How To Make Cake Pops. Bake a red velvet cake. Let it cool, I put mine in the refrigerator overnight. Crumble it up in a bowl and add 1/2 of a can of cream cheese frosting. Ball with your hands. Freeze for an hour or refrigerate for 2. Dip in melted candy...I used melted mini chocolate kisses. I also melted the rest of the cream cheese frosting and dipped the rest into that. It was tasty!! At the end, put a cake pop stick on the top. Refrigerate again.
