Can I Make Corn Cake Pops?
This cake pop that looks like corn on the cob from Hungry Panda's YouTube channel was so cute that I had to try it. :)
For some reason, I think foods shaped like other foods are funny especially desserts shaped or formed to look like savory foods. I used to think they weren't funny, but now I really like them. Haha. :)
- Cake pops (in the shape of corn on the cob)
- Yellow, orange tic tacs predominantly (you can add a few green & red if you want)
- Melted yellow candy melts or yellow frosting (white frosting with yellow food coloring)
- Green fondant (for husk of corn; I made my own.)
See my cake pop posts for more info on cake ball formation, etc.:
You use tic tacs as the corn kernels. You use green fondant for the husk of the corn. I decided to make my own marshmallow fondant. It's only 3 ingredients: marshmallows, powdered sugar and a tiny bit of water.
Check it out in my post: Can I Make "Marshmallow Fondant"?
I made cake pops in the shape of corn on the cob. First, I used yellow candy melts as in the video, but I was still having problems with dipping and candy melts. Haha! :) #candymeltstruggles
Then I switched to frosting. First, I did it in white & then applied the kernels. Then I thought, oh this should be yellow, so I made some frosting yellow. :) I added the green fondant "leaves" or corn husk.
RESULT: Success / Fail. :)
We are good at this! / We are good at this? They look pretty good (mostly the yellow one) even though they are technically not cake pops because I couldn't get them on the stick. I think it was because the cake I was using was a few days old and really dry. Usually you do want to use cake that is 1 day old according to different websites I've read, but I think my cake was too old.
It was a good project in that I learned how to make marshmallow fondant, which has become very helpful in different cooking/art projects. :) The corn husk turned out really well.
The best one is in a photo below.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
