With Easter being on Sunday and the weather sounding a little iffy what better opportunity to gather the family and make some festivie strawberry cake pops!

Receipe provided by; Instructables.com/Bakerella.com

Materials/Ingredients

  • Pick your design (for these Pops we are doing bunnies)
  • Strawberry cake mix
  • 1-2 eggs
  • Canola oil
  • Wax paper
  • Frosting (your choice)
  • Paper lollipop sticks
  • Pink and white candy melts
  • Jumbo heart sprinkles
  • Pastel confetti sprinkles
  • Pink, Blue, & Black edible ink pens
  • Styrofoam block (to stand them up in)
  • Paramount crystals
  • Pastel candy corn
  • Toothpicks

Directions/Decorating

  1. Follow the instructions on the back of the cake mix to bake your cake
  2. Once your cake is cooled, crumble the whole cake up in a bowl
  3. While crumbling, stir in your jar of frosting, a little at a time.  Once it reaches consistency, meaning the cake batter will roll up in balls you are good to go.
  4. Stick in the refrigerator for about an hour
  5. Once the batter is completely cool, roll mixture into quarter size balls (in this case you will shape them more like a bunnies head) and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
  6. Stick them in the fridge for about an hour
  7. Melt the pink and white candy melts in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
  8. Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
  9. Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
  10. Place in a styrofoam block to dry.
  11. Once dry, you can begin decorating the bunnies
  12. Use the rounded side of a cookie cutter and cut of the end of the candy corn. Dip the end in a little bit of the melted candy coating and adhere it to the top of the bunny head. Hold in place until it sets. If your candy coating isn’t too hot, this should just take a few seconds.
  13. Let the bunny heads with ears sit in the styrofoam block until all the ears are dry.
  14. When dry, use a little bit of melted candy coating to glue the facial features on. Use a toothpick and dab a little of the coating in position for the eyes and nose and adhere the sprinkles.
  15. When the eyes and noses are dry, use your pens to draw on the mouth. Then draw on the eye color and pupils.

Note: To get smoother covered pops, make sure your bowl is deep enough to submerge the entire pop. Try to dip it in one dunking motion and remove. If the chocolate is too thick, add some paramount crystals or some shortening to the melted candy coating to thin it out. Remove the pop, holding it in your left hand. tap your left wrist lightly with your right hand and rotate the lollipop stick over your bowl. The excess chocolate should fall off, smoothing out the coating at the same time. Also, make sure the coating surrounds the stick at the base to secure it.
