What are Cake Pops?

Cake pops are small cake bites in lollipop form. They are made by combining cake crumbs with frosting or chocolate and rolled into a ball form. Then the ball is then dipped in chocolate.

Cake pops were first created as a way to use up leftover cake scraps. But now, they have taken on a life of their own. were first created as a way to use up leftover cake scraps. But now, they have taken on a life of their own.

  3. Add frosting to the crumbs to create your pop base
  4. Roll your individual cake pops

My Top Cake Pop Tips:

  1. Let your naked cake pops rest in the fridge before you start dipping.
  2. Dip your stick in the melted chocolate and then into the ball. Then let that rest in the fridge for another 5 minutes.
  3. Use a deep bowl or jar to hold your melting chocolate so you can fully cover the pop.
  4. Make sure you tap off excess chocolate before you start to cover it with sprinkles.
  5. Stick the stick into a styrofoam block or a cake pop holder like this one.

Servings 15 cake pops



  • 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
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles
  • 3/4 teaspoon Strawberry flavor
  • Pink food coloring


  • About 3 tablespoons of frosting
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles, divided
  • Pink melting chocolate
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Styrofoam block


For the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8×8" 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 cake flour and all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix on a low speed until just combined.
  • Slowly stream in buttermilk. Mix until combined.
  • Add strawberry flavor and a few drops of pink food coloring and 3 tablespoons of sprinkles. Mix until combined.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Set pans on a cooling rack to cool.


  • Once the cake is cooled, use your hands or two forks and to crumble the cake into fine crumbs.
  • Add 3 tablespoons of sprinkles and mix it into cake crumbs.
  • Put remaining sprinkles in a small bowl and set aside.
  • 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 the lollipop stick into chocolate and then into the middle of the ball. Let sit for 2 minutes.
  • Dip the 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.
  • Use a spoon to cover the ball with extra sprinkles. Make sure the entire ball is covered.
  • Push the lollipop stick into a styrofoam block or cake pop holder to dry.


*Makes 15- 20 pops

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

Rose Gold, Gold and Black available @sweetsindeed.

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 🙌
