Pilgrim and Indian Thanksgiving Place Cards

Pilgrim and Indian Thanksgiving Place Card Craft

I had planned on sharing a post about the Pumpkin Cake Pops that I made for my women's group this week.  Instead of having delicious cake pops to share, they turned into a what not to do post.  I do not normally make cake pops by hand, but I felt pretty certain I knew what I was doing.   Tip #1  Do not make cake pops after 10 p.m. when you are tired.  Tip #2 Do not assume you remember the recipe when it is not something you have made numerous times, 

Things were going very well until this step. This is where I should have checked the recipe.  Instead of adding only 3/4 cup of frosting to the cake crumbs, I added the entire can. Ooops!  I thought the balls seemed a bit sticky when I was rolling them.  I had planned on chilling them overnight, so I put them in the refrigerator and went to bed.  The next morning, I realized my mistake when my cake balls were still super sticky.  I took a bite, and immediately had a sugar buzz!  They were still edible, but instead of cake pops, they are basically frosting pops. covered in chocolate.  I will be trying this recipe the correct way, and will hopefully be posting it within the next week.
