Coffee-Cake Pops


December is my most favourite month of the year. December is always filled with decorations, gifts, cakes, chocolates & my mom's special preparations mainly because of....Christmas,  my parent's wedding anniversary, ending of another year and my birthday too :)  So to start of with the lovely month i made cake pops. This was my first trial. When  i thought of making i had no lollipop sticks in stock but i couldn't resist giving a trial, so i used normal straws. When you have a plan for making this get lollipop sticks in advance coz straws are not firm enough to hold the cake. Hope you'll love this. Gotta try more varieties in cake pops coz i absolutely enjoyed making it. More Christmas delicacies are yet to appear in my blog. Will be up with the next one soon !!
