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.
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.
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!
