That's right...a cake pop takeover here on the blog. I know as of late they have been taking over my kitchen. I have been making different styles, different flavors and even a different shape. I always have people ask me for the recipe for these guys, so here goes.
Step one- make your favorite cake. It can be from scratch or from a box, doesn't matter, just bake it off and let it cool.
Step two- crumble the cake in a big mixing bowl and then mix with your favorite frosting or icing. Once again can be homemade or can be out of a can (I've done both and they both taste great).
Step three- shape into balls, insert lollipop sticks, let set in refrigerator (or if you are in a hurry the freezer) and then dip into melted chocolate.
Step four- enjoy!
See, they are pretty easy and if you would like a more detail recipe, go to Bakerella.com. That's were I first saw cake pops. You will be amazed what she does with cake pops. She even has a book coming out this fall (have to pre-order mine today) She's great at giving step by step instructions with great pictures.
Below, I have pictures of the cake pops (well some of the cake pops) I have made over the past year. It's fun coming up with different ways to make a simple cake on a stick so yummy. Enjoy (I know I have)!
Sometimes (I will admit) I get a little overwhelmed with all the cake pops orders, so here's a little cake pop humor. ;)
Cake pops for my oldest's last day of preschool. The teachers were very happy to find out my middle child would be attending next year.(quote "yeah, cake pops next year too")
Cake pops for a house warming gift. I love the way the ones with the sugar pearls look, but you have to like you cake pops crunch to eat them.
I like how the dark and white play out here. I think it's a nice visual.
