Tips

Cake Pops-using a food processor

Cake Pops-using a food processor

Bake any cake mix according to package directions. Let cake cool completely.Break the cake into pieces and put them in a food processor with the slicing or dough blade. Process at a steady speed, not pulsing.The cake pieces will eventually turn into a dough-like ball. If the cake is dry and not forming the ball easily, you can add buttercream icing a little at a time. Since the cake ingredients have been completely cooked, it it safe to mold the 'dough' into balls, dip in chocolate, nuts, or sprinkles and leave at room temperature to serve.
