Well I had some left over cake from last week’s engagement cake and when I say left over I mean the tops I cut off to level the layers! So I smushed them up (that’s a real technical term) and mixed with my own buttercream recipe (I used the store bought crap the last time) and attempted the pops again.
I wasn’t sure it was going to go well. After attempting to cover one in candy melts, the stick fell out. So I put them in the freezer for 20 minutes and that seemed to do the trick. The melts hardened a bit so I had to add a little shortening to the mix, but after that I was on a roll! I added some sprinkles for a little extra girly essence!
They are still a little sweet for my tastes but the girls seem to like them!
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1/2 cup shortening at room temperature
- 4 cups icing sugar
- 4 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
Cream together, makes 3 cups!
I turned them into a bouquet but I just can’t keep the girls from eating the “flowers”.
Thanks for looking!
