My friend's daughter tasted cake balls for the first time in April. She looked at me and asked, "Can you make these for my birthday. It's in June".
I asked what her favorite color was and she said, "blue and purple".
You can dye the cake batter to be any color, in this case I made it blue. Bought blue and purple chocolate melts at Michael's. I also bought a terra cotta pot, a styrofoam ball and candy sticks. I found that you can use a turned over colander to hold the sticks while the pops dry. I'll take a photo of that next time.
Took about 2 hours from start to finish and I think it was one of my favorite gifts to give.
