Let’s Use Cake Pop Mold Instructions to Make Christmas Cakesicles
Crumble cake and add to stand mixer. Add a little bit of frosting and mix well until mixture sticks together well when squeezed
Add a spoonful of melted brown candy melts to the cakesicle mold and using the back of the spoon, coat the sides of the mold. Place in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Repeat with a second layer of brown candy melts and chill for another 15-20 minutes. Fill the mold with cake mixture pushing firmly. Leave about 1/8 inch space.
Add green acrylic stick to the opening of the mold and chill for 15-20 minutes. Cover the cake with another layer or brown candy melts and scrape off any excess with an offset spatula. Chill for 20 minutes.
Carefully remove the cakesicle from the mold gently pushing the top first then remove the bottom. Using a Glitter Brush, add Luxe Glitter to the top of the cakesicle. Fill a piping bag or plastic baggie with a small amount of melted brown candy melts, to be used as “glue” and attach a large round sprinkle ball for the reindeer nose, and 2 antlers at the top of the cakesicle.
Let harden for 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
