  • Make the cake according to the directions on the package, stirring in food coloring until the desired shade is reached before baking.
  • After the cake has baked and cooled, crumble it into fine crumbs in a large bowl.
  • Add the vanilla cake frosting a tablespoon at a time until the cake is just moist enough to be rolled into about 40 1-inch smooth balls.
  • Place the cake balls on a sheet pan in the refrigerator for at least an hour or two. They can be left in the refrigerator longer if needed.
  • Once the cake balls are firm, place the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and cook on 50% power for a minute. Stir until smooth. If they are not melted enough, heat on 15 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  • Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the melted white chocolate and then insert it into the cake ball about half way. Dip the cake ball into the white chocolate and turn to coat.
  • Decorate and enjoy! See notes for decorating suggestions.

Tips and Techniques for Making Cake Pops

  • You can use a regular or gluten free boxed cake or a homemade cake recipe with very similar results.
  • Use a small silicone brushif necessary, to help spread the white chocolate around so that the cake is fully covered.
  • Place the cake pops into coffee mugs or a block of Styrofoam to keep them upright and not touching each other while the white chocolate is hardening back up.
  • Cover cake pops to store them. They can be left at room temperature for up to a week or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze your cake pops for up to 3 months.

Cake Pop Decorating Ideas

  • Add sprinklescolored sugar, or edible glitter before the white chocolate sets.
  • Use different colored cake icing or Candymelts to add swirls or designs.
  • Use green gel food coloring and a toothpick to create designs as shown in the photos. Just be aware that the food coloring may not fully set so be extra careful if you have to transport the cake pops.
