Something Sweet For The Weekend

I absolutely adore cake pops...
Do you?
They are always the biggest hit at parties
and everyone is always requesting them.
They come in all shapes & sizes...
Here's a sampling of a few...

Here is the recipe taken from the cake pop queen herself...Bakerella. I prefer CK chocolate colored wafers rather than Wilton. I think they work better. I also use a small ice cream scoop to keep the balls the same size. Happy Baking!
1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can frosting (16 oz.)
Wax paper
Yellow candy melts(1 lb. pkg.)
Lollipop sticks
Edible ink pens

After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. (I use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. But, be warned, it will get messy. Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so start out by using almost the entire can and add more if you need to.)
Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
Place in a styrofoam block to dry.
Once dry, draw faces with an edible ink pen and allow ink to dry!
