1  COOKING / Dessert / No-Bake CakePops! on: February 08, 2012 06:46:49 PM

I saw a recipe somewhere to do cakepops using cake recipe and then adding a ton of frosting, so I thought for those of us with less time and maybe wanting less sugar, I could do it with store bought cake!
Ingredients: 1 box store bought sliced cake of your choice (sugar free here is a third of the calories)
                 1 container frosting of your choice (for a white cake I use vanilla and a chocolate I use half
                    chocolate and half vanilla)
                 1 pack chocolate chips
                 1 dozen pop sticks

Step 1: Crumble up all of the cake into a bowl

Step 2: Add 1/2 a container of frosting to bowl (or a quarter of 2 different flavors)

Step 3: Use your hands to MIX the heck out of it until it forms a ball.

Step 4: Freeze for 20-30 mins until thicker consistency

Step 5: Form into small balls (Pic is batch done with chocolate frosting because camera stopped working earlier)

Step 6: Melt chocolate chips, place end of pop stick into chocolate, then place stick through bottom of ball. This will help hold the stick on

Step 7: Allow 10 mins for chocolate to harden at bottom of pop

Step 8: Dip pops into chocolate. I find it is easier to use a spoon full of chocolate and drag it around the pop

Step 9: Allow chocolate to harden

Step 10: Enjoy!

I havent crafted much this year due to my twin pregnancy. I made my Bella and Kayla thanksgiving skirts to wear, since they were born the first week of Nov. The skirts are made of toule on an elastic. Super easy.

Quick tutorial:
1. using wedding toule, about 3" wide, measure the length you want the skirt, then double it and add 1" cut first set of 5
2. Take 1" wide waist elastic and measure the waist you will make the skirt for. Add 3" and cut it.
3. Tie elastic in circle.
4. Using your leg to hold the elastic (put it around the leg), take toule and fold in half over the elastic and tie it around
5. Keep going until it is all the way around the skirt

Here is what it looked like!

Most of my crafts circle around my freakish obsession for Mr. Smee... well, I decided the upkeep on my blinged out Smee cell phone case was too much, so I got a plastic case and used some plastic pens... and viola! Mr. Smee... I cannot draw well, but he came out okay...

Why should Thanksgiving not get a tacky sweater? I say it should. I did this today out of an old, big sweatshirt. It is all in glitter. I used my finger to texture the glitter. Then I added my blinky lights to it. I may actually wear it! Oh, Tanya Turkey is made from my hand like you do as a kid.
let me know what you think!

Lights are from a craft store. They come with a small battery pack they you just sew onto a piece of velcro. Really easy to use, but do not like to sit flat!
