1 Pre-made cake, any flavor
1 T Butter cream icing, recipe follows
1 pkg Candy Melts
1 T Vegetable shortening
Crumble cake and add 1 tablespoon of icing. Mix together, picking out any lumps. Roll out 1 inch cake ball. Place in the freezer for about 20 minutes until hard.
Put 1 package of Candy Melts in the microwave or a double boiler pot and melt slowly. Add 1 tablespoon of shortening to thin the melts.
Pull cake balls out of freezer. If you are making pops, place sticks in the ball. Carefully dip the cake bites in the candy coating and place on a sheet of parchment paper.
If you are decorating the cake bites/pops with sprinkles, be sure to do so before the candy coating hardens.
