush oreos in a food processor, add the softened cream cheese and mix. (I like to mix these with my hands!)
2. Form balls about 1 inch wide, chill in refrigerator.

Vanilla Cake Pops
-makes about 40-50 pops
- 1 box white cake mix, baked
- 2/3 can of white frosting

1. Bake cake as directed on box, cool, then crumble into a bowl.
2. Add frosting a little at a time, mixing in between. It quickly goes from being too dry...too sticky. And you don’t want them too sticky.
3. Form balls and chill in refrigerator.

The steps are pretty much the same from here, so I’m going to combine the two!

4. Melt your white chocolate, we used Mercken’s Candy Melts in Super White and Dark Cocoa, as well as Light Blue for the decorations.
5. Remove pops from fridge, dip end of a lollipop stick in melted white chocolate, and insert into cake ball. Allow chocolate to harden, then completely dip balls into white chocolate. Be careful they aren’t too cold or else the chocolate will start to crack.
6. For the grooms: Melt dark chocolate and dip pops, leaving V of white in the front for the bow-tie and buttons. Then melt blue chocolate, using a piping bag, pipe bow-tie and buttons.
7. For the brides: Use white chocolate in a piping bag, drizzle chocolate onto the pops to make the dress “ruffles”. Repeat with blue chocolate leftover in the piping bag from the grooms! Pipe dots around the top for the matching necklace.

Cake pops are a challenge at first, but once you do the motions over and over it starts to get much easier. I suggest being very patient, its hard for me sometimes, haha. Or get yourself some assistants to help ya out =]

I really enjoy making wedding cake pops, so if you or anyone you know is getting married anytime soon, let them know about Hollicakes Wedding Cake Pop Favors!
