Cake Pops

Posted on: August 16, 2010

I made Cake Pops again this weekend.

The turned out pretty sweet (literally and figuratively). I especially like the chocolate covered ones dipped in the rainbow sprinkles. They have such lovely contrast and make me happy when I look at them. These cake pops are made of yellow cake mixed with vanilla frosting. They were super sweet. I’m usually ok with that but after I ate 4 I was reconsidering. I think I will try chocolate next.

I had a really difficult time with the coating at first. I was trying to use regular chocolate and white chocolate baking melts. The white chocolate was not melting well in the microwave so I tried a homemade double boiler. Both chocolates kept separating and just making a mess. I decided to set aside the entire project till I could get to Michaels and buy some Wilton Candy melts. I love using these. They melted perfectly and even though I did not get the consistency quite thin enough they still worked really well on the pops.

I love sprinkles so much!

My SIL sent me an Amazon gift card and I am totally going to buy the Cake Pops book with it.
