Cake Pops

Though my daughter and I love to watch Cupcake Wars, I have to admit I’m not a big fan of the paper wrapped treats.  And having a six-year-old means many encounters with cupcakes.  So when I happened across this book while browsing at the bookstore I was completely taken in.  I am probably one of the few people who discovered the book before the blog (which is perfectly wonderful—check it out here), but that hardly matters to a bunch of kids ingesting sugary treats.  Here’s a photo of my first attempt at cake pops, for my daughter’s birthday.

She wanted cheerful yellow pops so we modeled them after her smiley bouncy ball.  Some of them look pretty wonky but it was fun to make them and to eat them.  I’m looking forward to making another batch—maybe skulls for Dia de Los Muertos…

    I just bought the book myself. I plan to make the cupcake balsl today for a work BBQ tomorrow. i am excited. When I have the time, I love to do these things. By the way, your cake pops look AMAZING!!! Makes me think that I can do it too! Take care, Joanna.

    • Thanks, Cristina 🙂 Starting with the cake balls is probably best because working with the sticks was a bit tricky, but really–how can you not have fun doing something like this? Enjoy!
