You don’t have to make 48 cake pops at one time. Cut the cake into 3 equal pieces. One piece will make about 16 cake pops, and you can freeze the rest of the cake for another time. Use only one bag of candy coating to coat the 16 cake pops, and remember to also use only 1/3 cup frosting.
Several brands of candy coating are available, and each may melt a bit differently. The white color varies, and when melted, some are thinner than others. Make a note of the brand you prefer to work with, and watch carefully while melting.
