Roses are Red by Flour Arrangements
~:: Flour Arrangements ::~
My daughter Tessa has been asking me to make cake pops for about a year. I’m usually game to experiment in the kitchen, but whenever she brought up the subject of cake pops, I always found some excuse to put her off. For some reason, the idea of baking a cake just to crumble it up and wad it into balls seemed strange and unappealing to me. The other thing that got me was this: every time I looked up instructions for making cake pops, I read that I should bake a boxed cake mix and open a can of prepared frosting. I love to bake from scratch, so these first steps always deterred me. I see now that my objections are pretty lame: nothing was stopping me from substituting whatever cake and frosting that I wanted.
