Cake Pop Tutorial...Happy Birthday to my Princess

Today is my Princess Birthday!!!  I cannot believe she is two years old, the time has past so fast.  I am so thankful to be her mother.  Because we had a huge Dora the Explorer Birthday party for her this weekend, I still wanted to do something special for her on her big day, so I made Cake Pops for her class at daycare.  I usually do not give her sweets, but since today is her special day I made her favorite...Cake Pops.  Cake pops are so easy to make and they are the perfect size for kids.  Below are instructions for my cake pops.

Yellow Cake, prepared
Whipped Supreme Fluffy White Frosting, 3 scoops (or any frosting of your choice)
Lollipop Sticks - Michael's
Candy Melts - Michael's

3.5 x 5in Lollipop Bags - Michaels

How to Prepare:
1. Prepare the cake as instructed on box
2. After cake has cooked, let it sit and cool down
3. In a large bowl, crumble the cake up
4. Add 3 scoops of frosting to the crumbled up cake and mix well
5. Take a small Ice Cream scoop or use your hands and roll the mix into tight balls and place on a plate
6. Melt 4 oz of the Candy Melts (add a drop of Olive Oil to the candy melts for a smooth texture) in a small cup in the microwave 
7. Dip the tip of the lollipop stick in the melted candy melts bowl, and insert it into the cake balls half way (this will allow the lollipop stick to stick to the cake balls)
8. Freeze the Cake balls for 20 minutes
9. Melt any remaining candy melts in the cup
10. Remove the cake balls from the freezer
11. Completely submerge each cake ball in the cup of melted candy melts, make sure to cover the entire ball
12. Let the melted candy drip off and swirl around 
13. Optional add any decorative sprinkles to the cake pops
14. Stick the decorated cake pop into a Styrofoam block
15. Once you've decorated all of the cake pops and stuck them in the styrofoam block, place in the freezer
16. Cover with a clear treat bag and add a ribbon
