Since seeing Bakerella's website, I've been wanting to make cake pops. Since then, it seems I've been hearing about cake pops everywhere. Last weekend, I finally took the time to make them.
They're pretty easy, but they look (and taste) awfully impressive! This batch was Red Velvet cake with vanilla frosting (I thought I had cream cheese frosting and didn't realize it until I was ready to make them).
Basically, you bake a 9x13 cake; and when it's fully cooled, you crumble it into a large bowl. Mix in enough frosting to make a dough about the consistency of sugar cookie dough - too little and everything won't stick together; too much and everything will be really sticky! Form into balls, refrigerate until a little more firm, insert lollipop stick and dip in chocolate.
There are definitely things I'll do differently next time, but I'm pretty happy with my first attempt!
