Leave it to Soccer Mom to volunteer to make 100 cake pops for my sister’s friend’s graduation party. While I was skeptical of how much work this would entail (read: how much I was going to have to help), it turns out that making cake pops is actually surprisingly simple. And fun.
Cake Pops are crumpled cake mixed with icing which is rolled into balls which are dipped into chocolate. Follow?
Soccer Mom has this book by Bakerella for Cake Pops. The instructions are great and easy to follow, the tips are beyond helpful, and the ideas/inspiration are out of this world.

Using the girl’s theme of pastel colors, we dipped three different flavors of cake into the chocolate coating.

This is just a few of the 99 we ended up making. One “broke” and we had to, you know, do quality control to make sure they tasted perfect. And they did!
Oh, and they’re yummy. Really, really, really yummy.
