I can has cake pops!

I tried Bakerella's cake pop recipe this week, as a test for my sister's upcoming baby shower. They turned out quite lovely, although were much more labor & time intensive than I'd originally thought. Not that they are that hard, but doing anything 50+ times is bound to be frustrating, if it's your first time! So, I decided they weren't right for the shower, but I had to post about them anyway!

Cake Pops

If you want to try these for yourself, I have a few tips. The candy melts need a few minutes to set up, so after you've melted them - don't start dipping right away. Also, you'll need to keep these in the fridge or freezer, and only take out a few at a time to dip & dry. Once they warm up, they'll fall right through the lollipop sticks! Use a piece of styrofoam to stick the pops in to let them dry, although you'll need to keep them turning for a minute or so; otherwise you could end up with candy melting down your sticks! Any other questions? I'd be happy to answer them, this was a fun test!


  1. Wow! Kari, these are gorgeous! Bet they are yummy too :)

  2. Awww they are so cute, and super fun to eat too I bet :) The lavender drizzle on top really makes them. You'll have to let us know what you do decide to make for the baby shower!

  3. Wow, I had never heard of such a delicacy! They look fabulous.

  4. with the striping.. did you run it back and forth over them and it just fell over the sides nicely.. or did you have to hold each one and go slow with each stripe?? Its hard to explain what I mean lol.. but I hope you understand what I mean. Also... do you do the piping when it is freshly warmed.. or after it set up a little bit. Ive had issues with frosting being too melty and runny.. but never tried the candy melts. A friend of mine made these from the bakerella recipe.. but they just seemed so sweet to me.. maybe less frosting in the mix??
