These are the basic steps to creating and baking easy cake pops.
1. Create and bake cake using your favorite cake mix or cake recipe, cool completely. Stick in the freezer for about 20 minutes if you’re like me and want to get to the decorating.
2. In a large bowl crumble up your cake. Now add in a 1/2 cup of your favorite frosting. Using your hands mix up well (very therapeutic).
3. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper. These type of cake pop recipes make about 25 cake pops.
4. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Or leave cake pops in the fridge overnight before dipping and decorating. This will make them firm enough to decorate without falling apart.
