Items needed for making cake pops:
- chocolate for coating and decorating
- sucker sticks
- baked and cooled cake
- small amount of frosting
- cake pop stand or piece of styrofoam for drying
- sprinkles for added decoration (optional)
Below are the manufacturer’s directions for using the cake pop presses.
Step 1: In a large bowl finely crumble cooled cake (we recommend using a food processor) add 1/2 to 3/4 tub frosting, and mix well.
Step 2: Place in the fridge to chill for several hours. (You can speed up the process by putting it in the freezer)
Step 3: Roll mix by hand into slightly larger balls than the cavities in the press. Place balls into the “fill this side” of the mold and firmly press down.
Step 4: Open press and remove overflow. Keep press open and dip cake pop stick in melted chocolate and insert half way into cake pop. (This acts as tasty edible glue)
Step 5: Allow chocolate to cool and carefully remove cake pop from press, dip into chocolate. (Can add oil to thin chocolate)
Step 6: Tap off chocolate until you see desired detail. Decorate your heart out and enjoy!
Tip: You can use any flavor cake mix and frosting you prefer. Styrofoam works great as cake pop cooling tool and wax paper keeps chocolate from sticking to surface.
