I recently learned that not everyone really understands all that a cake pop is supposed to be, so I am here to clear the air and give you my best tips and tricks to getting the perfect pops!
First off, what are cake pops? They are essentially little cake truffles where the filling is crumbled up cake mixed with frosting, and then they are dipped in chocolate. That is what a cake pop is supposed to be- so do not fall into the marketing trap of those little "cake pop maker" machines that encourage you to spoon cake batter into their George Forman-rip off countertop contraption that'll just give you little doughnut hole-like balls of cake. And while cake doughnut holes sound delicious, that is not a cake pop.
So the next question you might be asking is well okay then what is the right way to make a cake pop? I'm glad you asked, buckle up it's time to learn!
I hope this post has cleared the air of any cake pop misconceptions or helped you root out any errors you might have been making! From this day forward may all of your cake pops be poppin'! (I'm sorry I had to.)
