Hollan’s Cake Pops

Ice Cream Sundae cake pops

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.

Cake Balls

  • 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.

  1. Bake the cake according to package directions.
  2. Allow to cool
  3. Crumble cake with hands or whatever your heart desires
  4. Mix frosting in
  5. Shape balls into whatever shape you like
  6. Melt dipping chocolate according to package directions in microwave
  7. Put stick in the bottom of each “dough” ball and dip into the melted chocolate
  8. Place stick in Styrofoam block to keep it upright
  9. Decorate however you please
  10. 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
