How To Make CakePops! Instructions: Photos And Videos

Source

Let’s make CakePops! I’ll show you how to make Tigers and Puppy Dogs. There are many more animals you can make using this method, but for now we’ll just make Tigers and Puppy Dogs.

These adorable little CakePops are all the rage now. I’m always late jumping on present day bandwagons, but I just want to share how to make these little guys. My daughter showed me photos of some of these she made for a child’s Birthday party. She made Tigers, Monkeys and Puppy Dogs. I just fell in love with them! I begged her to show me how to make these. These instructions will yield 18 of little animals. I think you will find them irresistible, too.

This project will take two people to make everything run smooth. As one person dips the CakePops, another person should be standing by to attach the eyes, nose and mouths. It is time consuming, but I have to say we had a fun afternoon, shopping for these and making them.

If you want to stand the CakePops upright, you will need a Styrofoam block to stand them in to dry and to work on them. We preferred to place each one in a wax paper lined cookie sheet “on their heads”. They are more stable that way to transport or display. You can also place each CakePop in it’s own separate plastic bag and tie a ribbon around the top for a special occasion. We were going to use the ones we made for a Birthday party, so we just arranged ours on a serving tray. They were “the hit of the party”.

Very Important!

After you have made the balls and have them on the tray, place them in the refrigerator or freezer for at least two hours. You want them to be very firm before dipping them in the warm melted chocolate.


We Bought Our Supplies For the CakePops

We made a trip to our local crafts store where we bought the supplies to make Tigers and Puppy Dogs:

Wilton’s candy melts. 1 bag of chocolate for the Puppy dogs, 1 bag of orange for the Tigers, and

1 bag of black for the Tiger Stripes.

1 package of Popsicle sticks.

I container of Wilton sprinkles (Flowerful Medley)

1 Edible Black Frosting Pen

Then, we went to the grocery store to buy: 1 box of yellow cake mix, and 1 container of Pillsbury’s Creamy Supreme Classic White Frosting. You could use any flavor cake mix you like.

1 bag of Reece’s Pieces for the animal’s ears and nose.

Chcolate Morsels if you like for the ears on the dogs.

Make The Cake For The CakePops

You’ll need: About a Tablespoon of Crisco to add to the melted chocolate to make it smooth.

A Pastry Bag with a very small tip to make the tiger’s stripes.

A double boiler. I just use a small saucepan over a larger pan of hot water to melt the chocolate melts.

First make the cake. We used two 8 ½ x 8 ½ square pans. After the cake has cooled, cut it, and crumble it between your hands into a large bowl. Add about ½ of the can of frosting. Mix this well. Roll the balls with your hands about 2 inches in diameter. Place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate for at least two hours. The balls will get firm. Our yield was 18 balls.

Instructions For The Tiger CakePops

FOR THE TIGERS: Melt about half the bag of Orange Candy Melts. Add about 1 tablespoon of Crisco. Place a Popsicle Stick that has been dipped in the melted candy about ¼ inch, and then into the middle of a ball. Dip the entire ball with the stick into the melted candy. Place on the cookie sheet to dry. Do 9 balls in the Orange Melt

In the container of Sprinkles, find 36 round white pieces (these will be the eyes of the tiger and the dogs). Make a dot in the middle of the eye with the edible marking pen. We used white round pieces for the tigers, and blue and green for the dog’s eyes.

Dip a toothpick into the melted Orange candy melt and place that drop onto the Tiger where the eyes will go. Quickly place the Tiger’s eyes on the head. Cut the Reese’s Pieces in half. Do the same for the nose, mouth and ears. We used heart shaped sprinkles for the Tiger's mouth and star shaped sprinkles for the hair around the mouth. You will have to hold the pieces for a minute until they dry. This is where you need an extra set of hands. After the heads are completely dry, melt just a little of the black chocolate candy melts. Add just a little Crisco. Use the pastry bag with a tiny opening to make the stripes on the tiger.

Instructions For The Puppy Dog CakePops

FOR THE PUPPY DOGS: Melt about half the bag of Chocolate Candy Melts. Add a little Crisco. Use the same directions for the tigers to attach the Popsicle sticks and to dip the balls. Use the toothpick to place the nose and ears on the dogs.

Refrigerate overnight. You can store leftover melted candy in the refrigerator.

I’m already thinking of using the leftover orange melted candy for Jack O Lantern CakePops. Your imagination will just run wild when you think of all the possibilities. Just use multicolored sprinkles on the CakePops if you don’t want to make animals. I want to do some Turkeys for Thanksgiving. I can do Snowmen and Christmas trees for Christmas! These are just SO much fun to make! I hope you will enjoy making some CakePop animals.

These are so adorable, and as you wrote, there is much potential to let one's creative imagination think of so many other possibilities.

Loved this hub and voted it up across the board except for funny. Will also share it.

Can you add the 5 star rating system? If so, I'll come back and give it 5 stars.

Hub Hugs,

These are gorgeous. Mine never turn out that way. Love the idea of the double boiler for the chocolate. I always microwave mine and have to hurry to get them all done before it hardens. Next time I'm at the craft store I'm going to have to look for edible pens.

mary615 4 years ago from Florida Author

Hi, unknown spy, you can certainly make CakePops. They are really very easy to make; wish you would try some. I don't cook "exotic", but I like to make things like this.

Thanks for reading and commenting, Mary

mary615 4 years ago from Florida Author

Hi, Glimmer Twin Fan. I'm glad you like my CakePops. I have tried melting chocolate in the microwave, but it never works. Melting it in a pan over boiling water is the best way I've found. I used to have a double boiler, but it just disappeared. It is better if you have some help before the melted chocolate hardens.

