I was a little embarrassed to title this post "Easter Egg Cake Pops" since Easter is long gone, but I really wanted to share my latest cake pop creation...
So you've probably seen my cake pops before.
These are different... there's a little surprise inside! First I must say I was a little inspired by Amanda over at I Am Baker, since she is the master at putting surprises inside her cakes! My surprise was on a much smaller (and predictable!) scale.
My mom asked me if I would be willing to make a treat for Easter lunch and I thought it'd be fun for the kids to enjoy some cake pops. Being the super "creative" person I am, I decided to make eggs! :)
But I wanted them to be as realistic as possible, without the cake tasting like eggs (ewww...), so I added a yellow yolk inside.
And because I can never stop at "simple" or "easy", I decided to go with a lemon flavored egg yolk, with a vanilla flavored egg white.
It actually turned out pretty easy to make. Have you ever had a "juicy lucy" burger? If you haven't, let me first tell you how AMAZING they are. And if you have, you know that they hide a little block of cheesy goodness inside the hamburger patty before they cook it on the grill. So that's basically what I did. I had to chill my yolks first so they'd hold they're shape, and then chill the egg again once it was formed.
And then I got to have fun decorating! And eating...
Hope you, um, had a nice Easter... (you could always try these next year!)
