So... Let me start from the beginning. I started out to make what seemed to be easy cake pops, minus the stick. So I guess cake balls. Easy steps to the recipe. Bake a cake, break apart into a bowl, mix frosting into cake, refrigerate, melt candy chips, make cake into balls, use toothpick or fork to dip into melted candy chips, and cool on wax paper. So what happen? I am hoping for some reader input. Has anyone had experience making these and they turned out right? I have seen them done on other blogs and they looked great. So I am thinking some little step I missed would have done the trick. My final photo is not so impressive. The cake balls slipped right off the toothpick, so that was not the best idea. When I used a fork, I could not get them off the fork. So in the end to try and salvage my project I tried to add more candy coating to cover up the bare spots. Looks, not so much. Taste, really good. Before I make my next attempt I am hopeful that someone will have some in site to this craft I clearly have not got figured out:) They say third time is a charm, but I am crossing my fingers for round two.
