I’m suffering some pretty major baking guilt right now. This inevitably happens every Sunday night, because…
On Wednesday: “Look! I have 37 pages of furiously scribbled notes detailing intricate baking ideas! I’m so excited for the weekend! Beep boop beep beep!”
On Thursday: “I’m gonna bake like NINETEEN DESSERTS this weekend, try and stop me! It’s gonna be wild! Yay sugar!”
On Friday: “Ehhh, well, I still have Saturday and Sunday, it can’t hurt to watch 7 hours of Ghost Hunters International instead of baking.”
On Saturday: “You mean I have to go to the GROCERY STORE? But it’s Saturday! Pass.”
On Sunday: “OMG OMG OMG I have to make a post today why didn’t I bake this weekend oh looks here’s a cake mix LET’S MAKE SOMETHING WITH IT.”
But hey, look what we got out of it! Some seriously awesome (and adorable!) cake pops! Look, humans, these couldn’t be easier to make. You don’t even have to use candy coating! Just roll them in cinnamon sugar! And if you’re even too lazy for cake pops, leave out the lollipop sticks and make cake balls instead!
Overall, I guess it’s been a pretty productive weekend. I mean, how many robots can say they’ve seen every GHI episode?
Well, one at least. And it’s serving you cake pops.
Snickerdoodle Cake Pops
makes about 3 dozen cake balls, depending on size
yellow cake mix, baked according to box instructions
canned vanilla frosting
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tbsp ground cinnamon
lollipop sticks (optional)
1. Once cake has cooled, crumble it into fine pieces in a large bowl. Add 2-3 spoonfuls (I used 2) of frosting, incorporating it into the cake using your fingers. Once the frosting is evenly distributed, use a cookie scooper to make evenly sized portions. Roll and shape the cake into balls.
2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Coat the cake balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve as is, or add lollipop sticks to make cake pops!
