midnight snack

Christmas is over..time to play with new toys!  i have been wanting a cake pop maker ever since i tried Starbucks' birthday cake cake pops..which had become a weekly occurance! ...i was surprised to find out this little babycakes cake pop maker can make donut holes as well.. i tried the sour cream donuts recipe off their website found here ...and the vanilla glaze recipe found in the recipe book that came with the maker....the instructions said to fill the wells with two tablespoons of batter.. the first batch overflowed..i filled it a little less on the second and third batches and those turned out better..trial and error... i glazed them and sprinkled with powdered sugar.. they reminded me more of a pancake or funnel cake than a donut.. but very very tasty! and addicting! the babycakes cake pop maker comes with a fork tool and a syringe for fillings.. here is the recipe for the vanilla glaze:

1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 to 2 1/2 tbsp hot water

Combine melted butter and confectioner's sugar, stirring until well blended. Stir in vanilla. Blend in 2 tbsp hot water and stir until smooth. Add a little of the remaining hot water, if needed, to make a thin glaze consistency.
