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 Rose Cake Pops, you need to bake a cake and allow it to cool. Then you crumble the cake into fine crumbs and add in frosting. Form the mixture into oblong 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. After the candy coating hardens, draw a swirl on top with red melted wafers and leaves on the bottom with green melted wafers. Rose Cake Pops are a fun, kid friendly dessert that would be great for Valentine’s Day or a Beauty and the Beast party.
