How to Make Super Hero Cake Pops

 

Start by cutting your Fruit Roll Ups or liquorice into the shapes of super hero capes and chest emblems. Fold the narrower edge of the cape upward so that it will attach to your cake pops. (If you are using liquorice, you will need to flatten the candy with a rolling pin before cutting your shapes.)

Create a mixture of half meringue powder and half water. Use a small food-safe paint brush to apply a light coating of the mixture to your capes and chest emblems. Before the coating dries, sprinkle the shapes with disco dust to add some super hero sparkle. After the coating dries, gently shake off any excess disco dust and get ready to dip your cake pops.

Start by microwaving your blue candy melts in a bowl on low power for 30-seconds at a time. Stop and stir after each 30-second interval then repeat until the coating is completely melted.

 

Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the melted coating and then into a cake ball, gently pushing until the stick is about half way through the cake ball. Stand the cake pops upright in a styrofoam block or cake pop stand until the coating hardens.

 

Once the coating has hardened, securing your cake balls on the sticks, you can begin dipping. If your blue coating has cooled or thickened, repeat the microwave heating process.

Dip each cake pop straight down into the coating until the cake ball is completely covered and sealed. If you need to angle the cake pop, gently tilt it in one direction and then another. Do not stir the coating with the cake pop or it may fall off of the stick. Remove the cake pop from the melted coating by pulling it straight up. Then, turn the cake pop at an angle and gently tap off any excess coating. Turn the cake pop upright.

 

Working quickly while the coating is still wet, attach a cape to the back of your cake pop and a chest emblem to the front. If you have trouble getting the shapes to stay, let your coating cool a little so that it is thicker and acts more like glue.
