Reviews for Raspberry Truffle Cake Pops
"i thinks it looks great."
"In a word, disappointing."
"My first try at cake pops and this recipe worked well. I used chocolate cake instead of white because I had cupcakes leftover from a batch made the day before. I also omitted the liqueur and added a little extra jam instead. And I used homemade buttercream frosting instead of canned."
