10 Things I Learned About Cake Pops

So…. Belle wanted cake pops for her latest birthday gathering and being the cake making person I am I attempted them for the 2nd time.  For the record, I’m not a fan of making cake pops!  Here is what I learned:

  1. Whoa… time consuming!!!
  2. It is messy getting the batter into the decorating bag to squeeze the appropriate amount into the spot in the cake pop baker.
  3. It’s rather boring cooking 50+ cake pops at 12 at a time.
  4. Bake, cool, chill, repeat….. over and over and over.
  5. If the pops aren’t chilled properly and the covering melted just so the pops fall off the sticks or stay on crooked.
  6. What a nightmare to decorate 50+ pops.  After the first 12 I handed the rest to the girls and said go for it!
  7. I would rather bake, decorate and assemble a 3 tier wedding cake (like I did last month) then do cake pops again!
  8. Did I mention they are boring, time consuming and messy?
  9. Too much work for 1 little bite!
  10. It’s easier to snack on cake pops as you are making them then a wedding cake!

I’m hoping little miss Alex won’t want cake pops for her birthday in August!
