We Love Lindy...and today is her special day! Have you seen the Jennifer Garner movie, 13 Going on 30? I believe Lindy could star in a whole new version...7 Going on 20! Lindy is the new 'it' girl on my blog, because she knows everything there is to know about fashion, fun, make up, hair styles and anything else proper little girls frolic with. Just ask Lindy! Special cup cakes for Lindy should include some cake pops! Found some wonderful Muppet Pops (who by the way, are celebrating their 40th anniversary this month) on one of my favorite sites http://bakerella.com/ Also found some plain ole pink ones, too just perfect for Lindy! Basic recipe is below...check out those Muppet pals, too http://muppetnewsflash.com/...never too old to enjoy the Muppets!
Basic Cake Pops
1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can frosting (16 oz.)
Pink Candy melts (1 lb. pkg.)
Edible ink pens (optional for face drawing)
1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. (I use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. But, be warned, it will get messy. Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so start out by using almost the entire can and add more if you need to.)
3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
4. Melt candy melts/chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
5. Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
6. Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
7. Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
8. Place in a styrofoam block to dry.
9. Once dry, draw faces, if desired, with an edible ink pen and allow ink to dry OR head over to check out Bakerella's post to make all the different Muppet pals OR just let them be PINK!
