these are so amazing and super straightforward in method. Anyone who says they're too complicated is crazy! Time consuming, yes, but not consecutively. alot of it is just waiting/refrigeration, etc. For someone like me with a toddler who wont let me be for more than a few minutes, I loved that about this! i spread out making them over 2 days, but if i hadn't done them super fancy decorated, i could have made it one day. For my first try, i went all the way and did the cupcake cake-pops from Bakerella.com. I knew not to add all the frosting, but i did anyway, and that became my only mistake. they were WAYY too squishy inside when they were all done, but they still tasted amazing!! I will listen to advice next batch. Alot of the advice given in these reviews is good, but some is not necessary. I agree it was easier to blend the frosting + cake while slightly warm....it wont affect the end result if its mushy while warm. Also, pops/balls do NOT need to be frozen solid before dipping, but it definitely helped having them well chilled. if you do the pops, i highly recommend using Wilton's candy melts instead of real chocolate w/ shortening. I used both, real chocolate for the bottom of the 'cupcake', and red candy melts for the top. the real chocolate never got super hard, and the candy melts taste + look GREAT. way better than the bark at the store. Plus they come in awesome colors! I cant wait to do these again, and try out some new shapes/colors. I brought them to a bake sa
