            I was wondering where one might buy the sticks to make the little pops out of them?

              The doggie cake balls were cute too. Good pictures on that site. At first I thought that cabinet was full of spices and then I read where it's soil/sand collection from all the places travelled, how cool.

              There's a candy'confectioner store near where I live and they would sell the sticks. Maybe shish kabob sticks would work if there isn't a store around for others?

                I can find sucker sticks in the craft dept of the local Wal-mart.

                I am going to make some cakeballs for Thanksgiving, I think. I have been meaning to try them. That would be as good a time as any.

                Bakerella, makes some of the cutest cakeballs I have seen.

                      CAKE BALLS

                      • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
                      • 1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting ( I used Duncan Hines..not whipped)
                      • 1 (16 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating or almond bark (many people said more than16oz is needed)

                      1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl (into tiny crumbs) and stir in the frosting until well blended.
                      2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water,(or a double boiler) stirring occasionally until smooth.
                      3. Use a melon ball or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for several minutes to make dipping easier. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.

                      NOTE: This recipe is very versatile and heavily addictive. You can mix and match cake and icing flavors as well as the chocolate coatings. If you want to go the extra mile, cake balls can be rolled in nuts, sprinkles, coconut, etc. or double dipped in white and dark chocolates. Chocolate confectioners' coating is also called Almond Bark in some stores. If the balls are not frozen/cold, your finished product will not have a smooth coating. It will be lumpy and full of crumbs. These are easy enough that someone who doesn't cook can make them without difficulty. Many people commented that they taste like donut holes, only better.

                      Variations/flavors:

                      • White cake mix and mint chocolate chip icing - Dipped in chocolate confectioners coating.

                          Mine turned out beautiful. I covered some with white chocolate and some with milk chocolate and I also tried melting some colored white chocolate to tint the regular white. The tinted chocolate didn't turn out well as it doesn't turn into a liquid chocolate but is moldable.

                          I then streaked the white with brown and vice versa.

                          Needless to say, as a diabetic, these are not for me. However my co-workers will enjoy them.

                          Although the recipes state that the cake should be completely cool before crumbling, I found slightly warm helped the icing to incorporate quicker.
