Mickey and Minnie cake pops

I made my sister a cake pop bouquet for her birthday. Cake pops are cake and frosting mixed together, rolled into balls, and dipped in chocoate. Yellow cake with chocolate frosting is her favorite cake--so I made a butter recipe yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting, then dipped in dark chocolate with a little bit of black color added.

You can do any combination of cake and icings, of course, depending on your favorite. Red velvet/cream cheese, chocolate/cream cheese, white/strawberry--possibilities are endless!

The instructions for the Mickey/Minnie pops are at Disneyfamily.com--created for them by Bakerella.

The container I just got at Target's dollar spot and added some red and white polka dots, then filled 1/3 with pinto beans (for weight) and then the styrofoam. Cover with the shredded paper and voila! Mickey and Minnie's cake pop bouquet!

You make a cake like normal and let it cool completely. Then you crumble it up into fine pieces in a big bowl. Add 1/2 to 3/4 of the can of frosting and mix well.

That is the link to the page at Disneyfamily.com with the detailed instructions. It's really pretty easy. Word of warning-no one can eat just one!

It's all about getting the cake broken into really fine crumbs after it's baked. Once it is completely cooled you cut it into 4 even sections. Take 2 sections and rub them together over the bowl. That breaks it down into really fine pieces. Then do the next 2 sections. Then add the frosting and mix well. You roll it into your balls and everything is nice and even--no blobby and yucky-I promise!

You haven't seen me and cake decorating They'll all have one ear bigger than the other, or ears bigger than the head, I bet! My stuff tastes OK, but would never win a prize for presentation Even your chocolate is al smooth and even with no drips!

These are now a new family favorite after my soon to be niece-in-law made them for our Christmas get together. My own daughter made them not to long ago and I'm just waiting for a special occasion to make them for work.

Those are SO CUTE!!

I've made the oreo truffles from the bakerella website, but my dipping chocolate never gets that smooth! What kind of chocolate did you use and how did you melt it?
