But when I went to get the instructions for how to make the actual cake ball part, everything I found seemed time consuming, and if you wanted it to work out right, you needed to buy special equipment, (pans, bakers etc). I was a little disheartened and almost moved on to something else.
Then I had a brilliant beyond brilliant idea.
Donut-holes. They are round, they are ready, and they are yummy.
So we shimmied off to Tim Horton's, bought a box of timbits, and came home to produce these fun little confections:
Granted, mine isn't as cute as the one I found online, but that is more a reflection on my own cake-pop decorating skills than the cake-within-the-pop. I totally recommend skipping the baking and using donut-holes.
Trust me, you'll thank me for this one.
