Easter Colored Cake Pops For My Birthday Girl

We had a sweet week, like Birthday Girl sweet and Cake Pops sweet :) We made sweet cake pops and decorated them with Easter colors, we went to buy a special gift and then ate quite a bunch of cake pops with friends before bed. It’s definitely something we don’t do everyday, so it felt extra special! And the party dragged till the next morning with cake pops for breakfast and I was thankful they were all gone by then :)

  • 1 9 inch round cake ( white, lemon, strawberry, chocolate..homemade, store bought or from a box)
  • 2/3 cup of warm cream cheese (warmed in the microwave for 40 seconds)
  • 3 cups of colored chocolate melts ( or coating), any colors
  • 1/2 cup of sprinkles , sugar pearls, colored crystal sugar
  • 30 lollipop sticks
  • ice cream scoop , tablespoon measurement or kitchen scale


  1. Please see tip section above for all the detailed tips.
  2. Start off by gently slicing the crust, tops and sides of the cake to make sure it’s all the same color and has no golden tone.
  3. Break the cake into a large bowl and take a fork, start crumbling the cake into fine crumbs. Use your hands to help.
  4. Add the cream cheese and use the fork and your hands again to blend it into the cake until it’s soft and the cake can easily be shaped into a smooth ball.
  5. Take an ice cream scoop or scale ( to weigh 1 ounce balls) and pinch the cake mixture with your hands first to smoothen it out before rolling it into an even ball. repeat with the remaining cake.
  6. Place the rolled cake balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and chill them in the fridge for 30 minutes while you prepare the coating.
  7. Melt the coating, each color separately—either in a microwave safe bowl or using a water bath on your stovetop. It’s best to use deep bowls rather than wide bowls for this task.
  8. Take a lollipop stick and dip an in inch of it into a melted coating bowl and then dip the stick with the melted coating tip into a cake ball. Dip the lollipop stick more then half way in the cake ball to make sure it’s secure. Continue with the remaining cake balls.
  9. Take each cake pop and dip the cake ball into a coloured coating bowl and gently swirl it around to coat. Then lift the lollipop stick and have it at a 180 degree angle (same level as the edge of the bowl) so the excess coating can drip back to the bowl.
  10. Lift the cake pop and secure the bottom tip of the lollipop stick onto a styrofoam block so the coating can dry out.**if you’re coating it with sprinkles and pearl sugars, then sprinkle it right away before the coating sets. Otherwise let the coating set, and then drizzle random lines or shapes or more melted coating over the set cake pop, and sprinkle the sprinkles or sugars over it so it sticks only to the drizzles you made.
  11. be as creative as you want to with decorating it and enjoy ! :)
