These Rudolph-inspired cake pops are sure to delight your little guests. To make, form balls of any baked cake mixture with your hands and chill for about 1 hour, then insert a lollipop stick into each ball and dip in melted chocolate. Chill until set, then decorate with marshmallows, cherries and pretzels. To finish off, insert a striped straw into each stick and decorate with a piece of ribbon. Display them upright in a white container filled with a block of floral foam. Top the container with fake snow and a printable candy jar label.
A simple, layered white cake from the grocery store is easily dressed up with candy. To make, place a store-bought cake on a decorative stand. Line starlight mints around the bottom of the cake to create a border. Place extra mints in a plastic bag and crush into pieces using a mallet. With the palm of your hand, push the pieces into the sides of the cake until covered. Finish the top with a few old-fashioned lollipops. Label each dessert with a colorful food label.
Everyone loves cupcakes. Bake your favorite recipe at home or buy from the store and dress them up with paper cupcake toppers and wrappers. Print the cupcake topper template and use a craft punch or scissors to cut them into rounds. Then, attach the paper shape to a four-inch lollipop stick using tape or a one-inch white circle label. Cupcake wrappers are easy to make from decorative paper to match the theme. Displayed on a pretty cake stand, these cupcakes are hard to resist.
Cake pops are delicious in any form, but are especially appealing in the shape of adorable gingerbread boys and girls. To make, bake a boxed or homemade cake in a 13-inch by 9-inch pan as directed. Crumble cake and mix with a can of frosting. Form cake mixture into a flat layer and cut out with a mini gingerbread man cookie cutter. Chill the cutouts. Next, dip a lollipop stick into melted chocolate and insert into the cutout to hold the stick in place. Dip the entire cutout in melted chocolate and tap on the side of the bowl to remove excess. Let dry, then decorate with red and white icing. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
