How to make cake pops
Here are the step by step instructions with pictures.
Feel free to leave a comment with any questions.
Ready, set, go!
Cake pop ingredients
Cake Pop Supplies:
Devils Food cake mix {and ingredients listed on box}
1/2 package of chocolate frosting
White Chocolate Candy Melts {2 bags from Michael’s}
Candy sticks {from Michael’s}
Styrofoam
Gel Food Coloring {NOT liquid}
Foil
Vegetable Oil Spray
Shortening {large spoon full}
Step One:
Line your large cake pan with foil. 
Foil in pan
Now grease the foil with vegetable oil spray. 
Spray
Step Two:
Follow the recipe on your cake mix and bake your cake as directed. 
Cake batter
 Allow the cake to cool.
Cooked cake
 Step Three:
Put your baked cake in a large mixing bowl.
Cake for cake pops
 Use your hands to crumble the entire cake. 
Crumble up cake for cake pops
Add about 1/2 of the package of chocolate frosting to the crumbled cake.
The chocolate frosting is what acts as a glue to hold the cake balls together.
Cake and frosting for cake pops
Now its time to get dirty.
Use your hands to mix the frosting evenly throughout the crumbled cake mix until the cake mix is well moistened. 
Cake pop batter
Your cake mix should be moist enough to shape into a large mound and keep its shape.

  And if your hands don’t look like this, then you’re doing it wrong {lol}.
Messy cake pop hands
Step Four:
Roll your cake mix into 1 inch balls using the palms of your hands.
Cake pop ball
You should be able to get 35-40 cake balls from a single batch of cake mix.

Step Five:
Now we prepare the chocolate shell.  Pour one entire package of white chocolate candy melts into a microwave safe bowl.  Follow the melting instructions on the package.  *Be sure not to burn the candy melts or they will taste super yucky*
Candy melts
Pull out your melted white chocolate and stir thoroughly with a spoon until COMPLETELY smooth.  Once smooth, add a large spoon full of shortening {Crisco} to the white chocolate to thin out the consistency a bit. Stir thoroughly again.

Step Six:
Take a cake pop and dip into the white chocolate about 1 inch. 
Dip in stick
 And then place it into the center of your cake ball.
This will act as a glue keeping your cake pop and stick attached.
Cake pop stick
Then place your cake pop in the Styrofoam to harden.
Continue with the remaining cake pops.

Step Seven:
Now you are ready to coat your cake pops in the delicious white chocolate.
This is the most tricky step of the entire recipe.  It took me some practice before I was good at evenly coating the chocolate on the pop.
Dip in stick
The key is to place the pop in the chocolate at a sideways angle with one hand.  Using the other hand, spoon the chocolate mixture all around the pop.  Try to do this as quickly as possible before the chocolate begins to harden and get lumpy. 
Dip cake pop
Once you have evenly coated the pop, gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl to get off any excess chocolate that would drip.
Frosted cake pops
Step Eight:
Now its time to make your pops look extra pretty.  Use the remainder of your white chocolate for the drizzle.  If you run out, make more following the steps above. Add the GEL food coloring of your choice until you receive your desired color.  The liquid food coloring will immediately harden and ruin your chocolate. 
Pink frosting
Fill a Ziploc bag with your colored white chocolate.  Cut a small hole in one corner of the Ziploc back so that you can drizzle the colored chocolate over your pops.
UPDATE: I have just learned how to keep your cake pops from falling off the stick when you try to cover them in chocolate!  After you shape the cake into little balls, put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes so they are super chilled.  Then continue with the recipe.  They will be “more solid” and therefor hold onto the stick better. 
Frosted cake pops
Now let your cake pops dry and then you are done!
Lyndsi and I preferred the way the cake pops taste after they have chilled in the refrigerator for a bit. 
I am so making these at the next baby shower I throw {that’s right Kristyn}!
How pretty are these bad boys?!

    So making these for my daughters V-day partay at school (3 yrs & 4 yrs) The kids will love them. PS: I find that using one of those mini crock pots is the BEST way to keep your melting chocolates at a nice consistency for a longer period of time. Cuz you know that when you have little kiddos running around, you get interrupted. Not so good when you are trying to work with melted chocolate. Thanks for sharing!

