one of my creative projects this weekend was to make cake pops for izzi's birthday.
i met izzi in california a few years ago from a mutual friend and she just celebrated her 13th birthday!
now you may be asking yourself, what is a cake pop? well, quite a while ago (back when i lived in cali and actually had cable) i saw an episode of martha stewart and she had a gal on the show who goes by bakerella who makes cupcake pops (you can see a portion of the episode here).
i've been wanting to make these for a long time and izzi's birthday was the perfect opportunity! here's how to make the pops...
bake a cake, any flavor
crumble the cake up into very fine pieces
empty one can of frosting into the bowl if crumbled cake
after many failed attempts to cover them completely in melted white chocolate i gave up and put them on a rack and spooned the choc on top and let it slide down.
then i sprinkled them with hot pink sanding sugar
(which was perfect because the colors of the party were black, white and hot pink).
i purchased a foam circle from the dollar store and painted it black, then put a ribbon around it and used stickers to write happy birthday.
