Cake Bombs! Little explosions of sweetness!
I invented these when I had left over rainbow cake mixture from the cake pops I made. I didn't want to just eat the left overs and I didn't want to waste it either. I added some chocolate covered popping candy into the mixture for something different. In hindsight, I should have added it to the mixture from the beginning for the cake pops too, I'll remember for next time.
I had some bright coloured mini cupcake liners/patty cases so rolled small balls of cake mixture (to cover the base of the liners) into the liners and dropped a teaspoon(maybe more!) of chocolate onto the top of the ball. I then sprinkled popping candy and sprinkles on top. They looked super yummy and cute. As these are smaller, they are a great treat to have if you don't like super sweet things and also if you are worried about calories and trying healthier treats for your party (portion/size control). Also there is not need for lollipop sticks. The popping candy gave the cake a zing! I call them cake bombs because I think they are the BOMB!! No seriously, they explode with yummy goodness in your mouth and the popping candy pops as you chew!
