    I think the main difference is that no-bake have this decadent fudgy consistency, where as bake ones taste just like really tiny cupcakes.  I am obsessed with cake pops from starbucks which are more of your no-bake variety, so that’s my vote!

    I just made 300 cake pops for my cousins wedding. The no-bake ones ar more work, but BY FAR the better option. Otherwise you risk your cake pops being dry and bland.

    I would not make the ones that you bake.  The best thing about cake pops is that they include the icing mixed in.  So definitely no-bake.  I don’t see a reason to buy that baking tray, you’re just making regular cake.  Cake without icing is not worth it to me, I wouldn’t eat it.

    I think they’re delicious but I don’t make them because I find them to be too tedious.  And I decorate my own sugar cookies so that’s saying something because many people would consider doing those to be tedious!

    I had some good fall flavored ones, one was a pumpkin spice I thought was pretty tasty.

    Definitely the no bake (: I think the other ones could end up being dry or just taste like mini cupcakes. The no bake ones have a better consistency and taste a lot better.

    I have never made them but we had them at our wedding! They were chocolate and soooo good!

    Wish I had more baking skills, I’d definitely attempt it then!

    @AndysCraftsNmore:  I’ve actually never had a cake pop- I must be the only person who hasn’t! Judging by the descriptions though, I do believe the no bake is the safest option as you have control over moisture/consistency.

    seems like the bake ones would not have icing, and the icing is what makes it good.

    They are kind of more of a pain that you would think.

    But take that with a grain of salt because the only time I made them (no bake variety, which is kind of a weird name for it because I had to bake a cake to crumble up with the frosting) I made them look like mini sheep. It was involved.
