Not to mention uber diet unfriendly.
Then i saw the cake pop pan on TV! Wha Freakin La!!!
So I went online and ordered two pans. The trick is to go to the page, and then try to leave it and get an extra 15% off, which helps off set the extra "shipping and handling fee" for the second "free" pan. ha. (extra S&H but they come in the same box. Right.) They also came with reusable (ick) pop sticks, individual cellophane wraps w/ twist ties, and decorating squeeze bottles. I'm glad I popped for the extra pan though, each pan makes 18 pops and one cake mix makes just about 36 pops.
Also I wasn't impressed with the "reusable" sticks that came with the pans, yes they are plastic so in theory you could pop them into the dishwasher and reuse, but really why? I can get Wilton pop sticks at Walmart, and frankly they don't really need the sticks. I ran out and found that no one really minded the ones with out sticks, since the chocolate is quite solid it's no worse than picking up a piece of chocolate candy. In fact if I make some for gran #3's birthday in 3 wks, I doubt I will use any sticks, save my daughter the joy of picking up sticky sticks in strange places for days afterward! lol
I've made several batches, the first one was for family and were a big hit. A batch for the last day of work before xmas vacation, and a huge batch of 60 for DH's motorcycle club's xmas party. (yeah never doing that big a batch again lol), and lastly a batch for new years I decided to try and experiment. I put a cherry in the middle of the cake.
Whooo! Were they good! Dark chocolate cake, milk chocolate coating and cream cheese cookie icing drizzled across the top. Everyone liked the pops, but those when almost immediately. Scary Spice wants some of those for her birthday, next Sunday.
OMG she's gonna be 30.
I have a 30 year old child.
I think I need a drink. lol
Are my latest obsession. I've been intrigued for awhile, but the thought of baking a cake, crumbling it, mixing with frosting to make the balls and then coating them in more frosting/chocolate/whatever, just seemed like sweetness overload.
