I know I know, a cake pop recipe isn't the most unique idea for a tip set, but even though I'd seen cake pop sets, I hadn't really read them and really wanted to learn how to make these half cake, half lollipop treats. So if you don't know how to make cake pops and want to know, keep reading!
What you'll need:
Cake mix and other needed ingredients needed to make cake mix (Or all the ingredients you'd need for your favorite cake)
Frosting (NOT whipped cream frosting) at room temperature.
1 cup of candy melts
food coloring for frosting, candy pearls, sprinkles, or anything else you can think of to decorate the cake pops with :)
Step 1. Make the cake.
Just make a regular cake with the cake mix you chose or from the recipe you decided to use from scratch.
Step 2: Demolish the cake.
Quite literally. Take a spoon, fork or other eating utensil and crush it up. After you're done it should look very sad, like a whole bunch of cake crumbs.
Step 3: Mix the cake with the frosting
Place 4 cups of the cake crumbs in a bowl along with 1/4 cup of the frosting and mix together until it becomes a dense, moist dough
Step 4. Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch in radius. (This amount should make about 16) and place them on parchment paper.
Step 5: Put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Make sure they are firm but NOT frozen!!!
Step 6: Make the outer frosting (Probably while the cake balls are in the freezer) But the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and put them in the microwave for 30 seconds then stir. Repeat until there are no lumps and the mixture is smooth.
Step 7: Decorate the Cake pops!!!
Dip the sticks in the frosting you just make out of the candy melts about half an inch and then put that side into the cake ball. Make sure the ball is sturdy on the stick before dipping it into the frosting. After coating the pop you can dip it into a layer of sugar crystals or candied pearls, whatever you like, and VOILA! Cake Pops ready to serve. :)
I hope you liked this set and sorry for so much inactivity, I plan on being a lot more active.
