Today is Day #2 of the 30 Days of Creativity, and our inspiration for the day is ice cream!
The first thing I thought of was yet another creation by Bakerella – Ice cream cake pops. I particularly like the spilled cone, and she says that it is simpler to make than the upright ones!
Here’s the basic instructions for cake pops:
- After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
- Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. (I use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. But, be warned, it will get messy. Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so start out by using almost the entire can and add more if you need to.)
- Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
- Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
- Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
- Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
- Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
- Place in a styrofoam block to dry
In this case you wouldn’t need the lollipop sticks, instead just put them in the candy coating and then plop them on some mini cones. Dripping is a good thing in this recipe, so don’t try and be neat about it!
