I first saw this recipe over on the awesome bakerella.com and thought I would give it a try. I was very happy with how these yummy red velvet cake pops came out. They are very easy to make and look spectacular too. You will get at least 40 balls out of a 13×9 cake in fact I got 45 exactly if I remember correctly. You can make them bigger if you like but I think the quarter size ones are a nice bite size and you can ration them out easily. Be warned the kids will devour these if you let them so I suggest hiding them (like I have to do with most treats in this house) so they last longer and there are actually some left for you. Talking of kids I have a baby shower early in the new year and these are going to be just perfect for that and maybe even Thanksgiving.
