Other Cake Pops Ideas
In large bowl, use hands to crumble cake until no large chunks remain.
Add frosting and mix with fingers until well combined.
Form mixture into cake balls or press into shaped silicone molds.
Chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours. If using a silicone mold, carefully remove cake balls from mold.
In microwave-safe bowl, melt Duncan Hines Creamy Home-Style Frosting for 30 seconds on 50% power; stir to distribute heat evenly. Continue microwaving for 15 second intervals at 50% power until icing is warmed and thin. Dip one end of stick into icing and insert into chilled pop; let set. Wait until icing is firm before dipping the pop completely into melted frosting; gently shake off excess.
