I helped make 100 cake pops for a wedding this past weekend. It was a project for food stylist Karla Spies, she brought all the ingredients and supplies into the studio so we could record the assembly of making cake pops. She brought several decorating options and they turned out delicious.
Make vanilla cake from box mix cake.
Make homemade buttercream frosting.
Crumble cake into buttercream frosting.
Mix cake and frosting till they roll into nice balls.
I’ve been waiting to make this cake, and finally it was near valentines day and my sisters birthday-done. A lover of chocolate and good beer a perfect combination. The finaI creation with pecans and Carmel whiskey frosting and butter cream frosting on top. I stopped at the liquor store and found a four pack of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, sounds perfect.
This recipe makes three 8 inch cakes, that’s alot of cake. I chopped some pecans and sprinkled them in between the layers with the Carmel Whiskey Frosting. Why stop there, the top layer is chocolate Buttercream frosting. WOW it was like a turtle pecan candy. this cake is so good, must find another reason to make very soon.
