Portion control

The topic of the #dsma chat this week was about carbs, which was a little ironic for me because I had just finished making cake pops with a friend. The dishes were actually still in the sink when I started to tweet.

 
There are roughly a billion recipes for cake pops on the internet so I wont bore you with the details. Instead you can just enjoy the pictures. The cake pops are pretty easy to make; my only advice would be to wait for the “cake balls” to be completely chilled or you will have trouble getting them to stay on the lollipop stick.

1. turning cake balls into cake pops, 2. candy melts for dipping, 3. chilling in fridge, 4. peanut butter cake pop, 5. with sprinkles, 6. blue cake pop with pearls, 7. cake pop dipping, 8. trying to cover evenly, 9. she loves pictures, 10. posing while waiting for the candy to set, 11. cake pop inside, 12. getting fancy, 13. more fancy, 14. finished product, 15. cake pops!

P.S. I believe this counts as a D-Feast Friday post because of course it is healthier to eat a cake pop than an entire piece of cake, right? It’s all about portion control!

P.P.S. I didn’t notice until I set the timestamp for this post that today is April Fool’s Day. I guess I should have posted a CURE joke instead. Oops!

    That looks like a great way to keep portion control in mind, I could stick to one with how pretty they look 🙂

    I tried again today with red velvet cake and different types of sprinkles. The key seems to be that if the cake pops get warm at all, they fall off the pop as you try to dip them.

    The new ones aren’t as colorful because lots of colors clash with red 🙂

    This just goes to show that you can eat just about anything in moderation.

    I’ve been thinking about trying to make cake pop for forever!!!! Thanks for the tip about making sure they are, and stay, well chilled. Did you like the red velvet ones – that’s what I was going to start with. 🙂
