One Monday Morning many months ago, I had 3 cake/cake pop orders. Three. On a Monday morning.
That is not how I usually spend my Monday mornings. Sunday through Tuesday are usually my days "off". I rarely do any baking or cake decorating on those days because Thursday - Saturday is usually crammed pack with cakes stuff.
Did you notice that I missed Wednesday. Wednesday is sort of a gray area. If my week is really busy - I work that day. If it's an easy week - I take another day off.
Now, don't get any images floating in your head of me lazing around, drinking sweet tea and watching soap operas for 3-4 days a week. No.
On my "off" days from cake, I still homeschool the six kids, tackle housework and laundry, I manage my blogs (this one and RoseAtwater.com) and social media and cook for my family ... and all of the other things that come with being a work-from-home, homeschooling Mommy and wife. It's no vacation - I promise!
Anywho - on this particular Monday morning, I had two cakes and an order of these pretty Pink and Silver Cake pops for a wedding. The couple was driving out of state with only a handful of family and friends to get married and the bride wanted to take something with them to have as a 'wedding cake'. They decided on pretty pink cake pops!
I'm going to give you a quick run-down on the cake pops, okay?
Here's what you need to know.
- I baked a red velvet cake and made a small batch of vanilla buttercream.
- This post shows how I make cake pops.
- I used pink candy coloring for to color the almond bark very pale pink. Please note, if the bold text is not linked, click over to the post to find the product links. Also, if you didn't know... you cannot use regular gel coloring in almond bark or melted white chocolate. It will cause it to seize. Get oil-based candy coloring!!
- I sprinkled them with silver sparkling sugar before they completely dried.
And they were done! Do you have any questions?
