Cake + frosting + candy + sprinkles in a bite-sized dessert = cake pops

There are several ways to make cake pops ~ bake the cake, smoosh it up along with with some frosting, roll it into balls, insert a stick and dip it into more frosting frost or chocolate and decorate away. A step-by-step tutorial is here.

Or, about to be launched by select brands is the cake pop maker.

Cake pops are an elegant choice for any party or event.

Or ignite your imagination & make them fun ~ your kids will love them!
