Unless you have been living under a rock, it is pretty likely you’ve come across a BuzzFeed or Tasty video giving you a 30-second tutorial on how to whip up a tasty snack or treat.
A few weeks ago, my friends and I decided to make one of these videos a reality. We took on the challenge of making red velvet cake pops. We started off with store-bought cake mix and baked it according to the instructions on the box. After the cake cooled, we rolled up our sleeves and crumbled up our red velvet. After finely crumbling it, we mixed in cream cheese frosting.
After mixing our frosting and cake, we began to create our cake pops! Things got a little “trial and error” from here. We realized as we started to make cake balls, rolling cake into quarter-size balls, that it would help more if we stuck the cake crumble in the freezer to chill. So, we put our mix in the freezer for about 10 minutes. From there, we were able to roll our cake pops and slide cake sticks into each. We then placed them in the freezer to set even more.
As the freezer did its magic, we danced around the kitchen to music to kill some time. After bustin’ some moves, we began to dip our cake pops in melted white chocolate. Once they were covered in chocolate, we put them back in the freezer to make sure everything set properly for a final time…
We finished our cake pops off with purple dyed chocolate drizzle and enjoyed the fruits of our labor. We realized that in reality, these fun little videos are actually quite doable! Give your favorite recipe a try, or master our Cake Pops!
