First off, I have been meaning to make cake pops ever since Bakerella was on Martha Stewart with them. Seriously, it’s been that long! Actually, it was those mini cupcake looking cake pops that first got me interested in them. I have the cutter, I’ve had it for a few years, but I just haven’t taken the time to make them yet. They seem a little…well, time consuming. Not sure if I have the patience for it.
But, I did finally get around to making some cake pops. And yes, these are gluten-free. Aren’t they cute? I made them for the last day of school. The beginning of our summer freedom. Hot days splashing in the pool or coloing off under the sprinkler. Staying up late(r). Camping. Gardening. Trips to the library. Hanging out with neighbor kids. Sleepover at Grandparent’s house. It’s all so much better in summer. Ah…I love summer – And gluten-free cake pops.
So, here are some very basic instructions on how I made them. I am no professional, I merely a Mom that wanted to have a fun summery snack for her kids.
Now, if you’ve accomplished the simple, round, sprinkled version, maybe you should move up to the more advanced decorating. It is absolutely AMAZING what some people can do with a little cake, frosting and moulding wafers. Unreal!
