Hope is Happening (So is Sushi)

We had our monthly girl's baking day held at Kacey's house! As I've mentioned before the hostess gets to pick what we make and what we have for lunch. Kacey wanted to make Bakerella's cake pops and sushi. Great choices!

We were each successful at rolling our own sushi roll. We stuffed them with mushrooms, carrots, cucumbers, avocado and imitation crab. Kacey made homemade spicy mayo which was fantastic. She also made a cold soba noodle salad. We had a great time sitting on the floor stuffing ourselves with Asian food.

We intended to make our cake pops look like boobies for the Bake for Hope bakesale. After much discussion we decided we weren't going to be overly successful at that and went for simply decorated cake pops. I adore them.

Cake Pops
Source: Bakerella
Yield: 3 dozen

1 box cake mix (any kind)
1 can frosting (any kind)
Chocolate coating of some sort

Bake cake per directions using any cake pan. While cake is still hot crumble into a large bowl. Add can of frosting. Roll into 1 inch balls. At this point you can insert the sticks. Dip them in the chocolate and then press into the cake ball. Refrigerate until solid. Now dip in chocolate and decorate. Have fun with this!!!
