Cake Pops

You could make a bouquet of cake pops for your mom or grandma or someone else you love for Mother’s Day!

cake of your choice (already baked)

frosting of your choice

melted chocolate (white, milk, or dark)

craft sticks or skewers

  1. Break the cake into small crumbs in a big bowl.

  2. Add a cup of frosting and mix it into the cake with your clean fingers until the cake is sticky but still slightly crumbly.

  3. Roll 3 tablespoons of the mixture into a ball and set on a plate.

  4. Insert the sticks halfway into the cake balls. (If you dip the sticks in melted chocolate first, they’ll stay in better.)

  5. Freeze the cake pops for 20 minutes.

  6. Dip the cake balls into the melted chocolate until they are completely covered. Wait for the chocolate to harden, and then enjoy!

Scripture Power

Make a case for your scriptures! Cut the top half off a large cereal box. Then cover it with patterned paper or magazine cutouts. Tape it all around with clear packing tape to keep it secure. Then punch two holes, spaced evenly apart, in each long side. Use a ribbon or strip of cloth to make handles for each side.
