The girls and their cake pops

Kaycee got a cake pop making kit for Christmas but due to moving house in January, it was packed away and forgotten about for a while.

When she saw it the other day she got all excited again and asked if we could make some so I bought sprinkles and chocolate and away they went!

They’ve made sponge cake mix so often that I don’t need to supervise until it’s time to put them in the oven so I left them to it and carried on sorting boxes for the loft.

The cake pop mold worked really well. I’m not sure why that surprised me but it did! We didn’t have much luck with making the sticks stay put in the cake though when it came time to dip in the chocolate. We did as was suggested by another blog and dipped the sticks in melted chocolate before pushing into the cake and we put them in the fridge but I reckon we were a little impatient and didn’t leave them in long enough!
Anyway, it was messy but we finally got all 40 cake pops covered in chocolate…some in orange flavoured aero and some in toblerone then dipped them in the sprinkles.

The girls loved making them and have asked if we can make more soon. I will let them but I have to admit to not wanting them to make any this week because I’m trying to have a really good week diet wise and seeing those staring at me every time I open the fridge has been a nightmare this week!
I get weighed at Slimming World later and I’m not holding out much hope for a loss after not being able to resist one or two, or three of these as well as a takeaway on Sunday night!
