Bonus Post: It’s our one year anniversary… Happy 2014!

Happy 2014! I can’t believe it has been one year since we have started this blog. We plan on having more surprises this year.  You can now follow us on our facebook page Eat it now or eat it later.

Make cake pops! Like Dad always said “eat it now or eat it later”. Well we couldn’t eat it then so we decided to eat it later in a different form.

For Christmas we made a yummy German cake. It was a moist chocolate cake with coconut and pecan filling.

Roll the cake into the size of golf balls. Don’t make them too big as they will fall off the sticks.  (We ruined a few this way). Don’t be surprised if you get an audience.

After you roll out the balls melt some chocolate in the microwave.

Dip each lollipop stick into the chocolate and place in each cake pop. This will help the sticks hold onto the cake pop.

Place the cake pops in the fridge to cool until the chocolate hardens.  When they are ready, melt some chocolate icing to dip the cake pops in.

Be creative and decorate your cake pops. This helps to hide any imperfections.  We melted some white chocolates and drizzled on top.  Then we sprinkled with non-pariels.

Place the cake pops back into the fridge to allow the icing to set.
