Seeing Megan’s post on her blog about making cupcake pops reminded me that I never blogged about my cupcake pop adventure! A few weeks ago, my roommate and I had a BBQ (with fantastic weather, mind you), so of course I had to bake something for everyone to enjoy! Since I try to set the bar high for my baking adventures (after all, I’m in bakery preparation mode), I decided to try these cupcake pops that I saw over at Bakerella. Oddly enough, the most recent post is about a cupcake pop book, which I will most definitely have to check out! Anyway, onto the cupcake pops.
The steps to make the cupcake pops are actually pretty simple. In my terms, you bake a cake. Then you crumble it. Then you mix all with frosting. Roll it into little cake/frosting balls. Freeze! Shape with flower shaped cutter (mine was for fondant). Dip in melted candy/chocolate. Put in lollipop stick. Top with sprinkles. Have people oo and ahhh over your creation!
See Bakerella for the more extended instructions. Here’s my photo adventure:
The verdict? These were great! They were quite the crowd pleaser too. Most people thought I bought them somewhere, which I believe is a HUGE compliment. Everyone loved them, and even people who generally shy away from cupcakes (“too big” or something) would eat them since they were pretty bite size. Making them was a little time consuming since so many steps were involved, but they were well worth it and I’ll definitely make them again sometime. Give them a try! Sure to impress.
