In my second shipment of products I received from Wilton, I was excited to find a huge variety of Wilton PEEPS products that came out this spring!
I decided to try my hand a cake pops. I have never done them, can you believe it? I turned to the Wilton Pops section online. I learned everything from how to construct them to what recipe adjustments to make! After baking a 9 x 13 cake and then crumbled half, adding ready made frosting to the mix.
The standard cake pop recipe from the Wilton site made eleven of the PEEPS cake pops.Again, following the Wilton Pops instructions, I let the mold chill for two hours. Then I took them out of the mold. They hold their shape pretty well, but the beaks of the chicks were a little difficult.
I was excited to try the new Limited Edition Marshmallow Candy Melts® Candy. Using a double boiler I melted the candy and dipped/spooned it over the cake pops.
Here is the coated pop ready for embellishment!
I used the Wilton sprinkles in the Sparkling Sugars line, sticking to some of the traditional PEEPS colors.
Using a bit of chocolate ready made frosting, I added the simple PEEPS features.
Here they are! My Wilton PEEPS Cake Pops!
They were a big hit with my boyz, especially because of the jumbo size!
