..but before we get to that.. I´ve been dying to know: HOW ARE YOU GUYS??
For this easy cake pop recipe I used defrosted vanilla cake that I had in the freezer (offcuts from a cake I baked about a month ago). I defrosted the cake in the fridge the night before and on the day I simply took it out of the sealed ziplock bag, threw it into my Kitchen Aid bowl and mixed it with my whick attachment until I had crumbs.
At this stage I added my blueberry preserve (make sure it contains 75% or more blueberries) and the rest of my frosting ingredients.. and the rest as they say was history – cake pop history – 🙂
Some Tips when making Cake Pops:
- add small amounts of frosting at a time to your crumbs to make sure the mixture is not too “wet”
- make sure you don´t put the stick more than half way through the centre part of the cake pop as it might break
- before dipping into the chocolate make sure your cake pops have set completely in the fridge
- make sure the chocolate you use contains cocoa butter
- you can add a few drops of sunflower oil to your melted chocolate if it is too thick
- don´t add the sanding sugar/sprinkles unless all the excess chocolate has dripped off
In my last post – Valentines Day Cupcakes – I showed you guys how to make your own sanding sugar. So in this post I used it to decorate birthday cake pops for a 4 year old girl. What 4 year old would not love sparkly, diamond, pink cake pops for her birthday 🙂 I haven´t been “4” for decades but I still get excited about pink sparkly things.. that part of me has never left me.. and I hope it never does 🙂
That´s it for this weeks post.. you guys know where to find me if you´d like to chat – I´m all over the social media platforms and will love to catchup with you over there!
Happy baking guys!! Make life count.
