Cake Pop Tutorial [taste of tuesday]

The first time I made cake pops was a disaster. That was about a year ago & I haven't attempted it since. When I saw this pin on Pinterest, I clicked on the link & I decided to give it another try since I LOVEEEE cake pops that other people make. I'm so glad I made them... I told myself I wasn't going to eat any because of my YF diet, but I broke down & tried one. They are delicious!! Darren & his friends loved them as well!

One: Mix your boxed cake mix
Two: Prepare your cake
Three: Bake your cake according to directions on box
Four: Add your container of frosting & mix with the cake to form small clumps

Five: Place your candy melts into small plastic containers
Six: Melt your candy melts in the microwave (I had a little trouble the first time I tried, I recommend microwaving in 20 second intervals & stirring in between until melted)
Seven: Form small balls out of your cake/frosting mix (I didn't have a cookie scoop, but if you have one I would recommend using it to form your balls so that they are perfectly round. Mine were a little lot bit lumpy.)
Eight: Dip your cake pop sticks in the melted chocolate & stick into balls. Let sit for a little while, then dip the entire ball into the melted chocolate. Pop in the freezer for about 15 minutes & you're good to go!

Can't wait to see what everyone else made this week!! :)
Linking up with Ashley & Jessica!


  1. There is no way I would have been able to make those and not eat one! And what in the world are you talking about lumpy?! That cake ball above looks PERFECT! Like one I would buy at the store!! So glad you linked up with us!

  2. I LOVE this tutorial!! I tried cake balls about a year ago and it was a disaster... like I broke a wooden spoon in the mixture! haha And they weren't round like yours! Definitely going to re-try with your directions! :)

    Thanks for linking up, love!

  3. ahh these look great! I always just splurge and buy them at starbucks but i have never thought about making them!!

  4. Yummy!! Yeah, I wouldn't have been able to not eat one either!!

  5. I still have yet to make some cake pops although I do see me making them in the very near future! You did a great job!

  6. Those look great. Now I have to try to make them sometime.

  7. So that's how you make them? I have been seeing these everywhere but yet to make them, thanks for making it look easier than I thought. They don't look lumpy at all!

  8. Those look awesome! We tried them, but weren't fast enough from the freezer (method we tried and never did again) to keep them from falling off the stick. Lol!

  9. Ok, I've always put cake pops in the "too hard" and "professional" category...but you make this look easy!
