While metro Atlanta was battling tornados all evening (and I was in and out of the basement all night), I was making Bakerella's Cake Pops.
And for my first try, I think they turned out oh-so-cute!
Even if I only ended up making 8.
Even if I have 52 frozen cake balls left over.
Even if it took me 3 hours to do it.
So if you'd like to take a sneak peak, I'll show you who showed up for the party:
And every body knows you can't bake without these guys:
Let's get this party started!
Once baked, you've got to crumble your cake (and believe me, I had the hardest time crumbling a perfectly good cake—probably the prettiest I've ever baked. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do):
Mix the crumbled cake with a container of frosting (I chose cream cheese), then roll the mixture into little balls. You'll want to push your sleeves up, because this can get a little messy (... and inconvenient when the tornado siren goes off and you have to run to the basement.)
Next, melt your white chocolate candy melts...
Then let the kids jump into the "pool" for a little swim and magic swirl ...
When you're done, you'll have ... Cake Pops!
