Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats


  1. I didn’t see the step in which we make the cake mixture into balls. What have you found to be a good size?

  2. What a neat idea! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Hi Robin … thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, about the tri-shutter card. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but we were travelling and barely had cell phone service, let alone internet! But we are back now and fully hooked up again. I cannot locate my .pdf for the TriShutterCard, but I remember it was easy to set up once I had the measurements. You’d want to make a proto type first so you are familiar with the cutting and folding part, but here are two tutorials I have found for you:

    Hope this helps!

    Your imagination deserves every ounce of success. Good for you for inspiring so many others!

  5. How did you mke the hat on Frosty?

  6. Jeannie

    Can you freeze these after decorated?

  7. Miasmomma

    Pretty sure I saw many of these on cakerella’s website.

  8. I make these as well! They are tons of fun, and very delicious. Only thing I do different is refridgerate overnight. They stay on the sticks better when I do. How do you get away only refrigerating them for 15 mins? That’s pretty awesome!

    For starters, you do NOT use an entire can of frosting! If you do, they will be too mushy, won’t set up right, and will fall right off the sticks. Use 1 cup at the most, even less if you have a moist type of cake. Also, don’t freeze them after the balls have been formed. If you freeze them and then dip them, the candy coating WILL crack (voice of experience here). Same thing goes for if you refrigerate them overnight. Let them warm up slightly before you dip them because they will be cold and the melted candy will be warmer. Cold pops + warm cany melts = cracked cake pop.
