Cake Pops Anyone!? {Happy Birthday Babe!}

7/23/2011

Today was Justin's {my wonderful, loving, sweet hubby 2 be} birthday! :) I can't believe he's 24! This is the 4th year I've got to spend this special day with him! The 3 prior birthdays he has received some pretty rad gifts from me if I do say so myself. This year however, only a wedding band... BUT we're getting married, and going on an AMAZING honeymoon in one month so he'll survive! ;)
Even though he's not receiving an extravagant gift from me this year doesn't mean I let his birthday go unnoticed! {I'm not that mean.}

So I decided to spend my morning making CAKE POPS for him! :) I decided it would be fun to document the entire process because they're fun to make and it was my first time making them!

With that said, I decided to make a VLOG as well! :) {Please don't laugh, I know I'm a weirdo that is wearing an apron, (even though there was no need for one) making cake pops from a box mix... I know... I'm 'that' girl.}


 Here's How to make them! :)
Ready to make Cake Pops for my love! :)

Posing for the self timer {don't judge me haha!}

Cake Pops book & Ingredients!

You will need 3 eggs,  a box of cake mix, 1 cup of water and 1/3 cup of oil!

Mix all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, stir/mix for 2 minutes.

Empty cake mix into large baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30-34 minutes.

After cake cools crumble cake back into mixing bowl.


Add icing of your choice to cake crumbles, mix together by hand.

Roll cake into cake balls.

You will need cake pop sticks and sprinklers if you choose to decorate.


Pretty sprinkles :)

Sticks!

Melt candy melts in microwave for 30 seconds,
stir and repeat until all the melts are completely melted.

Add sticks...

Dip cake pops into melted chocolate and let cool!
ENJOY! :)
My first video wouldn't upload :(... so here is the second! {please excuse my hair- It's doing something crazy in the back!} He loved the cake pops and had a great birthday! :)
Thanks for watching! :)
