Sometimes, the fun in a cake pop lies in the engineering. How do you get cake to hold a shape? How do you get angular shapes to come through on smooth chocolate? I love racking my head, and very often the first cake pop or two is thrown in the bin as a reject because some ideas just don’t work out.
These fireman hat cake pops were for a little boy turning 3, and were well loved, says the mom who wrote back after the party.
