Catherine Grisez is a Seattle artist known for her ability to turn seemingly intractable sheets of metal into forms so full of life that they appear to flow, swell, pulse, or grow.  Perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that one of her hobbies involves giving form and personality to another challenging material: cake.

The process of creating cakepops, as I understand it, goes something like this:
   bake a cake
   pulverize it
   use frosting to glue the bits back together
   form the mix into balls
   jam in a stick
   dip in chocolate
   decorate to the full extent of your artistic ability.

Finally, kick back and enjoy the fireworks as grown women tussle over who gets the cutest cakepop.
