Heartie Party #2

Cristina and Kristina are showing you how to get ready for your “When Calls the Heart” viewing party by cooking up Cake Pops. When it comes to sealing the edges of the pops, she recommends using egg wash. When crimping the pop, dip your fork in flour first so it doesn’t stick to the dough. Kristina also points out that this would be a perfect recipe to do with children, as well. After 10-14 minutes of baking, you will have the perfect Heartie Party cake pop. While eating the cake pops, Kristina takes the time to answer some fan questions from the audience.
