If you've been around baking blogs at all, you are sure to recognize the cake pop made oh so popular by Bakerella and her inspiring baking website. I have to admit that the first time I read the process of crumbling the cake all up and then mixing frosting into it I thought "huh?" But these ultra cute cake pops just kept popping up all over the blogsphere and it was hard to resist their charm. That being said, I still wasn't quick to pick up her Cake Pops book despite the fact that everything in it was so cute, you couldn't turn your eyes away. I have a cupcake book with quite possibly the cutest cupcake ideas ever, and still I can't find the motivation to make corn on the cob, or bunny tail cupcakes. And quite frankly, cake pops seemed like a whole lot of work. I try to avoid individually sized food of any kind.
My sister was evil though and picked up the book and we've been hooked all weekend. As in we keep making batches hooked or we don't even eat them but we still keep making them hooked. Have to admit it's a pretty fun activity when you are making them with someone else.
I won't explain the process since it's really Bakerella's to share--jump over to her site to see instructions.
AND the cuteness only gets better--we have the CUTEST of the cake pops coming up in a future post. Don't want to ruin the surprise, but I will say that Brooklyn is awfully cute, and cake pops are also awfully cute as well.
