Cake Pops & Paper Straws [Bakerella]

Happy Monday! 
What can you say about this photo?  Are real cupcakes or what?  Look delicous, huh?

Photo from Bakerella

Two weeks ago, I came across Bakerella - more about them HERE.  Angie Dudley is a genius for coming up with the now very popular 'cake pops!'  I spent several hours browsing through her website, watching her on The Martha Stewart show , looking at all the cute photos and recipes.  Aren't the paper straws lovely?  Bakerella has an ongoing contest - click HERE if you want to join.
Her website encouraged me so much that I decided to buy my own "Cake Pops" book.  

My Own CAKE POPS book
It was the last copy at the store where I bought it.  Yay!  All the photos and ideas were great!    So what are cake pops?  They are "tiny candy-covered confections made of crumbled cake mixed with frosting that you can mold into different shapes and decorate for any occasion.  They are super-sweet, extremely moist and completely covered in candy coating."  There is no limit to the designs that one can create with it.
I am pretty excited to make a design for our upcoming reunion and birthday celebrations in April.
Your dessert table would surely impress your guests with your personally created treats.  Happy creating!

Aren;t they adorable? You can check out Bakerella's website - she named her source for the paper straws.
