I'd never even heard of a cake pop until Starbucks started carrying them. Now I can't get enough of them.
I got a wild hair and decided to make some. I envisioned falling in love with the process and serving them to my friends so they love them (and me) right back. I could almost hear, "You should quit your job and make these full time!" But alas, this is me we're talking about and the dream has all but died.
I got some cool photos, even though I spaced documenting the first few steps.
I used this recipe from Bakerella who wrote a whole cake pop cookbook. Before I go any further, let me clarify the difference between cake pops and cake balls: cake pops have a stick; cake balls do not. I made both.
|And then BAM! Solid chocolate with a side of hysterical crying.|
|Aren't they cute?|
What the recipe doesn't tell you is that these are really time-consuming. Trying to dip cake into melted chocolate is really tedious, especially when you have a teething toddler literally clawing your legs for attention. I can't see turning this into my full-time dream career anytime soon...at least until L.E. is old enough to make herself useful and help with the dipping.
