Cake Pops!

Good Afternoon Friends!

I'm sure most of you noticed my hints at a cake pop tutorial last week. Well here it is!


One box of cake mix {I used funfetti}
One container of frosting
Candy melts
Lolly pop sticks or skewers
Double boiler pan or pan with heat proof glass bowl

1. Bake your cake according to the box directions. Let it cool all the way or overnight.

2. Crumble up your cake into small pieces in a very large bowl.

3. Mix in the whole container of frosting. You can use your hands or a spatula for this part. 
Hands is obviously more messy fun. Then refrigerate the mixture for at least one hour.

4. Use a small cookie/ice cream scoop to make roughly 1 inch diameter balls.

5. Melt your candy coating in your double boiler.

6. Take a cake ball and dip a small portion of it in the candy coating; 
then put a lolly pop stick into the area with coating. This will help hold the stick in place later.

7. Do this to several cake balls at once so the candy coating has time to harden.

8. I didn't put any sprinkles on this part of mine because I was taking photos, but you definitely can.

9. Once the candy coating around the stick is hardened dip the rest of the cake ball in the candy 
and cover thoroughly. Then blast it with sprinkles quickly so they will dry to the coating.

10. Find an object with holes about the size of your lolly pop sticks to hold them upright while they dry.
I used my steamer basket, but I'm sure you could use a colander or a foam block as well.

That's it! Now go eat cake to your heart's content!
