CAKE POPS!

Today, my friend Chelsea and I decided to attempt to make cake pops for the first time. Although we messed up on a few minor things, we learned what to do differently next time! We decided to make them “Valentines Day” themed since it’s only a couple of weeks away! 

So if you’d like to try and make these tasty treats for your valentine, here’s what you’ll need: 

  • Cake mix of your choice – we used red velvet and vanilla (mixed with sprinkles)
  • The ingredients required on your box of cake mix – eggs, water, oil 
  • Frosting of your choice – we used cream cheese frosting 
  • Dipping chocolate of your choice – we got chocolate and vanilla 
  • Cake pop sticks – we used straws, I wouldn’t reccomend it
  • Sprinkles and any other toppings you can think of 
  • Styrofoam – to stick them in while they dry

 


 

We added these valentine colored sprinkles hoping that it would come out like fun-fetti cake, but thats not quite what happened.
 
 
mixed em in…
 
 
baked the cakes…
 
 
crumbled the cakes into a mixing bowl

 
Now add 1/2 cup of cream cheese frosting 

  

and mix it up!

  
 A happy accident… We just added more sprinkles!

 

roll into balls and jam those sticks in half way.

Place them in the freezer for 30 minutes. 

 

while our first batch was cooling, we strted to make the red velvet mix and repeated the same steps

 
after 30 minutes, dip your pops in your chocolate and start decorating!
  

One of our minor mistakes was that we forgot to buy foam or something of the sort to stick the pops in after dipping and decorating them. We poked holes in a cardboard box instead, it worked but it was sketchy and not pretty. (Which is why I won’t post a picture of it)

Allow them to dry and either eat them or package them up to give to your Valentine! ❤️💕
