Want to know How To Make Cake Pops?

Well these gorgeous little morsels aren’t as simple as they look. There is a bit of work involved, but they are simply divine and a great way of using up excess birthday cake or a flopped cake (we’ve all done it!).

How To Make Cake Pops

For the Chocolate Cake, check out our recipe for Frugal Chocolate Cake – but a cheap packet cake would work, too!


  1. Bake the cake and totally cool.

  2. Break it up in a bowl with your hands so it resembles breadcrumbs, but don't overwork it.

  3. In a separate bowl, whip together the cream cheese, icing sugar and butter until smooth.

  4. Mix in the cake crumbs with a wooden spoon (don't use the electric beaters for this).

  5. Gently work with your hands until the mixture can be mixed into small balls that stay together. but don't make it too wet!

  6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate - overnight is perfect if you can!

  7. Form small balls with the mixture with your hands and stick a lolly pop stick in each one - place on a tray lined with baking paper until completed.

  8. Gently melt the chocolate over a double boiler or very carefully in the microwave.

  9. Gently run the lolly pop through the melted chocolate until covered and place on a baking sheet and place in the freezer so it sets very quickly.

  10. Once set, repeat the chocolate dipping and dip in the sprinkles or decorate as required.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Cake Pops are suitable to freeze for up to two months. Remove from the freezer and place in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.
  • If you don't want your Cake Pop to have a 'flat head' from being placed on the greaseproof paper, see if you can find something to set them in upright in the freezer (but this will take a fair bit of room!).
