RECIPE TIP: For pink champagne cake pops, add a few drops of pink food coloring to the buttercream frosting.

INGREDIENTS

Cake:
1 box white cake mix
1/2 teaspoon LorAnn Sparkling Wine Flavor (Champagne-type flavor)

Buttercream Frosting:
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1-1/4 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
Several drops LorAnn Sparkling Wine Flavor
4 - 6 drops LorAnn liquid strawberry or pink food coloring (optional)
40 - 50 large (6") lollipop sticks (left plain, or decorated with faux crystals)
2- 16 ounce packages vanilla white chocolate candy wafers
White or Silver Sanding Sugar (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bake cake in a 9" x 13" baking pan according to package directions. Allow to cool. 
  2. Meanwhile, mix frosting ingredients and add flavoring by the drop to taste. Add coloring if desired. 
  3. With a serrated knife, carefully remove the browned edges of the cake. Using your fingers, crumble the remaining white cake into a large bowl. Stir in frosting until mixture can be held together. Shape into small (about 1-1/2") balls and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 2 hours. 
  4. Melt white chocolate candy wafers in microwave at 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring after each interval, until candy is completely melted. 
  5. Remove cake balls from freezer. To make cake pops, dip about 1/4" of a lollipop stick into the melted candy and insert into a cake ball (about 2/3 of the way). Once cake pops are made, dip one at a time into the melted white chocolate, tapping lightly to remove excess. Immediately sprinkle with the sanding sugar (if using) and place on the wax paper lined baking sheet. Place cake pops in refrigerator until chocolate has hardened.
Makes about 40 - 50 cake pops depending on size.
