Tips for making cake pops
If you don't have a food processor, you can crumble the cooked cake using a fork instead
This recipe asks you to refrigerate the cake pops before dipping them in chocolate - do not miss this step! It's much harder to roll them if the mixture isn't cold enough.
If you don't have a styrofoam block to stand your cake pops in as they dry, use a thick carboard box instead.
Cake pops as gifts
Because they are so versatile, cake pops make wonderful gifts (you could create white ones with blue sprinkles to give after the birth of a baby boy, for example).
To make them look really special, why not pop a few into a lollipop treat bag? You can then secure it with a pretty bow that suits your theme!
