Successful Cake Pops

Updated on April 8, 2013

Gather Ingredients

The First thing that you need to do is to gather your ingredients. The first thing that you will need is a box of chocolate or whatever flavor cake pops you want to make cake mix. Typically people like chocolate best but you can use another flavor that suites you.

The next thing that you need is to have some frosting. You can use chocolate on chocolate or vanilla or even strawberry frosting if that’s what you like.

Next, you will need to purchase some white chocolate. You can either use the Bakers brand in your bakery aisle or you can use the chocolate melts that is found in the party aisle of your local supermarket, you could save money by purchasing the items online as they offer better prices and more quanitity.

Of course you cant make cake pops without cake pop sticks. These sticks look a little like sucker or lollipop sticks but are typically longer. If you want to add sprinkles to your cake pops, then you will want to purchase some sprinkles as well.

Instructions for Cake Pops

  1. You will need to have made the cake mix already in the shape desired. Most people will make the round cake mix but it depends on how you like to bake. Once you have prepared the cake mix and already baked it, you will want to remove it from the cake pan and throw into a large glass bowl. Once inside of the bowl, you will want to crumble it up until it looks like graham cracker crumbs for a cheesecake. The crumbles should be fine crumbs.
  2. Once you have your crumbs in the bowl, you will want to add a small amount of frosting at a time. You want to only add enough frosting to make the cake pops hold a round ball shape. Once you have done this, you will want to use the ice cream scoop in order to make round balls out of the mixture. By using the ice cream scoop, you are able to make all the cake pops the same size.
  3. Once you have made all the cake mix into a ball shape, you will then need to melt your chocolate in the microwave. Once you have done this, you will then want to dip your cake pop sticks in the chocolate and then push slightly inside of the cake pops. This will help to ensure that the pops will stick to the cake mix and hold form when set onto the cake pop stand.
  4. Once you have done this, place your pops in the freezer for around 30 minutes. They will cool and the sticks will be held into the cake pops. Once you have done this, you will remove from the freezer and then dip into some of the remaining chocolate that was melted. Once you have dipped all of them, you will then want to add sprinkles or any other type of decoration you would like on your pops. The last step is to place them onto the cake pop stand. Once they are all done, you can use wrappers to wrap them and tie off with ribbon or add a sticker to.
