This weeks story is one of tragedy AND success. I love Bakerella (http://www.bakerella.com/). I have been a fan of her Cake Pops for a long time. I finally tried to do it myself… and here is what happened:
Its not all beautiful and perfectly round like hers… but it was my first time! Unfortunately this used up most of my blue sugar so I decided to back up, re-evaluate, and start again. The cake balls were already made, they just needed their coating. Since I love to grind up chocolate chips and roll my cupcakes in them, I decided the best move would be to remove the sticks and make them “Cake Ball Truffles”:
They turned out well and I’ll definitely try again! Here’s my take on this, DON’T try to do this when you have a deadline! If you are planning these for someones birthday or a specific occasion- do a practice round first! Its all about technique! I like them and I think the second round will be better! To see how they are done:
I used a yellow cake mix and chocolate frosting and then dipped them in melted dark chocolate and ground up chocolate chips. Learning lesson!!!!
