Cauldron Cake Pops
Bake the yellow cake (you can follow the instructions on the back of your cake box or incorporate your own twist for however you’d like this to end up).
Crumb the yellow cake into your mixing bowl by separating it into four pieces with a knife. Pick up two pieces and rub together to create little cake crumbs (similar to grating cheese). Break up the larger pieces with your fingers.
Using a ratio of 1 box of cake to 1 tub of frosting, take frosting and mix into cake until it becomes a single consistency.
Roll into little balls and place on wax paper. These don’t have to be perfect since they can be remolded later—just work on getting them into a circular shape.
Place cake balls in freezer for approx. 40-minutes to rest.
Take lollipop sticks and dip them into chocolate melts. Then, stick them ¾ of the way into the cake balls after the 40-minute period is up. The chocolate will act as the glue/adhesive to ensure things stay together.
Once finished, place cake pops in the freezer for another five minutes to settle.
Take cake pops and dip them straight down into melted chocolate. Then place them directly back onto the wax paper. Don’t worry about flattening the top side of the pops—this will be the top of the cauldron.
Let them cool for a few moments to harden, and grab your red frosting. Paint flames onto the bottom of the cauldron near the stick all the way around, and place a bit of orange frosting on top of them to simulate a burning flame.
Take black frosting and draw circles on either side of your cake pop to create little cauldron handles (feel free to google images of a cauldron to reference). Take green frosting and squeeze across the flat top surface of your cake pop; then separate green Nerds from your box of Nerds candy and sprinkle across the top of your cake pop (the green frosting should act as adhesive). And now you’re done!
