1. PREP FILLING
In a large bowl, crumble the cake into fine crumbs. Start by adding 1 TBS of buttercream to the cake crumbs. Combine with your hands till the mixture is the consistency of dough and the cake holds together if squeezed. If you need to add more frosting, go ahead and do so.
2. MELT EASY CANDY
Pop the Orchid Purple Easy Candy bag of quick-melting chips into the microwave for 30-second intervals. Knead bag in between each interval.
3. ASSEMBLE CAKESICLES
Pour approximately 1-2 TBS of Easy Candy into each cavity of the mold. Use the popsicle stick to spread evenly throughout each cavity.
FANCY TIP: Get extra coverage along the sides of each cavity. That’s where it could crack most easily when popping out of the mold.Insert popsicle sticks.
4. SET EASY CANDY
Place fully coated Halle Round Mold in the fridge for approximately 5 minutes to set. The Easy Candy should be cool and firm to the touch.
5. ADD FILLING
Once the Easy Candy is set, add in your filling to each cavity. Make sure to flatten down any filling so the top is smooth.
FANCY TIP: Be sure not to overfill the cavity. Leave a small gap between the top of the filling and the edge of the top of the mold so there will be room for Easy Candy to fully seal the back.
6. COVER FILLING
To seal the cakesicle, add a small amount of Easy Candy on top of the filling. Easy Candy should be flush with the top of the mold. Wipe away any excess candy coating with your spatula.
7. SET CAKESICLES
Place the mold in the fridge for 5 minutes so Easy Candy will fully set. The Easy Candy should be cool and firm to the touch.
8. REMOVE CAKESICLES
Gently remove each letter by pressing from underneath the mold, while gently peeling away from the sides to easily get each cakesicle out.
9. MAKE IT SPARKLE WITH PRISM POWDER®
Use a paintbrush to dust on Burmese Gold Prism Powder all over the cakesicles.
10. DRIZZLE & DECORATE IT FANCY
In a zigzag motion, drizzle Easy Candy over each cakesicle. While Easy Candy is still slightly warm, decorate with King Cake Fancy Sprinkles.
