If you’re afraid to commit to cake pops, Oreo pops (like these featured on makoodle) are reported to be an easier alternative. Instead of baking a cake, then destroying your perfectly good cake to turn it into multiple spherical cakes on sticks, you can just stuff a stick into a pre-made cookie and skip straight to the chocolate dipping and sprinkles sprinkling!
Well, in theory. Instagrammer @monelleus found it to be slightly more difficult than it sounds.
If it’s any consolation, our experience here at CraftFail is that things would have been WAY WORSE if you’d gone with cake pops anyway. They’re not going to win any beauty pageants, but I’m sure these were still tasty – after all, you’ll never mess up a cookie too badly by adding more chocolate!
