I was quite pleased with my first crafts of cake pops. Although the decorations were not perfect and there were many flaws due to the bad handling of chocolate and coating... my friends were still very amazed when they saw the cake pops.
I came up with the idea of making them when I was thinking what to bake for my colleague's birthday party. Having known that other friends are going to buy cakes for them, I decided that I shouldn't bake any thing extra as there would be too much cake for everyone! Instead, I came up with the idea of making birthday pops. I loved them!! Although I was a bit lazy and due to time constraint, I made the cake inside with cake mix, I still spent a lot of time shaping the cake and decorating the cake.
My efforts paid off as my colleagues were very very impressed and they loved it. I was so blessed and happy that I could bring joy to them. Thank you God, for giving me a pair of hands that could bake and decorate.
And I do realize that in Hong Kong, cake pops are not that popular. But this is such a cute and pretty sweet for parties!! Maybe I could specialize in that.. if I would ever open a shop in the future...!
