Hello! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Today we are gonna be doing Harry Potter Cauldron, like, witch, cake pops The reason is because I got so many requests for something really Halloween-y
So if you just want to make witch cauldron cake pops, this is it, and more people wanted, I got so many more requests for like, More Harry Potter, More Harry Potter, the frogs weren’t enough! So, let’s get started! The things that I will be using today to make these will be: Big mixing bowl, This is a pre-made cake, it’s a yellow cake using box cake mix, normal buttercream frosting, lollipop sticks, decorative icings in 4 colors, black, red, orange and green A couple of these little fancy tips, just the small size so you can do little designs Black chocolate melts, these are not dark chocolate, these are actually black, so if you go to the Wilton chocolate melts they will have black And, 1 of my favorite candies, Nerds! I separated a bunch of green Nerds for decorating for later The first thing I’m gonna do is crumb, crumb up all the cake
This is how you do it, cut it into pieces, I like to cut it into 4 pieces Pick up some pieces, like so, and then just rub ‘em together to make little cake crumbs It’s like grating cheese on itself And then if you have bigger pieces, just break it up with your little fingers Break-break-break-break-break-break! And the ratio that I like to use is 1 box cake to 1 little tub of frosting
So now you’re just gonna take your hands, and get in there and get messy, massage everything together so it’s 1 consistency, looks a little like this Just for reference, nice and sticky Take a little bit, and roll little balls, and then put ‘em on this wax paper And just roll little balls Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm
And they don’t have to be perfect circles, because after you put them in the freezer you can kind of re-shape them to be perfect But get them into that general circle shape We got all our little cake balls, now we’re gonna put them in the freezer for about 40 minutes And you can use this time to get all your decorating stuff out and ready! Meee! Now what we’re gonna do is take these little lollipop sticks, and you’re going to dip them into a little bit of melted chocolate, meah Like this, and then you’re just gonna stick ‘em about 3/4 of the way into the little cake pop
The chocolate is acting like a glue to make sure that the cake pops stay on The last time that I did this, I dipped the pops in frosting first and the frosting did not hold very well Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh! But then I did a bit more research and they said that you should really use the melted chocolate and I was like, ah, that makes sense! Da-dew! Now that we’ve got them all in there we’re gonna put them back in the freezer for 5 minutes Ding, they’re done! And ready to dip! Here we go! Dipping it straight down, and then we’re just going to stick it directly back onto the wax paper, because that will be the top of the cauldron We let these cool for a few minutes, and, check them out… They’re so cute! We’re gonna start with the red frosting and we’re gonna paint flames at the bottom of the cauldron
And then on top of that we’ll put a little bit of orange These already turned out so much better than last time, I’m so excited So yes, the technique of dipping it first into chocolate is a good technique! With the red, I am using a number 2 tip and with the orange, I am using a number 1 tip Ta-da! We did all the little flames all the way around, they look awesome! And now we’re gonna take the black frosting and make the little cauldron handles Eeeee! I have a number 2 on the top
So I first did 1 dot on the side, and then a second 1, to kinda mark where I’m gonna start and end And then draw a circle over it Boom! And now, the last step, is putting all these little Nerds on top, we’re gonna take green icing with a number 2, put it on top and then just sprinkle on the little nerds Ta-da! We made Harry Potter Cauldron Cake Pops! These are so cute, they turned out so well! So much better than last time when we did Mario Mushroom Cake Pops! Those 1 up pops were looking pretty sad But these look so cute! Thanks you guys for suggesting it!
