Wahooooooo!!! 1000 facebook likers. It still boggles my mind that there are 1000 people out there, and at least one pig – miss olive, that I know of, who choose to spend your precious time checking out what crazy things I have made. I am beyond words thankful for your support and encouragement. To spread the love I have created a visual tutorial of how I made these super special cake pops for Fiona.
I formed the cake pops into their owl shape, stuck them on their sticks and popped them in the freezer for approx. 10 mins just to stiffen up. Then I dipped them in a light teal chocolate hot tub and set aside to dry. Then using a piping tip, cookie cutters, I cut out all the required pieces out of coloured modelling chocolate: chest feather piece, eyes, beak, wings, eyebrows and/or bow. You could use fondant here if you preferred but since the pop is covered in chocolate I decided to stick with modelling chocolate. I also like that I can get all the pieces ready and not worry about them drying out. I used a water brush to attach the pieces to the body and modelling tools to give the pieces some texture.
Let me know what you think of the tutorial, if you have any questions please ask and let us know what you would like to see next!
The boy owl cake pops are almost the same, I just made a couple of changes, the colour of the chest feathers, the eyes and a unibrow instead of a bow.
