POKEMON POKEBALL CAKE POPS – NERDY NUMMIES

Hey guys, it’s Ro, welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! I got so many requests from you guys to make something Po-Ke-Mon! Themed, and I have been playing a lot of Omega Ruby on my 3DS XL, and my sister has been playing Alpha Sapphire, and we’ve been doing battles So today, we are gonna make some Pokeball pops from the game, let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: 1 baked cake, I’ve made a vanilla white cake, 1 box of cream cheese, technically these are 8 ounces, and we’re only gonna need to use 6 ounces, so we’ll have a little bit left over for some, I don’t know, bagels and cream cheese or some snacks or something! Then to decorate we’re going to be needing Candy Melts, we’ve got different colors, black, white, blue, purple, red, and, we will need lollipop sticks, a piece of wax paper, a baking sheet, a big mixing bowl, some round candies, I’m gonna be using Smarties, and, royal icing, I’ve dyed the royal icing 3 different colors, red, yellow and pink

alright, now let’s put it all together! The first thing that we’re gonna do to make our cake pops is crumb our cake into a big mixing bowl So you’re gonna take your cake and I got a little butter knife here, and you’re gonna cut it into 4 sections, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! Then you’re gonna pick up 2 pieces, and if they’re falling apart, that’s wonderful, that is what we want And then you’re gonna crumb them into this big bowl, just rub ‘em together And I try not to eat it all right here That’s my problem! Now that you got your cake crumbed, we are going to add the cream cheese

Oh! Now we use our hands again, this is… You can use a wooden spoon, or something to mix it up, but I’m gonna get in there! Then you’re just gonna keep kneading together until everything is well mixed Once combined, we’re gonna roll our cake mixture into little cake balls, and we’re gonna place them on top of this cookie sheet, lined with a piece of wax paper You’re gonna take a little bit of dough, and it’s really lumpy, so you’re gonna roll it, and press it into a ball shape Then you’re gonna do this to the rest of your mixture Once you’ve got your cake balls rolled, like I do over here

I’ve got some extra batter, so I’m gonna be making a couple sheets of these You are gonna pop them into the freezer for about 30 minutes to set, or you can put them in the refrigerator for about 1 hour Once your cake balls have chilled, I just took them out of the freezer, and I like to give them an additional roll So you just roll, roll, roll, roll ‘em one more time to get super smooth Over here I’ve heated up the white candy melts, and you can also use your microwave, but I’ve got one of these little fondue pots

So what you’re gonna do, is you're gonna take your lollipop stick, dip it in just a little bit, and then, you’re gonna press it about 1/2 way into the cake ball Then you’re gonna do this to make the rest of your cake pops I gotta dip ‘em all! Now it’s time to dip our cake pops, you want to make sure when you’re dipping them that they are completely cool, but not frozen, the temperature matters And also we are gonna be dipping all of our pops into some white candy melts over here, I have them heated up and ready to go because, all of these little pops are gonna look like Pokeballs So you’re just gonna take a pop, dip it straight down, straight up, let the excess drip off, boop-boop-boop-boop, ba-boop-boop, boop-boop-boop! Then you’re gonna place him over here on a Styrofoam block

Then you are gonna do this to the rest of your pops After all the cake pops have been dipped, I’m gonna let them sit for about 10 minutes, and during this time… I’m gonna play a Pokemon battle! Ro: Hey Molly you want to play a game with me? Mo: Sure! Ro: OK! Better watch out because, somebody caught a legendary with their Master Ball… Ro: Hey Mo, ready to battle? Mo: Oh yeah! Ro: OK, let’s just pick 3, because I still gotta finish the cake pops Mo: Deal Ro: OK! Ro: What 3 are you picking? Mo: I’m not telling, I’m not telling you, stay over there! Ro: Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm? Mo: Stay over there Ro: Fine, fine, I know who I’m picking! Ro: Oh Mo, you’re so cute with your little bow! Ro: Oh Mo, you would have little Pika

Mo: Starting with my best Ro: Earthquake! I did that in the spirit of California, because we have so many Ro: earthquakes here Mo: You just wiped me out! Ro: You’re welcome! Mo: OK, OK Mo: Walrein! Ro: Oh my god it’s Walrein! Mo: Isn’t he cute! Ro: He’s really cute, he kinda looks like Dad to me! Mo: Body slam! Ro: Oh! You squished me! Ro: Luxray! Mo: Oh my gosh! Ro: It’s super effective! Mo: OK, I’m gonna give you a taste of your own medicine, we’re gonna shake it up! Ro: No! It’s a California earth quake! Mo: Shake it up! California style! Ro: No! I was beat with my own tactics, no! Ro: GG Molly, you got me good She’s good to battle against, she’s pretty good! Ro: She’s been playing Pokemon forever, so she definitely has an advantage! Mo: I love it! Ro: But, um, then I can also learn from her! Ro: She'll take your techniques and turn them against you

Ro: Don’t use earthquake on this one! Ro: She’ll shake out a win! Now that the cake pops have set, we are gonna dip them for the second time, so that they will look like a Pokeball And I’m gonna start with the original Pokeball look, so we’re gonna be dipping them 1/2 way into red So you’re gonna take your cake pop, and I’m just gonna eyeball it, I’m gonna dip it about 1/2 way down Let the excess drip off, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! And then place it back in the foam block I’m gonna dip a few more to look like this, but then I’m gonna move on to another melted candy color, because I also want to make Great, and Master, and Ultra Balls! Now we’re gonna dip a few cake pops 1/2 way into blue, these will make the great balls

Got our black candy melts all heated over here, ready to dip! And now we’re gonna dip a couple of these to make our Ultra Balls, Ultra Balls are like, twice as good to eat! Last but not least, I just heated up the purple candy melts, and we are gonna be making a Master Ball, usually you only get 1 master ball, but, I’m gonna be making 2 because I’m gonna be giving 1 to my sister It’s time for my favorite part, it’s time to decorate! The first thing that we’re gonna be doing is taking the black royal icing, I put it into a plastic bag with a number 2 tip at the end for more control, and we are gonna ice a line all the way around our cake pop, in between the 2 colors Just finished icing on the black line, all the way around all of our Pokeballs And now, we are gonna add the little candy button I’ve separated a bunch of white Smarties, if you don’t have white Smarties you can use any round white candy

They’re so cute! So for this next step you’re just gonna take your black icing again, and ice a little circle blob right in the middle of your Pokeball, and then, stick on the candy while it’s still wet Now we’re gonna add the final decorations to our great ball, you’re gonna take your red icing, and we’re gonna decorate with 2 strips of red, on each side Now we’re gonna decorate the ultra ball, so take your yellow icing and black pop You’re basically gonna draw an H, so it’s super easy Last but not least, we’re gonna decorate our master ball, so you’re gonna take the white icing and I put a number 2 tip at the end

And we are just gonna ice a letter M right in the middle, and then on each side we’re gonna put a little bloop, bloop! Of pink! Ta-da! Here are the Pokeball Cake Pops that we made today! We’ve got the regular ball, the great ball, the ultra ball and the master ball, which is a must if you want to catch any legendary Pokemon! I’ll be posting lots of pictures of these on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram And if you guys make these, please take a picture and send it to me, I love seeing your baking creations! It just kinda makes my day!
