Any cake, baked and cooled
1-2 cups of icing (any kind)
White candy melts or almond bark
Tall mug or other heatproof glass
colored sugar in red, yellow & blue*
Styrofoam block or disk
* I do not recommend the 4-pack of colored sugars, even though all three colors are in there because you can't pour the sugar out (or back in). I recommend buying individual bottles of each color.
Break your cake into pieces and set into a large bowl. Make small crumbs with a fork or your fingers. Add icing about 1/2 cup at a time to the crumbs until they form a mixture that will hold a ball shape. Using a dough scoop or Tablespoon, roll the dough into balls. LET SET IN THE REFRIGERATOR AT LEAST 3 HOURS or overnight.
Dip about 1/4 inch of the stick into the melted candy. Insert the stick about halfway into the cake ball.
Then tap the stick gently against the side of the mug to allow excess candy to drip off.
* As I mentioned above, buy individual bottles of sprinkles for each color. Shaking them out of a multi-pack is an immense waste of time and sprinkles because you can't get them back in there.
