Rainy, Cold Sundays Means Trying New Things

It's rainy, cold and raw outside. Feels like October, so much so that I made an assortment of hot soups last night for dinner. And roasted lemon chicken for tonight's dinner. Comfort food, in the middle of May.

I wanted needed to go to a couple specific stores today, but I found out both were closed on Sundays. Jeez. Apparently, every music store in our area is closed on Sundays. I guess those musicians who run the place perform gigs Saturday night and they don't want to work on Sundays. I understand, but really need to buy some saxophone reeds for my son....

With some free time on my hands, I decided to try my hand at making some Cake Pops. I used the Red Velvet Cake Ball recipe from Bakerella. In a nutshell, bake up a box of red velvet cake. Let cool. Crumble the cake and add a container of cream cheese frosting and mix together. Form into balls. Freeze. Melt some chocolate almond bark and coat the balls with the melted chocolate.

Viola:
Setting Up
I bought lollipop sticks and stuck them into the cake balls. I stuck the cooling balls on some Styrofoam I found in the basement. I ended up tilting them so that the excess melted chocolate would drip on to the Styrofoam instead of the stick.

Yummy on the inside:

While they were very yummy, they are a bit too sweet for my taste (I don't like really sugary sweets). I might try them again with a little less frosting. But they were a hit with the rest of the family.

I guess a rainy Sunday every now and then isn't so bad....

It looks like you did a really great job with the frosting. I had a hard time getting it covered well. Did you thin the frosting somehow?

Very interesting take on Red Velvet Cake... never seen Cake Pops before!
