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.

  • 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

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
