Need to get on the (cake) ball!

It seems in the last couple of weeks, everywhere I click around the Internet there is a mention of cake pops or cake balls and people, I have never had either and that's just not right. 

I will confess that my favorite part of cake is the FROSTING but I'm seeing these delicious looking little cake snacks everywhere and I WANT IN!

It is mind boggling to read all of the reviews of this pan or that pan for making cake pops/cake balls or this gadget or that meant to make "the perfect cakepop".  I just want to EAT some before I get to trying to MAKE some but haven't been able to figure out where to start.  I mean, I suppose I could give in and order one at Starbucks but honestly, I think they are $1.50 APIECE and I just can't justify spending that much money on one, maybe two bites of cake. I've never in my life had cake that was worth $1.50 per bite.

People are starting entire cake ball/cake pop BUSINESSES.  Are there really people out there who will pay for tiny tastes of cake? Seriously, people like this are getting $29.00 for 12 cake balls.  That's almost $2.50 APIECE.  And these are cute, but wow! $24 for 6...

I guess that the original cakeballs were cake that was crumbled and mixed with frosting then formed into balls and dipped in chocolate. Oh. My.   How is it that I have never in my life had a cakeball? I need to fix this. I need to fix this NOW.  And so... I am on a mission... I hope a delicious mission. I will find some cakeballs and devour them (in the name of research, of course).  I hope to not have to pay $2.50 apiece for the priviledge, though! 

Off now to get my labcoat (because you need a labcoat in order to properly conduct research).  Have a stellar weekend!


  1. Do you have to have a special pan, or do you squish them together with your hands?

  2. @lgalaviz-I think if you make the original cake balls (the crumbled cake w/frosting) then you do them by hand but there are special cake ball/cake pop pans. I don't care, just GIMME!
