How to make Beach Flip Flop Cake Pops!

Summer is officially here! And to kick off this sizzling season, why don't we make some flip flop cake pops. Aren't they the cutest:)

What you Need for CakePops:

-Cake Crumbs -Cream Cheese Icing -Lollipop Sticks -Styrofoam Block

What you need to decorate your Flip Flop Pops:

Edible Food markers-Oval Cutter-Food Writer-Blue Candy Melts-Cookie Crumbs

-Edible food markers (Wilton) -White Fondant (Satin Ice) -Oval (Wilton) cutter set.

You will be using the smallest oval cutter.

-Blue Candy Melts (Wilton) -Cookie Crumbs (edible sand)

Now that we have all our ingredients and goodies. We can make our flip flops.
1) Roll out a small piece of white fondant.

3. Use your smallest oval cutter and cut out all your oval shapes.

4. To make your flip flop shapes, you gently squeeze the center of your ovals making a waistline

Like this

6. This is the most important part, you will have to flip all your flip flops.

As soon as you do that, you will start to see your flip flops come to life.

7. After flipping all your flops, dry out you flip flops just a bit, (about 10 minutes). I know, you're so excited to use your food writers but trust me, just 10 minutes will make drawing on your flip flops so much easier.

Tick , tock, tick , tock .......

8) Ahhhhh after 10 minutes you can now start drawing:)

And you can use as many colors as you like:)

After drawing, set all your beautiful flip flops aside and we can start decorating our pops:)

If this is your first time making cake pop or you need a refresher on how to dip and melt your candy melts. Watch this DIY Cake Pop video and I promise you will be a cake pop pro:)

What you Need for Pops: -Cake Crumbs -Cream Cheese Icing -Lollipop Sticks -Cookie Crumbs -Styrofoam Block -Candy Melts

9) Melt your Blue Candy Melts and dip your lillipop sticks into the Cake Balls

(as shown on video)

10) Dip your pops into the Blue Melts or shall we say Blue Ocean:)

11) Dunk your blue pops into your bowl of cookie crumbs (Sand) and place it into your styrofoam block.

***Tip: Before dunking into your cookie crumbs, make sure all your blue melts have been tapped off of your cake pop (watch video) or else your cookie crumbs will start to cry :( and drip off your pop.

Take one of your pretty flip flops apply some candy melts onto the bottom of your flops with a tooth pick and then stick them on top of your pop
