Easter Cake Pops | Kids Fun
- one prepared cake (any flavour)
- 400g cake frosting (buttercream or cream cheese works great)
- four cups melted chocolate (white is easier to decorate)
If you thought there couldn’t be anything more fun than making cake, meet Easter Cake Pops!
They make perfect party favours, Easter gifts and add a fun touch to any gathering.
Optional: sprinkles, edible glitter and other decorations
How to . . .
Crumble up the cake in a large bowl and mix in the cake frosting. Start with half of the frosting and keep adding until the mixture is evenly moistened. You’ll want the mixture to hold its form when you press it in to a ball but still retain its cake texture. If you think it’s too dry, keep adding frosting until you’re happy with the consistency.
- Using an ice-cream scoop, form the mixture into balls, then roll them into egg shapes with your palms.
- Place the eggs onto popsicle or lollipop sticks. You can also try dipping the sticks into the melted chocolate first to keep them in place.
- Pop them in the fridge for about 30 minutes to firm the mixture.
- Roll the cake pops in the melted chocolate – make sure they are well covered.
- Decorate with decorations of choice and allow to cool.
- To make a stand for your pops, turn an egg carton upside down or stick them into a block of Styrofoam.
Tips . . .
Be gentle! The cake pops can get crumbly and have a tendency to fall apart, so be careful when covering with the melted chocolate.
Don’t have sticks? No worries! Once cool, wrap the eggs in cellophane to make cute little Easter bon-bons!
