I really love to make festive cakes, but they NEVER get eaten at parties. I can go the extra mile and make these super cute cake pops and poof they ate a whole cake and didn’t know it. Anytime you can make something bite size people are more prone to eat it. I started running out of time and didn’t want to make them all eyeballs so I decided to make them have ghost faces too. Bakerella uses Styrofoam to dry her cake pops, but my secret is to use a colander. I added it to the directions below incase you forget that trick.
(Adapted from www.bakerella.com)
1 box cake mix
1 (16 ounce) can frosting
1 pound package candy coating
Cook and cool cake according to box directions.
Mix thoroughly with can of frosting.
Roll mixture into balls and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet.
Melt the candy coating.
Dip the tip of the lollipop sticks in the coating and then insert in the balls.
Refrigerate the cake pops until firmed up or place in the freezer for a quicker time. Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Remove and softly tap and rate until the excess chocolate falls off. Place in a Styrofoam block or colander to dry.
Once dry, draw on faces with edible markers. You can also stand the cake pops up to dry if you don’t have a way to display them the other way.
