Sweet Sixteen Cake Pops.

What does a girl love more on her sixteenth birthday then anything? Well presents of course. Followed closely by sweets! I wish I had a shirt that said I <3 chocolate /cupcakes /cake pops /candy.
Back on topic though: Have you ever had one of those relationships most people around you don't understand but to you and that person makes perfect since? My best friend is named Javier and he is little older then me and born and raised in Southern California. On outside appearances alone (me being a little hick girl from the heart of Texas) you wouldn't think we had much in common. I can't think of anyone I have more in common with. He has been my strength, companion, mentor, psychologist, football Buddie, life strategist and so much more. So when his beautiful daughter (whom I consider to be my adopted niece and would do anything for) asked me to make cake pops for her best friends sweet sixteen birthday party I couldn't wait to get started. I love anything I get to do that is girlie and starts with the word sweet. This is what I came up with to help celebrate one of the most important birthdays in a young girls life.

First we are going to melt our candy melt and make some bow
molds. You can dye the candy with food coloring gel
(never water based)
for any color bow you want. I used the Wilton candy
brights melts so
when I change the color it still looks like it has sprinkles in it.

After you bake what ever flavor you wish crumble it up in a bowl and prepare to bring on the sweetness.

Added about 1/2 of the frosting to the cake mix and started stirring until it is all mixed.
Cake Pops calls for about a third of a regular can of frosting
 but I have
found the way I make them a little more frosting works best for me. The most important thing
is what I call "mashing" the mix. Make sure every inch is coated in frosting and "mashed" together
so they form easy for you and stick together on the lolly pop stick.

I use a small ice cream scoop to form the initial balls before rolling them out in my hand.
Pack it real tight with mix and you will have lovely round cake balls.

After cooling cake balls/dipping and adding lolly pop sticks we can
now decorate our cake pops how ever we see fit.
I formed mine into
little squares by hand and then dipped them in green Wilton candy melts. Then I added
sparkles, bows and piping.
