Cake Bite Lollipops Fail
My CFO’s birthday is today and I really wanted to make her something special instead of going to Publix and buying their normal blah cake. I really wanted to show off my baking skills (what?! some people still think I have them ;) ) and impress everyone by making some of these:
I bought chocolate cake mix and funfetti cake mix. I bought cream cheese icing, 2 bags of melting candies, almond bark (in case the melting candies were disgusting, which from tasting it, I think they’re actually melting candies in block form), kabob sticks (because I couldn’t find lollipop sticks anywhere), and powdered sugar (in case the melting chocolate and almond bark were a fail).
Good news is…
We’ll be eating chocolate cake today.
Bad news is…
We will not be eating funfetti cake lollipops.
I have no idea what went wrong. They fell down the kabobs.
They tasted like a big gob of frosting.
They looked mushed and mashed and not very “cake-like”.
I tried to cover them in frosting and just place them in cupcake liners but that was a serious no-no as well. The frosting was so thick and gooey that it was just not even edible anymore.
Talk about a serious fail. And to add to the drama, I ran out of cranberry juice so I had to drink my vodka with cherry koolaid. Agh.
There’s a reason I am not a baker!
Ever tried making these things? Ever succeeded?! What’s your trick?
