A Cake Pop Failure

December 16th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Family Life

I am a cakepop failure.

For the uninitiated, cake pops are suppose to be a little bite of heaven that I first learned about from the lovely and talented bakerella.  They are cake, mixed with icing, dipped in chocolate and stuck on a stick.  I mean what’s not to like about that?

Miss Zoot said they were easy, and popular and that if she could make them anyone could.  She also said they didn’t need a stick and people would love them just made up as cake balls.

Despite what Miss Zoot said.  I am an Epic failure at cake balls.

They actually didn’t look bad.

They simply didn’t taste very good.  The texture was sort of weird.  Kind of reminded me of what sweet Play Dough tastes like but not so grainy.  And it was much more time consuming than I anticipated.  And the chocolate coating I bought at Hobby Lobby was temperamental and got thick and wouldn’t melt.  And the white sugar I thought would look like snow just looked kind of icky.

So.  Back to the drawing board.  I am a cake pop failure.

    Not a failure at all. The texture of them is kind if odd…that’s just how they are. And as far as the coating, you can add crisco to the chocolate when you melt it to make it easier to dip. I think the new baby cakes maker is an interesting alternative to this method, but I’m never going to buy one, so I’ll never know!

    Ack! Thanks for telling me this, I was THINKING of going on line and looking for a recipe on how to make these. I think I’ll just stick with my tried and true cookies now instead. Stupid Christmas. :)

    Glad it’s not just me. I had a friend that made me a bunch a year or so ago and they were tasty, but I tried to make them and they were weird. (Oh, and I’ve just refound your blog, so expect some comments on long-ago posts. Must catch up!)
