I have been wanting to try Bakerella’s cake pops forever. They look so cute and good. So the other night I decided to try and make them. This being my first time making them I was overly optimistic on how long they would take to get done. I started them around 4:30 and thought I was going to be able to make them for YW that night by 7. I was very, very wrong. I was lucky to get them rolled out into balls and in the freezer by 7. When I got home I had to re-roll them to make them look better. By that time it was way to late to finish them so I had to wait until I got home the next night to dip them. This part was hard, I don’t know how Bakerella does it. Hers look so smooth and awesome.
My chocolate melts started to thicken up after the first 3 and then it was all gooey and messy after that. As a result the little cake balls wouldn’t stay on the sticks because the chocolate was too heavy.
So after getting a few to stay on the sticks I decided that was way too much work for just John and I, so I dipped the rest and put them back on the cookie sheet with no stick. Not to mention that I made some of the balls a little too big. Next time I will make smaller sized ones and try to figure out a way to keep the chocolate smooth for longer.
But they really are good, I mean like really good. I have eaten like 10 of the stupid things. So next time I won’t make them unless I have some place to take them so John and I don’t eat them all. But they were fun to make, and I am pretty proud of myself for trying them.
Things I am thankful for today:
I am thankful that I have a day off, and no plans to fill it. I might even stay in my pajamas all day, I haven’t made up my mind yet.
