To make this, I followed the instructions on Bon Appetit, but instead of making the cake from scratch, i just baked a layer of cake in a sheet pan for 20 minutes @ 350 degrees and then followed all of the steps. Everyone loved it and its always a big hit!

I wanted to do something fun, Patriotic, and simple for the 4th of July. With a full time job, and not a lot of free time on the side, I had to do something fast and easy. I love holidays, and my favorite part of the Fourth of July is the beautiful firework display that you can see everywhere. I wanted to mimic the fun, playfulness of it all, so I decided to make firework cake bites! I used funfetti cake mix to mimic the different colors in the sky, and then I used Pop Rocks candy on top so that they would pop in your mouth when you ate them!
In the morning I melted the white chocolate in a bowl, making sure I stirred it a lot to temper the chocolate. Then I rolled the frozen cake balls in the chocolate. Placed them back on the wax paper, and QUICKLY sprinkled them with Pop Rocks candy. They set up pretty quickly, so I just placed them on a platter and brought them to dinner!
