Has anyone made them before? Are they fairly easy? I’ve been wanting to try making them for a while and told my aunt I’d make them for my cousin’s graduation party in a few weeks. I figured I’d do a test run this weekend since it’s my bday. Ha, nothing like making your own bday cake pops!
I’m thinking choc cake with choc icing and then dipping them in white chocolate.
Any tips? This could be a disaster!

From what I understand, they do take some practice. And they can get dry pretty quickly, so you can’t make them way ahead. But they are cute, and they’re always a hit.

I’ve made them several times. They are VERY time consuming, but so delicious! Here’s my tips.
– I turn mine into a 2 day process 😛
– Day One: Make your cake, let it cool, mix it with the frosting, put mixture in freezer for about 30 minutes.
– After mixture is cold, roll into balls. I use a small melon baller for consistent sizes.
– melt some of your chocolate and take lollypop sticks. Dip tip into chocolate and put stick into cake pop.
– Put cake pops in fridge overnight.
Those steps right there are a few hours of work!!
– Day Two: take only a few balls out at a time. Melt your chocolate and dip the ball in carefully. You will have some casualties, but those are the taste testers 🙂
– Swirl cake pop around to get rid of some of the excess chocolate.
– I usually have a piece of styrofoam or a cardboard box handy. I poke holes and use it as a holder while the cake pops dry.
– Continue with remaining pops, but only taking a few out at a time. The colder they are, the less they fall off the sticks.
Those are my tips. Good luck!

I have a friend recently make a batch and they weren’t too hard for her. to make ones that are even easier than that she added a few that were just marshmallows on sticks with frosting and sprinkles.
