Somewhere Over the Rainbow Cake Pop

While perusing the wonders of Pinterest the other day (and potentially procrastinating on homework) Ashley came across the inside-out rainbow cake pop originally found on Babble.  Inside-out doesn't mean there's chocolate on the inside and cake around it.  What it means is a surprise pop of color in your cake pop.  Normally we'd say go check out our Cake Pops 101, but this time because there's different colors here's the step-by-step.

Start with a white cake box and follow the instructions for mixing. Then separate the white batter into however many colors you want.  We made 4.  But go all out and try 5 if you want.  However, don't be too much of an overachiever for this one.  Something crazy like 8 colors would be a nightmare!

Mix and create new colors with food coloring.  We started with regular red, yellow, blue and green.

We made cupcakes. If you want to make a mini-cake go for it. The goal is to bake the colors separately so you can keep the colors distinct.

Once they have cooled, crumble the cupcakes by color into separate bowls.  Add the vanilla frosting--it was about 2 middle sized spoons. Our caution is to add a small bit at a time, too much frosting isn't good.

Once crumbled. Take a small section of each color and add together to form one cake ball. Any combo works... be creative.

It's time to freeze the cake balls and wait 15 minutes, or refrigerate for a few hours.

Pick any color for the outside and dip them in the melting chocolate.  We liked the idea of having a perfectly white and somewhat plain cake pop, to then be surprised on the inside.

We had leftover chocolate so we added a couple drops of red food coloring, oil based, to make pink for a swirl on the outside.

When you bite into these cake pops......... Rainbow!
