Scrape the icing off of the cake with a spatula and place it in a mixing bowl.
Put the cake (in pieces) into another mixing bowl. Break it up into crumbs with a spatula or with your hands.
Once the cake is broken up, add the icing. Add small amounts at a time until the cake easily sticks together like a dough, but isn’t super sticky.
Roll the cake dough into balls and place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
If you want to avoid flat sides of your cake pops, put the sticks in immediately and place right side up in a cup or something with holes that can hold the sticks upright and have enough space in between the pops that they aren’t touching.
Place in freezer for approximately an hour.
Melt chocolate and coconut oil (or small amount of shortening) in microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring well in between each interval.
Once chocolate is fully melted and smooth, take cake pops out of the freezer and pour chocolate onto the cake pops spoonfuls at a time until fully covered. Hold the cake pop over a bowl until excess chocolate has dripped off. OR you can dip the cake ball into a small bowl of chocolate, then pull up and let the excess chocolate drip off.
Sprinkle tops with sprinkles if you like, then place the pops in a cake pop stand or lay them flat on the parchment paper. Leave to set for 15-30 minutes.
