Instructions
  1. Bake the cake as instructed in whatever pan you want. Want brighter cake? Add food coloring to the batter.
  2. Crumble the cake into a very large bowl – feel free to use your fingers if you’re the messy type, I prefer a wooden spoon.
  3. Add spoonfuls of icing to the crumbs and mix. Don’t go too nuts here – too squishy will fall off the sticks. A regular box mix doesn’t need even ? of a container of frosting. Cakes that are naturally more moist need even less. The only way to know it’s ready is to roll a tight ball – if it is crumbly add a small spoonful of frosting again and stir.
  4. Roll into balls tightly with your hands. For special occasions, you can also shape the balls into different shapes (footballs, squares, eggs, etc).
  5. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze. This is especially important if you’re putting them on sticks later.
  6. Finally, finish however you like. If you want them on sticks, push the stick into the frozen ball no more than half way. If not on a stick, use a toothpick to dip or set on a tray to top. Drizzle with thinned frosting, dip in melted chocolate, sprinkle with powdered sugar – whatever your pleasure. For mine pictured here, I used melted white chocolate chips, tinted blue with Navy Blue Oil Color (available at your supply store).
Recipe Notes

Use cake and frosting that will blend to an appealing color/flavor combination (My favorite combo is chocolate cake and fudge frosting. For the blue cake pops, I used white cake with blue food coloring added to the batter and vanilla frosting)

Do not buy “whipped” frosting
