Make your own cake pops at home

Before and after! These Flying Pig Cake Pops are actually super simple to make yourself. Before and after! These Flying Pig Cake Pops are actually super simple to make yourself.

Cake Pops offer a tasty bite that's big enough to satisfy but not enough to stack up the guilt. 

You don't need a fancy machine or a baking background to make these cake pops from Cincinnati's own Cupcake Crazy. 

Directions:

Bake your favorite cake recipe – can be from scratch or a box mix. Let it cool and then crumble it up into fine crumbs.

Make your favorite butter cream recipe or purchase some pre-made. Add butter cream to the cake crumbs until it is the right consistency to roll into cake ball. It is similar to rolling a buckeye candy.

Roll as many cake balls as you like. We make ours about the size of a golf ball but you can make them any size you like. Lay them out on a tray and put them in the freezer to partially freeze.

You will then put some melting chocolate into the microwave and heat very carefully until it is perfect for dipping.

Remove the cake balls from the freezer and stick a lollipop stick into the pop. Dip into chocolate and then let it dry.

Once the cake pops are dipped you can go back and drizzle them with chocolate and add sprinkles and colorful sugars!
