It is official, I'm obsessed. The first time I saw cake pops on someone's blog I knew I had to make them. I started off pretty simply with the regular, ball shaped pops and then it became my goal to make all different shapes!! The next thing I tried was skull cake pops for Natey's pirate themed 3rd birthday party. They turned out ok, but I couldn't quite get the candy coating right and I bought the wrong food markers. I made them in August for a dinner at the local Ronald McDonald House in the shape of suns, but an unfortunate occurrence with a super hot day resulted in pops melting right off the sticks. There is no need to look at the sad pictures of that one...
Then Bakerella came out with her cake pop cook book and I was sold!! I have decided that I am on a mission, Julie and Julia style, where I will systematically bake and make my way through her cook book! I am not giving myself a time limit since I have many other things keeping me busy, but I will make every last one (maybe not the Hanukkah ones...unless someone really needs me to, just ask!).
With that work-up I give you cake pop attempt number 4, the Cupcake Cake Pop, in all its cutesy glory!!
I'm a crafter stuck in a scientist's body. I cook, sew, make pretty things, do crazy things like run half marathons, work full time, sleep when I can, and clean only when I have to. I can often be seen trying to shove 10 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound bag!
