Hello Kitty Cake Pops

Our little girl decided that she would like a Hello Kitty birthday party this year.  Upon researching Hello Kitty cakes online, I stumbled upon some Hello Kitty cake pops. I love Bakerella and have oogled over her cake pops in the past, but have never made them. The best thing about this recipe is that you can use any flavor of cake and any flavor of frosting! And the recipe is so simple and the possibilities for decoration are endless. My Hello Kitty cake pops may have looked like a kindergartner made them compared to Bakerella's, but everyone at the party thought they were great, especially my 5 year old, which is all that counts!

Hello Kitty Cake Pops
1 boxed cake mix
3/4c.- 1c. packaged frosting
white chocolate chips
white candy melts
lollipop sticks
styrofoam block
pink heart shaped sprinkles
red and yellow round sprinkles
black frosting gel

Prepare cake as directed on box and cool completely. When cooled, crumble cake and add frosting. Stir well with wooden spoon. Shape into 1" balls and chill in refrigerator. Melt small amount of candy. Dip lollipop sticks in a little of the melted candy and insert 1/2 way into cake balls. Once they have set, insert lollipop sticks into stryofoam. Dab a little melted candy onto the balls where you would like the ears to be. Quickly place a white chocolate chip on melted candy for ears. Allow to set. Once they are set, Melt the remaining candy melts and dip heads into melted candy to cover completely. I found using a small spoon to cover the heads and spinning gently helped to coat the balls without them falling off the lollipop stick. Place back in styrofoam to set.
To decorate faces, I used the melted candy as glue to adhere the bow and eyes, melting more candy as needed. Use frosting gel for eyes and whiskers. Store tightly covered in a cool dry place for up to 1 week. Do not refrigerate.
