Easter Cake Pops

Cake Pop Ideas and Instructions
1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 cup butter
3 eggs
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butterscotch flavoring

Also need
1 container icing (I used vanilla)
Lollipop sticks
Treat Bags or plastic wrap
Vanilla Almond Bark
Wilton Gel to create different colors.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.

Combine cake ingredients. Pour evenly into cake pan.

Bake 35 minutes or until done.

Cool cake completely.

Crumble cake into large bowl. Add half the can of frosting to the cake crumbs. Using a spatula or your hands mix it together. If the mixture sticks together easily you are ready to go. If it doesn't stick together well add a little more icing.

Roll mixture into desired shape. Place on a lined cookie sheet.

Melt one block of vanilla bark according to package directions.

Dip one end of lollipop stick into vanilla. Insert about halfway into cake balls.

Place in freezer until they are firm about 20-30 minutes.

Melt more of the vanilla bark in a deep ramekin or glass measuring cup. Color if desired.

Carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and gently tap and rotate until the excess vanilla falls off.

Place in a styrofoam block to dry.

My pour little cake pops need some help! Andrew says they still taste good. I need bakerella's sprinkle selection and decorator pens!
