aka Elsa Cakepops

Wait! Let me think! I already prepared vanilla cakepops which resemble Olaf and chocolate cookie pops that look like princess Anna. There is only one left – strawberry flavoured cakepops aka Elsa cakepops. Then the most-loved Disney trio is complete and the girls and boys at the birthday party can choose between the three most common flavours: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

There is only one problem: Preparing cakepops with a fruity flavour just doesn’t work out. At least not for me. Either I add cautiously a few spoons of strawberry sauce or jam and won’t taste anything strawberry-like. Or I am venturous and empty a whole bottle into the dough to get a strawberry taste but a damn sticky dough.

Unfortunately, to give you a glimpse behind the scenes blog, my cakepop dough got sticky again. A mere disaster. So what do I do? Throw it away and prepare a new one? No way! There has to be a better way. Maybe adding  a few more crumbs or butter? I have none left. Putting it into the freezer? Yessss! That has to work. And it did.

Freezing the dough did it’s trick!

What about you? Do you want to make strawberry flavoured cakepops the way I did? Here is the recipe:

Instructions
  1. Beat the butter until frothy. Gradually add strawberry sauce or strawberry jam and mix it well. Then add cake crumbles.
  2. Shape small mountains out of the dough and keep it in the fridge for about an hour.
  3. Melt the Candy Melts in a pot over boiling water (alternatively, melt the white chocolate add a drop of blue food colouring and, if neccessary, add coconut oil to dilute the chocolate)
  4. Use skewers and dip their blunt ends into the chocolate. Then stick them into the top of the cakepops (until you almost reach the bottom). This way the cakepops will stay on the skewer. Put the cakepops into the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Prepare a bowl of your light blue sugar and melt the chocolate if neccessary. Dip the cakepops into the chocolate until everything is covered. If the chocolate stops dripping, coat the cakepops wih sugar. But be quick otherwise the sugar won't stick.
  6. Keep the cakepops in the fridge until you want to eat them
Recipe Notes

I have a few more tips for you to make these cakepops a success:

  1. If the dough is to sticky due to the strawberry sauce, put the dough into the freezer for about 20 minutes. The dough should be more solid by then and you can shape little mountains. Put the cakepops into the freezer for 2 to 3 hours to prevent them from getting sticky again. The following steps can then be done without the 15 minutes in the fridge.
  2. I use the dull ends of the skewers to prevent the little kiddies from injuring themselves while eating those cakepops. Furthermore, I used pliers to blunt the sharp points.
  3. You don't have to buy coloured sugar. It is way cheaper and quite easy to colour it on your own. Check out this German video from Nicoles Zuckerwerk (which I used) or this English one.
  4. I have a last advice for sugar coating your cakepops. Of course, you can roll the cakepops right in the bowl with sugar but if the chocolate is still dripping a bit, the sugar will turn into a lumpy mess. Instead prepare a piece of tinfoil or parchment paper, hold the cakepop right over it and start spinning it slowly while sprinkling it with sugar.

There is only one final piece missing. To make them look like queen Elsa, you need this cute printable cakepop topper.

With this in mind,

Remove your gloves and freeze the cakepops.
