Cake Pop Flower Bouquet

Ashley Burnam


I made this for my mom on her birthday this year. It came to me because I wanted to make cake pops, but I also wnated to get her something from Edible Arrangements but they're so darn expensive! It's great for something like Mother's Day too :)

How to Make Cake Pop Flower Bouquet


  1. Prepare the cake mix as directed and bake before doing anything else. Allow the cake to cool completely.
  2. Grab chunks of the cake by the handful and crumble it into a large mixing bowl. (This part is fun with kids too)
  3. Mix in 3/4 of the frosting and test to see if you can roll a ball in your hand, if not mix in the rest.
  4. Let the mixture cool, covered in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Then take it out and roll into balls just smaller than a golf ball. Put them on a cookie sheet as they are done and put in the fridge to cool while you melt the chocolate.
  5. Melt the white and milk chocolate separately, add whatever food coloring you want to the white chips. I did blue dye with a couple drops of green.
  6. Poke a hole in each cake ball with a skewer. Dip each skewer and toothpick you'll be using into the chocolate, with the blunt side- the pointy side is for stucking into the styrofoam or pineapple. Whatever color you'll be dipping th cake ball into, dip the stick in the same color.
  7. After you dip the skewer in the chocolate, stick it in the hole you just created and put them in an egg carton or mini-muffin trat for the chocolate to set. Then put them in the freezer- the faster you complete this step the better. (This keeps the balls on the sticks)
  8. After about 20-30 minutes in the freezer they're ready to be dipped! Dip each ball in whatever color you want and roll it around on the stick so the chocolate doesn't drip- I did this in front of the freezer so it would cool really fast. Kind of a pain but it works. If you're adding sprinkles, do it right after you dip the balls.
  9. After you dip the cake balls, put them back in the freezer until you're ready to put it all together. During this time, cut the skin off the pineapple and cut flowers out of it with a cookie cutter and set them on paper towels to remove excess juice.
  10. Assembly Time! Take the flowes and add the chocolate balls to the middle to make the center of the flower. Add whatever decorations you like. Super fun!
