Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
We all know that the queen of cake pops is the infamous Bakerella. She did an amazing series on Sesame Street back in 2009, called Street Party. I decided to take her Cookie Monster Cake Pop recipe and try it out for a friend’s birthday. Here is the recipe I used [via Bakerlla]. One caveat – Bakerella’s recipe calls for an entire can of frosting to be mixed with the baked cake. I find this to be a bit excessive and it makes the process pretty messy. I ended up using 1/3 – 1/2 of the can of icing and the recipe turned out fine!
1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1/2 can frosting (16 oz.)
Blue candy melts
Dark chocoloate candy melts
Lollipop sticks & wrapping kit
Gripz Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
Edible ink pens
Side Note: I made these cake pops the day after the first presidential debate this year (which was Oct. 3, 2012). Remember what Romney said [via Huffington Post]?
“I like PBS. I love Big Bird, but I am not going to keep spending money on things [we have] to borrow money from China to pay for.”
After Romney threatened to cut funding for PBS, Big Bird wasn’t the only one in trouble! Cookie Monster would be looking for jobs too – so I gave him a ‘sandwich board’ that said “Will work for cookies!” – in the event that Romney was elected. Well we all know how that ended for the fate of PBS. Sesame Street will live on and so will Cookie Monster!
Here is a slideshow of all the ingredients and the steps it took to make Cookie Monster! Good luck making your own cake pops 🙂
