Cake Pops

posted in: Baking & Pastry, Recipes | 1

Remember when we made those little heart-shaped cakes on Valentine’s Day? Well, we had some leftover red velvet cake, icing, and white pink chocolate. Obviously, we thought of making cake-pops. It’s beyond easy and a great way to recycle those sweet leftovers.


What You’ll Need:

  • leftover cake
  • leftover frosting
  • white, milk, or dark chocolate
  • food coloring (optional)
  • tooth picks or skewers (optional)
  • sprinkles or other decorations (optional)
  • wax paper
  • baking sheet
  • small rubber spatula

Step 1: 

Line the baking sheet with wax paper. Use your hands (might want to wear gloves) to crumble the cooked cake.

Start adding a few spoonfuls of icing at a time and squishing it all together until you have your desired consistency. We got a little over-zealous and added way too much icing at once. They still tasted great, but were a little wetter than we had desired.

Step 2:

When you’ve achieved your desired consistency and the cake mix feels smooth, roll them into little balls- about 1 1/2-2 inches in diameter. Place them on the tray.

Step 3:

Melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave. Use 30 second intervals, stirring with a spatula between each interval, until smooth and silky. Then just use the spatula to cover the cake pops in melted chocolate. Decorate with sprinkles, pretty tooth picks, or what-have-you. Place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
