These cake pops have exploded through the internet. Whether you call
them cake balls, pops or cake bites, they can be made easily and can
be decorated beautifully.
Decorating them is the fun and creative part. I'm no designer of
these fun cake bites but I'll show you how easy it is. I've also
included a few instructional videos including one from
Bakerella.com, the queen of these little bites.

Cake Pops Step By Step
How to Make
Baked cake either homemade or from scratch *see below for some combo
1/2 can frosting or 1 cup frosting
Candy melts or chocolate bark
Bake your cake and allow to cool. In a large mixing bowl, crumble
your baked cake into small crumbs. Stir in frosting.
Dough should be moist enough to form into balls. You can add a
little more frosting if needed. Line a cookie sheet with waxed
paper. Roll dough into balls about the size of a quarter. We use a
small scoop to form balls.
Place on cookie sheet. When all balls are rolled freeze for 30
Melt candy melts in a bowl in the microwave. Stirring every 30
seconds until completely melted. Poke a fork in a cake ball if you
want just cake bites or insert a lollipop stick if you'd like pops.
Dip in the melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper.
If youd like to add a drizzle on the top melt a different color of
melts or use white chocolate. Place melted chocolate in a plastic
bag with the corner snipped off or a pastry bag. Working quickly
drizzle each ball with chocolate. Freeze or chill for a few hours.
