Cake mix baked following directions, 1/2 cup creamy frosting or jam or preserves, liqueur if desired.

Directions:
Bake a cake of any kind, following directions. Let it cool and put it in a bowl. Add either 1/2 cup creamy frosting, or a couple of ounces of jam or preserves plus liqueur. Knead the mixture until crumbs and frosting or jam are well blended. Shape the pops. For a ball, use a cookie or melon scoop. If using a cookie cutter, take a chunk of the mixture into your hands and pack it like you would a snowball, then flatten it with your hands, and roll it like cookie dough with a rolling pin, so the top is smooth and it has uniform thickness. Then cut it with the cookie cutter.

Insert lollipop sticks, either paper or clear plastic for a more "elegant" look. Sticks can come out of the top or bottom of the pop.

Dip pops in white or dark chocolate or candy coating, trying for an even coat. Make sure the part where the stick enters the pop is covered, because that will help prevent the stick from falling out.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are good treats for kids' events. Many variations are possible. To add color to white chocolate, use oil based candy coloring. To make little cutouts such as stars or hearts, roll out fondant and cut the desired shape. Use a bit of chocolate to stick them on the pop. Acetate transfer sheets can have chocolate poured over, cooled, with the designs then transferred to the chocolate. Pops can be dipped to have a variety of colors. Chocolate in a pastry bag can be used to squeeze and draw. For St.Patrick's day, dip a pop in white chocolate and roll in green sugar sprinkles. Use a shamrock cookie cutter. For 4th of July, use red, white and blue. For Christmas, decorate like an ornament.
