  • 1 whole cake baked and cooled
  • 1 cup frosting
  • 48 oz candy coating pieces
  • decorating sugars and sprinkles


  • Crumble cake into a large bowl.
  • Mix in frosting. I used my hands.
  • Form cake into balls and roll together with hands.
  • Place cake balls on baking sheet.
  • Place sheet in refrigerator for several hours or in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • In a deep microwave bowl, place candy coating. Melt according to package directions.
  • Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the melted candy.
  • Insert stick halfway into pop.
  • Dip pop into melted candy coating. Do no stir around.
  • Lift out and let excess candy drip off.
  • Apply sprinkles or colored sugar, if desired.
  • Place upright to cool and harden. I used an inverted egg carton, but a Styrofoam block works too.
