First, a bit of truth. I’m not a cake pop fan. There, I said it! It’s out in the open. I just never understood why I’d want to take my perfectly fluffy, delicious cake and smash it up into a paste?!? I love the fluff factor! I like my cake light and airy. One bite cake, one bite frosting, some bites together. I like options. And to chew my own food.
I do have to admit, they can be cute. And I am a sucker for all things tiny and delicious. Which is why I was relieved when cake pop pans started appearing in the baking aisle. I don’t break that pan out too often though, so I’ve been trying to find new ways to use it.
Much to my pleasant surprise, half of a cake pop fits perfectly on an empty ring pop. Awesome! Cake pop rings are fluffy, cute, candy-coated, and easy enough to make with kids.
I just opened a bag of ring pops and tossed them into a bowl of water to soak off the candy. (Maybe minus one for me.) In hindsight, I should have smashed up the candy part and saved the broken pieces to decorate my pops. I could have also saved them for another project, like these candy jewels.