    Great tutorial!! I tried using white chocolate chips w/ heavy whipping cream as I would for a poured ganache and it wouldn't stick to the pop. Then i tried using candy melts and it was so think it kept pulling the pop off the stick so I combined the two and the combination turned solid!! I'm going to try your method next!!

    Your cake pops look great. Thanks for the tip about the coloring gel. I read in Bakerella's Pop cake book that using food coloring would make the coating hard, but I didn't know that you could use the gel.

    Did you chill your cake pops before coating them? I made some last night and followed Bakerella's suggestion to chill before dipping and my chocolate was cracking after coating. I think it was because the cake was too cold, so I'm wondering if I can skip the chilling and not have that problem. Thanks!

    Hi! Checking out your tutorial on cake pops as I have ventured into this world myself a couple of days ago. I had trouble with the white candy melts drying…. it got strange, like almost little air bubbles or something as they were drying… have you had this happen to you at all?

    Hmmm, Alle I have never had that happen to me before. The only thing I can think of is that maybe you didn't add enough Crisco to the candy melts?? Also, make sure you stir the candy melts REALLY well before you start to dip the pops.
    hope this helps a bit 🙂

      I was wondering (Since people have been having trouble and in my town I don’t have a Michaels
      -You know how you make candy buckeyes? When you coat the peanut butter balls with the chocolate it would be the same as coating the cake pops with choc. right? Wonder if the same would work here is what I do…… Get a double broiler (make sure you put a little water in the bottom pan) then add a bag of white chocolate chips and a half of a block of Paraffin wax (It is at wal-mart it is used also for jellies) the wax makes it thinner and the double broiler keeps the chocolate at an even temp so it doen’t get lumpy.. If you use the candy melts I am sure you could add the wax to that as well couldn’t you? kind of the same thing
      And the pariffin wax has no taste you would think it would but all it is is a thinning agent for the chocolate so it will coat evenly . I Can’t wait to make them!!! I think I am going to use the white choc chips, wax, And double broiler it just sounds easier and if it coats the buckeyes which is in balls why wouldn’t work for cake =)

All the chocolate is too heavy for the cake to stay on the stick. I also bought hot pink sugar sprinkles instead of doing the swirls they look super cute. Thanks for the idea. Jamie

    Your tutorial was great but I am having problems. My pops keep falling off the sticks when I dip them in chocolate. At first I thought I made them too heavy with too much frosting but it did the same thing the second time around. Can anyone help????

      UPDATE: I have just learned how to keep your cake pops from falling off the stick when you try to cover them in chocolate! After you shape the cake into little balls, put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes so they are super chilled. Then continue with the recipe. They will be “more solid” and therefor hold onto the stick better.

    I make cakes and when I cut the top off to level them I take the extra cake and mix it w/my icing, just enough so it is moist like the pictures. You do want to refridgerate the ball after you dip the stick in melted chiocolate and put them in the balls. this helps them harding some and makes it alot easier to dip them in the melted chocolate w/out falling off the sticks. I have at times let them sit in the fridge overnight and that is when they were the best. I did them couple of times before I figured it out. I do bake cakes like instructed above but rather use the cake I cut off the ones I bake so that don’t go to waste. They have been a big hit by everyone that tries them!

    I had a ball making the cake pops. I made the “Starbucks” birthday cake one. They turned out beautiful & looked just like them, however I did not like the taste of the chocolate on the outside. I only used a tablespoon of the Crisco shortening and I could totally taste the shortening. Is there a substitute for the shortening? Is it just me?

    I’m also wondering if I can use the same chocolate I use on my Christmas pretzels? I purchase the chocolate drops at Henry’s/ Sprouts and it is a delicious chocolate. Comes in both white chocolate and chocolate. I dip half the pretzel in white and half in the dark then sprinkle in Holiday sprinkle…..sorry, a little side tracked here.

    Also, I refrigerated the balls on foil for 15 minutes prior to frosting and they dipped perfectly. Didn’t loose a single pop off the stick.

