March 2018 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Vanilla Naked Cake

We’re creating beautiful rustic style naked cakes this month. The change of seasons has been my inspiration in the kitchen lately and this recipe reflects it all– incorporating fresh flavors, fresh flowers, and springtime colors!

Let’s Review the February Baking Challenge

February 2018 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Chocolate Cake Pops

A little intensive, but fun. Kids love them, they’re party ready, great for sharing, perfect for Valentine’s Day, 100% from scratch. I loved seeing the creative ways you decorated and packaged your cake pops this month. I’m thrilled with the participation in February!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Jan:

“Made the chocolate pops for my fellow teachers. I can hardly wait to give them to them tomorrow! They look so great.”

We gathered as many chocolate cake pops photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to guarantee your photo will be included!)
