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).
