Candy melt & Cream cheese

Hello everyone,

I would like to make cupcake pops for my son's 1st birthday party.
Where can I find cream cheese and candy melt ?

(as the b'day party is next Sunday, I don't think I have time to order it on the internet).

Thanks for your help ;-)

Alex

Re: Candy melt & Cream cheese

Do you think "Gruyère double cream" would be more or less equivalent to cream cheese ?

Alternative for the cake pops: Look for some white or chocolate "couverture" in Coop/Migros baking section.

If you order straight away, pay by credit card, choose A-Post delivery, then I'll be able to get Candy Melts to you next week. I stock Wilton Candy Melts in my online shop.

Re: Candy melt & Cream cheese

No idea what you're making or what candy-melts are, but can't you use Phili as cream cheese - or even quark, creme fresh or mascarpone. All I think would be more suitable than thick, rich cream - especially for kiddies.
I'm sure there's cream cheese (or equivalent) on the refrigerated shelves in the supermarkets - often with added stuff like herbs and the like, but there's always a natural one. Look by Frischkäse.

Re: Candy melt & Cream cheese



From the packet:

"Wilton Candy Melts - Red

Great taste, smooth texture, microwaveable melts in vanilla flavour.
Use for dipping candy pops, lolly cakes or for molding your own colourful candy treats. "

For making cute cake pops like this:

You can buy Phili cream cheese just about anywhere.

You can also use white chocolate instead of candy melts, you just might need to double dip depending on the color of your cake.

Re: Candy melt & Cream cheese

Thanks everyone

I'll use the philadelphia cream cheese (never bought one or never tasted cream cheese in my life lol) and will order the candy melts on www.back-art.ch right now :-)

I'm making cupcakes pops (with oreos, hope they turn out good)

I'm missing one thing that I wish I could walk in Coop or Manor and buy it :-(
it's the "My little Cupcak Cake Pop" mold...

Cheers

I've seen Philly in both Coop and Migros.

Re: Candy melt & Cream cheese

Oh and if you could get the "CARS" mold I would love you even more lol
I need one for mid-January :-P

I'm going to OZ in February and will get that "My little cupcacke" pop mold. I may be able to give you more information on the manufacturer then.

Have a good day

Re: Candy melt & Cream cheese

Hi Xana,

I'm afraid getting supplies from Australia are going to be too expensive. The transport costs are extremely high, making the final price just too much for what the items are worth.

Licensed items are hard to get hold of - unless your name is Mr Migros, or similar
