Thank you card #1 – cake pops

Last year I did my best say thanks on line for all the gifts we got for christmas and I’m going to try again this year.  Today we had my youngest cousins over to play with my kids (while I puked my brains out and slept but lets not dwell on that) and we opened up and used the gift they gave us – a cake pop set.  I’ve had my eye on these for a while, I’ve made them the slow way and this fast way is appealing.  Its a special pan that you fill the bottom half and then clip on the top half of the ball and as it cooks the ‘muffin top’ forms the top half of the ball.  It worked pretty well and makes a more airy cake pop then what I make.

Bottom line, all the kids loved making them and then eating them and the total time was about 2 hours and that includes mixing, cooking, chilling, and decorating.  I don’t think I’ll use the plastic sticks every time but they are not the important thing in the set.
