I threw a party for a friend over the summer and tried making cake lolipops.  I used a brownie mix and they came out very cute.  After I made the mixture, i formed them into balls and froze them til they got hard.  I then melted chocolate, dipped the lolipop stick into the chocolate and then stuck that into the brownie ball.  I then dripped the ball into the chocolate and then into sprinkles.  While most of them came out good, some of them kept falling apart when i was trying to dip them into the chocolate.

 

A few months ago, I came across a cookbook that showed me how to make the balls.  After you make any cake you want, crumble it up into a bowl and add about 1 cup store bought frosting.  Like make a chocolate cake and mix it with chocolate frosting or whatever your taste is.  after you make this cake paste, roll them into balls and freeze.  this helps them keep their shape.  the frosting is like the glue.  then you follow the same directions as above.  dipping the stick into chocolate and then into the ball and then dipping the ball into chocolate and then any coating you wish.

There is this wonderful website called http://www.bakerella.com/ that has fabulous cake pops and many more ideas!

I just had an idea i saw on this site.  there is an image of  a cake pop in the shape of an apple, with a pretzel stem and fondant leaf. How cute would it be to give these as rosh Hashana treats.  you can either give a few wrapped with a bow to teachers or serve them at your meal.  kids would love this.  Not sure yet how to make red pareve chocolate.  I know the candy melts at the craft store are great, but they are dairy.

Even google has gotten on the bandwagon of cake pops.  Here is a link to the  picture of Android cake pops made by Parisa Tabriz at Google. Parisa is a software engineer in the Security Team at Google.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/asirap/5587616013/lightbox/

    I have to say, while looking through hundreds of blogs daily, the theme of this blog is different (for all the proper reasons). It’s significantly better compared to the themes I use for some of my blogs.
