Operation: Cake Pops

I got a Babycakes cake pop maker for Christmas.. I was debating weather to keep this or not, because I had rather wanted a donut version.That just popped up red for spell-check. Is that not how you spell donut? Anyway, we decided to give it a try last night.
Cake pops are traditionally make by crumbling cake and mixing in frosting, dipped in candy melts or almond bark . They have been all the rage- trendy and are  cute and creative. Google them. So cute! The kit that I received came with recipes, so we went with vanilla. After a trip to Michael's for foam blocks, candy melts, and New Year's sprinkles, we were ready to go.
We piped (put the batter into a decorating bag) the batter in the pop maker because if we had used a spoon, it would have been an absolute mess. We cook the pops for 6 minutes, then pull them out with an included prong tool. Let me just say that I think the recipe batter was the best batter I've ever had!

The first batch.
"Say blog post!"
The dipping/decorating station
Dip the Lollipop stick in the melted candy melts. (We melted ours in a miniature Crock-Pot) Stick the lollipop stick in the pop and dip the pop in the candy melt. make sure that you get most of the drip off, but naturally , that is hard to do.
Drippings- I thought they were rather unique.
The finished project. Don't worry , this isn't all, some are in the fridge.

Can I have some too?

  3. When we would sprinkle the pops, excess candy melts would drip off. Most likely one we had already sprinkled.
