Princess Carriage Cake Pops

Princess Carriage Pops  

With a sprinkling of fairy dust and a whisper of imagination . . . 

 these plump little cake pops turned into a royal carriage fit for a princess.
This silhouette, of one very special princess, was my inspiration for creating these magical cake pops. 
If you are interested in where I got this done or would like one of your own prince or princess please click here silhouette .

 I started off with a basic white cake recipe.  Baked it, cooled it, crumbled it.
 Added two large scoops of buttercream icing.
Mixed to the consistency of a truffle: moist but not wet.
 Rolled out six heaping scoopfuls into smooth rounds.
Now we're rolling!  Even added some pearlized dusting. Its starting to come together now.
Until one of my wheels went flat and my rosettes looked more like tire valves.  I'm pretty sure the Princesses would not dig valves.  So back to the drawing board
Piping on the swirled carriage wheels felt better, at least until my fondant skills improve!  

Added some vines and royal icing roses.
 The Princess' initial in the middle and . . .

But wait . . . I have these little cameos that would fit perfectly.
and . . . Viola!

Tres magnifique!

Le petit gateau!  (That's little cake)

 Something about these just makes me want to speak French!

Or take a trip to Paris.

So what did the Princess think?
Princess approved!
