Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and it occurred to me that (1) some guys really like to cook and (2) some guys really want to impress their significant other, and (3) MANY guys need a Valentine's Day gift, and CAKE POPS is the answer for a bunch of those guys. And it turns out that they're not all that hard to make.
Seriously. If I can make them, anyone can.
All you need is the ability to bake a cake from a box mix and a tub of icing, plus some candy coating pieces from the craft store, and you can make cake balls. Add to that some popsicle sticks and the occasional sprinkle, and you can make cake pops. Like these:
See? If I can do it, so can you!
There are a host of shapes in the book, from owls to ghosts to space aliens. From cupcakes to baby ducks to cows. From mummies to robots to ice cream cones. An enterprising guy is sure to find the perfect confection, and - as I've already stated - it's not all that difficult to manage, whether you're looking to impress someone for Valentine's Day or some other occasion. And the resulting product - a cake covered in candy - turns out to be more delicious than either cake or candy alone.
Well . . . what are you waiting for?
