Make your favorite cake mix and turn them into cake balls by crumbling the cake, processing it in your Cuisinart with a dab of frosting.
Scoop out the cake ball mixture. Form into balls. Insert a sucker stick into each cake ball.
Melt white candy melts in mason jar or other microwavable safe bowl.
Dip each cake ball into the white candy melts.
Roll out ivory colored fondant (Duff White is Ivory in color) Cut strips with a rolling mincer (or knife). Set aside.
Using a bow tappit cutter, cut your bow.
Fold the two ends, meeting in the center. Wrap the small piece around the center.
Remove cake pop stick from cake pops.
Lay the strip of fondant in a curve. Place a cake ball on the top of each end. Lay the bow on the middle of the fondant strip.
Lay the cake balls side by side, creating the strand of pearls.
What a beautiful treat for Mom on Mother's Day. (Even Dad can help).
