How to Prepare Cake Pops for Baby Showers?

Cake pops are just the right sweet treats for baby showers. They have become a trend in the last few years. They are dense frosted confectionery items rolled into balls and decorated with sprinkles. Basically, served on sticks, plates or spoons, they are easily portable and easy to eat. And they have an awesome taste as well!
Cake pops are really delicious and work very well for the baby showers. For single size servings they are the best option. Rather than a large cake, the cake pops give the guests the opportunity to choose how much they can get.
Ingredients you will need

To make these cake pops, you will require frosting, candy melt, cake mix, lollipop sticks, vegetable shortening and sprinkles.
How to make the cake balls?
You will first have to bake cake mix as per the directions given in the box and allow the cake to cool. Take a big bowl and transfer the cool cake to it and break crumbs into it. Mix cake crumbs with frosting. This actually makes the dough for cake pops. Start by adding ½ containing frosting to crumbs. Make them into small size balls squeezing dough together and rolling them into ball shape. Use a scoop for making them uniform. If the ball falls apart, more frosting needs to be added. Arrange balls on the baking sheet. Store cake balls for the night it in your fridge.
Melt candy melts using microwave or a chocolate melter but enusre it isn’t very thick. If it is thick, add vegetable shortening for thinning the chocolate. The consistency must be drippy. For attaching the sticks, dip every stick into melted chocolate & insert 3/4th part into the ball. Allow it to set for sometime so that balls do not fall off at the time of dipping.
Then dip the balls in melted chocolate unless it gets covered completely. For drying, place those pops in a small sized cup. Don’t refrigerate now. Customize the pops for the baby shower theme. If it’s a Winnie the Pooh baby shower theme, make honey pots or bumblebees. You can even make pops in different shapes like alphabet blocks. The different options for toppings, colors and flavors are endless.
