Starbucks has begun serving cake pops and it’s got the baking community up in arms. The pops are made by crumbling fresh cake and mixing the crumbs with frosting, then forming them into a ball and placing them on a stick. To make them pretty they’re dipped into a colorful candy coating and they have caught on like wildfire.

Believe it or not they’re quickly overtaking cupcakes as the “must-have” item for baby showers, weddings, and birthday celebrations and some baking traditionalists are worried that cupcakes will become extinct.

I worry that now I have even MORE temptation….I will have one of each please!

    I really hope not. I have a friend who makes cupcakes from scratch and they’re fricken awesome. She’s gonna make cupcakes for my wedding instead of cake.

    These are nothing new, my friend has been making these for years, minus the stick and calling them cake balls. They are delicious, but different from a cupcake. I don’t think they could replace them.
