Place the cake crumbs into a bowl, then add the buttercream. Use your hands to combine the two together, until it resembles a soft dough. Wrap this with cling film and place into the fridge for one hour, or until firm.
Divide the mixture into equal balls, 12 large or 24 small, and place them onto a lined tray.
Pour the contents of the melts into a microwavable bowl and then place into the microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir & heat for a further 30 seconds until melted. Then stir continuously for one minute and use as required.
In turn, dip each stick into the melts and then insert into each cake pop shape until all have been completed. Place into the fridge to chill until set. The melts can then be reheated or can be placed into a melting pot to keep warm. Take the cake pops out of the fridge and dip each one into the melts, until all have been covered. Then place into the fridge to set firm.
Colour small amounts of flower & modelling paste using Pink, Baby Blue & Yellow ProGel, and knead until even in colour, and then place into a polythene bag to stop the paste from drying out.
Make each of the roses using each of the three colours, and a rose mould, using the smallest size, and leave to dry firm. Make the ears by rolling into a cone shape, and pressing through the centre with a veining tool. Brush the centre with Edible Glue, then add a small cone shape using the pink paste and press lightly down to secure in place. Next, using the white paste, roll into a small cone shape to make the horn, then using a small pallet knife mark all the way around the cone shape. Leave to dry firm. Once dry, paint over each horn shape with Light Gold Metallic Food Paint, and leave to dry.
Take the cake pops out of the fridge, and brush over each one with Pearl White lustre. Draw the eye lashes directly onto the cake pops, using the thicker end of a Black Food Art Pen. Then add a touch of Pearl Blush Pink Lustre to give each cake pop rosy cheeks. When each one has been completed, the ears and horns can then be attached to each cake pop using royal icing. Finally, add one colour of each of the roses, placing them in front of the horn & ears, again using royal icing to secure them in place.
These are fantastic for themed party favours, or to give out to friends & family to enjoy.
