What are cake pops?

Cake pop is a ball of soft and moist cake coated with chocolate giving an awesome mix of textures. Sure to win the hearts of our little hearts as they are super duper cute and droolsome. Cake pop is an excellent way to use the left over cake or cakes that break while de moulding etc. Although they are so appealing that they are worth making using a perfect cake. Once you know how to make cake pops you can make them on any special occasions or even as decorations for cake.

Let talk about the ingredients for cake pops

Cake pops call for cake. Any sponge cake works great. You can choose something simple as vanilla cake or chocolate cake or any other cake as per your choice. Apart from cake we need some frosting and some chocolate compound. I have used simple eggless vanilla cake. Cake pops allow a lot of customisation. Right from base i.e. cake upto the way you pep it up… go ahead and make yours!

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
