Friday Finds - The Dilemma

Today's find has become today's dilemma....

I have seen cake pops online for a while now and then recently saw them at a market. It has been in the back of my mind to make some, but it wasn't until just before Halloween when I saw these super cool cakepops on Bakerella's website that I became more inclined to actually make some.

I hate spiders, but these are adorable!

 I checked online for recipes and found that they are super easy (in theory) to make, with lots of people just using a cake mix and ready-made icing (frosting), then coating them in melted chocolate (this bit sounds the trickiest). 

However, one thing I wasn't so keen on was the sticks - they just seemed to be a bit of a waste. After all, the cake would be gone in just one bite. Simple solution there - just don't use a stick! I looked around online some more and of course there are loads of ideas out there for cake balls.

But still nothing was made - I needed further inspiration. Funnily enough, this came in the form of a recipe for truffles. The recipe was from the 4 Ingredients Christmas book and included Oreos and cream cheese. Delicious! After looking at this, I thought I would have a look online for different recipes and here are a couple that I found, kind of in keeping with the whole cake theme.

Big mistake. Now I am hungry and I can't decide what to make! This will be my project this weekend. I will let you know how it goes!

  2. Now you have made me hungry too:)

  3. Those cookie dough truffles look AMAZING!!!!!!

  4. Oh yes, I'm hungry! Mouth watering...
    Sometimes the stick makes them harder to make, so it's actually easier without them! Oh, and hint: You can also try Brownie Bite Pops (they're good too)!
