Cake Pops for Beth!

This was my first attempt at making cake pops made famous by Bakerella. Coco came up to help make the cake pops for a fundraiser at Trinity Lutheran Church. Beth, who is a member of Trinity, has recently had medical problems that have landed her in a local hospital and then a trip to Mayo Clinic. If this wasn't enough of a problem, her husband suffers from Lou Gehrig's disease and they have no medical insurance. The Abbie's Angel's group at church decided to have a community-wide picnic/auction to help with Beth's medical expenses.

Coco had made cake pops at Easter time, so she was most helpful showing me the technique of shaping, dipping, decorating, etc. I would love to make cake pops again, the idea is unique and the possibilities are endless for decorating.

Many thanks to Bakerella for sharing her talent with us!!!


  1. I must say, we do good work:)!!
    I had such a good time doing these pops with you and I love the way you styled them to take them to the church. I'm so pleased that so much was raised for Beth and her family, it's so nice when a community reaches out and helps!

  2. you and Coco - such talent. I always wanted to try my hand at cake pops, but I am afraid I would eat more than I would create. You know eating my many mistakes...
