Cake Pops

Jen Sobjack

Learn to make homemade cake pops from scratch! This recipe uses made from scratch cake with a secret ingredient and homemade cream cheese frosting. Switch up the candy coating with colors that correlate to the occasion. Here I used spring colors to make Easter cake pops!

These cake pops are a fun Easter dessert. With a pastel coating and sprinkles, they’ll be an adorable addition to your table!

Make a single layer cake and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached. Take care not to overbake. Allow it to cool completely.


Make a cream cheese frosting. The frosting will act as the glue to hold the cake balls together.


Crumble the cooled cake into the frosting.


Mix it together until well combined.


Shape the mixture into balls.


Dip lollipop sticks into melted candy melts and press into each ball. Coat the balls fully in cany melts then decorate with sprinkles.
