Are you a little surprised at the title to this post? I mean really, cake pops for breakfast?! Oh yes you can! Cinnamon Streusel cake pops (or cake balls in this instance) are perfect for breakfast…but then again I’ve never been opposed to a slice of cake for breakfast every now and then. (Oh, no worries, I won’t tell anyone if you’ve done that too!)
So these delightful little Cinnamon Streusel cake balls are so delicious. They are made with a cinnamon coffee cake mixed with your choice of vanilla or cream cheese icing. Outside is a vanilla candy shell and these little breakfast treats are topped with a sweet brown sugar mixture. I bet you can’t eat just one!
I took these on my Girl’s Trip to the beach this summer and they paired perfectly with a strong cup of coffee. They didn’t last long with my girlfriends!
Now’s the perfect time to savor these cake balls; cinnamon always brings out the coziness of fall and reminds me of the fast approaching Christmas season! Need me to make you a batch? Contact me at AnneRains@gmail.com for more information.
Well, sadly summer is almost over! Or actually, scratch that! I had a wonderful summer but I’m tired of the scorching heat and ready for the cool, breezy temps the fall brings…along with the rich colors that Autumn brings!
Summer was full of fun though; for one it was the start of my cake pops craze! I made so many cake pops this summer that I’ve begun to loose track! Some of the first ones I made were Beach Bum cake pops that I took to our Family Reunion in Navarre Beach, Florida.
These little guys cost me several precious hours to make but turned out so stinkin’ cute (and YUMMY of course) that it was well worth the time!
So, what do you think? Did these little guys turn out “beary” cute or what? Each teddy had a swimsuit drawn on (afterall, we weren’t at a nude beach!) and a face painted on…some I’m not gonna lie, they seem to be saying “Help me! I’m about to drown!” LOL! Regardless of their facial expressions, they were delicious and were consumed in no time. (P.S. Cake pops are delicious with a big bowl of ice cream, just sayin’.)
This is a picture from the Navarre Beach trip. Of course we did the classic khaki and white pictures that everyone seems to do these days! We did these in the morning when the beach was less crowded and boy was it sunny…the squinty eyes just couldn’t be helped!
Ok, well I hope you had a delightful summer as well. Oh and if you have a cake pop need…shoot me an email. AnneRains@gmail.com
