Cake pops!

So, I'm a big fan of Bakerella and her cake pops!  I try to follow her blog as much as I can, and I borrowed her book from the library a couple months ago.  My 3 year old, "Spice", LOVES the book!  We looked at every page over and over for the entire three weeks we had it.  She'd describe each cake pop and piece of candy she saw.  Here she is (face blurred) in her favorite Thomas pj's with her bedtime story :-)

For Valentine's Day the kids begged me to make some, which I did.  They don't look like Bakerella's, but the girls like them!  Hubby just wanted to eat the whole bowl of cake & frosting with a spoon.  Here are the Valentine's Day ones, I kept them simple for my first attempt..

I decided to get braver and try some that were a little more exciting.  We chose the frogs, since they looked simple enough.  They were harder than they looked, although I think I tend to dip the pops when the chocolate is too hot.  The girls were so excited about how they came out so I decided not to analyze each one for perfection :-)  I remember taking a picture of the pops but for some reason I was only able to find a cell phone pic..

A few of the pops turned out really bad, so I left them on the counter without faces drawn on.  One day I walked into the kitchen and discovered that my 6 year old had helped me out by drawing a mouth on one of them!

If you haven't already, you should definitely check out Bakerella's blog at
