For those not fluent in Bakerella, this is the cake pop:
Bakerella is a Cake Pop Goddess. Visit her site and see her stuff (such as this picture, which is hers, not mine, all hers). She has created an art form out of box cake and frosting.
I am no Bakerella.
I am however the daughter of a highly experimental chef and would like to point out that mere hours before I had created an unbelievable off the cuff dish containing chicken, buffalo sauce, and all manner of fresh vegetables held together with biscuits.
But I am no Bakerella.
My first foray into cake pops produced a messy kitchen and lots of swearing but cake pops nonetheless.
My second attempt however, oh dear.
I didn't like using the sticks last time and didn't want to buy the Bakerella recommended cupcake candy moulds this time. I opted for paper cases. I figured if I pushed them tightly enough together they would hold shape right?
That proved wrong very quickly.
So I figured I'd just do cake balls. They went okay. But after just a few I ran out of my yellow chocolate.
No problem. I had made two batches of pops so I had two batches of chocolate. I was going to make some white chocolate pink with some red dye. But my red dye had expired. So I used fondant. Purple Fondant.
I'm a contractor - I made concrete - I made purple chocolate fondant concrete.
Husby got back from the grocery store in the middle of all this and was promptly sent back to pick up a cake that will now be my offering at the Church Baby Shower tomorrow. No cake pop explosion for us.
Help me Bakerella Kenobi - you're my only hope!