    I was wondering if you can substitute the shortening with vegetable oil? I hardly ever cook. I can’t really justify wasting $6 on a can of shortening to use once. Would using like a teaspoon or tablespoon of oil instead?

    Hi there! Thanks so much for this post…

    When I first tried making cake pops, I encountered A LOT of the problems that people are mentioning here (like the balls falling off the stick!). I discovered (through trial and error) that you need to make sure you use enough frosting to ensure that the cake balls rolls properly. If they are still a bit crumbly and falling apart as you roll them, then add a bit more frosting to the dough mixture.

    Also, I try not to make the cake balls too large and heavy. About 1.5 inches is perfect – I use the OXO good grip small cookie scoop to ensure a consistent, perfect size and not too heavy. (Still a decent bite or two of cake though!)

    Then, as others have suggested above, I chill the balls to set them (an hour or two in the fridge or 15 minutes in the freezer). Make sure that once you have chilled them you don’t try to dip them straight out of the fridge or freezer. If the balls are still cold through when you dip them in the candy coating, they expand as they heat up and can crack your beautiful coating!

    If you like these tips and could use a few more, I’d love it if you could visit my Cake Pop Recipes Blog! … trust me… I’ve made every mistake in the book so you don’t have to 🙂

    I have got to say I was a little disappointed. The recipe seemed easy enough and I was excited to make my german chocolate cake pops with white chocolate outside. But 1 the chocolate kept dripping and it was extremely frustrating, and the cake kept falling off the stick. Another problem I encountered was that i didn’t have a cake pop holder and they kept falling over. i turned them upside down and that ended in disaster.

    this is definitely not for an amateur
    p.s. yes i did dip the sticks in the coating then froze them before i actully coated them..

      hi stephanie, sorry this recipe was frustrating. I have certainly had my fair share of disaster cake pop sessions. If you froze the cake but were still having problems keep the cake on the stick, I would try adding a bit more frosting to the cake before you shape the balls–then, once they are shaped, you can chill them in the fridge. This might help keep them from crumbling apart. hope this helps 🙂

    Hi there! Such a fab and comprehensive recipe! Thanks for sharing. I must admit I encountered numerous challenges – cake falling down the stick and a major icing disaster. I made the cake balls entirely too big, so I’ll be sure to make them a lot smaller next time. Also, I completely forgot to buy Crisco when I was at the store. . .and yeah, it was downhill from there! I’m definitely going to take another shot at these – they’re super adorable, and really actually simple to make if you follow the instructions. I figure I’ll go with the old saying, practice makes perfect.

    Good luck to all of the first timers taking a shot at these bad boys, they’re actually quite tasty.

    I made these (well some of my friends helped me while I ran around the house doing other things) for my sister’s baby shower…and well…they didn’t taste so great. I don’t know what went wrong but I tasted one (unfortunately not before we put them o ut) and it tasted so bad that I had to spit it out. It was sooo embarrassing. It almost tasted like c hemicals o r something. Do you think it could be that the chocolate burnt (even though I think the girls followed the directions right). OR could it be the crisco?

I would think your friends did not fallow the instructions correctly kuz it is verrrry hard to make sweets taste sooo bad you have to spit them out. You should try making them next time when yhou have more time on your hands. I have done it without crisco, and Some fell apart. The second and third time though, I still didn’t use crisco, and I was more careful with them, and did not go as hard on them. None fell apart that time. Good luck and email if you have any q’s @ [email protected]

    After reading this page, I made these. Only I made it with red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting for one batch, lemon cake with lemon frosting for the other batch, white chocolate for both, and instead of the food coloring, I used sprinkles. They were a huuuuge hit at my family thanksgiving get together! If you’re reading this, and you want to impress your family, show up with these things, seriously.

    P.S. The lemon cake with lemon frosting batch was SO good. I didn’t use the sticks with that batch which shaves off a lot of time making them. So if you’re feeling lazy, just make cake balls!! Here is a picture of the red velvets I did.

    I made cake pops for the first time today for my daughter’s birthday. Some of the balls I made ended up with cracks, so they fell apart. Does that mean I didn’t use enough frosting? Also, any tips on distributing the frosting evenly with the cake? It seems to really stick in one spot, so it’s hard to get it around the other cake crumbs. Thanks!

