You may have never heard about Cake Pops... if this is true, I think this Instructable is perfect for you.
But if you did heard (what is more likely)... Well, still I think you might be surprised by this Cake Pop recipe (even if you already know another one)... why? Because it is an adaptation of a cake family recipe that EVERYBODY (family and friends) loves.
I made these Cake Pops for a small wedding, so the name Something Blue Cake Pop.
But... What is cake pop?
well, It's a small-round-cake, usually on a stick and covered with chocolate... It's basically a lollipop-cake.
Wow, a round cake? What?!
Yeah, a round cake, but I'll explain you how to do it in the next steps! :)

1. Add little quantities of cream to the crumbled cake, and mix with your hand. Keep doing this until the to form a dough that is similar to cookie dough. Not too dry, not too wet.
