Oh, Christmas tree

I love baking and have been baking treats for a long time whenever there is a party or gathering of some sort. When I found out about cake pops, I hopped right on that wagon! I just wanted to share a quick tutorial of how to make cake pops, and tis the season for Christmas themed desserts of course, these are some Christmas tree cake pops I made!

Bake your cake (as you would any cake). After it is cooled completely, crumble the cake up. I use my hands, but you can use a food processor as well.

Here’s the fun part. After the cake is crumbled, dump in the frosting and mix it like you would meatloaf until it looks similar to the photo on the right. You want it to be able to hold a shape. You may need to add frosting if it will not hold up.

Now shape your tree pops! It’s easier than it may seem at first; just shape them into cones. After shaping, refrigerate the cake pop. I like to keep them in overnight, or you can put them in the freezer for an hour or so. When you begin to dip them into the melted candy melts, I recommend only taking a few out of the freezer at a time. If the cake pops warm up too much, they will not stay on the sticks and fall apart. After they are fully coated, decorate with mini kisses candies or sprinkles.

Side note: lollipop sticks and Styrofoam can be found at Michaels. They are both imperative in displaying cake pops, but I hope one day soon to find something a little sturdier. I always put them back in the refrigerator after they are done until I am ready to serve them.

I’ve also made ice cream cone and cupcake cake pops!

    • Honestly, I can barely eat it after I make it. I feel like working so hard on it (and smelling it for the couple hours you’re working on it) makes you a little adverse to it haha Try it!
