Sweets for the Sweet

March 24th, 2009 by Cobwebs

Cake PopBakerella is famous for her cake pops: You crumble up a sheet cake, mix it with a can of frosting, form the resulting “clay” into balls, and dip them in chocolate.

She recently did a whole set of Halloween-themed pops, including skulls, bats, ghosts, and spiders. Her posts includes a “parts list,” and while she doesn’t give instructions for decorating individual pops her photos are clear enough that it’s fairly easy to figure out what you should be doing.

These would be wonderful for a party; the base pops freeze well so you could make them ahead of time, and if you set up an assembly line you could turn out lots of these in very short order. (Best of all, you get to eat your mistakes.)

She inexplicably omits vampires and zombies from her lineup, but either one would be fairly easy to do. It’d be fun to put together a themed set of pops: Classic movie monsters (Mummy, Dracula, Wolfman), Frankenstein and his Bride, Harry and Hermione, or whatever strikes your fancy.

    Oh my gosh! My teeth are hurting just thinking about how sweet those are!

    I bet they taste wonderful though.

    I’m sure dentists love them too. :P

    Someday, I’m going to buy that Danse Macabre quilt from you. Maybe in the fall if we’re financially able to redo the basement so I can have a reasonably sized office/craft room for myself!

    You showed me the cake pops and I’ve never made them. I need to. Thank you for the reminder

    Oh my gosh, my friend just bought the book, made some over the weekend, and gave me one.

    Not as sweet as I thought, which is good.

    I was going to wait for the holidays to buy them, but after tasting one, I cannot wait!
