Have you ever eaten or made cake pops?
We love cake pops. But they are such a PITA to make that it doesn't happen very often. DD's softball "big sister" got hurt recently and DD wanted to include cake pops in her get-well package. So we made some last weekend. I rememebered then why we don't make them very often. They are really hard.
No I havent
Philip's mom got the boys a cake pop kit for Christmas, and I have made them once. The baking part isn't so bad, it'sthe decorationg that isa PITA!!! They taste pretty good though!
no and no.

Eaten them? Yes, several times. I have had a couple students give me one, and I think at church coffee hour.
Made them? Heck no
Yes, Daisy, that's the method I prefer. I do have a cake pop maker my mom gave my DD, but they are better with the icing mixed in. You bake a sheet cake, crumble it up, mix in a half a thing of icing and roll it into balls. You can mold that into any shape. We then melt candy melts (which I have only found in stores like Michaels) and try to get the candy evently rolled onto the pops. Then you have to mount the stick (who will be the first to comment on that!?) with the candy stuff. Then you get one of those styrofoam blocks to push the sticks into, evenly distributed, so they can dry. Time consuming and a pain.
Oh, I've never heard of them madelike that Tracy!
We have this kit(or one similar)
looks like a real PITA to me! Wouldn't eating a piece of cake be a whole lot easier? lol
I did some purusing around the Internet. The icing mixed in the prepared cake is the traditional way to make them. Looks like the makers came along after they started getting popular. I do think they taste better with the icing in there. This is identical to the ones I made last weekend. DD wanted triple chocolate, which was good for me since that's far from my favorite flavor so it was easy for me to pass on them.
When they say "THAT'S IT," I am thinking more like "I have to do all of that??" They are good though.
