Cupcake Pops

I have been wanting to try these since the very moment I saw them on Bakerella's blog. . . and there were step by step instructions! How easy, right?

Yeah. . . it's true. . . none of the steps were hard. At all. . . but it's definitely something that takes some practice. They tasted great! but they weren't as pretty as hers, that's for sure. . .

Yellow cake and 1 can of cream cheese frosting. . . WAY gooier than I expected. Her tip to rinse your hands every couple of balls is a really good idea. Makes it MUCH easier.

I skipped a few steps in the picture taking. . . this is after we formed the balls, froze them, and used the cookie cutter to shape the bottom. . . and then dipped the bottom half in chocolate and added sticks.


We had to be a little bit tricky after we finished dipping. . . Being the brilliant person that I am, I forgot to get a block of foam. . . This worked, but it was precarious. So, I made Emily do it.

All bagged up.

They went back in the freezer where they stayed until it was time to eat them. They were really yummy cold.

I think next time we'll do plain old balls rather than shaping them. . . that was the part that took forever. . . but it was fun, and I really liked the way they turned out.

And they are especially yummy to eat if you like to eat cake batter. . .

I think I'm going to try these for my family in CA- but maybe without the sticks? I don't know...I need to simplify the recipe somehow...

But they were seriously so good.
