Lady Gaga Cake PopsPosted by Cupcake Kelly on Oct 31, 2011 in Cake, Cake Truffles & Pops | 5 comments
The design comes from April’s new book Top of The Cake Pops. You may have read her blog Rhubarb and Rose. I have mentioned her in the past, mostly in frustration when my cake pops kept turning out badly! I also mentioned her wedding cake pops on Cupcakes Take The Cake.
Not owning a book specifically about cake pops this was useful for me. The cake recipe is just enough to make about 20 regular cake pops and some of the tips helped me get that more polished looking finish.
Not quite as good as April’s but a good first try! I didn’t have all the materials but I managed to make due with what I had at home. Since I make a lot cake I had most of the ingredients to hand. There were a few items I had never heard us such as gum tragacanth and rejuvenator spirit.
Decapitated! Sorry Gaga, but I had to get to the cake goodness inside of you!
I used an extra long stick dipped it more chocolate than usual.
The pop is made from one pop rolled into a mini cocktail sausage shape and another regular sized cake pop. I skewered the body first and then the head. Decorate quickly before the chocolate starts to dry! I only made one Lady Gaga so her skin is pink but April goes in to detail about what colors to mix to achieve the right color skin tone.
