Posted on

Cake pops are a delicious and adorable way to celebrate any occasion. All you need is some cake, some frosting, and some popsicle molds. Here’s how to make them easily and quickly.

Ingredients

– cake mix

– popsicle molds

– food coloring

– candy melts

– small containers for popping the cake pops

– kitchen shears or a pizza cutter

– paper towel or oven mitts- cooking spray

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, food coloring, and candy melts until well combined. Pour the batter into the popsicle molds and freeze for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.

3. Once the cake pops are frozen, use kitchen shears or a pizza cutter to cut them into desired shapes (I used hearts). Place the cake pops on the prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking spray if desired.

4. Let the cake pops sit in the freezer for another 10 minutes or until hardened. Serve immediately!

How to Make Cake Pops

Making cake pops is a simple and fun way to enjoy your favorite dessert without all the work. All you need are some cake balls and a little bit of frosting to get started. Here are some tips on how to make the best cake pops possible:

1. Make sure your cake balls are well-formed and evenly sized. They should be roughly the size of a golf ball.

2. Frost the top of each cake ball with a thin layer of frosting. You can use any flavor you like, but we recommend sticking with classic vanilla or chocolate for the best results.

3. Stick the frosted cake balls into a freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up. This will make it easier to insert them into your cake pop molds later on.

4. Choose your favorite cake pop mold and fill it with a few inches ofcake batter. Be sure to cap off the top of the batter so that it doesn’t burst during baking.

5. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the cake pops for about 8-10 minutes, until they are golden brown in color and spring back when gently pressed with your finger.

6. Remove thecake pops from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for Making Cake Pops

Cake pops are the perfect way to enjoy a delicious dessert without having to worry about preparation or cleanup. Here are tips for making perfect cake pops every time:

1. Choose your cake carefully. The cake should be of the right texture and flavor, and it should bepop-able. Avoid overly rich or dense cakes, since they will not pop well.

2. Preheat the oven before you start to make your cake pops. This will help to ensure that the cake pops come out evenly cooked and crispy.

3. Use a baking sheet that is large enough so that you can fit as many cakes as possible on it at once. This will help to minimize the amount of time needed to bake the cake pops and also ensure that they cook evenly.

4. Use a silicone baking mat or parchment paper to prevent sticking and ensure even baking.

5. Assemble the cake pops by putting a layer of cake on the bottom of a silicone cupcake holder or ice cream scoop, then filling it with desired filling (e.g., whipped cream, frosting, fruit, etc.). Pressing down slightly on the cake pop will help to form an even shape. Repeat until all ofthe cake pops are filled.

6. Stick the cake pops in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or until hardened.

7. Remove the cake pops from the freezer by gently pressing down on the top of each one with a spoon or your hands. This will help to release them from the silicone cupcake holder or ice cream scoop.

8. Serve immediately, either warm or cold.
