what else kept us busy tonight...

Here are the guys getting ready to help out with an experiment chocolate.
I've been reading about cake pops (bakerella) online and at the library and thought
we'd give it a try tonight... so first... we made a cake... white - no yokes...

And here is the yummy cake baking in the oven

So then...  and I know how stupid this is going to sound - you bust the crap
out of your cake after it has cooled completely... then you mix the cake crumble with a 1/2 a can of frosting

Ok - so you mix that up and then you form balls - now mine were about a tablespoon each and that was wayyyyyy too much - it could be half that and be quite enjoyable at that size... but this being an experiment - I didn't know any better.... so they stay in the freeze for about 15-20 minutes to really cool off

So then I dipped each one in chocolate - I really wanted to do white chocolate but didn't have enough 
then I topped each one with a tree

And this is a half eaten one - I actually couldn't stomach much more because they are super sweet and it is midnight and that was enough... I'll definitely make them again - half the size and likely with a chocolate cake... maybe tomorrow nights adventure... 

Good night my loves! love and kisses to you!

Apparently, this is a popular thing these days as I had a student tell me that they were what I should make for the class (like I'm going to have time to bake for them!)

I didn't know what they were, and now I do! Thank you!

Thanks, Jen.

I'm going to try and make some more this weekend and we'll share the results :)
