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.
