Busy Busy ….

So it is my Birthday …. and how did i spend it ?

Well i was asked to make 50 yes 50 Cake Pops – the bane of my life for a christening. I swear this is the last time i make these things. Yes they may look cute and all that but they are so time consuming to make and can make me mad when they fall off the stick when dipping into candy melts. NO MORE !!

25 were Vanilla and 25 Red Velvet


But to make up for this hard work look at the goodies i got for my birthday !

Now i know some may say or think that the Die Cutter is small but honestly for a newbie like me this is perfect, but i have decided to splash out maybe next year if all goes well on a slightly bigger die cutter.



Cake Pops


Cake Pops
Although these look really nice I am finding these are beginning to be a real pain in the backside to make.
I have successfully made these in the pass so when I was asked to make 30 for a baby shower I had no hesitation and was happy to do so.
So I set about making the cake mix, put them into a cake pop mould , baked and cooled down.
So far so good….
I then put the sticks into melted candy melts and inserted into cake pops and popped them into fridge for couple of hours to set
again so far so good …..
Next step was to melt candy melts and cover the cake pops and this is when disaster happened … a few went really well and then some suddenly started to fall off and were ruined. I successfully managed to get 30 cake pops down but had to bin about 20 !
Never again will I make these !
