Not every cake is going to come out of the pan perfect, and sometimes we just want something more manageable than a whole slice of cake. As a fun alternative, you can make Cake Pops!

Crumble entire cake into very small pieces with your hands

Mix in Cream Cheese Glaze until you have a nice dough of a workable consistency

Form 1 – 1 ¼ inch balls with a cooky scoop or your hands

Roll the cake balls in granulated sugar since they will resemble meatballs

These are delicious since you get some cake, icing, and the sugar with each bite!!
