Let's make Cupcake Pops!

Ever since I began following Bakerella's blog a year or more ago I've been meaning to try her Cupcake pops. I thought about it and then I Forgot about it. Then, I saw her make them on the Martha Stewart show and I vowed to get Busy and try them. Then I forgot about them again. But when Bakerella and her Cupcake pops popped up again on my most Favorite blog that I follow, The Pioneer Woman, I decided THAT'S IT! I'm making Bakerella's Cupcake pops Now! So I bought everything I needed and began to lay the plans... Then we went to Ft. Benning to see Brandon and I forgot all about Cupcake pops again.

But when I heard that it was going to Rain all this weekend, I knew the Time had finally come!

Let's make Cupcake Pops!
Man! Red velvet cake is really Red! Who knew?
Still red.
Last night when I told T that I would be baking today he said, Yum, Bundt cake!
So since I didn't feel like Explaining cupcake pops to him, I baked him my plan B...
Here we Go! Next stop... Cupcake Pops!
Doing this to a Perfectly moist and delicious
cake somehow seems a bit strange
But as Strange as it seems, this is the only way to Cupcake pops!
There it is, just like the Recipe instructed... We now have perfect Cake crumbs!
the Best advice the recipe gives is Not to add the whole can of
frosting at one time as you begin to Mix, because I added just over
half the can and then a couple of Spoons more, and that's all I needed
Adding any more and this would be Impossible to roll into balls
See? Perfect cake ball consistency!
the Cake balls are supposed to be 1.25-1.5 inches and Mine are perfect!
I know... After I rolled them I thought they looked like Turds too... but
the Recipe calls them Ovals so that's what I'm going to think from now on!
To See Martha call them Turds go here
sliding the Ovals into the Mini-cutter to form the Cupcake base
I've never Melted chocolate in the Microwave before but anything
to keep from having to Clean three double-boilers and I'm there!
All formed! Now back to the Freezer for 5 or 10
minutes to re-set while I melt some Chocolates
Yum! Now... Where did I lay that spoon?
What a pretty shade of Blue...
and, I'm totally Lovin' the Pink!
Kinda reminds of of coloring Easter eggs! Except this is Chocolate and
this Project has nothing to do with eggs or Easter... It's late, I'm delirious!
Wow! Looks like I'm actually making Cupcake pops now!
We're Rolling now!
If there is one thing I would do differently the Next time it's
that I would dip the Cupcake bottom deeper into the Chocolate
Other that that, I'm pretty darn Pleased with my results! Not sure
I would go to this Effort or expense for just anyone though...
Fortunately, I work with fifty Amazing people worthy of just this
kind of Effort! So I guess it will be a Cupcake-pop Monday at Hanes!
