This is my first post after a whole year of blogging sabbatical and here’s an easy tutorial to start with. I made these cutesies the same day exactly 2 years ago for my friend’s kids’ birthday party and they are so easy to make if you already have a few ingredients at hand. These cake pops make excellent treats at birthday parties for both young and old 🙂
Left over cake (any flavor) – crumbled
Any frosting – 1 or 2 Tbsp
Melted chocolate – Milk, White or Dark (Refer Notes)
Rainbow sprinkles/ Chocolate Sprinkles
1. Crumble the cake finely without any lumps.
2. Add the frosting a little at a time and keep mixing until the cake clumps together. Don’t add too much frosting else the cake will get soggy.
3. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a small ball. Repeat the process until you’ve made enough. You can place the cake balls in the refrigerator for a few minutes until it has hardened a little.
4. Dip one end of the lollipop stick into the white chocolate and insert into a cake ball so that the chocolate here acts like a glue and holds the cake to the stick.
5. Immerse the cake pop fully into the melted chocolate and twirl it around until it is fully coated. (Refer Notes). Lift the cake pop and leave it hanging upside down over the chocolate so that the excess melted chocolate will drip back into the bowl.
6. Coat the pops generously with the rainbow sprinkles. You can get creative here and use any decoration you want.
To melt the chocolate, break the chocolate bar into bite size pieces or use chocolate chips if you have and pop them into the microwave for 30 secs and stir to melt. Put it back into the microwave for another 30secs if the chocolate hasn’t melted completely. Originally cake pops are made with Wilton candy melts (available in different colours) but using melted chocolate is just an easy inexpensive alternative.
I have used a wine glass here for the melted chocolate so that the deep cup helps me coat the cake pops fully with the chocolate.
