Cake pops are delicious in any form, but are especially appealing in the shape of adorable gingerbread boys and girls. To make, bake a boxed or homemade cake in a 13-inch by 9-inch pan as directed. Crumble cake and mix with a can of frosting. Form cake mixture into a flat layer and cut out with a mini gingerbread man cookie cutter. Chill the cutouts. Next, dip a lollipop stick into melted chocolate and insert into the cutout to hold the stick in place. Dip the entire cutout in melted chocolate and tap on the side of the bowl to remove excess. Let dry, then decorate with red and white icing. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
