Bake: cake pops (again)
Girl #2 requested cake pops again this year for her school party.
I wasn't promoting the idea as they are time consuming but you can't argue with the birthday girl so I obliged.
I built the cupcake tower last year, click here to see the how to.
Here's how I made the cake pops:
1. Bake cake, crumble with fork.
Mix half container of ready made frosting with cake crumbs.
2. Roll cake mixture into balls, chill.
3. Melt a few chocolate chips, dip end of lollipop stick into chocolate then press firmly into cake ball:
4. Dip pop into white candy melts then refrigerate again.
This is your 'crumb coat' and provides a base for the pink.
5. Dip into pink candy melts and add sprinkles.
Place pops into predrilled holes in cupcake stand:
Here's last year's version:
Practice makes perfect, but I'm taking a break from cake pops for awhile.
