Cake Pops!

I've been wanting to make these for awhile, and Erica's birthday celebration gave me the perfect excuse!  If you've never had them, they are essentially balls of cake on a stick!  Here's how you make them:

1) Bake a cake using a box mix--follow box instructions. {I forgot to take a picture of this step.}
2) Crumble the cake and stir in 1 can of store-bought frosting.

3) Roll into balls.

4) Freeze for a couple of hours (this will allow them to stay on the stick better), insert stick, and dip in melted candy melts.  {Didn't really take a picture of this step either.)

5) Decorate as you please.  Stick in styrofoam and allow to dry.

I decided to individually wrap them since I'm taking them on our girls' trip this weekend, but you wouldn't have to.

The great thing about these is that you can play around with different kinds of cake and frosting!  I used vanilla cake with cream cheese frosting because that's what the birthday girl requested!  All of the supplies (sticks, wrappers, etc.) came from Michael's.  I can't wait to make these again!

  1. So THAT'S how they're made! Great instructions and pictures, and now I'll have to try them some time this school year. Thanks.
