Break the cake into big pieces that you can easily rub together. Over a bowl, rub them together until the entire cake is broken into small crumbs.

Step 3: Break Down Big Crumbs

If any big chunks or crumbs are in the bowl, break them into smaller crumbs. You should end up with a bowl with small crumbles, like in the picture.

Step 6: Scoop Up the Mixture

Using a scooper, scoop up the desired amount of mixture. Alternatively, you can use your own hands, but take into account that every cake pop will be a different size that way.

Step 8: Place on Baking Sheet & Fridge

Transfer the balls to a wax paper covered baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes – no longer! Then place into the refrigerator and let them stay chilled there for about an hour to an hour and a half.

Step 12: Place the Stick in Cake Pop

Carefully insert the stick into the cake pop, making sure you placed it deep enough so that it feels secure but not too deep that it will be an unwelcoming surprise in the first bite.

Step 13: Dip the Cake Pop

Carefully dip each cake pop in the melted candy melts to cover it completely. Make sure the candy touches the stick. When it dries, it will be more stable.

Step 16: Decorate!

Once the cake pop is dry, place your decorations. You can use sparkling sugars or sprinkles, rainbow candy coated chips, small daisy sprinkles, sugar dough or anything else you can think of!

To glue the decoration pieces to the cake pop, use a toothpick. Dip into the melted candy coating, dab a dot of the coating on the sprinkle and attach to the pop.
