A Little Pink

On Saturday I went to a housewarming brunch for one of my coworkers.  The brunch was a potluck and (obviously) I wanted to bring a dessert.  But I also wanted to bring a pretty dessert.

BRING ON THE CAKE POPS!

I switched them up and used chocolate cake for the inside:

Those indentations are there because I was making sure the cake was cool…before I did this to it:

There’s something so satisfying about turning the cake into crumbs.

I added chocolate frosting and started making cake balls.  The best part was that I downloaded the HBO Go app on our iPad so I could watch Magic Mike!!!

That iPad stand has turned out to be a very good purchase!

I got white chocolate melts (out of the bulk bins) and added a bit of pink food coloring to make the chocolate a soft pink.

After the pink chocolate hardened up, I put a white swirly thing on top.

Not perfect, not fancy, but I like the way the white looks.  Here’s the “bouquet” I took to the party:

I had quite a bit of pink chocolate left after making the cake pops, so I make these adorable snacks:

Cute, right?!  And you really can’t beat that salty-sweet combination.
