  • 1 package white or vanilla cake mix
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 containers vanilla frosting
  • 1 14oz bag sweetened coconut flakes
  • lollipop sticks
  • Everest printables download below
  • scissors glue stick + tape


  • Make cake according to directions on the back of the box.
  • Let the cake cool slightly, then crumble it into crumbs using a fork.
  • Place cake crumbs in a large bowl and add ½ can of frosting. Mix with your hands until evenly combined.
  • Roll cake into round golf ball sized balls, then place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Freeze for one hour.
  • Place shredded coconut in a food processor for 30 seconds, or until the flakes look more like soft snow. Set aside.
  • Microwave the remaining frosting in a microwave safe dish for 30 seconds. *Tip - a small bowl works best so the frosting is nice and deep. Heat for an additional 30 seconds, if needed, so that the frosting is thin and runny.
  • Drop a cake ball into the frosting until covered completely. Pull out with a fork and tap the side of the bowl to get the excess frosting off.
  • Roll the ball into the coconut flakes 'til completely covered, then place on a sheet of wax paper.
  • Let them set for a few minutes, or until the frosting has hardened.
  • Cut out each printable piece, then wrap a printable flag around each stick, securing with some glue. Tape an Everest face onto the top of each stick, then stick through the middle of each cake pop.
  • Serve and enjoy!
