It's been a while since I have posted something in my blog. Since the start of August, I was busy preparing for my little girl's birthday party. I was actually busy cramming and imagining how to go about the party. As one of the items I'm planning to have on the party, I practiced making cake pops. It was my first time so please bear with me. :P
The first photo is a failed vanilla cupcake that I made. So I thought of recycling it as cake pops. Cheaper than buying a new cake or making a new one, right? :) And since I have stored caramel sauce in the freezer, I saved a lot of time and money.
What you need:
- Cake or cupcakes, crumbled
- any frosting you like
- cake pop sticks
- baking chocolate
- mixing bowl
- any topping you like (I used rice pops cereals and almond slivers)
- Crumble the cake in a bowl. Slowly add half of the frosting. Mix until it comes together and crumbles leave the side of the bowl. Better to use fingers to mix the cake.
- Use a mini scoop to form the balls. Roll with the palm of your hands. Make sure the ball is tight enough not to crumble. Insert the cake pop stick into the middle of the ball. Freeze the cake pops for at least 30 minutes.
- Prepare your things for decorating the cake pops. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or temper in a bowl over boiling water. Use a spatula or wooden spoon and stir continuously until melted completely.
- Remove the cake pops from the freezer and dip into the melted chocolate. Sprinkled with desired toppings. Insert into a styrofoam or a stand to let it dry.
- Once the cake pops are dry, cover with clear bags and seal with pretty little bows. Enjoy!
