I still get giddy every time I eat a cupcake. The ritual of slowing peeling back the wrapper and savoring each bite is not something that will ever waver, regardless of whatever new confectionary creations arise. However, there's something undeniably adorable about cake pops - balls of cake (mixed with frosting!), dipped into a layer of candy melts, all served on a little stick. I followed these instructions, but they were a lot harder than I anticipated (the balls weren't round enough, or they would fall into the coating, or just come out all goopy and lopsided). Ultimately I was able to salvage a few that looked and tasted just right - especially with the addition of a few (edible) glittery stars.
