Have you ever eaten or made cake pops?
Wasn't it someone here who used to make cake balls? Maybe someone on one of the defunct boards.....
Cake balls are cake pops without the stick. I have also seen them called cake truffles (but that is no fun). I think she served them in mini-cupcake cups. I would never mess with the stick. Of course, it is unlikely I would ever make the cake truffles, either... managed to avoid it so far!
I have had a couple of different cake pops that students have brought me. Meh.
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.
looks like a real PITA to me! Wouldn't eating a piece of cake be a whole lot easier? lol
Oh, I've never heard of them madelike that Tracy!
We have this kit(or one similar)
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.

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
no and no.
