- 1 box funfetti cake
- 1 (16-oz) can vanilla frosting
- 1 (1-lb) package white candy melts
- 1 (12-oz) bag semisweet chocolate chips
- Red food coloring
- Lollipop sticks
Bake funfetti cake according to instructions on box. Once complete, let cake cool completely. Break it up into crumbles using your hands. Add the frosting, and mix with your hands or wooden spoons, spatulas, etc. — note that you may not need the entire can.
Roll the funfetti and frosting mixture into small balls, approximately the size of a golf ball. Place balls on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
Melt a small amount of chocolate in a double boiler or in intervals in the microwave. Dip the tip of each lollipop stick into the melted chocolate, and insert about halfway into each ball. Place in the freezer to firm up for at least half an hour.
Melt the white candy melts in a double boiler. Keep the boiler on, as you do not want the white candy melts to solidify before you are finished. Hold cake pop by the stick, and dip until fully submerged. Allow excess to drip off, and return to the wax paper. Continue with remaining cake pops. Place in refrigerator for at least half an hour, or until coating has hardened.
Next, melt the semisweet chocolate in a double boiler. For the “grooms,” create a tuxedo effect by dipping each side of the cake pop into the chocolate at an angle, leaving an unmarked white “V” in the center. Dip a toothpick into the melted chocolate, make three buttons along the white “V”, and trace a bowtie at the top. For the “brides,” add a few drops of red food coloring to the white candy melts to create the desired shade of pink. Use a toothpick to trace pink hearts on the cake pops, or a decorative dress pattern.
Refrigerate cake pops until ready to serve.
