Yummy vanilla cake pops dipped in orange candy melts and sprinkled with fun colourful funfetti. A fun Halloween treat for children.
One more sleep till Halloween. So why not treat your little trick or treaters to some funfetti cake pop sweetness. Get them to help with making the cake pops as well.
Start off by baking your favorite cake recipe and leave it to cool. Trim crust off the cake and crumble the cake . I get my assistant Esme involved at the point. She is very good cake crumbler ( is that even a word). Mix in frosting a little at a time until you have a good consistency. Use a small ice cream scoop to have all the balls the same size. Scoop up some of your cake and roll into a ball. Cake pops can be put in the fridge or in freezer for to firm up. If chilling in freezer leave for 15 minutes, you do not want them to be frozen.
Melt candy melts at 30 second intervals stirring in between until melted. It’s easier to coat pops with a thinner consistency candy coating, so mix in a little bit of vegetable oil at a time to thin the candy coating.
Resist the temptation to stir the coating with the cake pop. This may cause your cake to fall off the lollipop stick into the candy coating . Dip cake pop in one swoop. Double dipping may result in the cake pop falling off the stick. Before dipping cake pops have to be firm not frozen.
Coat cake pops with funfetti whilst wet. Leave to dry and then enjoy.
