There is soon-to-be a precious new little guy in our extended family, and my husband and I are excited to finally become an Aunt and Uncle!
My sister-in-law’s baby shower was my first time shaping cake pops into squares. It was definitely more difficult than round cake pops, but with patience it is definitely possible. Thanks to my other sister-in-law, my mother-in-law, and husband, this project was possible. With 2 toddlers running around, I would not have been able to pull these off alone. The letters shown below were my nephew’s initials and were varied flavors: white cake with vanilla icing and red velvet cake with butter cream icing.
- 1 Box of Cake Mix (Duncan Hines is recommended)
- 1 Container of Icing
- Plastic Gallon-Sized Ziploc Bag
- White Chocolate Candy Disks
- Cake Pop Sticks
- Decorating Icing
- Piece of Styrofoam
1. How to Make Cake Ball/Pop Batter: Bake a boxed cake mix according to the directions on the box. When cake is cooled, crumble the cake and combine with 2/3 of a container of your favorite icing in large bowl. Mix the cake and icing together throughly with your hands. You want the batter consistency to be similar to that of play-doh (not too dry, not to sticky).
2. Next, place the cake pop batter in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, releasing all the air and sealing it tight.
3. Then, cut off the front cover of the cake mix box and use the sides and bottom as a rectangular mold. Placing the plastic Ziploc full of batter, press the bag into the “box-mold” forming the batter it into a rectangle. Place it into the freezer overnight to finish the next day.
