Today started off kind of slow. It was nice outside, then rainy, and finally stormy. That made today a Cake Pops kind of day. Earlier today, I made a simple sheet of white cake and let it cool. Then I made some butter cream frosting. Two key parts to this recipe. So what to do next.
What you need:
- Cake- any flavor (baked and ready to use)
- Frosting- simple vanilla will do
- Candy Melts- Any flavor you like
- Lollipop sticks- 1 pkg. of 50 or so is enough
- Sprinkles- Green and blue are my main colors
- Large bowl
- Styrofoam (for cake pops)
- Parchment covered cookie sheet
What to do:
- Cut the cake into four pieces.
- Grind one piece against the other over a large bowl. Repeat with the two remaining pieces.
- Add about a half a cup to a third of a cup of frosting and mix well. Depending on the amount of cake you may need a bit more, so add some in small increments of 1/4 of a cup or less. I didn’t use all of it but I made plenty.
- Once this is done, use a spoon to scoop out small portions of the mix and roll into a small or medium sized ball. Repeat this until you run out of cake mix. Place on parchment covered cookie sheet.
- Place in Freezer for 15 Minutes. Then remove and place in refrigerator.
- Melt candy coating (candy melts) as directed.
- Remove cake balls from refrigerator and place a lollipop stick in each one. Dip in candy coating. DO NOT STIR OR MOVE AROUND TOO HARD. THIS WILL CAUSE THE CAKE BALLS TO COME LOOSE.
- After dipping allow the candy to drip into the bowl. If the coating is still too thick, gently tap your wrist using your free hand. This will help get rid of any extra candy coating.
- Add sprinkles or choice of coating.
- Then place each lollipop stick in Styrofoam to cool. Once cooled, it’s ready to eat. You can cover in candy paper to save or just eat.
Hope this recipe was delicious and helpful. ^_^ ENJOY!
