What are cake pops made of you might ask?
Cake pops are made from baked cake and frosting all mashed together until you get a dense, shapable dough that can be formed on a stick and dipped in chocolate.  The variety of flavors are as limitless as your imagination. Mine were made of Cherry-Chip cake and a tub of vanilla frosting. Others did chocolate and chocolate, and others yet did all vanilla.  You can even make cake pops from well-ground cookies and cream cheese. Our group’s favorite was Oreos. A few girls used Nutter Butters. They all tasted scrumptious!
How to make cake pops
Some key steps:
- The ‘dough’ MUST be chilled or things will fall apart quickly.
- To hold the cake on the stick, dip it in chocolate before attaching the cake.
- Make space to refrigerate and chill your cake pops as you work with them.
