Champagne Cake Pops

    Are you looking forward to 2013?
    Well… that is if we make it past 12/21/2012!
    Ha-ha-ha! I’ve heard so many funny Mayan comments recently – but really, I’m planning for the New Year!
    And I hope you are too, because I made some Champagne Cake Pops for ya!
     PS New Year's Pops
    I made these for Hayley from The Domestic Rebel. She recently won one of my giveaways and was open to being a test subject for something new.
    Well, she loved my “experiment” and called it a success!
    If you don’t believe me, just ask HER!
    These were easy to make, they just took some time.
    PS+Champange+Cake+PopsTo make them easy, I used white cake mix and replaced the water with the champagne. Everything else stays the same.
    The Champagne did bubble up in the mix, so I hand stirred it before taking the hand mixer to it.
    Bake the cake and allow it to cool.
    I took 1/4 of the cake, crumbled it and mixed in 2 ounces of Champagne as the binder. The other 1/4 I just used vanilla frosting as the binder.
    For the flutes, I drilled holes into candy wafers with a little pick and then slide the wafer onto the stick. You can secure it with a dab of melted candy.
    Then shape the cake balls. I made some round and some more fluted shape.
    The Champagne pops were dipped in pale pink and lightly sprinkles with sanding sugar. Then I topped it off just a touch of white.

    I was so happy that these were a hit!
    In fact, I made 50 Champagne Cake Pops yesterday for my daughter’s teacher’s Wedding.

    1. Wow, this is an Awesome idea! They look amazing. This would be a nice addition to my alcohol-free New Year's … the alcohol does cook out during baking, right? I think so. Anyways, Happy Holidays Karyn 🙂

      1. Try just a 1/4 first and see how you like it. If you're going to just go with the whole cake, I would start with maybe 5 oz and add more as needed. Or maybe make some champagne frosting to use as binder for the whole cake.

    2. Yum! I am always looking for new dessert recipes and cake pops are always so fun. These would also be great for wedding showers! I found you through the Somewhat Simple Linky Party!
