So, I have finally fallen victim of the inevitable adorableness of cake pops. But I luckily don't have to settle for the ones that have frosting mixed in and have been rolled up with peoples hands...(sorry if I offend anyone, but I just think that's gross...and how can they even taste good?!?) I got this cute little Bella cake pop machine with some of my Christmas money and I can already see how it's going to change me life. ;) They just so cute! And bite-sized, so who can say no?
The machine I have even came with some little recipes for cake pops, which is nice since I don't really want to make 90 at a time... :)
Here's how you do it... Whip up the batter, fill the wells about half full, let them bake for 5 minutes, remove and let cool. Then you melt some chocolate, dip your stick in it and place it into each cake ball. Let cool for about 10 minutes, and then dip in chocolate and sprinkles. Then, viola, you have adorbale, easy and yummy cake pops for all! :) Well, depending on how many you made for all...
I need some work (or help?) on my drying rack...but this got the job done for my first try.
Here's one that I wasn't patient enough with to let it cool and set after putting the stick it in...and it slid down the stick, but you can see just how cake-like the cake part actually it! Yum! :)
