Tiny (elf-sized) Cake Pop Box Tutorial
This is a step-by-step video tutorial demonstrating how to make the Tiny (elf-sized) Cake Pop Box set, as shown in the photos.
I spent many hours over several days (after weeks of envisioning this idea in my head!) troubleshooting and problem-solving to construct the perfect "elf-sized" box of cake pops. In this tutorial, I'm sharing everything I've learned so that you can recreate the same boxed set in about 30 minutes...instead of 30 hours ;)
This tutorial is best for someone who has made cake pops or cake balls before. This is not an "Intro to Cake Pops" tutorial. Some cake pop "basics" will be covered in this video, but those skills are not the primary content.
In this tutorial, you'll learn:
*How to measure & prepare a stand for the cake pop box
*How to make the sticks for the tiny cake pops
*Exact measurements for the cake balls, to be sure they fit inside the box
*Tips to prevent cracks in your cake pops
*How to recreate the display exactly as shown in the photos
*Sources for all the materials and supplies needed
You'll also receive a PDF printable of the "North Pole Cake Pop Shop" tags used on the boxes.
Additionally, you will receive a supply list with hyperlinks to purchase needed supplies. The supply list will include a template to use for creating the cake pop stand/base for the box, as well as a template for cutting the cake pop sticks to size.
***Be sure to print the Supply List / Template page at 100% (Full Size). Some printers will automatically reduce the size of the page before printing, and you may need to override that and "Print Full Size" or "Print at 100%" to ensure the correct size is printed. You can confirm that you have printed the correct size paper by cutting the template for the box base (where you'll later insert the cake pops), and sliding it into the clear box. The rectangle should fit perfectly inside the box, with barely any space on any side ***
