If there were ever a treat that was made for all ages, it’s a cake pop. They might appear to be geared towards kids, but I’ve been making these for years and have seen more adults than I can count grab them before the kids can reach them!
Mash up cake and place in a large bowl. Using an electric stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the cake, and 1/2 to 3/4 cup buttercream frosting on medium sped until well blended and the mixture can be formed into a ball.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop and roll mixture into balls and place on a cookie sheet. (Use cookie scoop for evenly sized balls). Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes or until firm.
Melt white candy melts in a candy melting pot or a microwave safe bowl for 30 second increments for about 2 1/2 minutes at 40% power, stirring as needed until smooth.
Melt 2nd (and 3rd if desired) candy melt colors in a separate bowl. Set aside. Remove the pops from the refrigerator.
Dip each lollipop stick 1/4 inch into the melted candy. Insert the sticks into all the cake balls.
Dip entire cake ball down into melted candy. When completely submerged into the melted candy, twist lollipop stick as you pull up, to create a marbled look on the cake ball.
Hold pop over melted candy and gently shake wrist to allow excess melted candy to drip off. When pop is no longer dripping, transfer to a sheet of parchment or waxed paper to dry. Enjoy!
