Smile Face Pops!

I found this site this morning Bakerella while working very hard at my job. These are so cute, I was thinking of making them for the first day of school. I have never seen cake pops. Hopefully I can find everything I need to make them. I have included the recipe in case any of you might be ambitious. She has a ton of yummy things on her site.

Want to make your own smiley face cake pops?

1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)

1 can frosting (16 oz.)
Wax paper
Yellow candy melts (1 lb. pkg.)
Edible ink pens
After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. (I use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. But, be warned, it will get messy. Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so start out by using almost the entire can and add more if you need to.)
Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don't tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
Place in a styrofoam block to dry.
Once dry, draw faces with an edible ink pen and allow ink to dry!
