Add Frosting and Mold Method

1.Prepare batter from a boxed cake mix of your choice. (We used Pillsbury moist supreme chocolate) Prepare by following directions on the back of the box.
2.Bake batter in a 9 by 13 tin at the time and heat given to you.
3.Let the cake completely cool while covered so moisture doesn’t escape the cake.
4.Use your hands to crumble the cake into a semi fine crumb texture.
5.Add frosting of your choice starting with half of a container; use more if needed.(We used Duncan Hines creamy chocolate frosting) You will find the ideal consistency as moldable and not too sticky or dry.
6.Form the moldable mixture into ping pong sized balls and place them on a baking sheet with foil (for easy clean-up)
7.Set the balls aside and melt your choice of candy melts in the microwave for 10 second intervals stirring every time.(Can add shortening if to thick)
8.Add a bit of candy melts of your choice to the end of a cake pop stick and place in the center of each ball so that they are upside down.
9.Place tray in freezer for 5-10 minutes so candy melts can harden. This will make the pops secure while you dip them.
10.Now dip the cake pops in the bowl of candy melts. DON’T spin the cake pop or it will fall off of the stick. Dip in the center of a deep container just to the top of the cake ball and take it out at an angle.
11.Lightly tap off excess candy melt and set in a foam block so it is standing straight up so it can air dry.
12.After about 20 minutes they will be completely dry and you can add a bit of drizzle in a different color or take a bite!

Cake Pop Maker Baking Method

1.Begin preheating your cake pop maker for as long as the instructions say.
2.Prepare batter from a boxed cake mix of your choice. (We used Pillsbury moist supreme chocolate) Prepare by following directions on the back of the box.
3.Spoon into the molds to the top and bake for as long as instructed.
4.Set the balls aside and melt your choice of candy melts in the microwave for 10 second intervals stirring every time.(Can add shortening if to thick)
5.Once cake pops are no longer warm add a bit of candy melts of your choice to the end of a cake pop stick and place in the center of each ball so that they are upside down.
6.Place tray in freezer for 5-10 minutes so candy melts can harden. This will make the pops secure while you dip them.
7.Now dip the cake pops in the bowl of candy melts. DON’T spin the cake pop or it will fall off of the stick. Dip in the center of a deep container just to the top of the cake ball and take it out at an angle. (This kind is much lighter)
8.Lightly tap off excess candy melt and set in a foam block so it is standing straight up so it can air dry.
9.After about 20 minutes they will be completely dry and you can add a bit of drizzle in a different color or take a bite!

Cake pops cooling, before being ready to have sticks put on them

BLAKT staff had West High students sample these treats and vote on which is better. The majority voted that the ones made with frosting were more moist and had better flavor.
