cake pop attempt numero uno.

i decided to attempt cake pops.

here's what you do, according to bakerella... the woman who sort of invented the cake pop!

step one: bake a cake. i just did a box cake mix because it was easy. strawberry kind.

step two: crumb the cake, mix with frosting, make cake balls.
hey, be mature. you can say cake balls and not giggle.

step 3: prepare the rest of the ingredients.
this is where things went downhill...

step 4: dip the end of the stick in chocolate and stick it in the cakeballs, then refrigerate for a while.

step 5: where it fell apart. you're supposed to do the double boil method, melt the chocolate, and dip the cake balls in the chocolate and then in the sprinkles.

but. they were too heavy. or maybe didn't have enough frosting in the cake ball. or maybe the stick wasn't far enough in.
(so many that's what she said jokes exist in here. it's okay. you can say it.)

nonetheless. 5 of them completely fell apart. and the ones that worked, i couldn't fully dip or they would have fallen apart. so, another try is in order. when i get time. i will conquer these!

i'll keep you updated. it is a battle.

  1. an uphill battle indeed.
    i can only imagine you trying to do all of those things at once (melting, covering and sprinkling) especially once they all fell apart...having witnessed you making caramel apples in the past i have some idea of how that went down.
    if you can cone a cupcake you can make a cake ball. i believe in you.


Thanks for commenting! I love getting feedback :)
