- Aqua blue food coloring gel
- 1 cup of vegetable shortening
- 2 sticks of butter
- 2 LBS (pounds) of powdered sugar
- 4 Tablespoons of milk
- Candy Eyes
- Electric mixer
- Cakesicle molds (they come with popsicle sticks for the molds)
- Pastry bag
- Frosting tip
- 9 X 13 dish
- Parchment paper
- Cookie sheet
- Start by making the cake; follow the package directions for ingredients and mixing the cake.
- Place parchment paper in the bottom of the 9 X 13 dish, and pour the cake batter into the dish, and bake as directed. When the cake is done, cool completely.
- Make the cookies; follow the directions on the package, and make the cookies small for the mouth decorations. Cool the cookies.
- While the cake is cooling, mix the frosting; In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, blend the vegetable shortening and butter until smooth and creamy.
- Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, alternating with the milk, and blending between additions, until the frosting is thick and creamy.
- Add blue food coloring gel until desired color is achieved. Cover, and place frosting in the refrigerator until time to decorate the cake popsicles.
- When the cake is cool, break the cake up into crumbs, right into the dish you baked it in, and sprinkle mini chocolate chips over the cake.
- Add the frosting to the cake, a 1/2 cup at a time, until you have equal amounts of cake and frosting, and a creamy ball of cake. Set aside.
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt 8 squares of the White Chocolate almond bark in the microwave on 10 second intervals until the chocolate is melted.
- Remove from microwave, and add the aqua gel food coloring until you have the desired color of aqua blue.
- With a spoon, place a heaping tablespoon of the blue chocolate into each of the cake popsicle molds, and turn the molds back and forth, coating the inside of the molds with the blue chocolate.
- Follow the guides at the bottom of the cakesicle mold, and insert the popsicle sticks into the mold, and onto the blue chocolate.
- Place the mold into the freezer, and allow the chocolate to set (about an hour).
- Press the cake mixture into the cake popsicle molds until the molds are full of cake, and level with the sides of the molds.
- Place a generous amount of the blue chocolate over the cake, sealing the cake-sicles in the molds.
- Place the molds back in the freezer and allow them to remain in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results. When you're ready to decorate the cakesicles; remove the cakesicles from the molds, and set aside.
- Place the frosting tip in the pastry bag, and place the blue frosting in the bag. Squeeze the frosting onto the top of the cakesicles in quick short bursts, until the cakesicle is covered with the frosting (see photos).
- Add eyes, and place half of a mini chocolate chip cookie for the mouth.
Cakesicles can be served immediately. If not serving until later, place the cakesicles in a single layer, and place in the refrigerator until time to serve.
