Ingredients


Baking Instructions

  1. Bake cake as directed in a 9"x 13" pan and let cool completely.
  2. Crumble cake up into a large bowl.
  3. Soften frosting for 10 seconds in microwave. Add frosting to crumbled cake and stir with a fork until frosting disappears and is completely incorporated into the cake crumbs. Test your mixture by picking up a handful and squeezing it together. It should hold together without breaking apart.If mixture is too dry, add more frosting.
  4. Roll mixture into walnut-sized cake balls and transfer to a wax paper lined baking cookie sheet. Make sure balls are tightly packed and look smooth with no cracks. If they appear cracked, you may need to add more frosting.
  5. Transfer cookie sheet with cake balls to freezer or refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Place 16 oz. of the white chocolate candy melts in a small, deep microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring each time until completely melted. The melted coating should coat a spoon but still be able to slowly drip off. If coating is too thick, add shortening or vegetable oil ½ tsp. at a time. Do not exceed 2 tsp. per 16 oz. of candy coating or the cake pops will crack.
  7. Remove cake balls from freezer. Dip tips of lollipop sticks into candy coating and insert sticks no more than halfway into center of your cake balls. Let them set for 1 to 2 minutes, resting on the cake ball, sticks in the air.
  8. Pick up cake pop by the stick and dip into candy coating. Gently tap stick against side of bowl and rotate cake pop to help excess coating fall back into bowl. (Reheat and/or melt more candy coating as needed.)
  9. If decorating your cake pop, add your sprinkles, nuts or candy right after dipping, before coating dries.
  10. Poke stick of cake pop into Styrofoam block to stand up straight and dry completely, about 5 minutes.
  11. Notes:
  12. Make sure your styrofoam block and all sprinkles, nuts and decorations are ready to go before you start dipping your cake pops. The candy coating hardens within a minute, so you have no time to lose!
  13. For decorations, check your local craft store or baking aisle at the grocery store for colored sprinkles nuts and candies. You can also use M&M's, chocolate chips, colored sugar, or coconut. If you want to draw on your cake pop, you can buy decorating pens. They work like markers but are food safe, with edible ink.

Tips

Coconut Garnish

Coconut Garnish

Toasted coconut makes a light, crunchy garnish. Spread coconut on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for about three minutes. Stir and bake one to two minutes longer, or until golden brown.


cake freshness

cake freshness

when I have baked the appropriate layers for wedding or occasional cake, once the cake is turned from the pan I immediately wrap tightly with several layers of aluminum foil and place in freezer. I find that the hot moisture freezes within and once frosted in the frozen state it thaws to a very moist, fresh consistency.
