Ever heard about cake pops?? Supposedly, the idea has been circulating out and about the Internet for the past year. I just learned about them. (My kids tell me all the time that I am S-L-O-W . . .) These are pictures that Bakerella has taken of her divine creations. Aren’t these pops just the cat’s meow?
Bakerella has got to be one of the most creative cake pop creators in the universe. She has also made the cutest ever reindeer pops, wedding cake pops, rabbit pops, spring chick pops, turkey pops, and voting pops. Why just this very day in honor of Sesame Street’s 40th anniversary, she has shared her Elmo (and friends) cake pops. Boy howdy! If you made these for a grandchild’s birthday celebration, you’d be his most-est favorite grandma ever. I think I’m going to have to retire right now to spend all of my time (trying) to make these fun cake pops — and then eating them. (I’m sure grandpa would help me out — especially the eating part.)
(We pause here for a commercial break: You’ve got to check out those little gobbling turkey pops. Fun, fun fun!! They would be a hoot to make around Thanksgiving time with your grandchildren. But, they call for the brown version of candy corn. Last year when I was looking for some around Thanksgiving, I had a hard time finding any. So, you might want to start checking out your local stores now so that you will have it on hand for when you need it. We return you now to our regular scheduled program.)
I’m giving our daughter-in-law a baby shower this Saturday and I’m going to attempt the smiley face cake pops. They seem to be fairly simple. Something that I could manage. Wish me luck . . .
Making cake pops would be a delightful activity to do with grandchildren. Wouldn’t it be fun for you and your grandchildren to come up with your own designs that you could make together? Kitchen krafts. What a yummy idea. Even if they didn’t turn out as elegant as Bakerella’s, I’m sure they would still be edible.
Maybe it’s a good thing that the New Year is just around the corner so that I can set a goal of losing all of the weight that I have gained just LOOKING at these cake pops . . .
