Cake Pops

Seems like everyone lately is talking about Cake Pops. Must be the new trendy dessert for stay at home moms. Like chocolate chip cookies were when I was a kid. I remember many fun evenings licking the beaters of the hand mixer while my father, the scientist, tried different variations of baking soda to make the cookie rise just right. That was back when raw egg wasn’t taboo.

So of course, you know me, I had to try the new dessert of the moment.

Other recipes on the web said just cook the cake, mix in some frosting, roll it into little balls then stick them on a stick, melt some dipping chocolate and dip them in and add any topping you like. Easy, right?

Dipping the Pops in Sprinkles

Not really actually. I’m not sure what I did wrong but the balls kept breaking apart during the dipping process, it was impossible to spread topping evenly, and the topping stuck to the sprinkle bowl.

In the end they looked nothing like the gorgeous ones I saw on the internet…

Ben ate them up, but his eating habits resemble a hoover. Jack wouldn’t touch them after the first one he ate. Next time I think I’ll stick with what I know – chocolate chip cookies.
