Well, Zippity Aye and Heido Ho...

Today is my birthday! So in honor of this fabulous day, I thought I'd make you some cakepops! I saw these on Bakerella's blog probably more than a year ago, and I've always wanted to try making them. By the way, Bakerella has come out with a cookbook focused on these fun little morsels. It looks like a good one, and it's on my wishlist!
I wish that I could actually send these to all of you. I've been preparing these goodies to give to some friends that I'm spending the day with~ a great excuse to use my new colorful baker's twine! Yeah! I love baker's twine, and it comes in so many fun colors now.
This is what they look like in the inside. I took a bite of that one piece... I couldn't help myself! It's okay though 'cuz it's my birthday.
All wrapped and ready for gifting! I hope that they will like them...
I made a chocolate covered version also... as you can see, one of these things is not like the others! (Can you hear that Sesame Street tune in your head?) Apparently, it helps to get the cake/frosting/chocolate proportions correct, or this will happen!
Yummmmmm!!! I hope you are all having a fun, fall weekend... I'm off to go celebrate now!
Hugs,

Jill, Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, and a big Happy Birthday to you! My sister-in-law just called me about these cake balls that seem to have taken on a life of their own at her book club. They can't get enough of them! Have a lovely holiday season! Elizabeth

But it's better late than ever to say: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I'm so glad you had a fabulous, cute, delicious birthday with those delightful pops...I would expect nothing less from you, really. I'll bet your friends loved them! :-)

Hi Jill,
Well I tried to make the cake pops. I thought they were made using a mold. After much failure I went back to your blog and linked on to the baking blog you referenced. Well, I just have to say kudos to you because I did not know how much work and time is involved, but that is why yours look so pretty. Have a great weekend. BTW, I ordered the Cake Pop book.
Hugs,

Carey
