Easter Cake Pops Recipe

Updated on July 25, 2014

Bakerella Easter Cake Pops

The famous baker: Bakerella came up with the cutest idea for Easter, the Easter Cake Pops. I love Bakerella, she is an amazing and creative baker, she is the one who created the mini cupcake pops.

Here I will show how Bakerella makes her very cute Easter Chickens, Easter Eggs and Easter Bunny using cake mix, frosting, decorations and a very creative mind. The cake pops are becoming very famous because they are so adorable and easy to make. Give this Easter a delicious Easter Cake Pop treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
  • 1 can frosting (16 oz.)
  • Wax paper
  • Candy Melts (choose your favorite color)
  • 1 lbs. of lollipop sticks

Instructions

  1. 1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
  2. 2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. (I use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. But, be warned, it will get messy. Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so start out by using almost the entire can and add more if you need to.)
  3. 3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
  4. 4. Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
  5. 5. Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
  6. 6. Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
  7. 7. Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don't tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
  8. 8. Place in a Styrofoam block to dry.
  9. 9. Once dry, draw faces with an edible ink pen and allow ink to dry!

Easter Eggs Cake Pops from Bakerella

Recipe From Bakerella

To decorate:

Pink Candy Melts

Yellow Candy Melts

White Candy Melts

Pastel Confetti Sprinkles

Sanding Sugars

Light Corn Syrup

Paper Lollipop Sticks

Styrofoam Block

Paramount Crystals

Small Paintbrush

Toothpicks

To decorate:

* Shape the cake balls into an egg shape.

* Dip in candy coating color of your choice.

* Let sit in the Styrofoam block until dry.

* When dry, use a small paint brush to paint on a thin layer of corn syrup in a line around the egg. Do one line at a time. Right after you paint on the syrup, sprinkle on one of the sanding colors until all of the corn syrup is covered. Use a bowl sprinkle over.

* Repeat with varying designs and colors.

* You could probably also do this with the melted candy color, but this time I was experimenting and tried the corn syrup.

* For the confetti sprinkles, either dab a little bit of the candy color with your toothpick and glue on the sprinkle shapes or use a little bit of the corn syrup to act as the glue. The corn syrup will take a little longer to dry.

* Dry completely.

Decorate Your Easter Egg Cake Pops With Beautiful Pastel Sprinkles and Cake Decorations

Easter Bunny Cake Pop Recipe from Bakerella

  • Pink Candy Melts
  • White Candy Melts
  • Jumbo Heart Sprinkles
  • Pastel Confetti Sprinkles
  • Pink
  • Blue & Black edible ink pens
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • Paramount Crystals
  • Pastel Candy Corn
  • Styrofoam Block

Instructions

  1. * Shape the balls into a bunny head shape.
  2. * Dip in candy coating color of your choice and let dry.
  3. * Use the rounded side of a cookie cutter and cut of the end of the candy corn. Dip the end in a little bit of the melted candy coating and adhere it to the top of the bunny head. Hold in place until it sets. If your candy coating isn’t too hot, this should just take a few seconds.
  4. * Let the bunny heads with ears sit in the Styrofoam block until all the ears are dry.
  5. * When dry, use a little bit of melted candy coating to glue the facial features on. Use a toothpick and dab a little of the coating in position for the eyes and nose and adhere the sprinkles.
  6. * When the eyes and noses are dry, use your pens to draw on the mouth. Then draw on the eye color and pupils.
  7. (Read the full instructions for making Cake Pops before you begin.)
  8. Note: to get smoother covered pops, make sure your bowl is deep enough to submerge the entire pop. Try to dip it in one dunking motion and remove. If the chocolate is too thick, add some paramount crystals or some shortening to the melted candy coating to thin it out. Remove the pop, holding it in your left hand. tap your left wrist lightly with your right hand and rotate the lollipop stick over your bowl. The excess chocolate should fall off, smoothing out the coating at the same time. Also, make sure the coating surrounds the stick at the base to secure it.

White and Pastel Candy Melts and Candy Corn for the Easter Bunney Cake Pops

Easter Spring Chicken Cake Pops - From the mastermind of Cake Pops... Bakerella

  • Cake mix and frosting (basic cake pop recipe)
  • Yellow Candy Melts
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • Black Edible Ink Pen
  • Paramount Crystals
  • Rainbow Candy Coated Chips
  • Pastel Wild Flower Sprinkles
  • Diamond Shape Sprinkles

Instructions

  1. * Once the round yellow candy covered cake pops are dry (again, basic cake pops instructions here), use a toothpick to dip into the melted candy coating. Dab a little dot of the coating where you want the beak to go. Then, just take one of the orange rainbow chips and attach it to the pop. It works like glue.
  2. * For the feet and wings, use the same technique to glue on the other sprinkle shapes.
  3. * Use the edible ink pen to draw the eyes.

      I tried to make the chicks. I didn't understand #4 in the instructions about the chocolate. I was using candy melts. It was a big mess and the cake part wasn't like cake at all. Sorry, I would have to rate it with 1 star.
