Cake Pops

So there's this amazing person. And her name is Bakerella :) She is certainly one of the most creative people I have seen (online haha). She has this book called Cake Pops, which recently came out, and she is on tour signing. Sadly, I missed the one I was close to :( She has inspired many to get their bake on! I for one cannot WAIT! to get a chance to bake once more. But until my AP US Government class decides to be easy for once, I won't get a chance to get in the kitchen.

Luckily I got the chance to work on some cake pops (my very first! :D) back in September. You can get the recipe on her website if you're curious enough.

So once I made the recipe and followed her simple directions, I proceeded to roll the cake into-- what do you know-- balls. ;) I heated up the chocolate, which took me a couple of tries to get it right.

And then it took me a while to get a good technique going, because I'd start swirling the cake pop and the stick would either dig a hole in it, or go straight through! >.<

I ended up dipping the stick in the chocolate first, then sticking it in the cake ball, putting it in the fridge, then proceeding to finish dipping the delicious cake pop :)

Here's a link to my Flickr Account, these are the rest of the cake pop pics, if you're ever so curious :) ♥

This one is my fav :) ^
