Shortly before Christmas, when I thought my shopping was complete, I was visiting the Bake at 350 blog and read a post featuring this cake pop set.
I knew that my granddaughter "needed" one -- and, truth be told, I wanted to play with it, too! So, I got online and found one at our Toys R Us. I ordered it for store pickup and stopped by on my way to work early the next morning. The day after Christmas, we baked a cake mix and got busy making the pops. Here is Eleanor, in her cupcake PJs, shaping the balls of cake mixed with icing.
The set comes with everything you need -- the tray for chilling the cake balls before shaping them, the little molds in four shapes, and the mixing and dipping bowls.
I failed to get photos of the dipping stage, but here are the finished snowmen faces and Christmas trees.
The set also comes with a tray with little holes for holding the pops while the candy coating dries -- very handy!
I think Miss E had as much fun making them as I did!
You've heard of The Young and the Restless? And The Bold and the Beautiful? Well, the story of my life would have to be called The Dull and the Dutiful. No one would buy my autobiography, as I had a happy childhood, married a terrific man, and have two brilliant and delightful adult children and three adorable (and brilliant) grandchildren. Oh, and I have a great job at a university.
