Red Velvet Cake Pops

Happy Valentine's day everyone ! Hope you are having a beautiful day, with your loved ones,whether you celebrate this day or not. As I have told you before, this day is like any other day for me and my DH, everyday being Valentine's day. Ok, I agree that we have our not-so-good days, just like any other sane couple in the world,but there is always love,no matter what kind of day it is.Said that, I'm going to paint this space pink today,for you all !

Red Velvet Cake Pops

We celebrate this day for the kids.They love all the goodies I make,and home-made valentines they get to share with their friends.For lil imp,this is the first Valentine's day celebration with his friends at preschool. Every year I think, I get the ready made valentines and cards for the kids to share with their friends. But, the fun of making them at home, with kids, is priceless ! So,as always,we as a team, made valentines for 5th graders and preschoolers, at home this time as well.This time we made some lovely bookmarks, with Tattoos for the boy and with chocolates for the girl,for sharing with their pals.




Red Velvet Cake Pops

Here's the anatomy of cake pops ! Yes, I couldn't stop taking a bite while shooting :-)

Red Velvet Cake Pops

My sweet daughter requested me to make something nice for her V day party at school and I couldn't think of anything better than these beauties to celebrate the day of love and friendship !They look pretty and tastes nice with the red velvet plus cream cheese inside and an outer coat of chocolate. A lethal combination,I must say !

Red Velvet Cake Pops

When I got tired of making the pops, I made these cake pops in a cup ! Neat,isn't it?

Red Velvet Cake Pops

How can I say goodbye, without giving you a virtual Red Rose on this special day ? Have a great day and live every day as it is a Valentine's day ! Love you all !

Collaborative Curry

Ingredients:

1 box store bought Red velvet cake mix
1 container store bought Cream Cheese Frosting
1 package chocolate bark

Method:

1.Make the cake according to directions on the pack.
2.After the cake cools down, crumble it in a big mixing bowl.Mix in the frosting using your hands. (It's messy, but this works best)
3.Keep it in the refrigerator for about an hour before you start making the balls.
4.Make small balls out of the dough. This is a messy process,you might have to wipe your hands clean in between.
5.Let the cake balls set in the freezer for an hour. (leave them without covering)
6.melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave.
7.Dip an end of lollipop stick in chocolate and stick it in the cake ball.
8.Hold the stick horizontally on the top of chocolate bowl. Using a spoon pour chocolate over the cake ball.Take out any extra chocolate using the spoon.Sprinkle funfetti if you are using any.
9.Keep it sticking on a Styrofoam box and let it set.

Notes:

1.If you roll the cake balls again after you keep them in the freezer for some time, you get perfect shape.
2.It is better to use chocolate barks or candy melts when you make cake pops.Take a little at a time while you melt it,if you are using a microwave.That way the chocolate keeps warm and easy to work with.
3.If you think your melted chocolate is too thick add a little bit of vegetable oil and mix it.
4.I used chocolate chips,which I had in handy, but I won't recommend it.They take longer to melt and it is really thick.
5.If you want to make cake balls instead of pops,after dipping in chocolate place them on a parchment paper and let set.
6.If you keep a large tray or some news paper under,while you sprinkle,it will be easy to clean up :-)
7.Though it sounds simple ,this whole process is time consuming.So plan ahead.
8.I made ~54 cake pops from a 16 oz ready mix.
