When it comes to holiday decorating in our home, the Christmas wreath is the first decoration to go up and the last one to come down. It’s that special little symbol that gives the warm fuzzy feeling to everyone that approaches our front door. And now I’ve found a way to bottle up that comforting symbol into the sweetness of a cake pop. The Christmas Wreath Cake Pop has been by far the most difficult one I’ve taken on.
Using round nested cookie cutters, you start by filling a large cutter with cake pop batter and use a smaller round cutter to cut out the center, creating a simple wreath ring.
Once chilled and secured to a lollipop stick, it gets a bit tricky dipping this one in the green candy melt. The wreath is a bit top heavy and needs to be dipped vertically to prevent it from breaking off the stick.
With a nice thick coating of candy melts, the pop becomes more stable for decorating, displaying and sharing with friends and family.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year friends!
