Vanilla and Chocolate Cake Pops

While making 3D cakes, you get a lot of cake crumbs and pieces. While I prepared the Pongal Pot Cake, there was a lot of cake and butter cream left over after the completion of the cake. The next day holidays started and I couldn't do any thing with it. I just placed the cake and the crumbs in a zip lock bag and refrigerated it. Today, I took them out in the morning and brought them back to room temperature. Preparing cake pops is quite interesting. My daughter is a great fan of these chocolate coated beauties. I prepared cake crumbs by grinding the cake pieces in mixer grinder, added the remaining icing to it and made a crumbly dough. Then I shaped it into balls, refrigerated them, coated them with chocolate and decorated with melted chocolate. My daughter came home to find these delicious cuties and was so happy. She couldn't stop munching it. I have to stop her from polishing the dish off.
