Cake Pops are the latest rage in the cake world!! Boy, don't they look like simple creatures? NOT!! These suckers, when made correctly, are highly labor intense. That's why, folks, they don't come cheap! Ya, ya, they have those pop cake machines, blah, blah, blah! But that certainly is not the way to make authentic Cake Pops. Not for this decorator, anyway.
To be made properly, one must: make a cake, break it up in a bowl, add frosting: the exact right amount of frosting, mix together by hand, roll into balls: all the same size, add a chocolate dipped lollipop stick, freeze, dip in chocolate/candy melts, decorate, dry in a block of Styrofoam, slip a cellophane bag over each one then tie a ribbon around the cellophane and stick of each one. WHEW! I am exhausted just thinking about it! LOL
Anywho, in theory, each one is so rich and flavorful that it is a complete single serving of dessert. For some people, I suppose :)
