During this past weekend of cake orders, I did suffer a minor cake-tastrophy when one of my chocolate cakes decided it wasn't quite ready to part with the pan. Yes, it stuck, and I hate it when that happens. So, I had a perfectly good layer of chocolate cake missing part of its backside. What to do? Well, I have a hard time just throwing cake away, so I saved it and decided to give these popular cake pops a try.
I googled around and read a few sites (little did I know just HOW popular these little sugar bombs are!) and decided to go for it. First, I made a small batch of chocolate frosting and mixed (not too much of it) with the crumbled cake. Then I scooped up the cake mixture and rolled it into balls. I took some lollypop sticks and dipped them in some melted white chocolate candy melts and inserted one into each cake ball. Next, I put them in the fridge for an hour or so to harden a bit and then rolled them in melted chocolate (tinted yellow). I sprinkled them with some decorations and stuck 'em into some styrofoam. Voila! Cake pops! After they dried, I grabbed some little bags (yes, I do happen to have all this stuff lying around) and tied them with some ribbon. Trick or Treat!
