If you don’t know what cake pops are, they are basically cake balls covered in a candy coating and served on sticks. To make Pink Velvet Cake Pops, you need to bake a pink velvet cake and allow it to cool. Then you crumble the cake into fine crumbs and add in frosting. Form the mixture into balls and place in the fridge to chill for an hour. Then dip a lollipop stick into the melted wafers and insert it into the cake ball. Each ball gets fully dipped into the melted wafers. Before the candy coating hardens, decorate the cake pops with white sprinkles. Or after the candy coating hardens, drizzle white melted wafers onto the cake pops. Pink Velvet Cake Pops are a fun, kid friendly dessert that would be great for any occasion.
