Styrofoam block (to set cake pops in while drying)
Styrofoam cone (can be found at your local craft store (ex: Michaels))
Pastry bag + extra coating for piping on designs (note: a plastic bag w/ one corner sniped off can be used to pipe)
Assorted sprinkles, pearl dust (optional)
Optional: Assorted food colorings (oil or powder based only)
Prepare and bake cake mixes as directed on box; cool completely.
Crumble both cakes into a large bowl. Add frosting and mix thoroughly.
Roll mixture into 1″ sized balls. Chill for approximately 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.
Melt CANDIQUIK® Coating in Melt and Make Microwaveable Tray™ according to directions on package.
Insert a lollipop stick into each cake ball. Dip cake pops in CANDIQUIK®; allow excess coating to drip off. Place in Styrofoam block to set.
Decorate cake pops as desired with candy coating and/or icing and sprinkles.
Once completely dry, carefully remove the cake ball from the lollipop stick. Insert a toothpick in the Styrofoam cone and press the cake ball on the end of the toothpick. Repeat until entire cone is filled with cake balls. (By dipping the cake balls on a lollipop stick, this ensures the cake ball is perfectly round and will sit flush against the cone.)
*Note: Depending on the size of your Styrofoam cone, the number of cake balls required will vary. It will take approximately 4 cakes worth and 6 packages of CandiQuik Coating to fill the large (18") Styrofoam cone (pictured).
