30 April 2009 Photo(s): You Can Have Your Cakepop and Eat It Too

A few weeks ago, a friend posted some pictures of cakepops they made. I become obsessed with them and decided I wanted to make them for my annual Hotair Bolloon Festival party. I felt like I needed to to a dry run and our niece's First Communion is this weekend so it seemed like a good excuse to play.

So for several hours tonight I baked, rolled, dipped and decorated these cakepops and I am exhausted. These little treats were originally made by Bakerella. She is much better at these than I am but she has had a lot more practice. You can check out her wares here http://bakerella.blogspot.com/search/label/cupcake%20pops

They take a lot of time and effort but I think the kids will like them. I used red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting for mine...you can see the inside of one of them as Bill needed to be the taste tester. The cupcakes are adorable, the hot air balloon still needs some work and Bill thinks the other one looks like the stress doll you squeeze that has eyes and ears that pop out like these http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/zoom/martian_thing.jpg.
