We love hand held desserts. One cake pop will satisfy that sweet tooth and can be eaten like a piece of cake without even needing a plate. Of course, no one sticks to one cake pop at a time. While the intent may be there, a cake pop is really just two bites of cake, so what’s the harm in having two, three, or even four bites? ! We don’t play by anyone else’s rules, and we’ve been known to consume far more than our “serving size.” These are perfect for parties, birthdays, or any day of the week you need to treat yourself!
You can use store-bought pre-made cakes, cake mixes, or make cakes from scratch for cake bombs. You can use any cake you like. Red velvet, carrot cake, chocolate, strawberries, the sky is endless!
If you buy a store-bought cake, we recommend removing the icing on the top, or buying the cake without the icing.
Your cake pop is as good as the icing. Seriously, icing can make or break them, so we highly recommend making icing instead of store-bought. Our favorite is the homemade buttercream frosting and our cake pops. You can always use store bought if needed, and if there’s a frosting you really like, you’ll love it!
You can really top the cake pop with any flavor you like. We always recommend finding the highest quality coating possible, and you can really make it super easy and buy easy-to-use candy melts.
Cake Pop Ingredients:
When it comes to decorating pop cakes, there really aren’t any rules. You can make them as simple or as fancy as you like. We love using sprinkles and a chocolate drizzle. Just be sure to sprinkle the sprinkles while the chocolate is still moist. If you’re adding extra chocolate to the drizzle, make sure your cake pops are completely cool first.
The cake freezes so well! The problem with freezing finished cakes is that the chocolate coating tends to crack when frozen. If you are freezing, we recommend that you freeze the pop cakes before icing them. Store them in an airtight, freezer-safe container for up to 1 month. When you’re ready to use them and coat them with chocolate, let them defrost completely in the refrigerator first.
