My sister is so flaming creative. She has mastered cake balls. For my shower in Tucson she made watermelon cake balls. Watermelon, the one food I could not exist without. They were unreal. She’s really mastered them and makes them for all of her kid’s parties, gifts for teachers and special events.
I asked her to send some pics along with the instructions. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing and moist these were. Even days later, they tasted better than a freshly baked cake.

Watermelon cake pops from my shower.
- Box of cake mix and whatever that recipe calls for.
- Jar of frosting
- Melting chocolate found at craft stores (whatever colors your design calls for)
- Long sucker sticks found at craft stores
- Styrofoam block or florist block.
This is so simple. Seriously. Time to get creative. If you need design inspiration, google cake pops. Some flavor ideas are chocolate cake + choc frosting, vanilla/yellow + vanilla frosting, red velvet + cream cheese frosting, spice cake + cream cheese frosting.
- Bake the cake according to package directions.
- Allow to cool
- Crumble cake with hands or whatever your heart desires
- Mix frosting in
- Shape balls into whatever shape you like
- Melt dipping chocolate according to package directions in microwave
- Put stick in the bottom of each “dough” ball and dip into the melted chocolate
- Place stick in Styrofoam block to keep it upright
- Decorate however you please
- To do the watermelon pops, she first dipped the bottom part in green chocolate, then dipped the top in a pink/red chocolate blend and used edible marker to make the seeds. She’s too good
