    Assembly Method
    In a stand mixer bowl, beat together cream cheese and icing sugar. Crumble cake layers by hand and add to cream cheese and sugar mixture. Mix well to break down cake pieces, forming a smooth dough. Shape the mixture into 2 tbsp balls and roll tightly. Make an indent into each cake pop using a wooden spoon or a paper stick. If freezing prior to dipping, let the cake pops warm up prior to dipping to prevent candy coating from cracking. When cake pops are firm and frozen, melt Candy Melts according to package directions, or in the microwave at 50% power in 45 second intervals. Do not overheat or Candy Melts will become too thick. Dip the cake pop stick into the melted Candy Melts up to the indent in the cake pop, rotating it to coat it evenly. This will help adhere the cake pop to the stick. Dip the cake pop into colored sprinkles and add candy eyes onto the cake pop before the Candy Melts harden. Store cake pops in the fridge.
    Tip: Some Candy Melt colors are more solid than others. To make the melt more liquid, add some Wesson Canola Oil to the color.
    Tip: Dip cake pop in an up and down motion, do not twist the cake pop as it can fall off the stick.
