Mommy's constant helper! Is there anything cuter than a cake mixing preschooler?
How 'bout a beater licking one!
And, quit frankly, it was just a shameless opportunity for me to get my friend Sara to come over with Isabel's best bud, Maggie, and help me trash my kitchen in an all-day attempt to cause our families to go into sugar shock!
I mean, maybe there are better ways ....but I don't know any! Now, before you go getting any ideas, this post is purely fluff. If you want directions on how to really make Cake Pops you will need to check one of the beforementioned (that is, in fact, a word. Who knew!) blogs, 'cause I am no Bakerella, y'all!
I will tell you that it is relatively simple...er....in theory at least! The ingredient list is short: boxed cake mix or mixes, cream cheese frosting, melt-able chocolate or candy coating and lollipop sticks. Sprinkles are optional.
Make a cake....or two, crumble it, mix it with some frosting and then form balls. Could be fun, right? Even small children can help! Unless of course, you are creeped out about small children touching your food or something. Then maybe you should not attempt this activity with small children around. Because I'm telling you, it is a magnet for them!
Something to note....if you use red velvet cake, you will look like you just slaughtered a pig! So if you are grossed out by that, you know, stick with chocolate.
You will be tempted to eat these little morsels of cakeyness. But, you mustn't! They need to be stuck in the freezer for a while to harden up. Then the
messy horror fun really begins! You get to take those balls or cake and dip them in your melted chocolate.
And apply sprinkles as necessary.
