|These pop's are so cute, those poor snow people lost their heads!|
And we are getting close to the end of this super amazing cookie blog hop. I will be sad when it's over.
I wanted to show how to make a seasonal cake pop the easy way. And to me easy means no hand shaping or cookie cutter stuff. See, this is why I have silicon pan molds. Well I have like 20, but hey at least I am finally using one. Carrying on.
First I made the basic cake pop filling using a chocolate cake and chocolate fudge icing. And if I have to remind you that I like to use cake mix, well then you must think highly of me if you think I did scratch. I mean think of it this way, you are going to make this awesome cake and icing and then tear it apart and smoosh it all together, so box mix and canned frosting makes it a little easier to bear.
So I showed you different ways to shape cake balls here. You basically take your cake ball mix, stuff it into the cavities of the mold them chill it until they are firm enough to pop out in one piece. Some of mine had to be put back in the fridge for a bit because they fell apart, no big deal it all worked out.
|See? How easy is that!|

|I sort of feel sorry for this guy, that had to hurt.|
|Dipped and decorated.|
Then you let your little men dry out, and put them in cake pop bags and tie them all up. They really were not much harder than a regular cake pop, and I find I have much less candy melt cracking with flat cake pops. Think it has something to do with the fact the cake ball has room to expand in the back. That is my theory anyway, and I am sticking to it.
