Red Velvet Cake Pops

Wanna be a trend setter? If you do, than these cake pops are something out of the ordinary and they are some kind of delicious! After my friend Lauren brought these to my attention, I knew that my sweets addiction would not let me forget about them until I made them. All I could think of  for several days were these cake pops. So I got to work…

I have to say, they were not as easy as I thought that they would be. It went something like this: baking 2 cakes, mixing up some cream cheese icing, mixing it all together, rolling them into little balls, freezing them, coating them with chocolate, decorating them and eating them. Wow, that was a sentence full! One thing I would do differently next time is keep them frozen up until moments before I serve them. If you don’t do this, they will thaw out and fall down the stick, making a not so pretty cake pop.

Eggnog Spice Bundt Cake

Ever wondered what to do with all that extra eggnog you have after the holidays? My solution…bake with it! That is my answer to most of life’s issues when it comes to eggnog. Eggnog spice bundt cake really outperforms many other holiday favourites and I will tell you why. The smell alone, wafting through your home, will put a smile on your nose for the rest of the day. The smell even encouraged me to put some Christmas music on and dance in the kitchen. Although this may not inspire you to listen to Christmas music since it is mid-January, I’m sure that you can bust your dance moves any time of the year! This cake also puts a nice finish on Christmas dinner or to a 12pm snack on New Years Eve or to a Chinese New Year party. The top comment I received from the partakers of this cake was that it was the “most moist cake they’ve ever had.” Bake away my friends!

2011 year in review

The stats helper monkeys from WordPress prepared a 2011 annual report for The Male Baker!

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it. Booya!!!
