Delicious Cake Pops

April 25, 2020

We are deep into this quarantine and let me tell you at first I was like, cool with it and looked forward to the time at home, now I am just over it in so many ways. I have been going to work each day under extreme precaution. Funny how suddenly the lunch ladies became essential and we are rocking out some amazing meals with style and grace. My routine is work, home, work, home. 

Here on the homefront things are kind of the same day after day. Ella is doing classes online and, that is going really well, and it's just like going to school as she heads into her room each morning and comes out each afternoon with homework. 

I have been cooking a bunch here at home but, we have reserved to take out a few nights of the week and, I am ok with this plan.

 Many home projects are getting completed like the back porch has been getting a refresh(more on that later and today some painting is happening) Good times!

Ella has always loved being in the kitchen with me since she was very small and, she comes up with recipes here and there and we will make them together and it just feels good as a Momma to have this time with my daughter.

We thought we would cake pops a try and let me tell you, they are so yummy and would make cute treats to give to friends.

Heads up this is a time-consuming recipe, but the end result is adorable cake pops and it makes a bunch.  

How to make delicious cake pops
Don't these just look adorable

Which cake mix will you use?

We used Funfetti cake mix and Vanilla icing for ours but, you can use any flavor cake mix and icing you want. I'm thinking red velvet would be really great.


It only takes a few supplies

Here are the supplies you will need:
Candy melts we went with pink
Sprinkles for the tops
A foam holder for the pops to hang out on
lollipop sticks 
parchment paper
cake mix 
cake icing


Cake Pops are not just for weddings or baby showers. Cake Pops are a cute way to have to dessert any time you want it. Easy to wrap and save and many different icing options. Make a batch today and give a cake pop to a friend.

Start off by baking the cake. When the cake is done baking, you need to run a knife along the edges to cut off the crust because you don't want this in your cake.

After the cake cools you are going to need to crumble it all up and you can do this by hand or use a mixer. I used a mixer as it was faster and broke up the cake mix better.

The next step is to take an ice cream scoop or something small and scoop out the mix into your hand. Roll into a nice ball and place on parchment paper.

Melt a small amount of chocolate and dip the sticks in the chocolate and place lollipop sticks into the balls.

Place in the freezer to cool for about 20 minutes.

Sorry, I missed taking pictures of the double broiler action but you understand how to melt chocolate then roll your cake pops in it. 

Use the foam to hold the pops while they dry. 

*TIP- Do not put the cake pops in the fridge something about moisture and the chocolate is a bad combo.
Cover with sprinkles and enjoy.
