On Saturday I went to a housewarming brunch for one of my coworkers. The brunch was a potluck and (obviously) I wanted to bring a dessert. But I also wanted to bring a pretty dessert.
BRING ON THE CAKE POPS!
I switched them up and used chocolate cake for the inside:
Those indentations are there because I was making sure the cake was cool…before I did this to it:
There’s something so satisfying about turning the cake into crumbs.
I added chocolate frosting and started making cake balls. The best part was that I downloaded the HBO Go app on our iPad so I could watch Magic Mike!!!
That iPad stand has turned out to be a very good purchase!
I got white chocolate melts (out of the bulk bins) and added a bit of pink food coloring to make the chocolate a soft pink.
After the pink chocolate hardened up, I put a white swirly thing on top.
Not perfect, not fancy, but I like the way the white looks. Here’s the “bouquet” I took to the party:
I had quite a bit of pink chocolate left after making the cake pops, so I make these adorable snacks:
Cute, right?! And you really can’t beat that salty-sweet combination.
