Champagne Cake Pops

Are you looking forward to 2013? 
Well... that is if we make it past 12/21/2012! 
Ha-ha-ha! I've heard so many funny Mayan comments recently - but really, I'm planning for the New Year!
And I hope you are too, because I made some Champagne Cake Pops for ya!

I made these for Hayley from The Domestic Rebel. She recently won one of my giveaways and was open to being a test subject for something new.
Well, she loved my "experiment" and called it a success!
If you don't believe me, just ask HER!

These were easy to make, they just took some time.

To make them easy, I used white cake mix and replaced the water with the champagne. Everything else stays the same. 
The Champagne did bubble up in the mix, so I hand stirred it before taking the hand mixer to it. 

Bake the cake and allow it to cool.

I took 1/4 of the cake, crumbled it and mixed in 2 ounces of Champagne as the binder. The other 1/4 I just used vanilla frosting as the binder.

For the flutes, I drilled holes into candy wafers with a little pick and then slide the wafer onto the stick. You can secure it with a dab of melted candy.

Then shape the cake balls. I made some round and some more fluted shape. 

The Champagne pops were dipped in pale pink and lightly sprinkles with sanding sugar. Then I topped it off just a touch of white.

I was so happy that these were a hit!
In fact, I made 50 Champagne Cake Pops yesterday for my daughter's teacher's Wedding. 

I link up at THESE GREAT parties!
