For those who don’t know how to make cake pops, check out my basic cake pop tutorial. I covered my cake pops in green and set it aside in styrofoam to hold the cake pops in an upwards position.
Now onto the details of Brobee….
I thought chocolate morsels was the best size for Brobee’s Horns. So I melted some vanilla bark and dyed it red/orange with my candy oils. Now its time to cover the morsels. The key is to wait until the melted bark is not too hot, because it will melt the morsels.
I set a morsel on a fork and used a spoon to drizzle and cover the morsel completely.
Then I placed the morsels on parchment paper. I had to use a toothpick as help to get the morsel off the fork.
After all the morsels were dry, I put them all on a clean parchment paper and also got my royal icing eye balls ready to go glue onto the cake pop. Use the melted chocolate as the glue agent.
I used the melted red vanilla bark to glue on the eyeballs and horns onto the cake pop.
Then I used the leftover melted red vanilla bark to pipe onto the cake pop for Brobee’s mouth. I used a disposable piping bag because when chocolate dries in the piping bag, its a pain to clean up. In addition, I didn’t fill the piping bag too much cause I wanted to have control while piping onto the cake pops.
While waiting for the mouth to dry, I needed black. So I mixed so black candy color oils into my red vanilla bark to get the black I needed.
Adding in a lot of candy color oils can cause the bark to get thick and not as smooth. You can add some shortening to thin out the chocolate if needed.
Then I piped on the black chocolate for Brobee’s eyebrows and mouth.
And there you have it! Brobee Cake Pops!!!
Lessons learned….If I had to do it again, I would not put the eyes as high so I can pipe better eyebrows on Brobee
