Cake pops

Cake pops

Cake pops are one of the latest trends in dessert culture, which are basically little smushed balls of cake and cream cheese, dipped in chocolate or candy melts. Here I walk you through the steps to make your own cake pops at home with one difference: whilst most of recipes call for a boxed cake mix, I would like to invite you to prepare this recipe with cake leftovers. For instance, this cake pops in the pics were prepared with the leftovers of this chocolate birthday cake, as I had to slice the domed section of the cakes to make a perfect layer cake. I kept the “domes” in the freezer, and used them for this recipe (that is why the dough is a bit brown)

Form mixture into cake pops

Dip sticks into melted chocolate and insert into cake balls

Dip the pops completely in melted chocolate, add some sprinkles, and ready!

    You’re recipes are great!
    I was wondering- how long can the cake pops (with the chocolate coating) stay outside of the fridge?
