Tiny Graduate cake pop Tutorial
THIS IS A DIGITAL ITEM (NOT ACTUAL CAKE POPS)
This is a step-by-step video tutorial demonstrating how to make the Tiny Graduate cake pop shown in the photos. Only the Tiny Graduate style, as shown in the first photo, will be featured - not the other cake pop styles shown. Skills & resources to create the piped 2022 cake pop will be covered, but not specifically demonstrated.
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. This is for a bakery business owner, hobby baker, or "side hustle" baker who wants to learn how move beyond creating basic round cake pops, and start hand-sculpting designs.
In this tutorial, you'll learn:
*How to make little graduation hat toppers on each "graduate."
*How to make your own piping bag with parchment paper
*How to pipe with melted chocolate (candy melts)
*Tips for piping different types of eyes/faces
*How to prevent lollipop sticks from "yellowing" over time
*Tips for preventing or fixing common mistakes made when making cake pops, including how to prevent cracking in the chocolate coating
*How to mix the "light peach" color shown for the Tiny Graduate's skin tone. Tips for creating darker skin tones as well.
*Where to purchase all the needed supplies (including purchase links for just about everything!)
In addition to the video download, you will receive a supply list with hyperlinks to purchase needed supplies. If the hyperlinks do no work for you, please email me at SweetWhimsyShop@gmail.com after you have purchased and downloaded the video. An abbreviated supply list will be shown within the video, but a full supply list, with hyperlinks to make purchases, is also available.
