Hi guys! These Valentine’s Day cake pops are super adorable, and I’ll share with all my secrets to super smooth candy coating for easy dipping! I love the taste of cake pops too — they taste like a super moist cake to me! Have fun mixing and matching different sprinkles and colors of candy coating while making these, and they would be a great addition to any Valentine’s Day party! Enjoy, and don’t forget to share your creations with me on my Facebook page (http://on.fb.me/14LNQ1d)
Makes 12 cake pops
Half of a 9″ x 13″ cake
1/3 cup frosting
Candy coating in various colors
Optional: EZ Thin candy thinner (purchased at Michael’s), shortening, or canola oil.
1. Crumble cake into fine crumbs. Add in frosting and combine.
2. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out cake balls and roll into a ball with your hands. For heart-shaped cake pops, flatten out the cake ball and form tip into a V-shape. Then use your pinkie finger to create an indent at the top. Make sure it’s still about 1 cm thick to insert your lollipop stick into! Refrigerate the finished cake balls for 20 min.
3. Melt your candy coating in the microwave on low power, stirring every 20 seconds. Dip your lollipop stick ½” into the coating, and insert into your cake ball.
4. Mix in 1 T. EZ Thins, shortening, or canola oil to thin coating. Dip cake pops into coating, and immediately decorate with sprinkles if desired.
