Cake Pops for the New Year!
These looked cute when I saw them on My Charming Kids. I decided to try them.
I'm positive there is some kind of trick I'm missing, but these were almost as big of pain as those stained glass cookies were. They taste good from what others have told me, but they took forever to make!
I'm not going to give you the whole "how to" because you can find it on Bakerella, but I'll give you the gist of it:
The inside of chocolate cake mixed with cream cheese frosting.
The outside is melted and colored white chocolate.
...the outside is where the issue came in for me because we weren't really able to "dip" them in the melted chocolate :( It could have been the type of chocolate we used, and probably was, but out of 60 rolled cake balls, only about 30 made it off the pan, was iced, and made it to the styrofoam block.
But, it was worth it, because they are adorable. And, as my grandmother points out, "If it's weird, you will find it and make it."
Next baking adventure? Rainbow cake. To happen after the next pay day. ;)
