  • ¾ of a 16 oz. container of vanilla frosting

Instructions
Blue Velvet Cake Pops
  1. Bake a 9x13 cake according to package directions. Allow cake to cool completely.
  2. In a bowl, crumble cake into fine crumbs and mix in about ¾ of the container of frosting.
  3. Form cake mixture into 1½ inch balls. Place balls covered in the fridge for an hour or more.
Decoration
  1. Melt blue wafers in the microwave on 50% power for 30 second intervals. Stirring after each interval until melted. If mixture is thick, thin by using Wilton Candy Melts EZ Thin Dipping Aid, or mixing in 1 tsp. shortening or oil at a time until desired thinness.
  2. Remove several cake balls from the fridge at a time.
  3. Dip ½ inch of a lollipop stick into the melted wafers and insert it almost half way into a cake ball. Allow the cake pop to rest for 30 seconds or a minute to let the melted wafers harden onto the stick.
  4. Dip the cake ball fully into the melted wafers while holding onto the stick.
  5. After dipping, gently tap and rotate the stick to remove the excess candy coating.
  6. To decorate with white sprinkles, quickly sprinkle them onto the cake pop before the blue candy coating hardens.
  7. To decorate with white drizzle, allow the blue candy coating to harden. Melt white melting wafers in the microwave and use Wilton Candy Melts EZ Thin Dipping Aid, shortening or oil to thin. Drizzle the melted white wafers over the blue cake pops.
