I meant to post this a few weeks ago – what I’m calling my “Fall Cake Pops”. I was so excited about Fall officially arriving, I wanted to celebrate with a fun festive baked good.
I used Red Velvet cake mix, orange and yellow candy wafers, brown ribbon, and the best part – leaf sprinkles!
Of course, you’ll bake the cake as usual, and after it bakes and cools, break the cake into a bowl into small pieces. Add half of your frosting and mix together. Use your ice cream scoop to create the perfect size cake ball (I still managed to add more cake mix creating them too big – lesson learned). Put them in the freezer for 45 minutes (UPDATE: I’ve since learned it’s better to put them in the freezer overnight). Heat up your candy wafers according to the directions on the package. Insert sticks, roll cake ball in melted candy and sprinkle leaf sprinkles over top. Stick cake pop into foam square to dry.
After they’re done hardening, wrap with cellophane or a bag and secure with brown ribbon. Next step is to enjoy!
