How to Make Cake Pops

We are having friends over for Easter dinner tomorrow night, & I had a hankering to have cake pops on hand. Weeks ago, I stumbled upon the blog, Bakerella…she is one talented lady.

  4. They look awesome!!! I've never met a cake pop I didn't love :D

  5. These look great! I did my first batch of cake balls a few weeks ago and they were a disaster because of the stick not staying in place but I'm going to try again with the melted chocolate on the stick first. I love that idea.
    Thanks!
