I loved making the yummiest and cutest cake-pops! We celebrated Robbie’s birthday twice: once in school, and once more with friends. Robbie loves eating cake pops, but he never finishes a cupcake. This gave me the idea I needed to make them for his birthday celebrations!
It’s so easy to make these pops! You won’t need a mold, or one of those fancy special cake pop makers. However, you’ll need to have a cake. Bake your own cake from scratch, from a box, or you can buy a cake from your favourite bakery.
Here’s what you’ll need:
– cream cheese
– lollipop sticks
– almond bark for melting (or your choice of chocolate)
– sprinkles (I used nonpareils)
First of all, you have to remove the crust of the cake. Then, put the cake in a big bowl. Mash it with your hands. Add softened cream cheese to the cake and mix it. Mix it well, and make a small ball to make sure it’s sticking. If needed, add more cream cheese.
Once your little pops are done, melt some chocolate in the microwave in 15sec intervals (or instructions for that particular brand you got). Dip each stick in it, and stick it in the cake pop. Once you’re done, refrigerate them for at least 20min before covering them.
Melt more chocolate, enough to dip the cake pops. Dip each cake pop and roll the stick in between your fingers to help with dripping the excess of chocolate. Add sprinkles immediately after. Place the pops in a pop stand for a cleaner look. I bought a few at Walmart, but if crafty, you can try making your own. When done, place them in the fridge. If you don’t mind or it’s hot where you are, start putting them in the fridge as you go.
They’re ready to eat as soon as the cover sets! Enjoy!
– don’t skip removing the crust of the cake, as it will be easier to have a more homogeneous mix
– add more cream cheese if needed
– keep the chocolate or bark runny for better and easier coverage
– make a bread pudding with the scraps!
I hope you make them!

Ohmigoodness, I love all your DIY ideas, but these “take the cake”, Michelle! I wish I had some kids to make these for. Or maybe next time I host my book club, I’ll make these for dessert. So adorable!
