Cake Pop 101: Bachelorette Party

This specific recipe comes from Bakerella but I am proud and admit to taking full credit for the…ahem…artistic interpretation.

I love bachelorette parties. I’m pretty conservative in my day-to-day life but I do enjoy letting loose everyone once in a while and allowing things to get a little racy…within limits of course! Hey, its fun! These cake pops for a recent bachelorette party, made with german chocolate ¬†generated quite a few laughs and we’re also delicious.

They were the perfect snack to enjoy while opening gifts and getting ready for a night out on the town.

You will need:
Box Cake Mix
9 x 13 inch cake pan
16-ounce container of frosting
Wilton Candy Melts
Food Coloring
Lollipop Sticks
Wax Paper
Mixing Bowl
Baking Sheets

Bake the box cake mix in a 9 x 13 in pan and let it cool completely. I baked mine in the evening and let it sit overnight and cool to room temperature.

Crumble the entire cake into a large bowl and add 3/4 the container of frosting. Mix thoroughly. You are done with the frosting.

Set out cookie sheets covered in wax paper. Roll the mixture, by hand, into roughly 1 1/2 inch balls. This recipe yielded about 32 cake balls for me.

Place the cake balls on the cookie sheets and chill in the refrigerator for several hours.

Coating the Cake Balls:

Before removing the chilled cake balls, melt the candy coating in a microwave bowl. Follow the instructions but do not over-heat the candy coating. If you do, it will get really weird and chunky and you will need to start over with a new bag. I microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval until completely melted.

Remove a few cake balls from the refrigerator. Dip the tip of the lollipop stick into the candy coating first and then insert the lollipop stick about half way into the cake ball.

Hold the lollipop stick with the cake ball attached and submerge the entire cake ball into the candy coating. Set the cake pops, with lollipop stick up, on a new sheet of wax paper to dry.

How-To Lingerie Inspired Cake Pops:

Fill a new microwave bowl with candy melts. Melt as previously described. When melted, add food coloring if necessary.

Hold the cake pop in a diagonal direction and dip it into the candy melts until it is half covered. Repeat with another cake ball to finish the set!

Decorate with candy pearls or other embellishments as you see fit. Use a tooth pick to dot left over candy coating onto the cake ball and apply the embellishments over top. The candy coating will dry and keep the embellishments in place.
