Cupcake Pops

April 24, 2009

I tried my hand at Bakerella’s Cupcake Pops!  Oh my they are so fun.  I’ve made three batches during this week’s birthday extravaganza (for dd’s school, church and party).  I am NOT going to explain how to do this – Bakerella does a great job of that here and there’s also a video of her making them on Martha!!!  I’ll include a few things I’ve learned – after the pics.  Here are a few pics of mine:

You can click on the pics to enlarge them.   The bear ones (made for a Build-a-Bear party) – the actual cupcake shape didn’t turn out that great – I used the cookie cutter that Bakerella likes best from Williams Sonoma – but somehow – the shape didn’t work for me.

The one that did work was from a bento set that my sister bought me – small flower cookie cutter.  I gave the bears lips from some Valentine’s sprinkles and tiara’s from new Disney Princess sprinkles I found at Kroger’s.

In a few pics there are M&M’s for the “cherry” on top.  The others – with blue and pink are yogo’s.  We found making chocolate cake and using chocolate frosting tasted the best.  I used about 3/4 of a thing of frosting – so that the cake didn’t get too sticky (and tasted really good).

This isn’t the best pic – I’ll find a better one later – but I had to put something up as we’ve been quiet way too long.  I found this table on Craigslist for $50 – and it includes TWO LEAVES!  It’s a gorgeous gorgeous find and goes perfect in my jadeite green kitchen.  Now if only Kitchenaid would let me exchange my white mixer for a PINK one.
