Popin’ 4th

The 4th of July is for celebrating all the wonderful things about America. Freedom, baseball, jazz music and gluttony.

My sister and I made cake pops for an Amurica (yes spelled with a U) themed party, they were pretty much a hit.

We used a  red, white and blue funfetti cake mix made by Pillsbury. That way the pops are American inside and out.

Cake pops are super easy to make.

The first step is to make a cake. Once the cake is cooled you’ll crumble the cake into a bowl, make sure you get rid of all the big chunks.

Next mix in frosting with the cake. Be careful not to add too much so it doesn’t get too thin.

Roll the cake/frosting combination into balls, or whatever shape you’d like. I made a few star-shaped ones and a few flag- shaped ones.

Let the cake freeze for about 20 minutes.

While they are freezing melt baking chocolate in a bowl to dip the cake pops in.

Once fully frozen put the cake balls on a stick then dip them into the chocolate covering the entire cake ball. Freeze the chocolate then decorate!

My friends and I are probably the only people over the age of 20 who still have slip-n-slides at our parties.
