*New* recipe preview- you are the first to see it here. You all are so lucky. But I have to admit, I was very pleased with these little cake bites. The best part about these beauties… they don’t take much time at all. Very few ingredients, so they won’t break your budget. And you can color coordinate the flower petals with a spring table setting, or your party theme. The sky is the limit!
Here’s the recipe. Take into account that you can use any cake bite recipe, I would use Triple Berry Cheesecake, or the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup– because they are mine, and because they are the best- in my humble opinion. But it’s up to you!
Spring Flowers from 101 Gourmet Cake Bites
1 lb. green melting chocolate or candy coating
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
Pastel Gumdrops, small round
Pastel candy corns, variety of colors
Heat green melting chocolate per directions on package. Add 2 tbsp. vegetable oil and stir to combine with warm chocolate. Using round cake balls, shaped and ready to dip, or cake pops (whatever your heart desires), dip into green chocolate, covering all sides. Gently tap cake bite until excess chocolate slides off. Allow cake bite or cake pop to dry.
Then, use your warm melting chocolate as your glue, place a small gumdrop in the center, or side of the round cake bite or pop, sliced in half.
Next, take your pastel candy corn, one at a time, dipping bottom pointed side into the warm melting chocolate, and press gently next to the round gum drop center. Hold firm for 20 seconds or until the chocolate sets. Repeat with all the candy corn, until the petals of the flower take shape. You can place them on a foam round covered in moss, or in a vase for display. Perfect for Mother’s Day or a get well gift.
Happy Mother’s Day & Happy Baking!
