A friend is about to go back to school to Chicago in about a week. She was sad that we didn’t get to make anything while she was here all summer, so I told her to come on over Sunday and we made cake pops together.
I must have gotten lucky the first time I make cake pops, cuz I didn’t have any issues. These were much more difficult but we learned a lot so hopefully next time will be perfect again.
Lesson 1 – I think we put too much frosting in them because it was very wet. They just didn’t harden up enough and kept falling off the sticks. And they are WAY sweeter than last time. Almost too much for me to handle. Almost… 🙂
Lesson 2 – I think some of them were just too big. They started to crack while sitting upright. The smaller ones are okay, so I’ll just have to watch the size next time.
Lesson 3 – Mixing red candy melts with white candy melts does not make pink. I guess we could have just colored the white ones, but we really thought it would turn pink. Oh well.
The purple was fun.. it’s hard to tell here but it was like a neon purple color.
We made a few stars and hearts… they didn’t come out too great, I think they were just too big.
The white candy melts actually have colored dots all in them. SUPER cute.
I have a LOT of different kinds of sprinkles. Super fun. 🙂
The best part about these? I made them with STRAWBERRY cake!!
