DIY: Sweet Series Part 5 of 5

These adorable cake pops are the perfect size for, well, popping in your mouth! You can easily whip up these simple treats using virtually any cake recipe and your favourite frosting. Find out how Roxy makes them after the jump.

Tools & Ingredients

  • 10 cups of crumbled cake
  • 1 ½ cups of your favourite frosting
  • 4 cups chocolate wafers
  • Vegetable oil
  • Lollipop sticks
    Parchment paper
  • Decorating squeeze bottle

Yields: about 36 cake pops

Cake Pops

1. Crumble a 10” cake into a large bowl. Add 1 ½ cups of frosting to the crumbled cake and gently mix using a wooden spoon.

2. Using your hands, gently roll out 2” round balls and lay on a tray. Be sure not to over mix, to keep the interior cake crumb intact.

3. Freeze for about five minutes.

4. Melt ½ cup of chocolate wafers according to package directions. Starting with one lollipop stick, coat the tip and insert into a cake ball. Repeat with remaining sticks. Refrigerate pops for 5 to 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

5. Melt remaining chocolate wafers and thin with up to 1 tbsp of vegetable oil (1 tbsp per 12oz package of chocolate).

6. Pour the chocolate mixture into a cup or a tall, narrow container to facilitate dipping.

7. Remove cake pops from refrigerator. Dip each cake pop into the melted chocolate mixture and allow excess to drip. When chocolate begins to set (about one minute), insert the base of the stick into a stable piece of Styrofoam.

8. Decorate pops by drizzling with leftover chocolate mixture using a fork or a decorating squeeze bottle.

    What a terrible idea to add oil to my candy melts. It made the chocolate too thin!! If you use merckens chocolate instead of wilton, you shouldn’t have to add any oil. I keep adding more chocolate to thicken up my chocolate but what a waste! Wish I had never read this tutorial.

    I made them… and they are to die for. I am definitally using them at my wedding.

    As a note the consistancy of the white chocolate is key (use the oil) it should be thin enogh to lightly coat the ball and drip off.

    Have fun… I did!!

    Hi Lena,

    You can usually find lollipop sticks at Bulk Barn, Walmart or Michael’s (as well as cake decorating stores). Have fun with your project!
