They’re Poppin’ Up All Over!

The Cupcake Pops I made last month on the Martha Stewart Show are a hit. From Oklahoma to England, Bakerellas all over are making their cupcakes pop and making me smile. It’s been really rewarding to see a little idea I tried out in my kitchen pop up all over the nation. So here are a few cake pops and bites that I’ve come across and wanted to share. I think they all did a FANTABULOUS job! And, If you have a minute for some sweet stuff, click on the arrow below.

And here are links to their posts so you can tell them what a great job they did.

I was so excited to see that one of the cupcakes in the state of Arizona was for us! Thanks for taking the time to make the little video, Bakerella – I love seeing everyone’s creations! A few days ago I ordered to candy mold that looks like a reece’s peanut butter cup – can’t wait to make them again – although I thought I’d never say that!

By the way, do I have your permission to translate to spanish your article “make your cupcake pops and cupcake bites” for everyone to understand it properly?

I’ve made these three times already! Once in humidity -(it doesn’t work ;)! Once with the cookie cutter and once in the mold. I love using the candy mold for the bottom! They were a hit with friends and family! Thank you Bakerella for such a great idea!!!

Question…
Once you have made the cake “balls” can you freeze them? Has anyone successfully frozen and defrosted them? HELP! I would like to make these for a large party but they are too time intensive for the day before the party.
Thx!!!!

dana said...

I made these for Mother’s Day & they were a hit! My first test batch was yellow cake. Yummm!

Second batch was for my Weight Watchers devoted mom. These were made using Diet Orange Soda with Orange Cake Mix & 2/3 can of white icing. Topped with a little sliver of Orange Slice Candy. I think they would be really yummy with a chocolate cup bottom.

Thank you for the great treat, Bakerella!

I did your “off the stick” ones, but I have to be honest, you rock, I had a heck of a time making them, way time consuming. Don’t know if I will brave them again, no matter how yummy they are!

Inga said...

I’m so in awe of these litte cupcake pops but my little girl is allergic to milk! Any ideas for a dairy-free candy coating instead of the candy melts since I’ve not found any without milk product?

May 29, 2008 01:40 AM

morgana said...

Inga, maybe you can coat them in royal icing… (just egg whites and sugar, the same you can use in decoracted cookies, it gets hard and you can colour it too) I’ve been thinking about doing it so but didn’t try yet.

I took these to work today for our monthly Friday social and they were, to say the least, a complete sensation. Even the ladies who usually pass up cake and goodies on the table kept coming back for more. I know I’ll get better (and faster) with more practice but I had a blast making these!

I made them too (coconut cake dipped in dark chocolate ganache)-sorry no picture… and took them to teacher appreciation week at the school – they raved…and asked for the recipe (which I printed out from your blog!)

Finally, after much deliberation, it was a hit with my work colleagues, they were asking for more. The only thing is making them in summer time in Fresno, CA, is a challenge, in and out of the freezer, all worth it, when it all nicely packaged.

I made some of these for my daughter’s fifth birthday treats to take to school. They can be found on flickr under retromolar. They turned out so cute. Kelli

I haven’t made the cupcake pops, but I have made the cake balls this summer in Massachusetts. They were delicious!
