Yesterday the 13 was my aunt’s dog’s birthday, Jordan and she decided to throw him a party. I’m taking a break from oven baking so I decided to use my cake pop machine to make the treats.
I was looking for a recipe for 6 cupcakes to turn them into cake pops, I found one for 6 mini cupcakes, but they were vanilla. I couldn’t find another recipe for that little cupcakes so I used that one and altered it to make it more summer.
I made two batches and ended up with 27 cake balls. Some for the party and some for my friends.
Not that round, but close enough.
I left them cooling in their tray while I made the icing.
Here I was dipping them in the icing. For the party I only dipped them halfway which was 9.
They were a big hit, everyone wanted more. Should’ve brought more because I had plenty, but that’s all that fit in the container I brought them in.
I dipped some more today to give to my other aunt who was working that night. This time I dipped them all the way and put them in red mini liners. I drizzled a little bit more on top.
Orange Mango Cake Balls
• 1 egg white
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 2 tablespoons butter, melted
• 2 teaspoons orange mango juice ( I used simply orange with mango)
• 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
• 1/4 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
• pinch of salt
• 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
This is enough for 6 mini cupcakes.
In a glass mixing bowl, melt your butter until just soft, add egg white, sugar and juice whisk until well combined. Add flour, baking powder and salt, whisk until smooth, stir in milk. Spray cake ball machine with non-stick spray and divide batter equally between domes. Machine will tell you when they are ready. If you are baking them, set the oven at 350 degrees and bake for 10-12 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
