Cake pops – individual bites of cake, on a stick. All of the flavor, none of the fork washing! They’re all the rage on Pinterest, like the chocolate peppermint cake pops by A Cup Of Mascarpone seen here. But these pretty pops are just the tip of the iceberg – one peek at Pinterest and you’ll see cake pops that look like watermelons, or popcorn, or cowboys (?!?), and some so pretty I’d be afraid to eat them.
So reader Anna wasn’t alone when she tried what she’d seen a thousand times on Pinterest, but ended up with baked scoops of cake that turned out to be not exactly Pinterest material.
Too bad her cake wouldn’t stay on the stick, and her candy melts wouldn’t stay stuck to the pop! Oh well, they might be lumpy and drippy and bald in some spots, but you know what we say: the nice thing about food fails is that at least you can eat the evidence.
