I saw a pic somewhere of cake pops...on a lollipop stick...can some one tell me a little more about it...
are they like cake balls on a stick? I gound a thread here on cakeballs but still have to read through the pages of info..and the first few pages talk more about flavor then how to actually make them...

so my questions are

-how do they not slide down the lollipop stick?
- is it basically a mixture of crumbled cake, bc icing, freeze them, and dip in melted chocoalte?

I make cake balls but haven't made any on sticks. Have seen them on here though. When you make the cake balls you add enough icing and mush them together pretty good. This makes them pretty dense and sturdy. If you mold them around stick I'm sure they would stay. Plus the chocolate they are dipped in make a hard shell around cake ball. HTH!

I just tried this myself yesterday. I made cakeballs and froze them and rolled in chocolate. I dipped the lollipop stick into the chocolate before sticking it into the cake ball. This kept them from falling down the stick.

Bakerella also has a really good quick tutorial on amazon dot com on the page for her book about cake pops.

Thanks!!
I really want to try this out! Looks so yum!!
Can we use any icing...as in the canned one? Or is that too soft?

I used a frosting I made - peanut butter buttercream - but I think any frosting will work.

I found if your cake is moist you do not need to mix in icing or flavored creamer or anything for a binder. It made my cake balls mushy, nasty, wet, yuk! But without it Pretty Good

I agree with sugaah. I used only a small amount of frosting, mostly to give it peanut butter flavor. I think it would have worked without any.
