How to Make Your Spoonful of Sugar Birthday Party Cake Pops
The very first thing you are going to need to do is mix your cake according to your package instructions.
Bake the cake. Again following the written instructions on the back of the box. Before we move on to our next step it is important to let your cake cool completely. Once cooled, in a large bowl, crumble the cake.
After crumbling your cake you can now add in the frosting. I use a traditional creamy buttercream frosting. I haven’t tried making it with the whipped frosting, so I can’t tell you how it affects the texture. Mix the frosting and cake crumbles together thoroughly.
Next, lay a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet. Roll small cake balls and place on your sheet. These cake pops are going to have to be a smaller pop in order to fit into your spoon. Place the sheet in the freezer for about 20 minutes until they are set.
In a small bowl, melt the candy melts according to the package directions. This part is especially important. Don’t overheat. As a result, you may actually cook the chocolate rather than melting it. Dip one of your cake pops into the white candy coating.
You want it to be evenly coated, but not dripping.
Cake Ball Rolling Tip: If your cake mix is hard to roll into balls place the bowl in the freezer for a few minutes! This will make it a whole lot easier to coat with frosting.
Add the sugar sprinkles and place back on the cookie sheet. Complete this step until you have finished covering all your cake pops in sprinkles. If your kids are helping make them with you, this would be the perfect time to let them dive in. Who doesn’t love sprinkles?
In your plastic spoon, place a drop of the white candy coating and before it hardens, place your cake pop. Finally, put the spoons on your baking sheet and freeze for a few minutes until it can set. (It won’t take long!)
Talk about the perfect party treat — these cake pops are portable, precious and always-delicious. What do they always say?… “Oh, it’s a jolly holiday with Mary!”
Do I have you singing now? You should be. 😉 Enjoy.
