Vanilla Cake Pops

Amazing works of art exploding the markets today are the glorious cake pops! I’ve seen these brilliant inventions everywhere. Cake pops entice the child inside of me by combining the lollipop and cake into one treat. You are able to get as creative, gourmet or simple as you want with each of your designs. The world is your cake pop!

Every year when Christmas and New Years comes to an end and we feel like we’ve just recovered from the holidays, up pops Emma’s Birthday. She turned 12 this year. It’s hard to believe that 12 years have flown on by! The first moment I laid eyes on her I burst into tears and announced “She’s so beautiful!”. She took my breath away then, and she still does today!

To celebrate her birthday, we had a few girls over for a party. It was a mac and cheese, cake pop, movie night kind of party! Emma and I prepared the cake balls before they arrived. We laid out the cake balls, lollipop sticks, melted milk chocolate, melted white chocolate and sprinkles on the counter so everyone could decorate their own. After eating some ooey gooey low calorie homemade Mac and Cheese with Almond Milk we started decorating cake pops. These girls had a blast decorating them, and it was fun seeing how creative they were.

This was probably one of my favorite birthday party ideas. The girls were entertained and they had fun! While they settled in to watch Soul Surfer (Which was an amazing movie, by the way) I packed up their cake pops as “goodie bag” gifts to go home with them. I think they really enjoyed being able to share their gourmet cake pop creations with family.

  1. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/2 cup butter, softened
  5. 1 cup sugar
  6. 2 eggs
  7. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  8. 1/2 cup milk
  9. 1 12 oz. bag milk chocolate chips
  10. 1 12 oz. bag white chocolate chips
  11. sprinkles
  12. lollipop sticks
  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add a small amount of the flour mixture then the milk, beating thoroughly between each addition. Alternate until all is combined.
  4. Transfer batter to a pastry bag. Press enough batter into each of the cake pop molds to fill ONLY to the top (Once closed, this is only half of the round cake pop. The batter will rise).
  5. Bake 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool.
  6. Melt baking chips in deep glass containers in the microwave.
  7. Insert lollipop sticks into cake balls. Dip cake pops into melted chocolate and decorate as desired.
  1. *Be careful not to burn the chocolate in the microwave. Cook in 30-45 second increments, stirring in-between.
  2. *Do not let even one drop of water to mix with the chocolate. This will make the chocolate thick, sticky and difficult to coat your cake pops.
