Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, add the butter, sugar, dark brown sugar and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined and there are no butter chunks.

Add the eggs and pumpkin and mix just slightly.

In a separate bowl, add the cake flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder and sea salt and whisk together.

Add the milk and flour mixture to the mixing bowl and mix on low until combined into a smooth batter.

You can bake the cakes in either cupcake pans or in cake pans, whichever you choose. It doesn’t matter because you’re going to crush it all up later anyways! If using cupcake pans, line them and fill three-quarters full. If using cake pans, use three 6” pans and line them with parchment paper.

Bake for 17 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Once the cakes have cooled, remove from pans or cupcake liners and crush with your hands into a large bowl.

In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, start the frosting. Add the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk.

Dump the frosting into the bowl with the cake and crush together with your hands. You don’t wan to do this in a mixer because it will over mix.

Once the frosting and cake is fully combined, form cake balls and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the baking sheet in the freezer.

In a double boiler, melt the 567 g. white chocolate. Dip the ends of the sticks into the white chocolate, then stick into the cake balls. Place back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. This will keep the stick from coming out when you dip the cake pops.

Add the orange dye to the white chocolate and stir to combine completely.

Remove cake pops from freezer and coat in orange chocolate. Place back on parchment paper.

Once all the cake pops are covered in orange chocolate, place them back in the freezer.

In a double boiler, melt the remaining white chocolate. Once completely melted, add the green dye and stir to combine completely.

Using a spatula or even a spoon, drizzle the green chocolate over the cake pops.
Store in the fridge.
