Most of the time I really like making things myself and not using processed food, especially when it comes to anything I can bake or cook. However, there are the times when it's just cheaper and quicker to buy the cake mix in a box and call it a day! My daughter picked out a Fun-Fetti cake mix with frosting for Valentines Day (I thought "how sweet she's baking a cake for the family!" after all, she is 18...as she reminds us almost daily :) Unfortunately she had plans on Valentines Day, so guess who ended up making the cake... I made the cake but I was also doing 3 other things and forgot to check on it until the timer went off and by that time it was a little over baked...I hate dry, over baked cake...so there was only one thing to do...make cake pops! Luckily my son was here to help me roll, dip and sprinkle. These aren't hard to make but they are just a little time consuming. So this is the impatient, easily side tracked person way to do it.
Here's what you need:
- box cake mix, follow the instructions on the box to make and bake it
- container of frosting, or you can make your own, but for these, the canned frosting works really well to hold the balls together.
- almond bark or chips to melt and dip them into
- Optional: sprinkles, food coloring, lollipop sticks, etc.
