Have you seen the latest craze in the cake world yet? They are called Cake Pops and they are popping up everywhere (no pun intended!). You can make just about any theme or character with them and they are adorable. I have to admit I was intimidated when it came to making them but I was pleasantly surprised that it was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be.
To start off you are going to bake a 9 x 13 cake mix. I used a yellow box cake mix. After it cools break up half of the cake in a large mixing bowl. Crumble it with your hands until no large pieces remain. Then, add 1/2 cup of prepared frosting (I used the Betty Crocker in a can whipped frosting) to the crumbled cake. Mix well until the frosting is all mixed in and the cake is moist.
Next you will form balls with the mix. To make sure they are uniform measure out each amount. I used 2 tablespoons of cake mix to make these medium sized balls. Once you’ve made the balls chill them until they are firm for decorating. It was ten degrees outside when I made these so I just put them outside for a bit and they were nice and firm.
So what do you think? Have I convinced you that these are not as hard as they look? Would you like to see more ideas? You can also make brownie pops and cookies pops! Mmmm! If you want to see more then leave me some comments and I’ll continue to share these fun how to ideas with you!
*I received some of these products from Wilton in exchange for participating in their Pops in a Post contest! I’m hoping to win 🙂 I also purchased some of the products seen here with my own money. My Valentine’s Day and Apple designs are my own ideas. The opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
