AI want to make some rainbow coloured cake pops for my daughter's birthday party, but I can't find candy melts around here :( and I don't want to coat them with chocolate. Can I cover them with royal icing????? Anyone tried that??
RI dries rock hard. I wouldn't want to bite into that. Maybe try almond bark candy coating? you can get it in white chocolate then color maybe? I don't know what to color it with since I use the colored candy melts.
Or do regular chocolate and decorate with rainbow sprinkles while the cake inside is rainbow colored? "Cupcakes and cardio" on youtube has a nice tutorial for doing that :)
edit to add I find almond bark in my local grocery store by the other baking stuff (choco chips, icing tubes, etc)
AOr try a thickish poured fondant icing, like you would use for petit fours?
