  1. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on box; cool completely.
  2. Crumble cake into a large bowl. Add frosting and mix thoroughly.
  3. Roll mixture into 1″ sized balls. Chill for approximately 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.
  4. Melt CANDIQUIK® Coating in tray according to directions on package. Add 1 packet of strawberry flavored Frosting Creations to each package of Vanilla CANDIQUIK Coating; stir until blended.
  5. Insert a lollipop stick into each cake ball. Dip cake pops in coating; allowing the excess coating to drip off. Place on wax paper and sprinkle. Let dry.
If cake balls become too soft or are not holding their shape while being dipped, place back in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
