I had so much fun making chocolate cake pops for the first time last weekend that I wanted to make some more, but was torn between cheesecake pops and strawberry cake pops…so I decided to make both! Besides, how could one choose between two great tastes?
Following the directions, I prepared my strawberry batter of goodness...
and spread the batter in my 9x13 pan
After the cake was cooled, I crumbled it into little bitsy pieces.
Once the cake was crumbled, I added ½ can of strawberry frosting and used the back of a spoon to mix it into the cake.
Because the cake and the frosting were pink, it was hard to tell if everything was completely blended…so it took me a little longer to mix.
Now comes the fun part of getting down and dirty…with cake mix that is! I followed the same instructions I used when I made my chocolate cake pops to make these.
For these cake pops, I decided to go with traditional white candy melts.
I love how silky smooth those melts look!
Dip ½ inch of your lollipop stick into the candy melt and place no further than half way into your cake ball.
When you dip your cake pop, make sure to let the excess candy melt drip from the pop; otherwise it could end up all over your counter or floors.
These turned out beautifully…inside and out!
For these cake pops, I decided to go with jimmies for some flare.
All lined up and nowhere to go…except for in my tummy!
And there is that reoccurring love of polka dots again!
I thought the red ribbon and white polka dots were so cute on these!
I’ve got a lovely bunch of…cake pops…standing in a row! Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head (ok, not really…but wouldn’t that be awesome?!?)
I love this picture…it reminds me of something from Willy Wonka and walking through a field giant cake pops!
