The Infamous Cake Pops...

Here is a cake pop I salvaged from work. I am not a great photgrapher, but hopefully you get the point!!

I found the recipe on Bakerella's blog. They took 3 days for me to make, but I did them in steps, so it's not like I spent a lot of time each day on them. First you bake the cake (per box), let it cool. The next day you mash up the cake with some cream cheese frosting. I stuck it in the fridge for a bit and then rolled them into balls. I then left them in the freezer overnight. I would then take a few out of the freezer, stick a lolipop stick in them, dip them in the almond bark, and set them up to dry. They turned out pretty good, and then I decopaged (sp?) a green plant foam thingermajigger (not sure what they are called, but you probably know what I am talking about...) with Valentine's Day tissue paper and stuck the cake pops in that. Here is the cake pop I kept to take a picture of...

I dipped it in almond bark colored pink. I tried candy melts, but I seem to be a little "candy melt" deficient, because it did not work for me. The almond bark was thinner and was easier (for me) to use.

The delicious center of the cake pop...

These are super good, and not too hard to make (reiterating that I made them)... They looked really cute all put together on the thingy... And you don't have to put them on the sticks, you can make them in all different shapes, and different cake mixes too! And they are YUMMY!!
