Not anymore, I just make my first batch of cake pops. Here is my version of a beginner cake pop tutorial... If I can do it, you can do it! Claudia, our resident cake pop expert is supervising this post, just to make sure I tell you how to do it right, since I am a newbie :) And she has her own tutorial, you can read all about here.
You will need the following:
Makes 48-50 Cake Pops
(1) Box Cake Mix (on a side note the dollar store has 1/2 boxes if you want to start with a smaller beginner batch, but don't forget to half the frosting too!)
(1) Can of Frosting or 1/2 cup homemade frosting
Almond Bark or Chocolate Melting Chips (any color will do)
If you are displaying, a Styrofoam base. I used a round one.
Wrapping paper or foil to cover base.
Pre-poke (possibly not a real word, but a method) your Styrofoam with a clean lollipop stick. You should allow for 2 inches between each hole.
If you are adding sprinkles you can add before you place in the base, but wait until the chocolate is half dry. These were an amazing dessert for my friend's daughters 2nd birthday!
They are not perfect, but this is just the beginning of a long relationship of ALL things cake!
