  • 1 bag of Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers
  • Confetti sprinkles
  • Cake pop sticks
  • Purple orange, pink, and teal gel food colors


  • Make the cake balls:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Make the cake batter according to the box
  • Split the batter into 4 bowls
  • Add 1 drop of food coloring into 1 of each bowl

  • Scoop each color into 1 cupcake liner, 3 liners per color.
  • Bake the cupcakes at 350 degrees for 21 minutes.
  • Remove from the cupcakes and let cool

  • Pull out the cake balls and set onto the counter next to the melted chocolate
  • Take cake pop stick and dip one end into the chocolate, push the cake pop stick end with the melted chocolate into cake ball
  • We like to use a floral foam to place our cake pops in as they harden
  • Place back into the freezer until chocolate is hard
  • Pull cake balls back out and dip into the melted chocolate
  • Lightly tap the stick onto the edge of the pot with the melted chocolate so that the extra chocolate falls off
  • Push bottom of stick into the floral foam block to hold the stick
  • sprinkle some confetti sprinkles on top of the cake pop
  • repeat with remaining cake balls.
  • Once the chocolate is hardened, slowly pull out the sticks for cake balls or leave in for cake pops -
  • enjoy!
