I've included some visuals and a recipe on how you can create this cute confection yourself. They'd make a great addition to any dessert table, bridal shower or rehearsal dinner. Hey, make plenty and have them as your guest favors. One batch will make about 40-50 pops.
This is your basic cake pop from http://www.cakepopcrush.com/. No frills. Just plain, simple and delicious. It’s a great first project for newbies.
- Make a 13×9 cake. Any flavor you like, just follow the instructions on the box. Let it cool. Crumble the cake and add in 1 can of frosting (or blend 8oz of softened cream cheese, 4 tbls. of butter, 2 cups of powdered sugar, and 1 tbl. of milk together until smooth) and place in the fridge for 15 minutes or until firm.
- After refrigerating, dust off your Playdoh skills and form the mixture into balls. Then place a sucker stick into the top of each cake ball. Pop them into the refrigerator for another quarter hour.
- While waiting, start melting your candy melts.
- After 15 minutes in the fridge, dip and swirl each pop into your candy melt.
Once you’ve got an even coating on the cake pop, place the stick into a Styrofoam block while the candy melt shell hardens.
- Announce to your family and friends that the cake pops are ready. Be prepared to break up fights.
Until next time...WEDologize!
