Olympic Torch Cupcakes: Recipe

Olympic Torch Cake Pops
You will need:
1 packages (16oz) Vanilla CandiQuik Coating
1 box cake mix (your choice of flavor, plus ingredients for cake mix)
8 oz. cake frosting
Orange (oil or powder based) food coloring
Waffle ice cream cones
8 Fruit-flavored rolls (cherry or strawberry)

1. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on box; cool.
2. Crumble cooled cake into a large bowl. Mix thoroughly with frosting (it may be easier to use fingers to mix together).
3. Chill for approximately 2 hours in refrigerator (or place in the freezer to shorten time).
4. Chop the top of the waffle cones off, so the cones measure approximately 2 ½ inches tall.
5. Roll cake mixture into medium sized balls and chill briefly in refrigerator until somewhat firm (about 30 minutes).
6. Melt Vanilla CandiQuik according to package directions. Stir in orange food coloring until desired color is established.
7. Press a cake ball on top of the mini waffle cone. Dip the top of the cake ball into the CandiQuik by holding the end of the cone. Allow the excess coating to drip off.
8. Quickly apply the flame-shaped fruit pieces, beginning at the base and working towards the top of the cone. If the coating dries before all the flames are attached, use a toothpick to add more coating to the cone.
9. Stick cones into a Styrofoam block to set completely.
