Hi everyone! For a while now I have been dying to attempt to make these delicious little treats and the past weekend I finally did! If you don`t know what a cake pop is it`s pretty much cake mixed with icing, coated in chocolate! They are super fun and great for parties and just if you want to try something new! So you only need a few simple ingredients!
Cake, pretty much make the box cake mix of your choice!
Icing, which ever flavor you want but I think vanilla is your best choice!
Candy Melts, these can be found at craft stores and you can choose from the many color selections that they sell!
Lollipop Sticks, you can find these at craft stores too
Styrofoam, this is to place your cake pops in!
So step one, cut your cake into four sections then crumble each section into a large bowl. Then take the icing and put it into the bowl with your crumbled cake. You don`t need to use the whole container of icing either. Mix the two together until it get sort of like a paste feel to it. Then start rolling the cake mixture into ball and placing them on trays covered with wax paper. When you are done making the balls put the trays into the freezer for about 15 min. This will help make the cake balls become more firm. While you wait melt the candy melts. Basically just follow the instructions on the back of the bag. After you take the balls out of the freezer put them in the refrigerator so they are not frozen. Then take them out to begin coating them. To coat them take a lollipop stick and dip the top of it into the melted chocolate.The place the cake ball onto the stick and submerge in into the melted chocolate to coat it. Do not stir the cake pop in the chocolate or else it will become loose! Take it out and slowly tap of any excess. Then if you want add some sprinkles and stick it in the styrofoam block to dry! Then repeat with all the other cake balls until you have a bunch of cute and delicious cake pops! I packed some into little treat bag and brought them to school and everyone loved them! If you are really interested in these I suggest you check out the book Cake Pops by Bakerella! It has a lot of designs and tips! Thanks so much for reading!
