If you love celebrating with sweets then you will love our rainbow cakesicle tutorial using Edible Art Paint by Becca of Sweet Whimsy Shop. Last week she shared how to make the rectangle Hip Hip Hooray Cakesicles and this week she's sharing the second style she made with rainbow stripes in 2 styles + how to put together a sweet celebration party table! Take it away Becca...
Supplies for making Rainbow Cakesicles + Cakebars
Cake Balls, in your choice of flavor(s)
White chocolate candy coating (Such as Wilton’s Candy Melts)
Popsicle sticks, if making cakesicles
Edible Gold Paint (or Rolkem’s Super Gold, mixed with lemon extract)
How to Make Rainbow Cakesicles with Stripes + Gold Splatter
I love rainbows. They just make me happy! And, rainbows + gold splatter on a cakesicle...can there be anything better? This technique uses the same splatter-style as described in my last post, Hip Hip Hooray Cakesicles but you’ll save that step for the end.
To begin, use your Edible Art paints to paint a rainbow design. To help with planning/painting, I put a small dash of paint on each stripe that will be painted in that color. That way, when your toddler distracts you by asking for her 87th snack of the day, you can easily return to where you left off.
After each stripe is painted and dried, use a sturdy piece of paper or cardstock to create a barrier right along the line of the stripe/smooth divide. While holding the cardstock in place, tap the paint-covered fan brush to splatter gold drips all over the white half of the cakesicle/cakebar.
How to Make Rainbow Cakesicles with Nonpareils + Gold Edible Paint
Use a paintbrush to paint gold paint on the smooth side of the cakesicle/cakebar. If you are using the Rolkem + Lemon Oil solution, as I did, you’ll need to paint at least 2 coats. If you use Edible Art Paint there are a few gold shades so you can choose the tone that works best for you.
I love the tiny rainbow-dotted sprinkle stripes of this design. To achieve it, use a piping bag filled with melted white candy melts (and a very fine tip, to create a thin line) to pipe a line on top of the indentation on the bar. Before the chocolate cools, spoon the nonpareils over it. I was able to pipe 2 lines, and then sprinkle with nonpareils. If your workspace is pretty cool, you may have to work with just one line at a time. I live in Savannah, Georgia, where it’s still 87-degrees for most of September, so “cool” is not a word I can use to describe my workspace until usually mid-January.
Add the two rainbow cakesicle designs to a plate, wrap up as party favors or create a full display of them for a birthday party table! The possibilities are endless! The trend of adding multiple kinds of sweets to a display not only adds interest it provides a variety of treats to please any palette!
Hip Hip Hooray Party Table with Cakesicles
My specialty is in making cake pops and cakesicles. When I was asked to style party table using the cakesicles I made I was intrigued. I haven't done many of those but found it was fun to play around with the placement and to think of other ways cakesicles could be displayed and how you can use leftover supplies like the sprinkles as table confetti and to put on cake stands. Bakers Party Shop carries a wide variety of My Mind's Eye Partyware and the Hip Hip Hooray collection was the color palette that all of the cakesicles in this post and last weeks were inspired from. It is such a cheerful and happy color collection that works for everyone! And I think I can pat myself on the back at how my party table turned out!
For those that want to create single serving treats for your party or celebration featuring cakesicles, cupcakes and cookies if you are still wanting the presence of a cake without having to make one we have a solution for you! Alyson of Confection Deception creates the most detailed, creative and fun faux cakes and sweets. We asked her to use the Hip Hip Hooray Sprinklefetti sprinkle mix and create a celebration cake to coordinate with the cakesicles. Isn't the cake result amazing?! Check out her shop if you are looking for faux sweets for your next party, celebration or styled shoot. Visit her sister shop Painted Parade for toppers, party animals (like the dino featured on the cake) and fun party plates with her designs.
