Cake Pops Recipe
Here is a recent letter from one of my many visitors to this website:
Finally! I’ve been searching the internet for someone who has baked cake pops with the pans from the infomercial! As you probably know the set comes with a pamphlet with some instructions and strongly suggests that if you want a denser cake pop to cut the liquids in half from the cake mix and add a package of instant pudding. Is this what you’ve done? I tried it and the batter was so thick and then it said to spread the batter over the pan with a spatula before putting the top pan on. I should have known that it was waaaaay too much batter. Anyway, it was a complete disaster! I so want to learn how to do these darling little cakes. What recipe do you use? It sounded like you just use a regular cake mix without adding or subtracting anything. If so, does that consistency of cake hold up when dipped in a melted topping?
Thank you so much for your help.
My response – unedited.
I didn’t like the thick cake pops recipe either. What I tried that works great is to use a standard out of the box (Betty Crocker) cake mix and replace the water with milk, but keep the measurements about the same. It pours a lot easier – just fill up half of the cake pops (the bottom half), put on the top pan and bake. You should see the cake pops grow outside the holes a bit, but when you take them out of the oven, you can remove the extra that grows out. They will be light and tasty. They will also hold up just fine being dipped. If you do use the sticks, put the end of the stick in the frosting first before stabbing it into the cake ball.
Another thing – It was easier for me to not use the sticks. I simply take them out and with a spoon dip them into chocolate, and then set them down into the mini cup cake holders ( those circle papers with the zig zag ridges ). Anyway, that is what works best for me. It was too much work to try and use sticks and them finding a way to keep them held with Styrofoam or something. After that, the kids will usually help me sprinkle on the candy pieces or decorative frosting.
