Tips for making easy cake pop recipes
- You don't need a cake pop mold to make them. Use ice cream scoopers, melon scoopers, or even a spoon.
- Cake pop molds are very affordable to get on Amazon. They are also very easy to use. I prefer the silicone molds because they are so easy to cleanup.
- If you don't want to make the batter from scratch, you can use a prepared cake mix. They will taste just as delicious.
- Put the melted frosting in a glass and dip the cake pop while holding the stick end. Do not dip further than the cake pop.
- Twirl the cake pop as you bring it out of the frosting glass. This will give it a smooth and even frosting.
