Using a cake pop pan is baking cake in a ball shape . I use the cakepop pan more for making children's treats and decorating .
There is one or more threads on cakepops .You need to read the tips from others and follow the directions that came with.the pan for best results.
To get the sticks to stay in its best to stick the pops in the fridge for a few minutes after inserting before dipping them to.coat whole ball.
What do you mean with cake balls are like truffles? I have seen other posts talk about cake truffles and I have never understood what that is. The truffles I make are ganache either rolled in cocoa powder, or coated in chocolate. Are there other truffles?
I have never made cake balls, but became interested when I saw these pans. I assume cake balls made with cake crumbs and icing end up being overly sweet, since they are so small and then on top of being mixed with icing also gets coated with a sweet icing (or candy?).
Anyone who has tried both ways, are the cake balls made from the cake ball pan less sweet since it's "real" cake rather than crumbs?
MikiChu- the batter you used for the cake pops, have you had good results from that same batter for regular cakes or cup cakes? Then it would be strange that this particular size or pan make them chewy.
