I made the cheesecake pops with my 18 year old daughter and we had a great time. We made the cheesecake the day before without any problems and had a blast decorating them the next day. We finished 2 trays of them and had some of the softer center of the cheesecake left so I used it as a filling for a lemon strawberry bundt cake that I had made the day before. The cheesecake pops were cute and delicious and we kept them in the freezer for a cool, frozen treat. This was a true challenge as it is not something that I normally would have made. I thank you for this opportunity to participate and look forward to the next challenge.

Beautiful with all the different colors! Your creative use of the soft center of the cake was brilliant too.