    Made them for my daughter’s fifth birthday party as paty favors. The tutorial was terrific. Freezing the cake balls worked like a charm. I don’t think I added enough shortening to the candy, however, because I ended up having to “frost” the pops rather than pouring the candy on–so they were a bit lumpy. But it didn’t matter after decorating them–they looked awesome. I also went the CakeMate cookie writing icing to decorate because I’m lazy, it was easier, and it gave me more colors to work with and more decorations to make. I’ll likely make these again when my second daughter turns three in August. Thank you so much!

    Crisco Shortening Solution.

    Substitute Coconut Oil for Crisco.
    Coconut oil is a Solid at 72 degrees.
    Add 2 to 3 tbs of coconut oil to white chocolates to thin.
    When refrigerated will aid in hardening.
    I add 4 tbs of coconut oil to the frosting, stirring thoroughly, then mix with cake crumbs.
    Refrigerating & freezing with the coconut oil helps solidify and hold together while enhansing the flavor.

    Instead of corn oil or the evil Canola Oil – i do All my baking with coconut oil .
    Increased Moistness and Additional flavor is the result.

    I posted my pictures on pinterest, but I just used your recipe to inspire a slightly altered version. I’m currently working as a tour actor/director for a children’s theatre company where I am in a different city/town each week, staying in hotels/motels. Therefore, I have no kitchen or oven, and my supplies are very limited. So essentially, I made your recipe using leftover brownies instead of cake, peanut butter for frosting, melted Hershey’s milk chocolate for the white chocolate, a coffee stirrer for the stick, and an upside down disposable coffee cup for the styrofoam. And it worked great! Thanks for your inspiration while I’m on the road, and can’t bake too much!

    Hi, Just made cake pops for the first time – cakes themselves were fine, but I wanted to cover them in ??icing ??frosting (but not melted chocolate). Tried a recipe which a blogger wrote forr an icing to put on to ice donuts which was 62.5ml (1/4 cup milk), tsp vanilla extract – warmed on stove, then add 500g sifted icing sugar icing sugar and liquid food colouring – very solidy – more milk made it work better – but then so runny when dipping and a long time to dry enough to place upright. also very very sugary (even for someone with a very sweet tooth). Do you have a recipe for icing or frosting I could use which would allow me to dip the pops giving good coverage and not having everything slide off??

    First time trying to make cake pops so I typed in easy cake pop recipe and this came up and boy am I glad it did! I used moist yellow cake and cream cheese frosting instead, but other than that I followed the recipe and they turned out yummy and with a perfect conistency. I’m not a big baker, but I wanted to try these for a fourth of July party, and they were a huge hit! Even someone commented that they don’t like cake pops but that these were the best ones they have ever had. So a big thank you for sharing this recipe!

    Thank you for this tutorial! I am making these for my engagement party this coming Sunday and am so excited! I was told to keep them in the fridge to help them last longer but I am worried I may not have enough space for all of them. Will they go bad if they sit out for a day or two? How should they be covered? Thanks for any help/suggestions you may have.

    These are wonderful, Ashley. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I’m making them today with my grandson for the 4th of July with appropriate decorations. I like to place a surprise in the center, perhaps a cherry, or a small round piece of caramel. The kids love them so much that I make an adult version for the parents. The adult version cake is baked replacing liquid with Kahlua (or your choice of liqueur). Then for the coating, you can purchase candy oil flavorings for liquere’s at cake decorating supply stores. I’m not sure if Michael’s has it, but you can certainly order them online. They make great adult treats too! Of course, the alcohol cooks out leaving only the flavor, and the oils don’t contain alcohol, so if the kids happen to get one — no problem!

    These are too cute! My kids have been asking for pop cakes (they’ve seen them at Star Bucks) and I did buy them there couple of times. But they seem so wet and ugly inside.. So I dicided to make my own and just bought the pop cake mold tray. I do bake different things but never made those. Was looking for a recipe and yours popped out and here I am. This whole time I thought they are made from scrach but as it turns out it’s a cake mix! I guess it makes it easier that way:) I will try it for sure! Thanks!
