Cake pops are a whimsical sweet treat for a party, and for your friends or children to snack on. These creations are easy to make and since they do not require an oven, once you have the cake baked you can let your children help. Make the cake pops using your favorite cake flavor and then decorate them any way you want so that they coordinate with your party theme or simply your favorite colors.
Things You'll Need
Bake a 13-by-9-inch cake. Do not frost the cake and allow it to cool completely before moving on.
Crumble the cake into a large bowl. Gradually add frosting, mixing it into the cake crumbs until you have incorporated the entire can.
Form the mixture into balls the size of your choice and place onto a wax paper-covered baking sheet.
Insert lollipop sticks about halfway into the balls. Cover the tray of cake pops and place them inside the freezer for about 1/2 hour so that they can firm up.
Place white chocolate discs inside a small bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and melt the discs. Check the candy coating often, stirring the discs to help them melt evenly. Remove them from the microwave when they have melted and are smooth.
Place some sprinkles onto a plate.
Dip a cake pop into the candy coating, covering it completely. Let the excess drip off of the end.
Roll the cake pop in the sprinkles. You can cover the entire cake pop in sprinkles, or only the top.
Place the end of the lollipop stick inside a piece of polystyrene foam so the candy coating can harden without damage.
