A young Christian’s First Communion is significant in his or her existence. It is a time for celebration and fellowship, and what better way to commemorate this than with visually appealing and delectable cake pops? This article will guide you through the process of creating delectable First Communion cake pops that will add a touch of sweetness to this holy event.
Communion Cake Pops
Kids adore cake pops, which are a delectable, bite-sized treat. The best aspect is that they can be created from cake crumbs in a catastrophe! I might have salvaged cake pops from a failed cake before.
These gorgeous pops are ideal for a simple communion cake concept. It is not a problem if you have never made cake poppers before. A crumbled cake, buttercream, lollipop sticks, cake melts or white chocolate, and decorations are all required.
- Chocolate Cake, prepared (I used 1/2 of a 9×13 devil food box cake)
- Chocolate Frosting: The amount depends on the moistness of the cake. I used two big spoonfuls. See video
- Two boxes Premium white chocolate, I used Baker’s brand update I now use candy melts
- cake pop sticks
- A large dish containing cake.
- Crumble to the consistency of fine fragments.
- Add frosting gradually until the cake is moist and can maintain a ball shape but is still slightly crumbly.
- Combine the frosting with the cake fragments using your hands.
- Make two cake mixture spheres using a mini ice cream scoop.
- Roll the mixture into a compact ball and position it on a plate.
- Repeat until all cake mixture has been formed into spheres.
- In the microwave, melt 2 to 4 ounces of white chocolate.
- Halfway through, insert the cake pop sticks into the cake spheres after dipping the tips in the white chocolate.
- Chill for roughly twenty minutes.
- In a large cup, melt the leftover chocolate. Ensure that you have enough chocolate to submerge the cake ball completely.
- Remove cakes from the freezer.
- Coat cake balls with chocolate by delicately dipping them in it.
- Allow excess chocolate to trickle off. If necessary, swirl and lightly touch.
- While the chocolate is still moist, sprinkle on the toppings. It will soon harden.
- Insert the cake pops into a block of Styrofoam to allow them to set.
- Place in the freezer to quicken the curing time.
- Cover with a clear treat container and ribbon if desired for gift giving.
- Store in an airtight container in a single layer in a chilly location.
- Take pleasure in it!
Tips For First Communion Pop Cakes
Here are some tips for first communion pop cakes:
- Want to make use of food coloring? I would suggest using confectionery melts as the coating instead of white chocolate. I was not impressed by the white chocolate’s ability to absorb food coloring. It resulted in a thicker cocoa. I acquired all of my ingredients from Target, including cake pop skewers and sprinkles. The Styrofoam I used was already in my possession, but you can purchase a block at craft stores or Walmart.
- Using only 1/2 of a 9-by-13-inch cake, the recipe yields approximately 13 cake spheres of medium size.
- Feel free to alter the cake and icing as you see fit. The red velvet cake topped with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate cocoa is delicious.
- You can also make the cake and frosting from scratch, but I cannot identify the difference in flavor.
Easy Communion Cakes To Make At Home
1. Simple Flower
This confection exemplifies the effectiveness of straightforward decoration. You can easily create your version of this image, which we discovered on Pinterest.
This basic communion cake is decorated with tiny white flowers to form the outline of a cross on plain white icing. You can purchase a flower plunger cutter online or use sprinkling to achieve the same effect. Simply outline the cross with a toothpick, then adhere your decorations along that line.
2. Communion Cupcakes
These Communion cupcakes from Mad4Cakes are a delicious alternative to the traditional communion cake. A cupcake with icing and a simple icing plaque on top.
You can purchase sugar paste in most supermarkets, roll it out very thinly, and then use a cookie cutter (or even a glass stem) to create a cake topper. You could add a cross, flower, initials, glitter, and other embellishments.
3. Communion Sheet Cake
A rectangular sheet cake is an excellent choice for feeding a gathering. Keep the decoration to a minimum with white buttercream and perhaps a few berries, fresh flowers, or sprinkles, as this stunning cake does.
4. Communion Dress Cupcakes
Consider the possibilities with a basic cupcake! Form your cupcakes into a replica of your daughter’s communion gown, then decorate the cupcakes with icing in a swirl pattern to create a magnificent communion gown.
5. Stained Glass Cake
We adore this cake’s stained-glass appearance. I promise that neither the shape nor the frosting should deter you from attempting this recipe.
First, bake a rectangular cake; then, cut curved edges at one end using a pointed knife to create the window shape. Then, create your buttercream icing and divide it into bowls (one for each color you intend to use), then use your icing colors to achieve the desired hues. Use a light color (white or yellow, as in the photo) to sketch the outline of the stained glass panes, including a cross or whatever else you desire. Alternate colors and fill in the “stained glass” once the outline has been established. The outcome is enormously effective and extremely original!
6. Rose Cake
We have not neglected to deliver the EASY communion cakes we promised! In the video above, you have already seen how to pipe roses on cupcakes, so this is just moving things to the next level. These blossoms are stunning, and the cake is certain to impress.
7. How to Make a Cross-Shaped Cake
Communion cakes are traditionally adorned with a cross, which may be intimidating to a novice baker. This image was discovered on Pinterest, and you could replicate it by using white buttercream to cover the cake and colored frosting for the dots, patterns, and border if desired. The best part is that you don’t need special cake pans to create a cross cake; a large sheet cake can be used instead. Simply cut the sheet cake half along its length, then cut one half at the third mark.
