Even the name sounds totally ridiculous. Cakepops are one of those things that I just could not understand. They have a very large presence on pinterest. And they look very nice in all the pictures. But at the same time they just look kind of ridiculous. And why did they just have to become so popular. And who invented the name cakepop?
Well, the other day I went to a well-known coffee shop, and there was a cakepop just sitting on a plate. Greg ordered 'that thing on the stick' for me, and that was when my view totally changed.
Cakepops are delicious!
They are way more delicious than regular cake. Or cupcakes. Or any other variation on cake.
So I had to make them! I followed the instructions that came with that pinterest pin with the beautiful pictures. The first one just plopped right down the stick, like this.
Making cakepops was kind of a frustratingly particular task. And yet, the outcome was worth the pain. After making about 30 duds I managed to make some that were somewhat presentable.
I even made a special one with a star (see it in the photo!) for Julie! And I didn't take a photo, but after these I ran into the backyard and got four blueberries and stuck them on the top of cakepops.
Oh cakepops... what a strangely magnificent invention.
