Poptastic Birthday Cake Pops

1 February 2012 § 7 Comments

It has been a bit busy around here with the Ladies celebrating the fifth birthday last week. As if two dozen cowgirls yeehawing and galloping around the house would not be exciting enough I decided to try my hand at cake pops instead of goody bags.

I will be honest, cake pops are a bit more work than I thought they would be, but they don’t have to be. There are some shortcuts you could take such as using boxed cake mix or store-bought frosting but I was up for the challenge of making them from scratch.

The recipe is on my column What’s for Dinner? on Barista Kids. However I’m not suggesting you have them just for dinner, although breakfast is a different matter.

But to summarize with pictures, it all starts with a perfectly good chocolate cake (recipe here)…

…that then gets crumbled up.

And mushed together with frosting (or icing) to shape into these balls on sticks…

Then dipped in chocolate and whatever else you like to make these, glittery balls of fun.

Or even these….

They went down well with the crazy herd of cowgirls. I caught a few cowgirls red-handed. They were tucking into them before the party was over, trying to hide the sticks….but who can blame them?

Cowgirls parties are definitely a lot more fun than princess parties.
