Flirty 'Lil Cake Pops

Valentine's Day is sneaking up on us, isn't it now?
 Well, Beau and I never really do anything too exciting for this Hallmark holiday... but I figured this year we should.  If it's going to be a holiday, why don't we get all mushy and celebrate it anyways?  I keep reminding him to make a reservation the weekend before Valentines at this neat little restaurant in downtown Pensacola.  Every one raves about it.  However I'm always skeptical about restaurants... and rightly so... I'm just a better cook!  Not to toot my own horn or anything...
 So... let's get back on track and talk about these cute little sugary cuties.  I designed these cake pops for the Cake Pop Class I taught at Hobby Lobby this past Saturday.
 Yes!  You read it correctly!  I taught my own class!  My wonderful Wilton instructor, Esther, asked me if I'd like to teach a class and of course I said yes!  I had nine students and everyone did wonderfully.  I love seeing all the different creativity.  And of course a few of their cake balls fell off the stick... but I remember my first time making them a year ago and I can absolutely say all the students did better than I for their first time!
 I wrote out a three pages worth of directions and FAQ and brought these cute little Valentine-themed pops for display.  (And now they're in my freezer and slowly making their way into my tummy...) 
Oh and FYI these pops that I made for display are my homemade GF Chocolate Fudge Cake mixed with store-bought chocolate buttercream.  Mmm, so good.
Luckily I managed to sneak in this Pops Class.  Now that Wilton has created its own Cake Pop Class, only Wilton instructors can teach it.  But hey, it was great experience for me and I could always teach it from home.... :)

















I'm topsy turvy tuesdays

    1. Thanks Sue! Well it honestly took me a good year to get where I am with cake pops... I remember crying the first time I made them because they came out so badly lol! One thing to always remember is that they always taste yummy regardless of the look! :)
