AIf any of you come to New Orleans please do yourself a favor and go to Haydels Bakery and try some Russian Cake. It is amazing and better than any cake pop I've ever had...even mine lol. If you tried it, you would understand. You can only get it in the New Orleans area and this was long before cake pops as we know today existed...however those are amazing as well. Just wanted to share. Here's a little bio on it and picture:

Russian cake is one of those #onlyinNOLA desserts. It is made with pieces of leftover cake that have been combined, reformed, mixed with raspberry jam and food dye and rebaked.

An old-fashioned favorite. The cake dates back to 1872 when the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras. We combine crumbled gold cake, devil’s food cake, and almond cake all mixed with raspberry jelly, rum flavor and a hint of anise, topped with homemade butter cream icing. Very rich and moist, this is sure to please the palate.

AI have seen several recipes for other types of Russian cake, but never this one. Where did you get it if you don't mind me asking? I haven't googled for one in a long time though.

Russian Cake is a classic bakery product sold throughout the US. It's formulated to use unsold excess cakes, pastries, and sweetbreads. To increase revenue, a bakery uses their own "recipe" that relies heavily on a changing variety of day-olds. Most bakeries press the mixture into sheet pans and sell Russian Cake by the slice. Your Cake Pops sound like a fun, interesintg variation!

That's really cool to know! I'm a huge fan of Russian cake, so I'm going to keep a look out for it when I travel :-).
