Tuesdays At The Table - Cake Pops

Welcome to another yummy Tuesday, gang!

I've recently started reading the lovely Lis' blog. She introduced me (and all her other readers) to cake pops. I was in awe, I was intregued! I just HAD to try this myself! Lis of Lis Loves got her recipe from Bakerella and I, of course, need to give them credit for my little trip to cake pop land. :-) I hope I do them proud (or at least nothing cringe-worthy!).
Lovely Yellow Ribbons

Cake Pops
1 boxed cake mix (9x13)
1 can of frosting
1-2 bags of Wilton melting chocolates
Lollipop sticks
Wax paper
Make your cake of choice following the box directions. Allow to cool for a few hours.
Crumble into as fine as crumbs as you can get. (I used a both hand crumbling and fork fluffing/shredding). Mix in your frosting (I only used about 3/4 of the can. Remember, you can always add more; taking some out isn't going to happen.) Refrigerate for an hour or two until it firms up.
Roll balls into about 1" circles and place on wax paper. (I admittedly didn't follow directions and just piled them on a plastic plate. Refrigerate again for a few minutes.
Melt a little chocolate and dip the stick into it before putting a stick in each cake pop. You got it... refrigerate!
Melt the rest of your chocolate and gently swirl the cake balls in and tap the excess off. Use a Styrofoam block and let them harden standing up.
FYI... I used yellow cake and milk chocolate frosting.
What's cooking in your kitchen this week?


  1. I really need to try these. Great idea to use the styrofoam!

  2. They look delicious! I guess my mom could try to make them!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. I am going to have to try these!
    Thanks for sharing and for hosting!
    Many blessings!

  4. Those look amazing. I am not sure what will be cooking just yet.

  5. How fun! This would be a great way to "save a cake" that turned out crumbly or cracked. I am bookmarking this idea.

  6. Oh my goodness, I am so impressed (and suddenly hungry...)! You made those look really easy to make, but they still look yummy. I keep seeing people trying to make these and I haven't been brave enough to actually do them myself. I may have to give it a try. I could totally see these being a cute Christmas snack, couldn't you? Maybe with like green and red sprinkles?

  7. Thank you soooo much for posting this! I've seen these on a lot of blogs, but no one ever bothers to share how to make them :-)

  8. Those look awesome! :) Thanks for sharing.

  9. Yummy aren't they? you've GOT to try them with the Red Velvet cake mix and cream cheese frosting!!! OMG they drool over those every time I take them some where!!


  10. I love bakerella... She does amazing things with those Cake Balls!!

  11. I made cake pops for my kids' birthday parties this summer. They were a big hit. You can check out my version of the little treats here.


  12. What fun to make with the kids!

  13. I have seen cake balls everywhere lately. Perhaps it's time I actually make some...

  14. I keep wanting to try these, I've seen similar ones on Bakerella, I just keep forgetting to get the ingredients! Thanks for the reminder :)

  15. Yum! These look so much easier than those pie-pops that were circulating the net a few months back.

  16. I am heading to the grocery store and to Michaels to get the stuff to make these TODAY! I have seen these and never thought they would be so easy to make. At least, I hope they're as easy as they look!
