So Spring and Easter is all about rebirth, right. Well, I decided to allow the bakist (is that even a word) inside of me be reborn….ok so it was never born, so I could say birth to the bakist inside of me. So I saw these Cake Pops on Bakerella. Ok, so I’m not so sure why I haven’t seen her site before, and furthermore, not so sure why I haven’t seen this glorious CAKE POP recipe. Oh I have to add that she randomly got chosen to be on Martha Stewart to make this very recipe. She was also featured making them into cupcake pops here on an amazing site called the Pioneer Woman. So I went to town on the cake pops.
I love food that you can decorate, it’s kinda like crafting. The recipe is here… CAKE POPS But really all you do is bake a regular cake…..yellow, cherry chip (shown here), chocolate, confetti, whatever floats your boat, and bake it….then let it cool, then crumble into pieces. Then you get cream cheese fosting (3/4 of a better crocker can) and mix it with the crumbled up cake mix, then roll it into balls, are ya still with me…and then put them in the fridge or freezer until firm (not rock hard). I was trying to be festive and made egg shapes….it’s so easy, I’m telling you.
The boys even helped me in between popping them in their mouths
Ok so after they are firm, you get this chocolate. I used the vanilla chips (as shown) and the chocolate chips (same shape) that I got at Orson Gigi (Salt Lake City), oh and some sprinkles.
Oh and some long sticks as shown above. Yes I was so excited that I pretty much ravaged that package open, please don’t be offended. After they are firm and after you heat up the chocolate in the microwave according to the package directions…by the way I love that you don’t have to use a double broiler……then you dip each ball, or egg, into the mixture then put the stick in. Then dip the other half, or really the whole thing.
Then you let them harden. I LOVE anything you can be creative with, and add variation to. Apparently I like the pink sprinkles. My favorite were the little pink ball sprinkles, I thought they looked fancy and unfrumpy momish cause who wants to be like that??
These would be fun for the birthday party or any party for that matter.
Here’s the pink ball sprinkle cake pop. Everyone I gave them to thought they were marshmallows or something else inside………oh no, it’s cake, it’s what?, it’s cake, but how?, just ENJOY and stop asking questions.
Hope you can try these soon.
On a more serious and even more joyful note, I am so grateful that Heavenly Father sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for me and that He was resurrected. He lives and guides us today. Have a joyous and reflective HAPPY EASTER weekend!!!!!
