Expert Tips

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 one bag of candy melts to coat the 16 cake pops. Remember to also use only 1/3 cup frosting.

You can also use other candy melt colors for a fun springy look. Try some in light blue and pink.
