Cake pops

Cake pops are not just for kids party. It can be enjoyed by anyone with sweet tooth. They are so easy to make too.

  1. Vanilla cake, made to rough crumbs by hand or fork - 2 cups
  2. Any cream frosting/chocolate ganache - 2 tsp
  3. Melted chocolate - 1 cup
  4. Sprinkles - 2 tsp (optional)
  5. Pop sticks - 12
  6. Chopped nuts/ biscuit - 2 tbs(optional)

  • I have used vanilla cake crumbs, you can use any cake. I used the dome part of the cake which I cut off to level the cake
  • I haven't used nuts or biscuits
  • I have tried making cake pops with white / brown melted chocolate , both works fine.
  • I have tried with  chocolate ganache as well as cream frosting for mixing with cake

  1. Mix cake crumbs roughly with frosting or ganache using fork.  Don't add too much pressure when mixing
  2. Add nuts and mix with fork
  3. Make small balls of the mixture and chill it in the fridge for 3-4 hours
  4. Keep the warm melted chocolate ( not hot) in a glass or any deep bowl
  5. Dip the tip of pop stick in melted chocolate and insert it to the chilled cake ball. ( when inserting, you don't need the pop stick to reach the other end of the cake ball)
  6. Dip the cake pop in the melted chocolate and swirl once.
  7. Keep the cake pop pierced on to a thick thermocol or in a glass( cake ball side of the pop stick will be on top and the other end pierced or in the glass like the picture)
  8. Use sprinkles on the cake pops when the chocolate coating is still not dried. 
  9. Repeat the same with all balls and chill the cake pops in the fridge for an hour or more. 

Cake pops are ready to be served.
