Let’s get started!
How to make Easter cake pops?
If you’ve never made cake pops, to put it in simple words. Cake pops are basically cake balls that look like a lollipop.
Cake pops are pretty simple to make, mix cake crumbles with your favorite frosting to form cake balls. Then dip these cute balls into chocolate and coat them with some colorful sprinkles. That’s it!
So what is so special about Easter cake pops?
Well, keeping in mind the Easter theme, you can make little tweaks to your regular cake pops like – giving the cake pops bunny shapes, peeps, Easter eggs, chicks, and carrot shapes.
Plus you can also use pastel colors and a variety of sprinkles to decorate your Easter cake pops. That’s the main objective of this post.
I’ll just walk you through a short Easter cake pops recipe.
- Cake mix
- Candy melts
- Cake pop sticks
If you got some cake left over, it’s awesome, just crumble it. Else, bake a cake using a cake mix. Add eggs, oil, and water to the cake mix. Mix them well as directed in the cake mix instructions.
Spread it on a baking pan, and put it into the oven.
Once it is baked, crumble the cake. Add your favorite frosting to the crumbles, and mix till you get the desired consistency so that you can roll the balls.
Then, freeze the cake ball for 30-45 minutes so they stay together.
Cake Pop Cracking Problem (Here’s the fix)
Those who have already made cake pops know it very well and must have faced this issue of cracks forming on the cake pops.
The reason is the change in temperature. When you take out the cake balls from the freezer, it’s still cold and the candy melts that you’ll coat later are hot.
So, when you coat candy melts on cake balls and then freeze them, due to changes in temperature, cracks are formed on cake pops.
Here’s the fix
To avoid the crack formation, take the cake balls out of the freezer and sit them out for 1-2 hours. So that the cake balls come to room temperature before you dip them into the candy melts.
Now is the time to coat candy melts to the cake balls. For that, melt candy melts. If you want to give pastel colors to your pops, use white candy melts and add gel food coloring.
Take the candy melts in a mug and dip the tip of the stick into the candy melt and insert it into the cake balls. Give a gentle tap to drip off excess liquid. After a few seconds, add a few sprinkles of your choice to decorate it.
Put them on a block of styrofoam and let them dry.
The fun part is the Easter cake pops decoration. Because this gives you the freedom to showcase your creativity. You can try a swirl design, or shiny finish, add glitter pearls, or marbled or drizzle design.