I never knew about the edible pens until my daughter told me about them. They are great. Mary

This looks like a perfect thing for my two daughters....and the photos you have included make it seem very possible to do....I showed my 6 year old the photos and see is ready to skip dinner and start making CakePops....currently Popcorn Balls(another HubPage recipe is her favorite thing to make) is her favorite thing to make...but I suspect that CakePops might bump Popcorn Balls from the top spot. Voted up and useful.....and Samantha gives it a thumbs up too.

Hi, Cogerson. your girls would love to do this, I'm sure. You will probably have to help them a little, but just let them try. I'm so happy the girls liked my CakePops.

mpropp 4 years ago from Minnesota

These are the cutest cake pops I think I've ever seen....I have seen the advertisements for the cake pop maker (it looks like a little donut maker press) where you just pour the cake mix into the molds and make the cake pops that way. I never bought the cake pop maker, so I didn't think they could be made without that special piece of equipment. Now I read your hub and see how you make them from a regular cake pan, but just broke up and formed into a ball! Why didn't I think of that?! Thanks so much for explaining step by step. This will be a fun activity to do with my kids!

Hi ComfortB. I read your Hub on making cakepops using the pop pans. Nice Hub. I haven't tried using them. Very interesting....My granddaughter and I made these for a party. She taught me how to do it. Today, I make some and dipped them in the white candy to make mummies. They turned out really cute! I made some Jack O Lanterns last week that looked cute, too.

Hi, dwarchira. I do hope you will make some of these CakePops with your son. My grandchildren love to help me make these, and they enjoy decorating them. We just made some Mummies and Ghosts. They were so simple....just dip in white melted chocolate and decorate!

Thanks so much for the vote and the share, I appreciate that, Mary

Hi, Kris Heeter. I'm so glad you think my CakePops are cute! You don't have to be brave to try to make these, honestly. Kids just love to help make and decorate them: my grandkid's favorite is the tiger. I do hope you will make them and let me know how they turn out.

YOU are too much....is there anything you can't do? You publish such wonderful hubs on just about everything and if you'll pardon my saying so, this one takes the cake!

Great directions, great videos and great cake pops!

Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting! Shared with my followers.

I love making cake pops! I too have a hub on them and I after reading yours I now know that dipping the sticks in the melted chocolate first might help :) Thanks!!!! Voted up, shared and pinned!

Oh, tillsontitan! You just made my day with your nice compliment. I am sort of a "Jack of all trades, but master of none!" I love trying new things, and I was so happy to learn how make CakePops.

I made Jack 'O Lanterns at Halloween, and they turned out SO cute. Now, I'm thinking of turkeys!!!

Thanks for the votes, and the share, I appreciate that, Mary

Hi, CassyLu1981. I wish we could put a link to our Hubs in the comments! I just looked at your Hubs to find your CakePops Hub. You have so many great Hubs, but I couldn't find it. What is the Title??

Yes, dipping the sticks in the melted chocolate makes the stick stay in place.

My mistake was not getting the balls cold enough before dipping. That is so important, otherwise, the ball will come apart.

Thanks so much for the votes, share, and Pin, Mary

BTW: would you like to link our two Hubs?

I would LOVE to link our hubs :) My cake pop making is actually in the Ideas on how to throw an Ice Cream Party for kids hub. The first picture is of the crumbling of the cake :) Now that I look at them again I love how they turned out and my kids had a blast helping! Just put a link to yours in mine :) Thanks again for the links! And I will be trying your secrets soon!

Thanks for this, Mary. I have tried to make these pops using a different recipe and I had cake flops instead of pops. Your photos and step by step directions make this look like something I can try anew.

Sending you many Angels this evening.:) ps


mary615 profile image

mary615 3 years ago from Florida Author

Hi pstraubie48. You cracked me up when you said you made cake flops! I made the bad mistake of dipping mine once when they were not cold enough. The cake part fell off of the stick and into the melted chocolate. The cake balls should be frozen or at least very cold when you dip them.

I do hope you will try to make these again. If you have any problems, just let me know, OK?

My best to you, Mary

Oh wow, Mary...I just saw these in a cooking magazine and was so confused...typical.

You took this concept and made it understandable, so visual with the photography and your detailed and fun instructions.

Now I feel good about trying this and I thank you.

Voted UP and very UABI. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Maria


mary615 profile image

mary615 3 years ago from Florida Author

Hi marcoujor. I do hope you will try and make some CakePops. Most directions I have seen for them are hard to follow, so I tried to make my Hub easy to follow.

I got a double boiler for Mother's Day, so the job of melting the chocolate will now be easier for me.

Thanks so much for reading and for the votes, Mary

Good to see you, Mary


mary615 profile image

mary615 2 years ago from Florida Author

Hi, VVanNess Yes, the stick will slide right out IF the cake pop is not cold enough. You must keep them in the refrig. till you're ready to insert the stick. Try again and keep them cold, OK?

Thanks for reading and commenting, Mary

Hi Mary, Great explanation about how to make cake pops. I tried before and they did not come out very nice. I found that they needed to stay refrigerated as well or they seemed to melt some. Do you have any recommendations for that?


mary615 profile image

mary615 2 years ago from Florida Author

Hi there, vocalcoach, It makes me so happy to hear you made these cake pops! We made Jack O'Lanterns for Halloween, and we are going to snowmen at Christmastime! That should be fun!

Thanks so much for reading, commenting, and the shares!


mary615 profile image

mary615 2 years ago from Florida Author

Hi mdscoggins Oh, yes, as I tried to explain in the Hub, after the balls are made, they must refrigerated so they are cold when dipped. Otherwise, they will fall apart!!

I hope you will try again. The video I enclosed is a helpful one, and there are many more on YouTube.
