Let me begin by warning you that these are labor intensive. Other cake pop designs seem to take a lot less time for me. If you know of a faster way of making these, please let me know. So you think you've got the time to make these? Okay, cool, let's go!
Try your best to divide your cake batter into equal amounts so you don't end up with too much of one color. Easier said than done, right?
I added a heaping teaspoonful of cream cheese frosting to each bowl. Remember to use one spoon per bowl so you don't end up with a mix of crumb colors. And keep each bowl away from the others when mixing to keep the colored crumbs from flying into other bowls.
I will note here that I am a huge fan of the 1971 version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. As I was making these, I was whisked to the scene about the Everlasting Gobstoppers. They looked quite similar to what's in the photo to the left! Okay, back to the cake pops...
I gently kept working them together until....
Working with all these colors reminded me of working with play-dough. That's the kind of consistency you should have.
This last photo was of a pop that my 3 year old daughter was eating. She was thrilled at all the colors inside this cake pop.
Not only are these rainbow cake pops visually stunning, but they taste amazing! I strongly encourage you to give these a try. They're worth the effort. What a great way to bring a sweet rainbow into someone's day!
