I guess it was about seven months ago when I bought a Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and really enjoyed how easy--and quick--it was to make a batch of cake on a stick. Or without a stick! I didn't seem to care that I was taking the easy way out and didn't really feel that I was missing anything by having never made cake pops the original way. And then I attempted to make strawberry cake pops the original way . . . bake a box of strawberry cake mix, crumble it, add strawberry frosting, roll into balls, insert stick with a little melted chocolate on the end, freeze for a short while, and then dip into melted chocolate. What a major flop that was! Of course, it was after the flop that I read of a measurement of frosting to add to the crumbled cake--1/2 cup--and I had used the whole stinkin' can! After that, I resumed using the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker when I wanted a little sweetness, but I decided that I *had* to try the original method once more after my husband and son treated me to a Tiramisu cake pop from Starbuck's on our way to the beach last month. O.M.G. That was Heaven on a stick, I tell ya! On Thursday, my sister, nephew, son, and I took a day trip to the mountains where I purchased some chocolate-covered Espresso beans, and I made these cake pops last night. Success!!!! They are soooooooooooooo yummy, and I think they look good, too! I know that I don't have to tell on myself, but my guys literally cringe when they hear me mention that I want to make anything tiramisuish. And there's a good reason for this. Several years ago, I decided that I would make Tiramisu. I didn't realize that I had done anything wrong until the dessert was a disaster. I started reviewing the recipe and . . . BAM! (hand slaps forehead) . . . I had poured in a whole bottle of Rum flavor. While mixing the ingredients, I read the correct ingredient but the wrong measure. I remembered measuring 1/4 cup of Rum flavor and wondered why the recipe didn't just say to pour in the whole bottle since that's how much it took. Of course, the recipe called for a fraction of a teaspoon! I might never live down the Rum flavor, but my Tiramisu cake pops got high-fives from my guys!
