How to Make Yummy Cake Pops

By Pinkwhen @pinkwhen
I made this tutorial for How To Make Yummy Cake Pops  over Easter and never shared it.  Mostly because it was over Easter, and we were so busy I just let it sit in my "posting soon" box.   While cleaning up all of my pictures and emails I realized I never finished it! So here is a very late, but great tutorial on How to Make Yummy Cake Pops! Picture Cake Pops How to Make Yummy Cake Pops Here is a list of what you will need:
  • Cake mix of your choice
  • Frosting of your choice
  • Popsicle sticks
  • A foam box flower display holder (or something to place the sticks in)
  • Chocolate Candy Melts of your color choice
  • Sprinkles and decoration for your cake pops

The first thing you want to do is bake your cake.  Make sure that it is baked all the way thru, and then let it cool for a couple of hours.   After it has completely cooled, crumble it into a large mixing bowl and scoop in your cup of frosting.  Then mix thoroughly with your hands.

Roll your balls up by hand, and place them on a cookie sheet.  
Once you have placed all of your cake balls on the cookie sheet, place them in the refrigerator for several hours.  I actually like to keep mine in over night.

Here is how I do it:
I take my chocolate melts, add a tsp of vegetable oil, and heat in the microwave until melted. (about 1 minute in the microwave, and stirring after the first 30 seconds)
Dip the end of a popsicle stick into the chocolate, and then into the cake ball. Picture adding the popsicle sticks to the cake balls After the popsicle sticks have cooled for a few minutes, it's time to decorate!
Take your favorite colored chocolate melts and start dipping your cake balls one at a time.  It's easier to dip the entire cake ball, and I like to use a toothpick to help swirl the chocolate around as it starts to harden.  
Make sure to add your sprinkles or any decoration before they completely dry, and serve. Picture How to make Yummy Cake Balls How to Make Yummy Cake Pops How to Make Yummy Cake Pops
