{Party In A Pinch} 4th of July Cake Pops

I am SOOO excited to have Emily from Emmy's Events as a guest blogger today! From the moment that Emily told me about her SUPER EASY Semi-Homemade Cake Pops, I just knew that I had to try them out and have her give you all the inside scoop on how whip up some fabulous cake pops if you are pulling together a Party In A Pinch! 


Hi there! Emily Clinton from Emmy’s Events here to give you a super easy, NO BAKE cake pop tutorial. Give these a try at your Fourth of July party, I know you’ll absolutely love them!

You Will Need: 
- Entenmann’s Glazed Pop’ems
- Wilton Candy Melts
- Canned Frosting (any brand is fine just don’t buy “whipped”) 
- Lollipop Sticks or Paper Drinking Straws Food Coloring & Sprinkles
- Wax Paper or Styrofoam (depending on whether you prefer them stick up or stick down)

1. Melt a handful of Wilton Candy Melts in the microwave. Dip the lollipop stick or paper straw into the melted candy and insert it about half way in to the donut. Set the pop on a plate and refrigerate until the candy hardens.

2. Put a scoop of canned frosting in a microwave safe container and tint with food coloring if desired. Microwave the frosting for 5-10 seconds. The frosting will be slightly warm and completely liquified. Stir to mix in the food coloring

3. Dip the refrigerated pop into the melted frosting and quickly pull it out, allowing the excess to dip back into the cup. Set the wet cake pop on a tray lined with a sheet of wax paper. You may need to hold it upright for a second or two until it dries enough to stand by itself.
Note: If your frosting begins to harden simply warm in the microwave again until it becomes liquid.

4. Add sprinkles, if desired, while the frosting is still wet. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until the outer coating is completely set.

5. Serve in mini cupcake liners or arranged on a plate! Enjoy!!

  8. The Internet never stops to amaze me with new inventions, no matter if it is food, clothing or any technology and these cake pops are an example of it. Not only this but I also found the Best humanities assignment help UK last night, which I first thought I would fail but they gave me hope and did the work up to the mark.

  10. It all relies on your goals how to write a literature review for a dissertation. If you're writing a dissertation on a certain topic, you should concentrate on producing a literature review that discusses the current body of work on that subject. If you're writing a dissertation on a broader topic, a review of the current body of work on similar themes may be more appropriate.
