How To Make Cake Pops
  • A box cake mix and ingredients to make the cake
  • Up to ⅓ cup of frosting
  • Cake pop dough scoop
  • Candy melts
  • Chocolate melting pot (optional)
  • Lollipop sticks or colorful paper straws
  • Cake pop stand
  1. Follow the directions on a box of cake mix with one exception: use only half the amount of oil.
  2. Let the baked cake cool completely. Then, crumble the cake into fine crumbs using your hands or a food processor.
  3. Add a small amount of frosting to your cake crumbs and thoroughly combine using your hands. Continue to add small amounts of frosting until your crumb mixture becomes the consistency of clay.
  4. Chill your cake pop dough overnight or quickly in the freezer
  5. Roll the cake mixture into balls about 1.25" wide.
  6. Microwave your candy melts in a bowl on low power for 30-seconds at a time. Stop and stir after each 30-second interval then repeat until the coating is completely melted.
  7. Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the melted coating and then into a cake ball, gently pushing until the stick is about half way through the cake ball. Turn your cake pop upright and set it in your cake pop stand.
  8. Dip each cake pop straight down into the melted coating until the cake ball is completely covered and sealed. Remove the cake pop from the melted coating by pulling it straight up. Then, turn the cake pop at an angle and gently tap off any excess coating. Turn the cake pop upright.
  9. Set your cake pops in your cake pop stand until the coating has hardened. Or while the coating is still wet use sprinkles, candies, or sugars to decorate your cake pops.
