"P" is for Pops

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:
Refrigerate again.


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.
Refrigerate.


Place pops into predrilled holes in cupcake stand:




 



Practice makes perfect, but I'm taking a break from cake pops for awhile.

You're way ahead of me! I have been taking a *long* break after ONE attempt at cake pops. Yours look super cute!

Hey - I can't believe you're still allowed to take homemade treats to school! Our district banned all of that stuff. Everybody's got food and peanut allergies nowadays, and the school won't allow anything homemade into the classroom.

No candy on holidays, either. :( It's misery. I sooo wish we could homeschool, lol

your pops look great!

I've only attempted these once before, and let's just say, mine were not as...picturesque. : )

Yours turned out great, though, and I love how you displayed them!

And I would LOVE it if you'd stop over and share this at Feature Friday
FREE-FOR-ALL, which just went live!

Can't wait to see you there!
