Cake Pop Practice Cake

I love a challenge. Recently, a family member asked me if I would make a Cake Pop cake for her wedding. Having never made one, I told her I would have to practice. I love practicing because it broadens my horizons and gives me the chance to try new cake flavors, which my family loves! This time I made a Chocolate Peanut Butter cake. It is delicious. Very moist. It made really great tasting cake pops.

I tried two techniques. I "glued" the cake pops on the cake with buttercream and I tried sticking them in with the lollipop sticks. Both worked. I was also thinking I might try sticking them on with corn syrup. I'll do that next time. I really need to work on making the balls a consistent size, but, other than that, it worked! Yay!
