    Cake Pops

    A few weeks ago I tried my hand at making cake pops for the first time. I used too much frosting so they were a little too sweet. I left some plain with no frosting and served with strawberries. I dipped the others in vanilla candy melts. Dipping is no easy task. I think I did okay for a first timer. I'm trying it again this weekend.
