How to Make Cake Pops Easy?

Want to learn how to make the perfect Cake Pops? These homemade cake pop are so easy to make, today I show you two methods.

The first kind uses the leftover cake lying around, rolled into a ball. The second is directly with the cake pop mold. You can choose according to your needs!


First, use the leftover cake.

Nothing beats homemade cake. If you prefer you can use chocolate cake, red velvet cake, or strawberry cake instead.

1. Crumble cake into a large bowl.2. Mixture with buttercream or cream cheese.3. No fixed amount can be formed into a cake ball. Each cake pop is about 16g.

4. Place the rolled balls on a lined plate. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or freeze for 30 minutes.

5.Melt candy or chocolate wafers according to the package instructions. Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and insert about halfway into a cake ball.6. Dip the cake ball into the chocolate. Remove and gently tap on the side of the cup to let excess coating drip off.7. Decorate with sprinkles or fondant.

Cake Pop Instructions

1.   Why do my Cake Pops fall of the stick?

  • Usually, this problem has to do with the consistency of the dough you are using. Oily, too soft, or too dry dough won’t hold well and falls off the stick.
  • Candy melts can also be the culprit. When candy melts are too thick, they can push the cake pop off the stick. If you are using quality chocolate, however, this is a less common reason for cake pops falling off the stick. 
  • Dipping your stick in candy melts before inserting them into your cake pop is also very helpful. Allow the dipped stick to fully dry in the cake pop before dipping the whole cake pop into the candy melts. 


2.   Why do my cake pops crack?

  • Cold cake pop dough dipped in melted chocolate that is hot can cause cracking. The closer these two temperatures are the less cracking you will get. 


3.   Why is cake pop poop and what caused it?

  • Cake pop poop is oil that seeps from cake pops.
  • Oily dough is the cause.
  • Prevent cake pop poop by using butter or sour cream in place of oil in your cake pop dough and use as little frosting as possible.


4.   How do I store my cake pops?

  • Wrap cake pop dough in parchment paper, wrapped in a zip log bag or an air tight container in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or over night before molding.


5.   Can you freeze cake pops?

  • You can freeze cake pops in the same way  you  store them in the refrigerator by wrapping in parchment paper and then an air tight container. However, if cake pops are for professional use we do not recommend freezing cake pops. 


Second, bake in a cake pop mold.
