I had a bunch of cake pieces leftover from Audrey's birthday cake so I decided to try making some cake pops. Whoa. Waaaay harder than I anticipated. The problems I encountered were numerous but I think they mainly stemmed from the consistency of my "batter." I ended up adding too much frosting. They weren't cake-y they were more like wet, frosting balls. Due to this issue the balls fell off in the chocolate coating even after being frozen onto the sticks. Does anyone know how much frosting Bakerella calls for? I searched her site and listened to her how to video on YouTube.
Regardless of my troubles I managed to crank out a dozen or so pops. My girls and nieces each had one and then I threw the rest away (wasteful). The cake part just had too much frosting.
The strange thing is I'm quite eager to try them again. I saw another video of a woman who makes her cake pops out of doughnut holes. Quite clever if you ask me.
Have you tried making cake pops? Any tips? Any idea on how much frosting to use?
