As I’m writing this, I’m suffering from a pretty intense sugar rush. I’m feeling loopy and slightly tipsy, which is is odd because these effects happened rather suddenly. You see, I made cake pops similar to the ones I made for Halloween last year. I used moist white cake mix and a can of buttercream frosting for the filling. Then, I melted white chocolate chips for the coating. However, there were two cake pops that didn’t coat as smoothly as I would’ve liked, so I ate both of them pretty quickly, i.e. within 10 seconds of each other. After eating these two coated cake pops, I started to feel woozy and light-headed! The funniest part is that I wasn’t drinking at all! I was surprised by this feeling, especially since it happened approximately 1 minute after I had eaten the two messed up cake pops, so I immediately stopped the coating process and just left the rest of the cake pops uncoated, which I kind of like. Instead, I rolled them in some red and green sugar crystals. They’re sort of like cake bonbons.
Anyway, as for the lucky few cake pops that ended up with decent coating, I managed to decorate them as well with red and green sugar crystals. I was planning on making some with blue sprinkles in honor of my Jewish readers, but the sugar rush occurred before I could do so.
Feel free to make these cake pops! They’re all the rage, and I highly recommend eating the cake crumb and frosting balls without the coating. It’s like eating soft and moist mini cake bites.
