Cake Pops

March 20, 2011

I made a quick trip to Bloomington this weekend  to spend the evening with Hannah and Kortney.  I gave Hannah the book Cake Pops for Christmas, and we’ve been trying to find a time to get together to make them.  We finally made it work!

First problem: We started with Funfetti cake, vanilla icing and vanilla candy coating.  After making the first round, we decided they were too vanilla-y, so we hopped on over to Kroger for chocolate candy coating.

Second problem: We didn’t melt enough candy coating for a single “dip” of the pop, so they consequently ended up with a bit more candy coating than we had hoped.

Third problem: We felt as though we added too much icing to the cake, making the balls too moist. We reminded ourselves not to put as much icing in next time.

Result:

James ate this cake pop before I told him of all the problems we had.  I asked if he wanted vanilla or chocolate. “Vanilla. You know I don’t like chocolate that much.” He said the amount of candy on the outside was the perfect amount. He proceeded to tell me he loved how moist the cake was. SCORE! All before I told him those were all of the things we felt we needed to improve upon next time. What a good boyfriend.

    They’re very fun to make! I’d suggest going simple on your first go-round. Let me know how they turn out! :)

    I’ve got an idea, how about you two (Em and Gretchen) both make cake pops and we’ll have a tasting contest the weekend in April! James, this could be good for both of us!
