A little bit of heaven on a stick. Chocolate encased in chocolate. Just a few ways to describe those little delights called cake pops. Remember this post about holiday inspired cake pops? Remember how excited I was about showing you the result and didn’t show you the process? Well now it is time for the process and many salivating pictures.
The past few weeks have seemed to need a lot of cake pops. Many special occasions happened and cake pops were needed at all. No, no one requested it. I just thought it was needed. But let’s start at the very beginning (it’s a very good place to start…ahh The Sound of Music). First, just bake a sheet cake just like it says on the box.
Mmm, don’t you want to eat it right now? NO! Don’t do it. We will make it even better but first it has to get a little messy. It is time to grab a fork and fork up that cake until it is a pile of fluffy crumbs.
The finished product should not be too wet but malleable enough to form into balls. Putting the whole can of frosting in usually works – never more but sometimes less.
Now it is time to round it into about 1 inch balls. Once those are done, make sure to give them time to firm up in the refrigerator. Since it takes so long to get to this point I usually make these before one day and then finish up the fun, decorating part.
So these might have been a fail. Look at the green on green. I wrote “Info” and “Sys” on two cake pops and then I tried to draw a phone and computer on the two in the middle. Bet you couldn’t tell what those pictures are without me telling you!
Next event: another friend getting a new job! Does this mean the economy is turning around?! I surprised her with her own special cake pops!
Tried to get artsy to make up for the yellow cake pops in my yellow tinted kitchen when taking pictures at night, meaning no natural light to offset the yellow. Don’t know if it worked except to show the drips!
Final occasion, a cookout to celebrate spring. So I thought I would keep them simple and colorful!
