How to Make Cake Pops

Turn a box of cake mix into fun and tasty cake pops with this step-by-step guide.  They are so easy to customize, making them the perfect treat for any celebration or a sweet everyday surprise.

What You'll Need

✓ Box of cake mix  ✓ Ingredients for cake  ✓ Frosting ✓ Candy melts ✓ Candy melt thinner ✓ Sprinkles / decorations ✓ Cake pop sticks 

Bake your chosen cake mix as per box instructions.


Once cooled, crumble the cake into small pieces. The smaller the crumbs, the smoother your cake pops will be.


Blend in your preferred frosting to bind the cake crumbs. It’s all about achieving the right consistency for molding.


Use a scoop to measure and shape your cake mixture into balls.


Pop the cake balls in the freezer for 15 minutes. This step ensures they hold shape while being dipped.


Dip each cake pop into quality melted candy, ensuring a smooth coating. Let them sit for a few before moving to decoration.


Get creative in decorating each cake pop. Sprinkles, drizzles, or custom candy shapes—the possibilities are endless!
