My kiddos love cake pops. I thought of making them for my little ones birthday to surprise her. I didn’t know how much work they were. Angie Dudley of Bakerella was the first one to create these and now many bakeries offer them. There are numerous videos of her showing how to do simple cake pops. I thought it was pretty straight forward and got to work.
They turned out pretty good. My DS was the first one to get home and see them. He was very excited. After he had a bite he said, “Mamma, they are like the ones that we get at Starbucks” I asked him, “Which one do you like better?” **Trick question to any guy**. He slowly said, “I like these ones, coz they are homemade and tastes better”. **Ding ding ding. Correct answer!! I have a ladies man in the making **
As for the birthday girl, when I told her I made them to celebrate her birthday, she first made sure that she is also getting a cake for her party and then hugged me to say “thank you for the cake pops mommy. I love them”. Awww, they made my day!!!
