  5. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 5 5

    Put your baked cake in a large mixing bowl.

  6. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 6 6

    Use your hands to crumble the entire cake.

  7. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 7 7

    Add about 1/2 of the package of chocolate frosting to the crumbled cake.
    The chocolate frosting is what acts as a glue to hold the cake balls together.

  8. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 8 8

    Now its time to get dirty.
    Use your hands to mix the frosting evenly throughout the crumbled cake mix until the cake mix is well moistened.

  9. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 9 9

    Your cake mix should be moist enough to shape into a large mound and keep its shape.

  10. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 10 10

    And if your hands don't look like this, then you're doing it wrong {lol}.

  11. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 11 11

    Roll your cake mix into 1 inch balls using the palms of your hands.

  12. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 12 12

    You should be able to get 35-40 cake balls from a single batch of cake mix.




  13. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 13 13

    Now we prepare the chocolate shell. Pour one entire package of white chocolate candy melts into a microwave safe bowl. Follow the melting instructions on the package. *Be sure not to burn the candy melts or they will taste super yucky*

  14. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 14 14

    Pull out your melted white chocolate and stir thoroughly with a spoon until COMPLETELY smooth. Once smooth, add a large spoon full of shortening {Crisco} to the white chocolate to thin out the consistency a bit. Stir thoroughly again.

  15. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 15 15

    Take a cake pop and dip into the white chocolate about 1 inch.

  16. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 16 16

    And then place it into the center of your cake ball.
    This will act as a glue keeping your cake pop and stick attached.

  17. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 17 17

    Then place your cake pop in the Styrofoam to harden.
    Continue with the remaining cake pops.

  18. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 18 18

    Now you are ready to coat your cake pops in the delicious white chocolate.
    This is the most tricky step of the entire recipe. It took me some practice before I was good at evenly coating the chocolate on the pop.

  19. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 19 19

    The key is to place the pop in the chocolate at a sideways angle with one hand. Using the other hand, spoon the chocolate mixture all around the pop. Try to do this as quickly as possible before the chocolate begins to harden and get lumpy.

  20. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 20 20

    Once you have evenly coated the pop, gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl to get off any excess chocolate that would drip.

  21. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 21 21

    Now its time to make your pops look extra pretty. Use the remainder of your white chocolate for the drizzle. If you run out, make more following the steps above. Add the GEL food coloring of your choice until you receive your desired color. The liquid food coloring will immediately harden and ruin your chocolate.

  22. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 22 22

    Fill a Ziploc bag with your colored white chocolate. Cut a small hole in one corner of the Ziploc back so that you can drizzle the colored chocolate over your pops.

  23. How to bake cake pops. Easy Cake Pops - Step 23 23

    Now let your pops dry and then you are done!
    Lyndsi and I preferred the way the cake pops taste after they have chilled in the refrigerator for a bit.

    I am so making these at the next baby shower I throw {that's right Kristyn}!

    How pretty are these bad boys?!
