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.

Ingredients
  

BUTTERMILK CAKE

  • 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

FOR THE POPS

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

Instructions
 

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.

Assembly:

  • 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.

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.
