Cake Pops 2


I lovee making cake pops. I made these for Christmas. I used vanilla flavor red & green melting chocolate, and cocoa flavor melting chocolate. I didn't think people would like these when I brought them to Christmas eve, but they were a hit! It was perfect because everyone was so full from dinner, and they were like the perfect dessert because they were so little.



I have learned a few things making cake pops, and these tips should make them perfect(:

-When you mix the frosting in, use a canned frosting and only 1/2 the can. The canned frosting will make them firm a little better, when I made a homemade frosting, the cake pops just got too mushy.

-Dip frosting on the stick before you attach it to the cake ball, this will make it not fall off when you dip it.

-Freeze the cake pops for at least 2 hours. This made everything soo much easier! The chocolate dried within 3 minutes because they were so cold, and the cake pops never fell off their sticks!

Have a happy new year everyone!!(:

  4. great tips! I have always found that using the whole can like most recipes state makes the cake mushy and gross.
    I will definitely try the half can recipe!

  6. Very festive. I think that these little pops are really difficult to make, would you believe. Mine always fall off the stick and so on.

    Anyway, I want to wish you a Happy New Year! I wish you all the best with your health. Love your body, mind and soul :)
