Easter cake lollipops

I made this recipe from Bakerella's cake lollipop recipe. It's really easy, decorating is definitely the hardest part!

The main part is easy! You just bake a cake…red velvet works the best, then process it to make crumbles! Add a can of cream cheese frosting and mix (using hands is easier) Then you just make balls, or whatever shape and freeze for about an hour. Then add a stick and dip in chocolate…decorate!!

I used corn syrup as takes awhile to dry but it's easy if you just paint it on with a small paint brush and then add sprinkles.

I covered these in sprinkles before the white chocolate dried. This works really well and dries super fast! Not to mention they are really really beautiful and sparkly in person.

And here they all are!! It takes awhile to least it did for me because this was my first time...hopefully I will get quicker in the future because they are so cool.


This is the recipe:
1c. cocoa
4c. flour
2c. sugar
1c. shortening
2tsp. vanilla
2 egg yolks
1c. buttermilk
1c. hot water
1tsp. salt
2tsp. soda

Mix all wet ingredients..then add all dry ingredients. drop by teaspoon on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 400 degrees for 8 minutes.
They do spread...I wish I would have made them smaller.

2 egg whites, beaten stiff
4c. powdered sugar
2tsp. vanilla
1c. shortening
4T. flour
4T. milk
