So last week I made my first batch of cake pops. I made a yellow cake, used vanilla icing (Pillsbury store bought) and coated them with white vanilla flavored candy melts and dark chocolate candy melts.

They came out pretty ok and I was instantly hooked! The first night I basically got out all my sprinkles (I'm kind of like a crazy cat lady of sprinkles, don't judge) and played with all of them! It was so much fun and they tasted pretty great. The cake wasn't great by itself but once you add icing and coat it in chocolate, well, what's not to like?!
I immediately decided that these were my new favorite thing to bake (sorry, cookies, I'm sure I'll come back eventually). They are so easy and so fun and OMG SO YUMMY. I already have a ton of other flavor combinations I want to try, I just need to find the time! So far I've tried...
Yellow cake, vanilla icing: coated in vanilla flavored and dark chocolate candy melts
White cake, vanilla icing: coated in white chocolate and dark chocolate candy melts
I made the white cake ones for New Years and they were adorable if I do say so myself. And my hubby took some nice pictures of them so I'll have to share them with you soon (and maybe even a recipe)!
