True. Which type of frosting do the use, is it sugar  or butter based?

Looking at cakepops has gotten me hungry for  arraksballs, a  recipe that been here for a long time, it  made with homemade cake  crumbs, butter , apple sauce , coco powder and flavourings and rolled into a ball and then eaten. 

No stick in these, that would  only be in the way, since their destiny will be my tummy.  NOM!

Of course we'd make it all from scratch.  Most of the "recipes" I see on our food main page are not really recipes at all, using prepared foods and canned goods and mixes.  But the ideas for decorating the pops are fun!

Yes they are cute   but still nah for me and oh the cake didnt fail  and well J started eating it as it was and  I never manage to make arraksballs.  

But the big problem for me when it says take a tub of  frosting, I dont know if it is  sugar based or butter based or milk based.

Use any frosting you want!  I think I would try this with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting.  Peanut butter would make a good "glue" and frosting.  The frosting I make most is butter cream, which can be dressed up any way you like it.
