Such a silly question, right?

Who doesn’t love those super cute little cake bites on a stick?

I love cake pops because they are a treat for the kids and for me— well we are only eating a fraction of a piece of cake, so it’s great way to enjoy sweets without overindulging.

I’m slightly addicted. 🙂

How to Make Easy Cake Pops

For this recipe, I wanted to make a cake pop for Easter. I went with lots of pinks, yellows, & whites.

The first thing you will want to do is bake a cake in a 13″ x 9″ pan.

Once it’s baked, let it cool to room temperature.


Start your cake pops by making your favorite boxed cake. We picked vanilla.


Then the fun starts. 🙂

You’ll cut the cake into large sections and place in a large bowl. Then add in the icing.

Then you smush it all together!

While you could definitely use your hands to combine it all, I found it easier to let a mixer do the work.

Crumble the cake into a bowl, add your icing, and mix it all together


I’ve tasted my way through a few cake pop recipes and it seems like the less frosting there is, the better the cake pop. So perhaps the hardest part of these projects isn’t waiting for the cake to cool, it’s limiting yourself to a small amount of frosting in the cake!


Make these Easter cake pops even easier by using your stand mixer to mix the cake pop dough


Once they were combined, I use a cookie dough scoop to portion / shape them into cake pops.

Once they are in the cake pop form, you will place a treat stick in the top center of all the cake pops.

Helpful hint: After rolling the balls, melt a few candies melts in the microwave. Dip the end of the treat stick in the candy and then into the cake pop. It will help keep them on the stick!


Dip the end of the cake pop stick in the chocolate before adding your cake pop

These guys  are ready for the freezer for a few minutes.


Before coating your cake pops, pop them in the freezer for a little bit to solidify.


After hanging out in the freezer, it’s time to start dipping the cake pops!


Melt your white chocolate candy melts with a little bit of coconut oil or crisco


When you heat the candy melts, use small but deep bowls.  You’ll be able to dunk the cake pops without having to heat up too much candy melts at one time.

To keep the cake pops upright after dipping, I poked them into a styrofoam block.


Once dipped, decorate your Easter cake pops with fun sprinkles


Totally worth the wait in the freezer 🙂 🙂
