Buying a birthday-gift for a foodie must be the easiest job in the world. You just need to walk into some cook-supply store and pretty much anything on the racks a foodie will love. I think it is with this mantra that my friends/family bought me birthday gifts.
One of the things I got was Bakerella's Cake Pops Kit. Having never made cake pops before, this kit is the perfect starter's guide. It features Bakerella's book 'Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats', candy sticks, labels, bags and ribbons to make and decorate your cake pops.
The book I got is written in Dutch so I can't write the recipe down here for you, but the recipe I followed Bakerella has posted on her blog: click here for the recipe.
