Step 1: Cake Pop Supplies
Step 2: How to Make Cake Balls
Start by making cake balls that you will apply to sticks later to turn them into pops. Follow the directions for making your box cake mix, making one alteration. Use half the amount of vegetable oil.
Let you cake cool completely and then crumble it into fine crumbs with your hands. You may want to cut off any hard edges of your cake first.
Add a small amount of frosting to your crumbs and mix with your hands. Continue adding frosting until the mixture becomes the consistency of Play-Doh.
Take a small amount of mixture and roll the mixture in your hands to create cake balls.
Step 5: How to Turn Your Cake Balls Into Cake Pops
Melt your candy melts in the microwave.
Dip a lollipop stick into the melted coating and then into a cake ball. Set the cake pop in your cake pop stand until the chocolate hardens.
Dip each cake pop into the melted coating until it is completely covered. Tap any extra coating off of the cake pop gently.
Set your cake pops aside to let the coating harden or while the coating is still wet decorate your cake pops with sprinkles.
