Cake, Dessert

cake pops

Well if you’ve been on Pinterest lately or any other site that offers holiday treat recipes, you may be familiar with cake pops. If not, allow me the pleasure of the introduction 🙂

Cake pops are super easy, albeit time-consuming, to make. Today, my friend Tessa and I made some together.

what you’ll need:

  • 1 box cake mix
  • 1 can icing
  • baker’s chocolate
  • sprinkles, if desired
  • wooden skewers

how you’ll do it:

  • cut wooden skewers in half (these will be the sticks for the cake pops)
  • bake the cake according to instructions on box in 2 square or round pans
  • set the cake on cooling racks until cool
  • in a large [very large] bowl, crumble the cake
add can of icing to cake, stir until combined well in a thick consistency
using a small ‘cookie dough’ scoop, scoop out the cake/icing mix
  • put all cake balls in the freezer to harden
using a double boiler, melt baker’s chocolate, put wooden skewer in cake ball and dip in the chocolate until covered
place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet and add sprinkles
Viola! And as easy as that you have a fun and tasty treat to share!
For today’s batch, we used strawberry cake and  icing. I have also used funfetti cake and icing. 
Other ideas for cake/icing combinations:
  • chocolate cake with chocolate icing
  • chocolate cake with vanilla icing
  • vanilla cake with chocolate icing
  • strawberry cake with chocolate icing
  • pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese icing

What kind of cake pops did you make?
