Creating Cake Pops: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you're eager to learn how to make cake pops, this recipe will walk you through the process, step-by-step. Here's a quick rundown of what you can expect when you try out this delicious dessert:
  • Bake cake according to cake mix directions. Once baked, allow to cool.

  • Crumble the cooled cake into a large bowl.

  • Stir frosting into the crumbled cake until the mixture is sticky and starts to come together but is not too smooth. Refrigerate until chilled, for at least 2 hours, or 30 minutes in the freezer.

  • Roll the cake mixture into eighteen 1 1/2-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate.

  • To create chocolate-covered balls, begin by melting candy melts either in a microwave or a double boiler.

  •  Coating the Cake Balls: To properly coat the cake balls, it's best to work with only two or three at a time, with the remainder in the fridge. Begin by dipping a lollipop stick about half an inch into the coating, then insert it into the center of the cake ball. Only push it about halfway through. 

  • Next, dip the cake ball into the coating until it is fully covered, ensuring that the base of the cake ball where it meets the lollipop stick is also coated. 

Decorate the top with sprinkles and place upright into a styrofoam block or cardboard box

    • Storing: 

      If you're wondering about the best way to store cake pops, it's recommended to place them in an airtight container, lined with paper towels. You can safely store them in the refrigerator for up to a week.
