Cake Pops

I first heard of cake pop's while watching Martha Stewart.  Bakerella was making some cake pops on the show.  I had recently taken a cake decorating course that kicked my behind.  I was looking for something that allowed me to decorate without having a wedding cake to eat afterward :)

Cake pops were exactly what I was looking for.  Don't get me wrong, I love cake decorating, but sometimes you just want to make a few treats to share with family and friends without having to make six quarts of icing and rolling out the fondant.  Feel free to take a look at my cake gallery up above.  I put some pictures of my cakes there.

Last week I signed up to make some cake pops for my school's bake sale and they were a huge hit! I made them nice and simple; red with white sprinkles. I also got to use my new cake pop die from My Creative Time!!! I was super excited to use it.

I forgot to take pictures when I had all of them, but luckily I had one left over in my fridge that I could take pictures of!

Make sure to use sturdy cardstock for this die.  I tried using Recollections but it wasn't strong enough.  I switched to SU! cardstock. If you have a Big Shot, you can cut out FOUR of these from a single sheet of paper!

The little bags, ribbon, and sticks are from Michael's.  You can find all these items in the baking isle.
