Besides trying to figure out why someone would hack a baking blog, I made cake pops over the weekend for my cousin’s bridal shower. Long before cake pops were in Starbucks, they were being made by Bakerella, and this past Christmas, my cousin gave me a signed copy of her cook book, Cake Pops, that I lugged with me on my eight-hour bus ride from Chicago to Minneapolis.
To say making this fun treat was a breeze would be a lie, but they were easy enough that I woke up at 8:00 Thursday morning, and they were complete and ready to eat by 6:00 pm. Please remember that this was not all I did that day.
As you can see, I just stuck the pops in a Styrofoam block from the craft store and then decorated it with the paper from the bridal shower invites. Once things were wrapping up, my S-I-L and I packed up the treats as party favors with plastic wrap and raffia ribbon. I even got to share some with friends the following day for a birthday celebration.
If you’re in a time crunch, freeze the cake balls for the 15 minutes – no need to put them in the fridge for half the day.
Plan to fail when dipping at least the first four of your cake balls. Seriously, people will be just as happy to eat them.
You can get all your supplies at the grocery store and on Bakerella’s amazon storefront.
