Last weekend, I had my first try at a DIY project. I attempted making cake pops, which I want to give as favors. I found a great recipe online with detailed instructions. I also decided to go back home since my Mom is always a great help (and I am not the best in the kitchen).
This first step which is mixing the cake mix and a can of icing. I used Funfetti since it was my favorite flavor as a kid. It brought back great memories!
Then we hand rolled them into small 1 inch balls.
I made most of them into cake pops.
I also left a few without the stick to just try as normal cake pops.
After leaving them in the freezer for six hours we iced them with candy coating. Since we were just trying them out we experimented with sprinkles, chopped peanuts, and different designs. My favorite were the ones with the peanut coating.
This is the final product. I used ribbon that we had in the house, but will upgrade the ribbon for the wedding. I also want to add a cute tag that says thank you and the flavor of the cake pop.
Not only was this a lot of fun, but they were extremely yummy. I hope my guests like them as much as I do!
