Birthday Cake Pops

It's my friend's birthday today. Happy Birthday Leona!! Well I didn't have time to make a cake but I did have time to make something even better. Birthday Cake Pops! 

I love cake pops because in my opinion they make the perfect bite size treat and they're definitely time friendly too... And beside it's all the same ingredients that goes into a cake except you're not stuck with a huge cake eyeing you every time you open the fridge me!! 

Cake pops are small, and freeze well so have one or two, then pop the rest into the freezer for a time when your craving something sweet!

I posted a blog about making cake pops earlier click here if you want to try making them.

 I used two small round cutters, one slightly larger then the other to make the stacked birthday cake pop. Place approxiately half of the crumbled cake/frosting mixture on a large piece of waxed paper, press together lightly with your hands to make one mass, cover with another piece of waxed paper. Flatten the crumbled cake/ frosting mixture with a rolling pin applying light pressure ( you just want to flatten cake mixture more so than roll out) about 1/2 inch thickness. Then place in fridge to chill for 10 minutes.   Remove from fridge and cut out even amount of both size rounds. Do the same for the other half of the cake mixture. Chill again while preparing melted chocolate.

Prepare chocolate to dip cake pops. (see recipe) With a small spatula spread a little amount of melted chocolate on smaller cake round and attach to bigger cake round. Attach the lollipop stick into bottom layer with melted chocolate. Finish doing this with all the cake rounds and chill again to allow stick to harden and attach well. Dip the whole mini birthday cake stack cake pop in melted chocolate. Gently tap of any excess amount. I use a floral sponge to stick the cake pop sticks in to keep them upright to harden.

Birthday Cake Cakepops and Cupcake Cakepops!

To make the cupcake cake pops, follow the same steps for making the stacked cake rounds but you only cut out the smaller cake rounds for the cupcake bottoms. For the cupcake tops roll a 1 inch cake pop ball, then cut it in half. Let the cupcake topper and bottoms chill! Then attachment all the cupcake bottoms to the lollipop sticks using melted chocolate. Chill, then dip the entire bottom in melted chocolate, tap off any excess chocolate. Attach the cupcake topper immediately then chill. Melt your choice of coloured chocolate melts for cupcake tops. Dip the cupcake tops very careful not to submerge the whole cupcake pop. You want to just cover the top rounded part with coloured melted chocolate. Add sprinkles of your choice right away.

Happy Birthday!

Thanks for stopping by :)
