Cake Pops.... Sorta.

Okay, so I'll tell you right off the bat.... My cake pops are NOT perfect like 99.99999% of every cake pop I've ever seen on any and every blog... BUT, I found the solution!!!

You Will Need:
  • Box of Devil's Food Cake
  • Candy Melts of Your Choice
  • Shortening
  • Frosting
  • Veggie Oil Spray
  • Veggie Oil
  • Foil
  • Styrofoam
  • Candy Sticks (I bought them at Michaels)

First, you will make a cake as you normally would. Following the directions on the back of the box. 

Okay, here is where I messed up!!!! When the cake is fully baked, you have to let it cool COMPLETELY. Either by putting it in the fridge or freezer to quicken the process. It takes quite a while to cool. I got too anxious and I crumbled up the cake while it was still warm so that totally ruined my cake pops perfect shape circular shape. So, PLEASE, make sure you allow it to cool completely!

When your cake is completely cooled, crumble it all up using your hands. Then you will add the frosting and mush it all up. The frosting makes it extra yummy and holds the cake together. 

Then you will roll your the cake in your palms to the size of your choice. You don't want to make them too big, because they will fall off the sticks. 

Next, melt a bag of candy melts. Don't leave the melts in the microwave too long or they will taste gross!!

Now, dip a candy stick in the melted chocolate on the very tip, and push it into a cake pop. Stick the cake pops into the styrofoam to harden for a bit. Take your spoon and drizzle the chocolate all around it.  Place it back into the styrofoam when you are done. 

They should turn out super cute and not lumpy like mine did! Hehe!

They still tasted delicious! They just weren't perfectly shaped!
