Lemon Cake Pops from Scratch

Rating: 4 stars 1
These are really yummy cake pops that my kids love. If you don't like things super sweet, you can just mix the cake with cream cheese instead of frosting. Store in the refrigerator.

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake Pops

Rating: 3.5 stars 2
Ice cream cake on a stick, crunchies and all! The shell coating against the cake part of the ice cream sandwich gives it the most amazing texture. It's not thin and brittle like normal chocolate-coated pops, but more like the inside of a Carvel® ice cream cake. Assorted toppings (I like crushed Oreo's®!) add crunchy texture and the cake warms a little so it's a perfect contrast to the cold ice cream. You just have to try this, no dessert could be easier! Kids would have fun making these but adults alike will enjoy eating them.

"My family made these last night and decorated them today. It does take a long time! But we made a chocolate cake version at the same time, and the cheesecake balls were easier [by far] to shape and keep together on the stick." – inspir8tion
