How to Make Cake Pops

11th December 2012 Recipes 3

Cake pops are great treats, kids and adults both love them and they are extremely fun and easy to make! They could be used for all sorts of occasions, birthday parties, weddings, pretty much anything!

Cake pops were originally made by Bakerella, they can now be found in Starbucks and many bakeries.

Here is my step by step guide on how to make cake pops! 🙂

What you will need:

  • Cake Frosting
  • Melted chocolate
  • Toothpick skewers
  • Styrofoam or a baking tray with grease proof paper or something to hold toothpicks up
  • Cake Pop Molds (optional)


  1. Place cake in food processor to make fine crumbs. This can also be done by hand but I prefer to use a food processor to create a more even texture.

  2. Add enough frosting to make the mixture smooth, pliable and able to hold its shape.

  3. Make round balls or use a cake pop mold to shape. Place in fridge till firm.

  4. Melt chocolate in microwave or use the double boiler method. Dip the cake pops into the molten chocolate.
