Cupcake Pops

Before I really get started on this post, I have to give a couple of shout outs. First of all, to my BFF, Amy, who told me about this blog and then, secondly to Bakerella, who came up with this idea.

A friend from work is having a little boy and I wanted to make something special for her baby shower. I decided to take the plunge and attempt to make cupcake pops from Bakerella. You might have also seen this featured on the Martha Stewart Show.

It was really pretty simple- time consuming, but do-able. And if I can do it, you can do it!!! I made the chocolate cake the night before. I wanted to be sure it had plenty of time to cool down.

Then, I crumbled it and mixed it with the entire can of cream cheese frosting. On her blog, Bakerella gives some tips for successful cake pops, I highly recommend following all of her tips and hints. Visit her site for step by step instructions and lots of really cute ideas!!!

She knows what she’s talking about!

I’m pretty pleased with the results. I think you probably get a little bit better, each time that you make them. And as you can imagine, the possibilities are limitless. Any color combination would be adorable- depending on the occasion or holiday.
It's a bonus that not only do these look adorable, but they are also tasty!!! Jeremy loved them! I only let him eat the one that are ugly! ha ha!

I found this ribbon at Michael's in the dollar ribbon section- they had lots to choose from.

I could resist adding this cute little pic of Win!!!!
