DELECTABLE LIL' GOODNESS CAKE POPS

 

  • Cooking Time: 25
  • Servings: 3-4 dozen
  • Preparation Time: 20

Ingredients

  • First you need a design concept (Very Important for knowing what kind of decorating supplies to get!)
  • Cake mix (or homemade)Frosting (or homemade)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • The Wilton Melting Pot
  • Candy melts
  • Candy melting flavoring
  • Sprinkles
  • Styrofoam to stand them up in
  • Bake cake and allow to cool completely (about one hour).Cut cake in fours. To crumble cake, either by rubbing the sides of the cake or use the mixer method we used, in large bowl and add frosting.
  • Put cake mixture in fridge and chill for10 - 30 min or overnight. Shape dough into balls or press into favorite cookie cutter. Melt candy coating according to directions on bag. For flavoring our Cherry Bites we used 1/4 a teaspoon + added 5 drops We started with the recommended, but test tasting, it seemed to need more. And we're not Cherry people! Go figure!
  • Dip end of Popsicle stick in candy melts, about half inch and insert into cake ball. About halfway, you don't want to go any further. Allow to harden in refrigerator for about 10 min. This will help the cake to stay on the stick. After you take the pops out of the refrigerator allow 2-4 min before you dip into the candy melts as to prevent cracking and dry upside down. At this point you can add decorations.
  • Have fun and enjoy!

Notes

Laura and I made Cake Pops for her high school youth at Immanuel Lutheran Church. What !?! You haven't heard of them !? ! Oh, they are everywhere lately! the latest trend in dessert culture. Even Starbucks has gotten in on the trend. Check them out,they are so cute !

The first I heard of these delectable lil' goodness in almost one bite, was from one of my favorite blogger Bakerella. She is the queen of Cake Pops! She has book specially for Cake Pops . Awesome creativity she has, please keep her in your prayers as she just had a kidney transplant the last week, her Mom was her donor. Thankfully all is going well and she's home now recooping. When I first saw these cute lil' cake pops, I was dying to try them...but since I'm an Empty Nester, limited & trying to eat healthier, I haven't had the chance. My Sister-in-law , Lisa couldn't resist and shared it with Laura, who is hooked on Cake Pops! Lucky for me, Laura and I reunited and made Funfetti & Cherry Chip (requested by some, we found out our family are not huge cherry fans ) So, here's our experience making Cake Pops, which were a huge success, especially the Cherry Chip! Who knew!?!
