Cake pops

Cake pops

Cake pops are one of the latest trends in dessert culture, which are basically little smushed balls of cake and cream cheese, dipped in chocolate or candy melts. Here I walk you through the steps to make your own cake pops at home with one difference: whilst most of recipes call for a boxed cake mix, I would like to invite you to prepare this recipe with cake leftovers. For instance, this cake pops in the pics were prepared with the leftovers of this chocolate birthday cake, as I had to slice the domed section of the cakes to make a perfect layer cake. I kept the “domes” in the freezer, and used them for this recipe (that is why the dough is a bit brown)

    I was wondering- how long can the cake pops (with the chocolate coating) stay outside of the fridge?

    The 41,000 square foot Cascades Indoor Waterpark was
    THE place to ride out the frigid Friday night, according to our eleven year-old.
    By turning the water into steam you give it that extra cleaning goodness, less scrubbing more heat, steam loosens dirt
    and grime which can then be wiped away easily,
    or with a little elbow grease. So if your main requirement
    of a steam mop is for it’s sanitizing purposes, you will definitely want to look into the Monster Steam
    Mop a little more.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or
    outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
