Cake Pops...from cake crumbs or use molds?

C885fa2f 0ce2 48c1 b907 1a2da911b2a8  cakepops

I have made cake pops using the round cake molds and they turned out great. However, I recently viewed a video that made them from cake crumbs. Has anyone tried making them with the crumbs? If I recall they used frosting mixed into the crumbs to hold the mixture together. Wouldn't this be too sweet? I use melted chocolate to coat them and roll them in sprinkles. Seems like a lot sweetness with double frosting.

I've had the cake pops made from cake crumbs and they're sooooo sweet. Not my cup of tea. But those with a big sweet tooth will love these.

I agree, waaay too sweet. And: Why?

I've seen recipes where they used cream cheese to hold the crumbs together. So the only added sweetness would be the chocolate outside.
