I broke down. I broke down and bought a cake pop maker. I know. I know. What was I thinking?!
Turns out I was thinking that this thing is pretty cool. I used a box cake the first time I tried it, just to see how it worked, and it made over 75 little perfectly shaped ckae balls. And the best part is that it made each dozen in about 3 min. The baking is extremely quick, but it is the decorating that can make this project more time consuming.
Cake pops are a great project to do with kids. Austin and I had a great time making these halloween cake pops. He especially like the mummies...and they tasted great too!
