Today I’m going to adapt the popular Babycakes NYC cake pop recipe, sans their mix, and use everything I would normally have in my pantry to create some fun treats for a friend who is about to deliver a sweet baby boy, I hope you’re ready for some humor, I present my, “About to Pop Cake Pops”.

Cake Pops are always fun–what better way to celebrate?  Who doesn’t love a cupcake on a stick ? Desserts don’t have to be on a sad list of foods you eliminate from your diet when you venture into the land of gluten and dairy free living. Even with Holidays and celebrations, given a little imagination, you can quickly adapt about anything you would enjoy otherwise. Even with a quick mix (which are  widely available and easy to find), you can easily variate a delicious treat.

I’m using a machine for my cakepops; one can also  purchase a pop tray for about eleven dollars. Or you can totally make a ball of dough and aim for round cupcakes, the baking is the easy part, it’s all in the assembly and time you allow for them to cool that will determine your success  with these. This is true for the non- vegan, and gluten free recipes as well.

First I grabbed 2 staples in my house:Bob’s all purpose g/f Flour (2 and and half cups), and baking soda ( 1 tsp.) Add 2 eggs, 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract, one half-cup dark brown sugar, a quarter cup of confectioners sugar, and  one and one half cups almond milk. Add the oil and flour mixture into a prep bowl and stir until about blended (you could also use a food processor). You want to stir until it forms a doughy consistency. I actually yielded enough dough for about 24 pops, so you can variate your recipe.

I greased my Babycakes machine very lightly with some extra virgin olive oil, and it was only moments until I had 12 awesome pops. I found it helpful to line and prep some muffin pans as I would for cupcakes, ahead of time, this is how I was going to have them cool over night, Yes! Overnight at least. Once baked I placed the round balls of cooked white cake dough into the muffin tins and placed them to cool in the fridge.

I love Enjoy Life! brand dairy/gluten/soy/nut free chips, but my local grocer was out, I went with my second choice to coat the pops, which was melted white chips. The first step in attaching your cake pop stick is by dipping your melted chocolate on the stick, and then lightly punching it into the cake pop.

I used a double boiler to melt the chocolate, and added food coloring to my chips for color, you can also use melting wafers if you desire.

Begin your decorating prep by lining a tray with parchment paper to set your dipped pops onto. This is the time to roll those add on’s for Decor like opalescent candy balls, or nonpareils. Your cake pops need to sit up and are ready to present.  To present, I recommend a lollipop tray, or just a styrofoam piece from you local craft store can work fine in a hurry, and is under 2 bucks. Enjoy your g/f, d/f cake pops. Hopefully , by the time I post this, or when I’m walking these over to my sweet neighbor, she will be on the phone with the Doctor on her way to have her bundle of joy!
