Today is the last day of preschool, the summer holiday is starting... So I asked if I could make the munchkins something nice.
These are cakepops! And pretty easy, too. You will need small cupcakes, white and red candy melts (i'm afraid you do need those, chocolate is really hard to melt and get crystallized correctly) and some royal icing. And skewers, to use as sticks for the pops!
Just bake some mini cupcakes, cut off the top and use some melted candy melts to glue the bottom to the top, upside down.
Dip a skewer into the candy melts and stick it in the cupcake. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Melt the white (or yellow) candy melts in a cup. Dip the cupcake mushroom in the candy melts and make sure it is completely covered. Shake of excess. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Melt the red candy melts in a cup. Dip the top of the mushrooms in the red candy melts. Shake off well. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Make some white royal icing, or use some white candy melts and a skewer. Fill a piping bag with icing and make the dots on the mushrooms. Leave to dry overnight.
And yum! Edible mushrooms!
