Cake Pops

{Kelly's cake pop glamour shot}

I helped host a baby shower this weekend and I decided to attempt cake pops. I know this have been a trend out there for awhile, but they are just so dang cute. My sister and I fun making them, but this was definitely a messy project.

You will need:

boxed cake mix

16 oz frosting

lollipop sticks

parchment paper

chocolate to melt


Bake your cake and let completely cool. Crumble baked cake into large bowl and mix in 3/4 of frosting, until sticky. Roll into ping pong shaped balls.Place rolled balls onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and chill in fridge for at least 15 minDip sticks in melted chocolate and place in chilled cake balls about half way in; chill again about 20 min. Dip cake balls into melted white or milk chocolate and decorate immediately. I used a flower styrofoam frog to let them dry so that they kept their shape.

And store in the fridge until party.

{Side note: I never want to see another cake pop as long as I live. I'm so over it, not that they weren't delicious, but it was such a mess, I had cake and frosting in some strange places.}

They might have been a lot of work but they are really cute. I'd love to have one right now. I'd like a carrot cake and cream cheese frosting dipped in white chocolate as long as I can't have one I might as well dream big.
