What you need:
A cake mix
1 can cream cheese frosting
Paper lollipop sticks
A Styrofoam block
Yellow candy melt (to cover the cake pop)
Rainbow candy coated chips (yellow= wings, orange= beak)
Pastel wild flower sprinkles (orange = feet)
Black edible marker

Bake cake mix according to package directions in a 9x13 inch dish. Once it has completely cooled, crumble the cake into a large bowl. Mix the can of cream cheese frosting into the bowl (spoon/fingers doesn't matter).
Next roll into small balls and place on lollipop sticks. (I haven't actually made these so you might have to make the balls, then cool in the fridge or freezer for a little while, then add the sticks.) Once on stick place in Styrofoam block to keep upright.

Melt the candy melt according to package instructions. Once cake pops are thoroughly chilled, dip them in the melted candy melt and let cool/dry. To make it nice and smooth make sure the candy melt is in a bowl deep enough to submerge the cake pop entirely.

Once dry you can add the details. Use a little of the candy melt to "glue" on the candy coated chips and sprinkles. All you need is a small dab of the candy melt, use a tooth pick to dip into the candy melt and place a small spot on the cake pop where you want to apply the decoration.

After all that is done add the eyes using your black edible pen.

TA DA! Beautiful, Yummy CAKE POPS!
