I wanted to try to make some cake pops so I bought a new silicon pan and made some cake batter I filled the cups 3/4 full (which is a little to full - the cups overflowed a bit) I took some flower foam Then I bought a little shamrock bucket to "plant" my cake pops in. I cut the foam down to size and fit it inside the bucket
I stuck the cake pop sticks in the pops then I planted them in the foam (next time I'll put a little green grass around the foam to cover it up. The only problem was that I made cream cheese frosting, which is pretty heavy, so the cake pops wouldn't stay suspended on the sticks after they were frosted.
I'll have to try it again and use more of a glaze-type frosting. This was a fun baking experiment and I learned a few things that I'm hoping will help me next time.
