It was my one of my best friends 21st birthday the other day so I decided to make her some birthday cake pops. Cake pops have been a new trend in baking within the last few months, so I thought I’s try them out! (Please ignore the Halloween colors on the popsicle sticks…they were the only ones I could find.)

INGREDIENTS:

  • Cake box mix (usually calls for 3 eggs as well, but depends on the box)
  • Frosting of your choice
  • 30 popsicle sticks
  • Sprinkles

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cook the cake according to the box instructions
  2. After the cake is done baking and cooled, take the cake out of the pan and put into a bowl. Using a fork, mash the cake until it is into crumbs.
  3. Mix 1 cup of frosting to the cake crumbs. This should make the cake crumbs stick together better.
  4. Using a tablespoon, roll crumbs into balls and place on a pan with non-stick foil or wax paper on top.
  5. Heat a little frosting and put on the ends of the popsicle sticks. Place them into the balls. This helps the sticks stay in the pops better.
  6. Place the pan with the pops in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  7. After at least 30 minutes, heat more frosting and roll each cake pop into the frosting until fully covered or desired. After each pop, quickly add the sprinkles.
  8. Now they should be done and ready to serve!! Place leftovers in fridge.

Enjoy these wonderful treats! The great thing about cake pops is about 4-5 is equivalent to 1 cupcake. So don’t feel bad for eating multiple! For a full video on creating these cake pops watch here.

With Sugar,
