|Simple Cake Pops.|
So to start off I made the regular old cake ball mix. I love and follow Bakerella, so check out her site for the real deal. But here is how I do it.
Start off with a cake, I usually make a box mix, because I actually really like the flavour. Bake it up, cool it down then crumble it into your mixing bowl. Add enough icing ( what ever flavour you like) and mix until it becomes like a dough.

Now depending on how you plan to decorate your cake balls, you have many options on how to shape them. My last post gave a lot of ideas, but for this I am just going to make them the normal size using a mini ice cream scoop. I then roll the balls and chill them.
I melt candy melts in a glass bowl, taking them out every 30 second to stir, repeat until fully melted. I then get set up with my candy sticks and my Styrofoam.
So I am going to use a plastic bottle filled with melted candy melts and do a little drizzle over the tops and then sprinkle on the sprinkles I like best.

I know nothing impressive, but they really do taste great, and are easy to make.
Here are the Pokemon balls I also made, I know not very festive. But seasonal sprinkles really do help:)
Give it a try.
