On this week’s episode of Dishing on Movies, we team up with @HappiLeeErin to make Pokemon-inspired, Poke Ball Cake Pops.



To make these delicious Cake Pops, you can use your own favorite recipe for cake and frosting, or even buy store bought if you wish.  But, in case you want to make it extra special, extra delicious, and homemade, you can follow these Basic Vanilla Cake and Buttercream recipes from the Kiss My Bundt Cookbook.
