Red Velvet Cake Ball Pops is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is excellent! It was the first time I ever made cake pops. I followed the cake recipe exactly but did add 1 T. of vegetable shortening to 1 cup of candy melts to thin them out. They are thick and impossible to use for dipping if you don't thin them. I read this several other places and trust's the secret to quick and easy coating of the pops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made the cake pops for a baby shower and they went over really big. They are yummy. I will be making them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I baked the cake with 2 round pans, it made it easier to freeze the other cake for later use. I used my stand mixer (speed 5) to crumble the cake and mix with the frosting, it was a lot faster then mixing it by hand. I put the mixture into the Wilton Silicone Heart Molds (24ct) then dipped them in Red, Pink, and White Melts for Valentine's Day. Perfect for my Son's party at school. Both Cute & Delicious!!
