The first time I had a cake pop was at my friend Jennifer’s wedding last year. Since then, cake pops have exploded in popularity, and they can now even be found at your local Starbuck’s. Not only are they cute, they’re also perfectly moist and perfectly portioned for when you just want a little something sweet. Best of all, they’re surprisingly easy to make. (Thanks to my cousin Denise for the cake pop tutorial!)
2. In a big bowl, use your hands and mash the cake, mixing in 1 can of frosting as you go. If you’re using an already frosted cake, no additional frosting is needed. The consistency should be mashed-potato like, only stickier. Like you just mashed an entire cake up and threw in a can of frosting.
And if you don’t want to bother with lollipop sticks, or if you didn’t chill your cake balls long enough and they fall off their sticks completely, you can make cake truffles instead of cake pops. Really, they taste just as good 🙂
