Lazy Pops

Cake pops are such a hit right now, a cake that is easy to serve and looks like a decoration. The genius that came up with this idea is the woman that created Bakerella, a wonderful site with sweet recipes and ideas that I use all the time (thank you). But recently I discover a short cut, and when I feel lazy or short in time, I use my new kitchen gadget called baby cakes. It is a little machine that bakes the cake batter in a pop shape. Once the little balls are baked (takes 4 minutes each batch) and cooled, they are dipped in melted chocolate and decorated with candy, sprinkles, or painted using food coloring pens. It brings up a smile even on those who don't care for sweets.
