Colorful Cake Pops

My kiddos love cake pops. I thought of making them for my little ones birthday to surprise her. I didn’t know how much work they were. Angie Dudley of Bakerella was the first one to create these and now many bakeries offer them. There are numerous videos of her showing how to do simple cake pops. I thought it was pretty straight forward and got to work.
They turned out pretty good. My DS was the first one to get home and see them. He was very excited. After he had a bite he said, “Mamma, they are like the ones that we get at Starbucks” I asked him, “Which one do you like better?” **Trick question to any guy**. He slowly said, “I like these ones, coz they are homemade and tastes better”. **Ding ding ding. Correct answer!! I have a ladies man in the making **
As for the birthday girl, when I told her I made them to celebrate her birthday, she first made sure that she is also getting a cake for her party and then hugged me to say “thank you for the cake pops mommy. I love them”. Awww, they made my day!!!
Prep Time: 30 min. | Cooking Time: 45 min. | Resting time: About 2 hrs. | Yields: 50 cake pops.

Sponge Cake Mix (9X12 pan) – I used strawberry cake mix
Frosting – 8 oz – Used store bought        
Chocolate Bars/ Almond Bars
Paper Treat Sticks
Foam blocks wrapped in plastic wraps (so you don’t get them onto your cake pops)

Method of Preparation:

~ Prepare a simple sponge cake. If using a cake mix, prepare according to directions on the box.
~ Let it completely cool before you move on to next step.
~ Crumble cake in a large bowl. Add frosting and mix them well to form dough. Do not knead; just mixing them together is good enough.
~ Cover the mix and put it in the refrigerator to chill for about an hour.
~ Take the dough out, make small balls out of it and put them on a wax paper.

Cake balls rolled up
~ Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in microwave.
~ Dip the stick edge into chocolate and then poke them into the cake ball. Do not push in all the way.
~ Do this to all the cake balls.
~ Now start dunking them all the way into the melted chocolate. Coat it completely and take it out. Tap gently to remove excess.
~ Top it with sprinkles or any kind of decoration you want.
~ Poke it on top of foam and let it dry. Repeat this for all cake balls.

~ It usually will dry in about an hour.
~ Wrap them individually if needed
