Place a sheet of wax paper down with paper towels on top of it to protect your work surface. Arrange 6 – 7 petals to create your flowers. There was enough for 12 flowers plus a few extra. Spray the flower petals with the Wilton Color Mist to tint. Follow the instructions and hold the spray can above the candy as directed to avoid speckles and drips.
Set aside 24 candy melt disks and melt the remainder of the bag.
Use the melted candy melts to attach the center and the petals to the candy disk. Set aside the flowers while making the cake pop batter.
Use 1/4 of a 9x13 chocolate cake and a tablespoon of chocolate frosting. Mix and measure out 12 cake pop balls. Dip a straw into the candy melts, then into a cake pop ball. Complete adding all the straws first.
Dip the cake pop into the candy melts and coat completely. Tap off excess and stand up to dry OR place down on a candy melt. Complete dipping all the pops.
For the upright cake pops, add some candy swirls and coat in sprinkles, then add the prepared candy flower.
For the candy apple style cake pops, re-dip the bottom half and add sprinkles to decorate.
Attach the flower with candy melts and add your ladybug candy.
