    Am I missing something? Is there a recipe somewhere you’d recommend to make cake pops? My son is wanting to take cake pops to school for his birthday in March, and I can’t find a place around us that makes them. Help?

  • Lisa Gerardo

    if you want to make yourself stores like bed bath and beyond or kohls sell the cake pop or aka baby cake machines, or even on amazon. or for fun check your local michaels for a cake class , they teach a great class, i just started and its so fun. recipes can be found on line. i did notice a link in the story to a seller on etsy that will ship an order to you….. good luck

    The original way to make cake pops and how it was originally started is by baking a cake and then literally mashing it and adding frosting to it to make it pliable. The easiest way to do this is to take pieces of a cake you baked (box is fine and super easy) put it in a stand mixer, then add frosting and mix until a “doughy” consistency. Then you can make balls out of the dough, pop a candy stick in it and freeze for a few hours. Take candy chocolate melts, melt them and then dip the pops into the melt, tap and swirl then place in a piece styrofoam, and decorate with sprinkles (asap before it cools) and let cool. Super easy and fun!

    I bought the cake ball pan as seen on tv, for 20.00 at walgreens, the only problem i had was trying to get them to stand up in styrofoam, they kept fallen all the way through, any ideas how to get them to stand?

  • Brandy Heulitt

    Kim I usually take the candy stick and dip the tip in candy melts and place them half way through the cake ball and lay them on their side and let it dry, or you can pop them in the refrigerater to help cool the candy melt faster. Then dip them in icing or melted candy melts and they stick won’t come through the pop when you stand it to dry. Hope that helps a bit!
