Baking Attempt

So...yesterday I had the day off from work, and I decided to do some baking for the lovely 4th of July weekend coming up! We aren't sure of our plans yet, but this way, I am prepared. I was looking on Pinterest for some cute ideas, and found this lovely 'Merica cake pops in the shape of a flag!

Patriotic Pops from Bee in Our Bonnet

But...

Those seemed a little too advanced for my cake popping skills. Since I've never made them before, I decided to go for something a bit more simple, and I found these.

4th of July cake pops from Rumbly in My Tumbly

So I decided to give it a try. They are pretty easy to make, and I used this wonderful tutorial from Beach Bum & Baby.

I didn't have a styrofoam block to set them up in, so I just let them dry upside down. Here's how mine turned out!

Overall, they turned out pretty good!

I did have some trouble with them starting to fall off of the stick while I was dipping them in the white chocolate, so I only dipped about half of each one. 
Anyone have any tips on how they will stay on the stick better?

I also need some practice on my "sprinkling" as you can see I didn't spread them out very evenly!




My fun patriotic sprinkles I got.

The final product! I added some ribbon to fancy them up!



If you have any other tips or secrets, please share! I would love to try these again for another holiday and do better the next time!

  4. I have never made cake balls. I always hear they are hard to make(which is why I haven't even attempted yet) but I love yours. They are so cute and look so good.
