Made it monday .... cake pops

One of the things I like most about reading blogs is the ideas that you get from other people.

I cant remember who know but someone mentioned cake pops a couple of weeks before our birthday week so I decided to give them a try.

They do look great but they were not the quickest thing to make.

I made a cake, crumbled it, let it cool over night, mixed it with some icing and cream cheese and then rolled it into balls. Stick it on a stick, dip it in melted chocolate, get them to balance upright in the holes I had made in a egg carton and then sprinkle with 100s and 1000s.

So I am not sure I will be making them again as they were very time consuming. I did see some people used crushed Oreo's and cream cheese which eliminates the cooking step. They did look pretty though and U2's work and Goofy's preschool liked them! JJ managed to steal away with some too!

Has anyone else attempted these? Did I just do things the hard way or is there an easier way of creating these?

  1. Oh yes. They sure do look time consuming! I have piles of cake pop recipes on Pinterest I'd like to try, but time. I'd rather make a big cake, and might save the idea of cake pops for cake flops!

    Yours do look gorgeous though ;)
