This is my trial run on cake pops. For this first effort, I used a cake mix. I was surprised at how well they turned out.

These are more time consuming than difficult. The most difficulty was getting the icing on the pops without them falling off the stick.

I packaged them real pretty and asked four friends to be my testers on the cake pops and brownie pops.

The picture is actually cake pops and brownie pops. I made both.

How to Make Lemon Cake Pops

Step-by-Step

  1. Bake cake as directed on box. Cool completely.
  2. Crumble cake into large bowl.
  3. Mix cake crumbs thoroughly with 2/3 or up to 1 can of the frosting. Use hands or mixer.
  4. Roll mixture into little balls and place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. I used a mini ice cream scooper to keep the balls uniform.
  5. Place cake balls in refrigerator and chill for several hours or 15 - 30 minutes in the freezer.
  6. After the cake balls are chilled, melt some of the bark according to directions; dip stick in the icing and place in the cake ball.
  7. Continue until all cake balls have sticks. Refrigerate again until sticks set (10-15 minutes)
  8. Melt rest of the bark, rolls cake balls in icing, carefully tap off extra icing
  9. If decorating with sprinkles, pearls or colored sugar, do so immediately after dipping in icing. The icing sets quickly.
  10. Push sticks into styrofoam block, space pops so they won't touch.
  11. Let cake pops set completely
