Cake Pops, by popular demand

Here is the recipe :o). They are super fun to make with your kiddos! Happy kitchen endeavors.

Cake Pops

1 Standard Recipe for chocolate cake (or 1 box mix)
1 cup (or 1 tub) cream cheese frosting
2 packages Chocolate melting discs (I like Wilton’s brand)
1 package of colored or white candy melting disks (again, Wilton’s)
wax paper
1 package of Lollipop sticks
1 package of treat wrappers
1 spool of ribbon
Plant foam or Styrofoam

Prepare your cake as usual, in a 9”x13” baking pan. Allow the cake to cool completely. Crumble the cake (discarding any hard corners or edges) into a very large mixing bowl, and add in the frosting. Mix the cake and frosting until it has an even consistency, and looks completely brown. Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper (or parchment paper if you prefer). Now make balls out of the cake mixture, and place them on the cookie sheet. Freeze for 1 hour.

Melt the chocolate discs in a safe bowl according to the package directions (and be careful not to overheat!). Place a lollipop stick into the first ball, and dip it in the melted chocolate. You may wait for the excess to drip off, or tap it with a spoon to speed up the process. Stick the cake pop into the Styrofoam to dry. Then you may melt the candy discs, and drizzle with a spoon or squirt bottle to decorate (I use a piping bag and tip, but I realize that’s not standard in every kitchen :o).

When the cake pops are dry, place a treat bag over the top, twist at the bottom, and tie with a little ribbon.

It is important to note that the cake pops will not be strong enough to adhere to the stick if they are not cold enough. If you notice halfway through that they are becoming unstable, you may want to freeze them a little longer before restarting.

Also, they set up best frozen, but aren’t very tasty until they thaw to room temperature.


I'm starting again next month, majoring in human services/management. I haven't really said anything because I've been waiting for everything to go through, and I didn't want to get my hopes up, but it looks like I should be able to finalize the financial aspect in a few days, and then I'll be able to register, and begin on the 19th. Wish me luck!

A Good Glass of Wine...

Today, Riley came home with a behavior referral (normal kid stuff), Grace decided her listening ears were broken, and Asher found his (extremely high pitched) screaming voice... Pair that with watching a kid who sent her infant sister to the ER (and her brother) until 1 am last night, and a daycare kid who pooped on the floor today, and I guess you could say I'm in need of a prayer... and a good glass of wine. I'm going for my favorite tonight: Bartenura Moscato. Did I mention that I had an inspection today? Word.

One that means a ton to me...

We just made a donation that was very significant to us. I've been having doubts about it, but Carl is totally at peace with it. After a couple of days, I checked postsecret (on a day that I usually don't, because I'm a junkie and have to have my fix first thing Sunday morning). I found this:

Now I feel better. I think God is good, and calmed my worries.

Rushed post

So these are from Easter and the San Antonio Zoo...
The first is Asher, staying true to his outfit.... Then Easter outfits, then the BEST APPLE PIE EVER! Ask me for the recipe. Then the San Antonio Zoo. We're doing great overall! Just super busy in the month of April. I have five million post ideas swimming around in my head, and will add a few soon!

Just a little taste...

I have a TON of blogging to do, but right now I need to clean. SO, being that it's Sunday, and postsecret rocks, here is my fave from today's post:

HAPPY EASTER! Check back for Texas, Asher's birthday party pictures and Easter updates!
Here you'll find the everyday musings of life, as I see them, which is probably not the same as you see them... Mother, baker, student, wife and woman, sometimes simultaneously, sometimes in conflict. Enjoy!
