Cake Pops


  1. Take baked, cooled cake (homemade or store bought) and crumble into small pieces
  2. Use basic butter cream to bind (NOTE: Moist cakes take less, dry cakes take more)
  3. Use your hands to mix the butter cream evenly throughout the crumbled cake mix until the cake mix is well moistened. (NOTE: Your cake mix should be moist enough to shape into a large mound and keep its shape.)
  4. Roll your cake mix into 1-inch balls using the palms of your hands.  (NOTE: You should be able to make about 40 cake balls from a single batch of cake mix)
  5. Stick each pop with a lollipop stick – Making sure that each one is STRAIGHT UP.
  6. Freeze pops at least 2 hours
  7. Melt chocolate (white, dark, or milk) and stir thoroughly with a spoon until COMPLETELY smooth
  8. Take a pop and dip into the melted chocolate about 1-inch.
  9. Once you’ve evenly coated the pop, gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl so as to keep excess chocolate from dripping
  10. Next, decorate the pops however you wish…. If using shavings (chocolate, coconut, sprinkles, etc..) place on pops while melted chocolate is still wet.  If doing half-dips or stripes, WAIT for first coat to set and THEN finish with second coat.
  11. Finally, place your cake pops in Styrofoam (stick down) to harden.
