An overview of the steps involved

Making cake pops from scratch isn’t complicated but it does take time, with chilling and setting time required between steps.  The great thing is you can complete several of the steps in advance, making the process of making a delicious homemade treat for Mum straight forward.

Here’s an overview of how you make our vegan cake pops:

  1. Make your sponge cake flavour of choice (vanilla, chocolate or coffee).
  2. Make homemade frosting (or opt for a spread such as peanut butter or Biscoff to hold the cake crumbs together).
  3. Once cooled, crumble the cake into fine crumbs into a large bowl.
  4. Add the frosting (or spread) and mix together.
  5. Roll the mixture into balls and then refrigerate/freeze until firm.
  6. Re-roll the balls to smooth out any lumps or bumps.
  7. Melt the chocolate for the coating and then set it aside for 5-10 minutes to cool a little.
  8. Insert cake pop sticks (or lollipop sticks) into the cake balls.  Dip the stick in a little melted chocolate first to help set it in place.
  9. Dip the chilled cake balls into the melted chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off.
  10. Decorate the cake pop and then place it in a cake pop stand (or make-shift stand using a box with holes pushed into it) to allow the chocolate to set.
  11. Once fully set you can store the cake pops lying down in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Alternatively, you can freeze the cake pops for up to 6 weeks.
  12. Serve cake pops at room temperature.

Steps 1-6 can all be completed the day before if you’re short on time!

How do you get cake pop mixture to stick together?

Having the correct ratio of cake crumbs to frosting is important, otherwise your cake pop mixture will not hold together.  If it’s not holding together, add a little more frosting/buttercream.

Our cake pop recipes should give you the perfect ratio of cake crumbs to frosting – click here for the recipes.

How do you thin chocolate for coating cake pops?

To create a beautifully silky smooth chocolate that easily coats cake pops, we recommend adding 1 tbsp coconut oil (or vegetable oil) to around 400g of melted chocolate.  You will see it transform into a glossy and slightly thinner consistency that will glide over the cake pops.

Whilst it’s important to let the chocolate cool for 5-10 minutes before coating your cake pops, if you let it cool for too long it’ll become too thick to easily coat your cake pops.  At this point you’ll need to warm it slightly to loosen the mixture again.

Should cake pops be cold before dipping?

Yes, cake pops should be cold before dipping.  Dipping cold cake pops into (slightly cooled) melted chocolate is beneficial because the coolness of the cake ball will set the chocolate coating more quickly, which helps to prevent smudges and keep your pops in perfect condition.

How far in advance can I make cake pops?

Cake pops can be prepped 1-2 days ahead of time or frozen for up to 6 weeks, making them a fantastic make-in-advance party treat.

To make the cake pops 1-2 days ahead of time.  The cake can be baked two days in advance and you can put the cake pops together the day before you plan to serve them.  Once the coating and decoration are fully dry, store them in the fridge in an airtight container.

To make the cake pops a few weeks in advance.  Cake pops freeze well so you can make them several weeks in advance!  Once the decoration on your cake pops is fully dry, put them in an airtight container and store them in the freezer for up to 6 weeks.  Allow the cake pops to defrost in the refrigerator overnight before serving them.

Serve cake pops at room temperature.

How do you display cake pops without a stand?

If you don’t have a cake pop stand, you can use a small cardboard box or piece of polystyrene to make a homemade stand to display them.  Cover your homemade stand in pretty wrapping paper and then pierce holes in it using the cake pop sticks.

Alternatively, you could serve these cake pops on a decorative serving plate as individual truffles without a stick.

To give as a gift, you could wrap individual cake pops in their own bags, secured with a pretty ribbon on the stick.  Or add cake pop truffles (without the stick) to mason jars decorated with a ribbon bow and gift tag.

Note:  If you’re making a stand out of a cardboard box, opt for a shallow box – you want the cake pop sticks to be taller than the box so that the cake pops don’t slip all the way in.  Alternatively, place something in the box to hold up the cake pops, or just be careful making the holes – as long as the holes are not too big the cake pops should stay put.
