How to Make Ghost Cake Pops

Quick and Easy Vanilla Cake Pops with Decoration

In case you didn’t already know…I kind of love Halloween. It’s by far my favorite holiday, and not just because it’s a great excuse to eat a bunch of candy. Don’t get me wrong…excess amounts of candy is a great reason to love Halloween, but for me it’s really all about the costumes.

I mean…my dog already has four costumes and I can’t make any promises that she won’t have a fifth by the time Halloween actually gets here. I understand I have a problem…but I am ok with it.

But you can’t have all those costumes without an AWESOME party. And what’s a good party without some amazing food?

A simple cake pop recipe turns into an epic Halloween Themed treat! If you are having a Halloween Party yourself, these should definitely be on your to do list!

No ratings yet

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons cake flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

FOR THE POPS

  • About 3 tablespoons of frosting
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles, divided
  • White melting chocolate
  • Edible Pen
  • Fondant
  • 3 1/2" circle cookie cutter
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Styrofoam block

Instructions
 

For the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 8x8" pan with parchment and non-stick spray.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine butter, sugar and oil on a low speed until just combined. About 1 minute.
  • Add eggs and vanilla on medium/low speed. Mix until combined.
  • Add flours, salt, and baking powder. Mix on a low speed until just combined.
  • Slowly stream in buttermilk. Mix until combined.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Set pans on a cooling rack to cool.

Assembly:

  • Once the cake is cooled, use your hands or two forks and to crumble the cake into fine crumbs.
  • Add buttercream and mix with hands or fork until the buttercream is fully incorporated. You want the mixture to be just moist enough to roll into balls.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out a small amount of mixture and roll between cupped hands until you reach the desired round shape.
  • Put balls on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
  • Place coating chocolates in a deep bowl so you will be able to submerge the entire ball in the chocolate. Melt chocolates.
  • Dip lollipop stick into chocolate and then into the middle of the ball. Let sit for 2 minutes.
  • Dip cake ball into the chocolate until it is completely covered. Hold it sideways over the bowl and rotate it and tap it so the excess chocolate comes off.
  • Push the lollipop stick into styrofoam block to dry.
  • Once the chocolate is dry, roll out fondant and cut out a circle with cookie cutter. Place the middle of the circle at the top of the cake pop. Pull down the sides so it covers the cake pop completely and looks like a ghost.
  • Use edible pen to make eyes and mouth.

Basically, if you can eat it, you can use luster dust on it! But here are my l favorite ways to use it:

- Royal Icing Cookies
- Fondant cakes
- Buttercream Cakes/Cupcakes (but buttercream must be cold when applied)
- Chocolate Covered anything (including cake pops)
- Splattered on brownies

My roommate hates glitter more than anything…but I can’t stop using it! Look how amazing our @sweetsindeed Edible Glitter Spray makes this cupcake look!

But I have agreed to only use glitter in my studio though. I feel like that is a fair compromise 🙌

She’s not like a regular spreadsheets. She’s a COOL spreadsheet. Also quick shout-out to Olive’s poop bag hanging out of the drawer in the back!

But The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is truly amazing because it includes our advanced pricing calculator that factors in your costs, labor, overhead and profit in order to give you a final price (but you don’t have to do any of the math!!) You never have to stress about pricing your goods and services again.

But that’s not all.

Here are some other things it does:
- makes pricing quick and easy for anyone who works with food
- specific ingredient section to cost out your recipes
- 100% customizable (gives you final prices based off your own costs and materials)
- all the formulas and formating are already done for you - you just have to input your data in a few cells
- includes a cost per unit calculator
- lessons to help you figure out how much you should charge per hour and how much profit you should make!

Right now you can get it for 50% off. Check the details with the link in my bio.

The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is actually designed to be the opposite of a “regular” spreadsheet. It is there to make things LESS stressful - becuase we have done all the hard (and boring) work for you.

It makes pricing quick and easy. All you have to do is input your info in a few cells and it automatically gives you the price you should charge for your goods and services.

It’s the best thing ever.

See how you can use it to price all the goods and services in your business in my bio!

Pricing was one of my biggest struggles in the beginning. I was always overthinking it and trying to analyze what other people were charging.

But with the Pricing Calculator, I no longer had to stress out about it. The calculator simply just told me what I needed to charge. It was AMAZING and a total game-changer.

And now I want to help make pricing easy for you too. Check the link in my bio to see how you can use the calculator in your business!
