What is a cake pop?

A cake pop is a combination of cake and icing formed into a ball. Each ball has cake pop sticks in them similar to a lollipop. Then it is dipped in melted chocolate or candy coating.

Cake pops are very popular with kids and so much fun to eat.

Cake pop ingredients:

Homemade Cake Pops typically include cake and frosting. The coating consists of candy melts, white chocolate or milk chocolate. Additional ingredients can include sprinkles and other embellishments for the cake pops.

How to make cake pops:

  • Step 1. Make the box cake mix. Allow to cool completely.
  • Step 2. Crumble the Cake.
  • Step 3. Combine the cake with frosting in a large bowl. It should be well combined and a smooth consistency.
  • Step 4. Form the mixture into balls. You can use a cookie scoop to quickly do this and make sure they are all uniform.
  • Step 5. Insert the lollipop stick.
  • Step 6. Dip the cake balls into candy coating or chocolate. Gently tap to remove any excess coating.
  • Step 7. Place the cake pops in a Styrofoam block to allow them to set at room temperature. If you have a cake pop holder, this can also be used.

These easy step by step instructions result in delicious and gorgeous cake pops! Now you know how to make cake pops recipe.

Can you freeze cake pop?

Yes, cake pops can be frozen. We recommend freezing them before they have been decorated.

Place the cake balls that are formed but undecorated on a baking sheet. Flash freeze for an hour. Then transfer to a freezer container or bag.

They can be frozen up to 6 weeks. Allow to thaw and then dip in coating and decorate as normal.

You can also freeze cake pops decorated but the appearance might be altered. If freezing decorated cake pops, wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Then place inside a freezer container. See Can you Freeze Cake Pops for more tips and tricks.

What is the difference between cake balls and cake pops?

Cake Pops are Cake Balls that have a lollipop stick inserted into them. Any cake ball recipe can be converted into cake pops simply by inserting a stick into them.
