Basics of Making Cake Pops

Bake a Cake

For a start, you need to make and bake a cake. You can use a cake mix or you can start from scratch – the decision depends on your dessert-making skills and preferences. Choosing the right flavor is very important. Think about the cake, the frosting and the coating – all of them have to work together.

Add the Frosting

After baking the cake, let it cool down and crumble it into pieces. Add enough frosting of your preferred flavor. Use your hands to mix them together. You should get a sticky mixture that is almost like dough. This mixture will be easy to manipulate with your hands for the creation of specific shapes.

Use Your Hands to Form the Cake Balls

Scoop a small amount of the cake and frosting mix. Use the palm of your hands to form balls. Your mixture should be moist and sticky enough to stay together. The cake balls are ready. Place them in a tray and let them cool down in your fridge before adding the lollipop sticks and the decorations.

Turn the Cake Balls into Cake Pops

Melt some chocolate. White, milk or dark – it all depends on the coating and the flavors you plan to use. Dip the end of each lollipop stick in the melted chocolate. Insert into the cake ball. As the chocolate solidifies, the lollipop stick will stay in place.

Decorate the Cake Pops

The basic process of making cake pops is completed. All recipes start with the same procedure. The final result will become unique through the usage of specific decorations. Melted chocolate, icing and candy melts can all be used to coat the these desserts and to give them color. Additional decorative pieces and edible ink pens will provide the finishing touches of your unique desserts.
