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
