Cake Pops!!

15 Aug

Yesterday, I did the unthinkable.  I decided to make cake pops.  It was actually pretty hard to get them right, and they are quite time consuming.  Although in the end, I felt pretty happy with my colorful, tasty results.  I bought the cake pop mold thinking that I would need it to make the delicious dessert, but little did I know that you actually don’t need these; all you need is cake and frosting and two hands waiting to mush them together (I secretly had fun doing the messy part).

Of course, I chose funfetti. 🙂 I only made a batch of 12 in the cake pop mold (I thought it would be fun to use it even though I didn’t need to), then baked the rest into a giant blob (mmm)

Image

Even though the balls spilled over a little in their mold, I just ended up mushing them into cake+frosting goo.

They look like UFO’s! Haha

Post-mushing

Shaping them into little balls was the easy part.  I had to dip the lollipop sticks into the chocolate, stick them into the cake, and wait for it to harden.  I learned this after I tried to completely coat the cake pop with chocolate immediately after sticking it*.

Clearly, things got a little messy**.

The final product!!  Some of them are prettier than the others, but let’s not judge the poor little things.

Not bad, huh? 🙂

 

*Note the failure. 

**Note the eaten failure.
