I’m someone who loves to experiment in the kitchen. I really get bored to cook those routine food. Everytime I see some new recipe on web, I have this strong desire to try it (only if it is easy and doesn’t require much hardwork). One such dish I wanted to try was Cake Pops.
Cake Pops are like a recycled version of cake (the way I think). I first tried making it when I kind of ruined making chocolate cake. It happens very often with me, my cakes never come out in piece. It always break them. I somehow work with a broken when I’m going to frost it but when I’m not planning to frost it, a broken cake doesn’t look good to serve. Besides, I still don’t have a perfect eggless cake recipe that makes cake like the one we get in cake shops. (Leave a recipe in the comment if you have one) So I prefer to recycle it in the form of Cake Pops.
Well, I have never made good cake pops until this time. And I think now is the right time to talk about it on the blog.
I’m not sharing any accurate measurement for the ingredients used. I’m just to going to explain the way I made it.
What you need to make cake pops:
- Cake crumbs – use any leftover sponge cake and crumble it using a fork or hand
- Frosting/cream/ganache/ any sweet liquid of your choice – we need some liquid to bind the cake together. I have used strawberry crush + milk mixture in this recipe
- Pop sticks
- Melted chocolate
- Colored or chocolate sprinkles
How to make cake pops:
- Take cake crumbs in a bowl, add the liquid of your choice to bind the cake crumbs. We are adding liquid just to bind the crumbs together so add only required quantity. Mix the liquid and crumbs together to form a dough.
- Once the dough is formed, make small balls out of it.
- Once all the balls are made, melt some chocolate of your choice. I have used dark chocolate in this recipe. You can also use milk chocolate or white chocolate.
- Once the chocolate is melted, take a pop stick and dip the top of the stick in melted chocolate. Now insert the dipped part half way through the cake ball. Now pour melted chocolate on the ball and cover it completed. Decorate with some sprinkles and let the chocolate set a little. Later, keep it in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set fully.
I know it is difficult to understand the instructions without any step-by-step pictures so I have shared a video recipe of it from Kanak’s Kitchen which I found helpful.
This was my tale of my first successful Cake Pops. I hope you find this post helpful. If you do, please share it with others.
