Apparently Cake Pops are all the rage these days. My friend Chelsea and I went to Cupcake Royale in the Madrona Neighborhood of Seattle last weekend and I enjoyed a tasty Cake Pop. They didn’t seem too hard: bake a cake, smash it up, cover it in chocolate or something.
There are many ways to make cake pops and you can get a Cake Pop maker at places like Target and Bed Bath and Beyond. I came across this recipe from a fellow blogger and figured it would be worth a shot because who doesn’t love Funfetti??
Well, they turned out pretty ugly, but also very delicious. It turns out the stick is a crucial part in making cake pops and I highly recommend purchasing some sticks prior to attempting these now Cake Balls.
- Cake Mix (I used Funfetti, but you can use any kind)
- All ingredients needed for the cake mix (ya know..eggs, water, oil)
- 1/2 Can Frosting (I highly recommend the Rainbow Chip frosting, its the best)
- A bag of White Chocolate Chips
- STICKS – I think you can get these at MIchaels, Joanns, etc.
- Make cake as instructed to on the back of the cake box.
- Let cake cool a little, then cut it up and place into a bowl.
- Using your fork, make the cake into small pieces like bread crumbs.
- Add the frosting and mix until it has a dough like consistency.
- Form into balls and put onto a plate.
- In a microwave safe bowl, place the white chocolate chips and put in the microwave for about 45 seconds.
- It is best to dip the stick into the chocolate, then into the pop and then dip it into the chocolate. By dipping the stick first, it helps the cake pop to stay securely on the stick. (I did not do this and had a MESSY experience).
- Pour sprinkles over the pops and put in the fridge to cool. Then Enjoy!
Sidenote: you could skip the sticks, dip the balls into the melted chocolate and have balls. This is what I did. Delish.
