Decorating them is the fun and creative part. I'm no designer of

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 you'd 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.
Serve. If you'd like to add sprinkles add when chocolate is still
