Cake pops dipped in candy melt crafted into Yoshi Eggs.
These were originally going to be tiny pikachu cakes, but failure to use cooking spray on the pan left me with a lot of broken up cake. Completely changing gears, I decided to create these cake pops instead!

In my attempt to recover what cake I could, I ended up with about a cup and a half of cake to use. Whatever amount you’re using, you’ll want to start with some crumbled cake in a bowl.
Add frosting and mix. I used about a half cup. You want to add enough so that the cake mix is sticking together.
Taking about a tablespoon at a time, roll the cake mix into a ball. Pinch one end to create the egg shape.
Place onto a cookie sheet. Repeat until you run out of dough.
Place into the freezer until the cake has frozen. I left mine in there for a couple of hours.
When you’re ready to dip the eggs, pour some white candy melts into a cup. The cup shape will make the cake easier to dunk. Microwave for 20 seconds at a time and stir, repeating until the candy melts are fully melted.
Take an egg cake and poke in the wide end with a lollipop stick.
Dip the stick into the candy melt and poke back into the egg.
Take the egg and fully emerge it into the cup o’ candy melts.
Once fully coated, tap the stick against the side of the cup to remove excess candy melt.
The cake pops take only a few minutes to dry.
Once the cake pops are dry, take a green food marker and draw on the green spots.
Allow the food marker to dry and that’s it!
