Thanks to Bakerella, I have a new obsession.
Have you heard of them? Apparently, this craze is sweeping the nation. I made cake balls last Christmas based on a recipe on AllRecipes.com. People loved them. When I heard about the cake pops, where you take the already-delicious cake balls and put them on a lollipop stick, I was sold. Within a few weeks of making my first batch of actual cake pops, I started seeing cake pop ads everywhere. My whole office went from not having a clue what I volunteered to bring for the Thanksgiving luncheon to being inundated with ads for cake pop makers lol. The pops are soooo cute! How could anyone resist?
Lots of people stand their cake pops up in decorated styrofoam. In the past week, I've seen way overpriced custom built cake pop stands but just the other day A.C. Moore had a cardboard cake pop stand for around $5.99. You can also set them up on your grandma's finest serving platter or on a silver (colored) tray from the Dollar Store and they look just as classy ;-)
