This blog has been quiet for a very long time. Let’s say it has been on maternity leave! Now my youngest is 17 months old and I am desperate to get back to crafting and baking. So, here we go – in English only to save some time – some yummy baking I did last weekend for our house warming party.
Apple Cake Pops 24 pieces (people actually thought there was an apple inside all of them!)
3 packs of Oreo biscuits
6 tbsp cream cheese
3 tbsp apple jam
1,5 bags of Caramel Candy Melts
Edible Dust (I used Rainbow Dust Edible Silk Ginger Glow)
Cake Pop sticks (I used adorable plastic sticks from Wilton that look like real wooden sticks from a branch)
- Crush the biscuits in a blender into fine crumbs.
- Mix cream cheese and apple jam with the crumbs and form small balls.
3. Let the balls rest in the fridge for an hour or so. Melt a few candy melts, dip the end of the pop sticks into the melts and push then into the balls (see pic above). This helps the sticks to stay in place and prevent the balls from falling off.
4. Melt the Candy Melts and add a teaspoon of oil to make it runnier. Dip the pops into the melts and let them harden in the fridge. Finish with some marzipan leaves and Edible Dust to give the apples a beautiful shimmer.
I used a PME Plunger Rose Leaf cutter for the leaves that I cut from marzipan, let them dry to shape and attached to the apples with edible glue.
