Mackenzie and I made cake pops last week. Well, we tried, anyway. I think my cake was a little too moist and once the icing was added, it was way too moist to stay on the stick. I also, think the chocolate bark was too heavy for cake pops and maybe the balls were too big. I know it sounds like I'm saying everything was wrong, but I think/hope my theory is right. They kept trying to come off the stick, so after about 6 or 8 pops, I made just plain cake balls for the remaining cake.
Mackenzie helped lick the bowl after we mixed the cake and icing. I think she liked it! ;)
Although they didn't turn out quite they way I had planned, they were still delicious! Next time I will use the candy melts and a different cake mix and hopefully, they'll be even better. I think I also need to make the cake pops for a special occasion and not just because I want to. Other than the friends we had over the day after we made them, no one else ate them except us. Read mainly me. I think I seriously ate half of the 38 cake balls/pops in the week that they were in our house! :/ It's a good thing I'm still walking on the treadmill every other day!
