Bake your favorite cake recipe – If you are just making cake pops, one box of cake will make about 30 cake pops (all 1.25 inches in diameter – think ping pong ball size.) You can also take all the tops from a decorated cake, yesterday’s cupcakes, or even a store bought cake! Just crumble and knead it down until it is a pliable dough. (consistency of Play-Doh) You can do it by hand (you also will need a bit of frosting this way), but it is faster if you just put your cake into the mixer or food processor and leave it in there until it turns to dough (if you are mixing the cake this way, you only need frosting if you want to add some extra sweetness or a special flavor).
…if you don’t make cake pops often but you still would like to make them faster our newest “Mini” Easy Roller is now available – it rolls 9 at a time! Once all your cake is rolled into balls dip them into melted candy melts (place the candy melts in a microwave safe container and place it into the microwave on 50% power (or defrost) for 1 minute, take it out of the microwave and stir. Put the bowl back in the microwave at 50% power, in 30 second increments until fluid)!
Tap off the excess and place them on wax paper until the chocolate sets.
Next, microwave about an ounce of white candy melts (on 50% power, in 30 second increments) until fluid and pour it into a sandwich bag. Then cut off the tip of one corner.
Draw a line vertically down the front and the back:
Then you just connect these lines in a “c” shape:
Continue until you have no more room!
Next connect them on the other side:
Then Make the “sternum” a little thicker where they meet and Enjoy!!
