Looking for a festive sweet treat to bake for your Christmas guests? Look no further then this blog entry!
Cake pops will be the death of me, I am sure of it. Every year at Christmas time my mom asks me to bake something for her office party. She hates/can’t cook, and she’ll be the first to admit it. I have been obsessed with mastering the cake pop, so I thought I would try again. I used a different recipe this time, and still they didn’t come out like the perfect pops I see at stores.
I couldn’t send my mom to work with those disasters, so I had to think on my feet. I used the batter to create these cookie shaped cakes, and decorated them with this awesome kit. Making the cakes takes no time at all, and is much simpler than attempted those damn cake pops!
Any Cake Mix (I used devil’s food cake)
Pudding Mix (Match the flavor of the mix to the flavor of the cake. I used chocolate cake mix, and chocolate pudding mix)
3 Large Eggs

Your cake mix box will provide you with instructions. It will tell you to use water. Replace the water with half the amount of milk. If the box instructs you to use 2 cups of water, you would use 1 cup of milk instead. Once the wet ingredients have been whisked together, add the cake mix. Do not over stir the cake batter, simply make sure that all ingredients are wet. Next, add the pudding mix and stir together until wet.
Take a wide cup, and place a plastic ziplock bag inside of the cup. Make sure the top bag covers the edges of the cup. Using your mixing spoon, spoon in the cake mixture into the ziplock baggy. Once filled, cut the tip off of the bottom corner of the bag. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your baking sheet with baking spray, so that the cakes to do not stick to the pan. Pipe your cake mix onto a baking sheet in a circular motion, creating a circle the size of a medium cookie. Let the cakes bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through. Let sit, and cool.
Once cooled, take chocolate frosting and cover the top of the cakes only. Add your candy ears, eyes, noses, and bows. You’re all done, and ready to enjoy with your guests.
