Cupcake Pop Challenge

March 27, 2009 at 9:13 pm 13 comments

I am 2 hours and 15 minutes from my NaBloPoMo Friday posting deadline. Eek!

… and then it hit me. Well I can’t take too much credit. Let me back up. After my foodie question of the day, I got some comments, a couple emails, multiple tweets and direct messages (DMs) from readers expressing their surprise at my cupcake pop aversion.

I guess it’s kinda silly being a self-proclaimed cupcake-ista to be afraid of making cupcake anything but what can I say? I am. But after some encouraging tweets from Bakerella (The Cupcake Pop Masta!) and some lyrical ♫♪words♫ from twitter partner in crime, Rebecca from Ezra Poundcake, I’m throwing down the cupcake pop challenge!

I’ll be doing my cupcake pop thang this Sunday, March 29th. If you wanna hold me accountable play along, feel free to put your big girl apron on and get your hands dirty! I don’t care which pop you wanna make. You wanna follow exactly what Bakerella did? Cool. You wanna adapt or do your own thing? Even better.

Me? I might adapt. Or not. Depends on my mood. I’m kinda moody lately. HAHA

Fine print: Post your pictures, experience, tips, suggestions etc on your blog by Sunday 1159pm PST. Feel free to use my banner. Linking me is optional. (Linking will alert me to check out your blog though.) I’d say that linking Bakerella would be a nice and appreciated gesture.

Sounds fun, Clara? What do I get for participating?

Uh… you get the satisfaction of biting off Hello Kitty’s head when you’re done. What more do you need? LOL

With that I leave you with some wise words from Rebecca:
“We can’t be intimidated by floating “Hello Kitty” heads. We’re way too gangsta!”

True dat.

    Oh, cake bites and pops are such fun! I might have too much on my plate for the weekend, but maybe I’ll throw together a few anyway. :)

    Have fun!

    good luck gangsta! ;)

    i made these for halloween and although mine weren’t as uber purty as bakerella’s… they were YUMMO! i did some w/ the sticks and some w/o. my chocolate was so thick though which made it really hard to coat thinly.. not sure what brand the guru’s are using though…

    can’t wait to see pics!

    I’m in! As mentioned earlier on twitter though… no candy melts, gonna do my best with some chips. No mini cookie cutter either *pout* so I guess they will be (blue!) cake pops.

    I made the HK and cupcake pops for the first time to share with friends this past weekend (posted pics in my Tumblr). Bakerella’s How-To is pretty clear, but she does have good tips in the comment sections in where she replies to readers. Good Luck!

    Sorry I missed a few of your posts darling! I have never made a cupcake pop before, but they look fun and I bet they are delicious too.

    I might or might not be way to late, considering it’s April 10th or something, but I have been making cupcake pops lately.
