Party Favor: Lemon Cake Pops

Do not be intimidated by their cuteness. They are, in fact, pretty easy to make, and a great favor for showers or birthday parties. 

Here is a basic cake pop how-to that will give you a nice base to work from for any future cake pop endeavors. 

Ingredients: – 1 cake (make in a 9 x 13 pan as per box directions) – 1 cup frosting (homemade or from the can both work) – 1 bag white chocolate chips or candy melts (found in cake section of craft store) – colored sugar or decorations of your choice – lollipop sticks (found in cake section of craft store) – 1 piece Styrofoam (found in craft stores)

Yields: 40-50 cake pops. For a smaller batch, only use half a cake and half cup of frosting. Freeze other half of cake for later use. 

Step 1: Mash up your cake with a fork or your fingers. Make sure it’s completely crumbled.

Step 2: Mix frosting into crumbs. Although the recipe calls for one cup, use your judgement. The consistency should be like cookie dough when you are through mixing it all up.

Note: For this recipe, I used a white cake mix and added lemon extract and a can of Betty Crocker Homestyle Lemon Frosting.
