Cake Pops! The newest trend.
I recently purchased a handy-dandy Cake Pop Maker from Babycakes. These suckers are hard to find! Kohl’s is always out of stock, but I was able to snag one from the manufacturer’s website. And, boy, was it worth my $35!
Here’s what the little machine looks like:
So here’s how you make the balls! (ha, ha!)
I made vanilla cake pops dipped in a lemon frosting glaze. Delicious!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
3. Alternately blend in flour mixture and milk into butter mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
4. Fill each cooking reservoir with bout 1 tablespoon of batter. (I just fill just to the top of the reservoir.)
5. Bake 4 minutes.
6. Cool and glaze.
I dipped the cake pops in a lemon frosting dip. You can dip them in pretty much anything. And then even roll them in sprinkles, nuts, or coconut, etc.
1 container (16 ounces) Lemon Frosting
1/2 cup semi-sweet vanilla chips
1. Mix the frosting and vanilla chips together in a pot on the stove.
2. Keep the heat on low and keep stirring until the chips are completely melted.
- Dip the stick in the glaze and then put the ball on.
- Put the pops in the freezer for 10 minutes.
- Then dip them in the glaze/roll them in topping of your choosing.
- Eat and enjoy!
- If you don’t have your own cake pop maker, you can still make cake pops!
- Bake a regular cake in a pan. Crumble the cake after it has a chance to cool. Dump in a 16 oz. frosting tub and mix it all together with your hands. Continue to glaze the same way!
Sorry there are no pictures of my own cake pops. Next time!
