Well well well….I got the Cakepop bug! I went over to Bakerella’s site, and I fell in love with her creations. I have been thinking all week about making these pops. I just knew I could do it! CAKE DRAMA!! For some reason it seems harder for me to work with cake mix, than to make items from scratch. I started my weekend by baking a Red Vevlet cake using a box mix. I followed all of the instructions from Bakerella’s site. I placed them in the fridge overnight, and they were still too smooshy to roll in the chocolate. Well I was done, I was so upset! Dried the tears, and started again. This time I went with just yellow cake mix. My taste-tester had to come and help me, with the second round. This time we used less frosting and we did not use a spoon. We put our cake balls in the freezer, this made them sooooo much easier to work with. I also attempted the cupcake pop, I was unable to get the shape using the cookie cutter! If anyone has any tips that would be great! Ugh!
Cake pops Pros & Cons
- Fun, fun to make
- Almond Bark very hard to locate in NJ (Walmart)
- Cake Pops are so cute, and you can use your imagination and go wild!
- Almond Bark super sweet
- Candy Melt does not spread very nice, you have to use a lot and just dip the ball into it
- Cupcake Pop – For me seems very hard to master, I just can’t get the cupcake shape even with the right cookie cuter
My goal, is to continue making these pops and trying to be very creative! No one does it like Bakerella, she is da bomb@ (slang for very good at her craft) lol lol
