Simple Cake Pops!

by Jenna Gleason

These cake pops are for any occasion! This recipe puts a spin on the typically cake pop recipe...This is great for the busy mom (or dad) who needs to make a “fancy” dessert, for someone special. Happy baking!



Store Bought Cake (or Homemade)


Chocolate or Candy Melts

Sprinkles and/or Chopped Nuts

Kabob Sticks or Lollipop Sticks


  1. Crumble up the cake! That’s right, rip the cake apart into crumbs in a bowl.
  2. Pour frosting into the crumbled cake, and mix until the cake becomes moldable.
  3. Form the balls by rolling an ice cream scoop full of the cake in your hands and place them on a sheet.
  4. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  5. Place your sticks in some icing and push that end into each of your cake pops.
  6. Freeze another 20 minutes to set.
  7. Set up a station for dry time using either styrofoam or foil in a container.
  8. Melt the chocolate and start dipping.
  9. Before cooling add sprinkles or nuts.

Tip: If you're running low on time try donut holes instead of cake!
