One of my bridesmaids, Hannah/Kyusun, taught (i.e., forced) me how to make cake pops for my own bridal shower favors. (I know!! >:I) keke. jk. I wanted to learn and I also wanted to share the process since cake-pops have been a trend.
Step 1: Bake a cake (flavor of choice). *Tip: make the batter less sweet because you’ll mix in frosting later in the process.
Step 2: Let it cool.
Step 3: Crumble it apart with a fork or large spoon.
Step 4: Mix in frosting (flavor of choice) until the batter is sticky in consistency (like play-doh).
Step 5: Take a generous pinch of the batter and roll it into a ball (~1″)
Step 6: Insert popsicle sticks.
Step 7: Cool it in the freezer for 1hr+
Step 8: Melt chocolate (flavor of choice) in a bowl.
Step 9: Prepare decorations (e.g., sprinkles)
Step 10: Take a cake-pop and dip it into the melted chocolate. *Note: Chocolate can get messy. Don’t hold the cake-pops upside down. Make sure to remove the excess chocolate before decorating.
Step 11: Decorate.
Step 12: ENJOY!!
