Tips and Tricks

1. If you’re using a cake mix, be sure to add an extra egg to the batter to make the cake pops more dense and easier to work with.
2. Once the cake is baked and cooled, crumble it into fine crumbs using a food processor or your hands.
3. In a bowl, mix the cake crumbs with 1/3 to 1/2 cup of frosting until combined. The amount of frosting you’ll need will depend on how moist your cake is.
4. Shape the mixture into small balls, about 1-inch in diameter. If the mixture is too sticky, chilling it for 30 minutes will help.
5. Place the cake balls on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until firm.
6. Melt candy melts or chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl according to package directions.
7. Dip a lollipop stick into the melted candy and insert it about halfway into each cake ball. Be sure to work quickly so the candy doesn’t harden before you’re finished insertiong all of the sticks..
8. Dip each cake pop into the melted candy, using a spoon to help coat evenly if necessary. Tap off any excess and place back on the wax paper-lined baking sheet..
9 Detailing can be added at this time by piping on additional melted candy melts with a piping bag or ziplock bag with a small hole cut in one corner..
10 Allow pops to set completely before serving..
