Red Velvet Cake Pops

My office manager Lauren loves Red Velvet so when I saw this recipe on my friend Jennifer's site I had to make these for her Birthday!

1. Bake a cake and let it cool then crumble it all up 2. After the cake is all crumbled you add in 1 can of Cream Cheese Frosting and Mix.... using your hands is best.... SEE?????3. After the crumbled cake and frosting is all mixed well you form it into many balls. I put the sticks in this time but probably wouldn't do that next time I make them.

4. Freeze the balls for about 15-30 minutes. 5. Get all your goodies together. I would HIGHLY recommend Stater Bros. brand CANDIQUIK for melting. It was SUPER easy and stayed smooth the whole time. It even came with a little melting tray for less clean up! 6. Once the chocolate is nice and melted you dip the cake pops in, then roll in sprinkles.Here is my 1st set.....These ones were my favorite.... I'm going to make them for the teachers for ValentinesThe cake kept falling off the sticks so I decided to make some ballsBright pink sprinklesI did try melting some White Chocolate Chips made by Wilton but it was not smooth and got hard really fast so I only made a couple white chocolate ones. Here is one way I gave them to my office manager..... in a Mason JarI also made a little bouquet for her with candy,in a jarand cake pops insideHappy Birthday Lauren!

By the way the Cake Pops tasted really yummy!

Love it!!! Now I'm officially inspired to make them for B's birthday! Love all your drying techniques too...I kept wondering how big of a foam block I'd need to buy...good to know there are other options!

You are good :) Ohh - the Candiquik comes in a vanilla flavor as well (maybe you already knew this :)?) - since you didn't have any luck with the Wilton (me either!) ....
Cute blog!
