Cake Pops – Cake Balls on High Heels

Cake Pops – Cake Balls on High Heels


Welcome back to Pastry Maestra! I’m Tereza and today I’m making cake pops. Remember cake balls? Chocolate coated, ball-shaped, dense mixture
of leftover crumbed cake, chocolate, jam… …or a filling of any kind is always a
highly appreciated and popular item in any… …pastry shop, in spite of the fact that
they are made of leftovers! Go figure! I still remember my mother’s recipe –
it contained cookie crumbs, butter,
and chocolate. What a treat that was for my sister and me! All over the world there are numerous
“recipes” for these simple treats. Cake balls became so popular that bakers
began making them from the start, not just
recycling last week’s birthday cakes. This led the stroke of genius that made cake
balls into the cake pops that we know and
love; why not put a cake ball on a stick? This step was crucial because one ordinary,
plain little ball suddenly got high heels,… …the transformation from a caterpillar
to a butterfly was complete! And finally, a brilliant lady, cake pop queen
herself, Ms. Angie Dudley, also known as… …Bakerella, put the spotlight on the
artistic potential of cake pops! That happened in 2008, and today, only ten
years later, a whole branch of industry
is revolving around cake pops! Books, blogs, TV shows, all on the subject of
cake pops, not to mention countless … …bakeries and pastry shops around the world
that are making cake pops for any occasion –… …from afternoon treat, to kid’s
birthday party, or corporate event,
and even for weddings! People are making and selling rollers and
stands, sprinkles and whatnot – you can … …even buy a machine that makes cake
pops, can you believe it? Amazing! Naturally, I had to make my own, small
contribution to the movement, spread the … …word further, so to speak, so I’ll show
you how to make white chocolate cake pops –
yummy little beauties on high heels! As usual, the recipe is on my site,
the link is down below. I have melted 150g (5.3oz) of white chocolate in
the microwave, and I’ve also heated raspberry puree. I’m gonna pour raspberry puree into melted
chocolate and stir until smooth. Next thing I’m gonna do is add cake crumbs
to the mixture and mix well. You can use any crumbs you have – sponge cake,
lemon cake, fruitcake, sacher cake etc. I’m gonna chill this mixture in the fridge until
it is firm enough to form balls. My mixture is firm enough. I’ve weighed 30g (1oz) of the mixture for each ball
and now I’m gonna roll them between my palms. Then I’ll put them back in
the fridge for a while. While the pops were cooling, I’ve
tempered my white chocolate. I’m gonna dip the tip of a stick into tempered white
chocolate, and then insert it into a cake ball. I will dip the whole ball into white chocolate
to make sure it is completely coated. Then I’ll take it out and swirl
to get rid of the excess chocolate. I’m gonna top it with sprinkles
before the chocolate sets. And that’s it, my cake pops are done! I don’t know about grownups, but I’m absolutely
sure that your little ones will simply adore.. …making these funny, delicious balls, so let them
express all their artistic desires
and – don’t forget to have fun! Happy dipping!
