The growing popularity of cake pops

2 Oct

Cake pops have hit Ireland with a vengeance. I’m seriously feeling like I’m out of touch lately — I was listening to one of my favorite programs on NPR, “This American Life” the other day (catching up from an old podcast from over the summer) and they were talking about how Bubble Tea and Vietnamese Sandwiches have swept the U.S. – whaaaat???  I felt so out of it!  Seriously, I track trends as a part of my daily job — how could I miss this?  Well, that’s how I feel about cake pops.  It seems like just in the past couple of weeks that they’re everywhere.  And now that I’m aware of them, I realize just how out of touch I’ve been! 

Anyway, loved the cake pops from “The Choux Box” – red velvet being my favorite.  And check out the Pop Stars post on Bakerella.com — so many creative ideas.  Makes me want to have a party just so I can make some Cake Pops!

Here’s a quick recipe to try if you haven’t made them yet – we can do this!
