Lauren wanted to make something special for her Mother-in-Law, Robyn’s surprise birthday celebration last weekend, and decided to make some yummy cake pops to share with their family in Santa Barbara. Robyn’s love of bright colors inspired the look of these cake pops. We used a simple cake pop recipe and amped it up with a lot of bright colored sprinkles to make these fun “confetti cake pops”.  

Here are the directions to follow to make your own confetti cake pops:
1. Follow the directions on the box to make a Pillsbury “Funfetti” cake.


2. After the cake is baked and cooled completely, crumble it into a large bowl, and mix thoroughly with one can of vanilla frosting.


3. Roll cake mixture into one inch balls using your hands. This will get messy. Chill for several hours in the refrigerator (or in the freezer to speed up the process).
4. When cake balls are cooled completely, add a white lollipop stick to each. This will help with the chocolate coating process.


      

5. Melt chocolate in the microwave; 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until smooth. We used white chocolate “Candy Melts” with confetti sprinkles that we found at Joann Fabrics. (Tip: this is not something you can get at the market. You will have to go to a specialty bake shop or craft store.)
6. Coat cake balls in chocolate and then roll the bottom in hot pink sugar sprinkles. Lay on wax paper until firm. Best if refrigerated.We would suggest leaving the pops in the freezer while you are doing this step and taking them out a couple at a time, so they are as cold as possible when dipping. They tend to fall apart if they are not cold enough.


Confetti cake pops make a bright birthday treat. If you thought you loved confetti cake, wait til you try them covered in colorful chocolate and sprinkles. It’s like a party in your mouth.
