  4. Using your hands begin to crumble the cake.
  5. Add ½ of the container of the prepared frosting.
  6. Now begin to blend the frosting with the crumbled cake by working the two together with your fingers.
  7. Test to make sure that you have used enough frosting by making a ball out of some of the cake/frosting mixture. Add more frosting if the cake is not holding its shape.

  14. Using two forks dip the cake pop hearts into the melted candy. Ensure that both sides of the heart are covered with the candy coating.
  15. Return the coated cake pop hearts to the freezer to harden the candy coating.
  16. Continue until all of your heart shaped cake pops are coated.
  17. While the cake pops are in the freezer again, melt your white chocolate in the microwave following the package directions.
