“caketastrophie” averted

Have you heard of Bakerella? If you haven’t, make sure you have some free time before you click on her site. Trust me, you’ll be there awhile.

Anyway, she’s made a name for herself by making Cake Pops. I can’t even express how cute these things are. Here’s a picture of some “Spring Chicken” Pops that would be perfect for Easter.

Are you kidding me?

Anyway… we had “game night” here on Saturday and I had baked a cake for dessert. Lisa’s birthday is this week, as is Haley’s boyfriend, Joe, so I had plans to decorate it all cute to celebrate.

Well, Saturday afternoon I get started on decorating and the top layer of the cake fell apart. I started freaking out at first because… hello?! People coming over in a few hours. I started trying to figure out how to salvage the cake when Bakerella’s Cake Pops came to mind.

Thankfully several months ago I had purchased the supplies to make the pops, but had never done it. So, I turned to the trusty internet to find out how it was done. This video on YouTube came in very handy.

Chris & Jboy got in on the act & with their help we were able to whip up some Cake Pops. I use the term “whip up” loosely here because it was kind of time consuming. Though, I think had I been able to plan a little better it wouldn’t have been so stressful.

Here is our finished product:

All in all I think they turned out really cute. Everyone seemed to really like them & said they tasted good. {For some reason the thought of actually eating a cake pop does not appeal to me, so I didn’t partake.}

I’d love to make these again sometime when I can plan ahead & put more thought into it.

Have you ever made Cake Pops before?

I have a friend who is in the dessert profession. She makes some of the coolest cake pops I've ever seen! I did my research, watched numerous videos, and tried my hand at them too for the Super Bowl. Not only were they not as perfect as I had pictured, but the texture was just too strange for me. I will enjoy them from a far and not waste my time making anymore :) But aren't they cute!?
