How to make cake pops

Cake pops are a whimsical way to make a sweet treat for a party,
your friends or children to snack on. These creations are easy to make
and since they do not require an oven, once you have the cake baked,
you can let your children help. Make the cake pops using your favorite
cake flavor and then decorate them any way you want so that they
coordinate with the party you are throwing or simply your favorite colors.
Difficulty:
 
Moderately Easy

Instructions





Things You'll Need


  • 13x9-inch cake
  • Can of frosting
  • Large bowl
  • Spoon
  • Baking sheet
  • Wax paper
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Freezer
  • White chocolate candy discs
  • Small bowl
  • Microwave
  • Sprinkles
  • Plate
  • Polystyrene foam
    • 1
      Purchase or bake a 13x9-inch cake to make your cake pops.
      Do not frost the cake and allow it to cool completely before moving on.
    • 2
      Crumble the cake into a large bowl. Gradually add frosting,
      mixing it into the cake crumbs. Continue adding the frosting until
      you have incorporated the entire can.
    • 3
      Form the mixture into balls the size of your choice and place onto
      a wax paper-covered baking sheet.
    • 4
      Place lollipop sticks about halfway into the balls.
      Cover the tray of cake pops and place them inside the freezer
      for about a half-hour so that they can firm up.
    • 5
      Place white chocolate discs inside a small bowl.
      Place the bowl in the microwave and melt the discs.
      Check the candy coating often, stirring the discs to help them melt evenly.
      Remove them from the microwave when they have melted and are smooth.
    • 6
      Place some sprinkles onto a plate.
    • 7
      Dip a cake pop into the candy coating, covering it completely.
      Let the excess drip off of the end.
    • 8
      Roll the cake pop in the sprinkles. You can cover the entire
      cake pop in sprinkles, or only the top.
    • 9
      Place the end of the lollipop stick inside a piece
      of polystyrene foam so the candy coating can harden without damage.
