Holiday Baking Shenanigans

Well I’ve been a busy little elf this holiday season! I’ve recently discovered the fun that is making Cake Pops. Have you seen these? Using a handy little baking machine like a waffle iron, you can turn ordinary cake mixes into wonderful holiday (or any festive occasion) treats!

Thanks to my friend jeandayfriday, a new world of culinary delights awaits.

Here’s a bit of our handiwork as we made cake pops for her sons’ classes:


Babycakes Cake Pop Maker. BEST. INVENTION. EVER. EVER!!!!!!! It plugs in similar to a George Foreman grill, and it cooks a DOZEN cake balls in FOUR MINUTES. It. Is. AMAZING!

Here we are, getting all our supplies in a row! 🙂


And…. six dozen cake balls later… That was just from ONE cake mix! You can get between 5 and 7 dozen cake balls out of a single box of cake mix. Just depends on how you fill the machine.


Now, once you make the cake balls, you coat them in melted chocolate and roll them in sprinkles. Flash freeze them to firm them up, insert a lollipop stick and place in a plastic bag and tie a bow, and voila! You’re done!

This was my favorite cake pop I made. It looks so cute and holiday-ish!


Tons of holiday cake pops for some happy little dudes! Woohoo! 🙂

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all!
