I made these last weekend with my nieces. We had so much fun. They were fun to make and turned out adorable. I used a yellow cake mix and vanilla frosting, but you could use any combination that sounds appealing. *Tip: use the smaller sucker sticks, as the longer ones make them top heavy.

Cake pops are fun for kids and adults. We used a white cake and cream cheese frosting, but for spring flavors strawberry or lemon would be a great choice. The inside is tender and moist while the white chocolate forms a nice, hard shell. Easter sprinkles add to the cuteness of the dessert. Place the styrofoam base in an Easter basket, cover with grass and you have an edible centerpiece.
