  1. Once the cake is baked, make sure to cool it first. Get a bowl and start crumbling the cake using forks or your fingers until they are in a fine consistency.
  2. In another bowl, start whipping the butter, sugar, cream cheese, and milk until very smooth. Pour all of it on the cake crumbs and start mixing.
  3. Continue mixing by using your fingers, also kneading it until it has blended well with the cakes.
  4. Test the mixture if it can be rolled into a ball. Add a little milk if it does not stick well together.
  5. Cover the mix with plastic wrap if it is okay to go, then refrigerate until it’s firm. You can leave the mixture in the fridge for a couple of days.
  6. Cover two large baking sheets with wax paper. Take a small amount of the cake mix and roll it into a ball.
  7. Use lollipop sticks if you want a lollipop-looking cake pop. Otherwise, you can just leave them cake balls. Keep doing this until all the mixture is exhausted.
  8. Place the sheets (with the balls) in the freezer to harden.
  9. Melt your chocolate using a double boiler. Adding a spoonful of vegetable shortening in the pot will make the coating smoother.
  10. dip the balls into the chocolate to coat them. Sprinkle them with decorations while they are still wet: - sprinkles - cake confetti - mini chips - shaved chocolate
  11. Place it back on the sheet once the ball has been covered with the edible decorations. Do not refrigerate the finished products because it will just melt off. Freeze them if kept in storage.

Enjoy Your Cake Pops!
