It’s Cake Pops Day

Cake Pops Day

Here’s a sweet little shoutout for National Cake Pops Day! YAY!

It’s been way too long since I made my original cupcake pops so I decided I needed to start dipping. This design is still one of my all-time favorites. Partly because these are the ones that captivated the internet way back when, but also because they are just sweet and simple and perfect for so many occasions. Here’s the first post I made about cupcake pops (don’t laugh) when they debuted back on February 1st, 2008… can you believe it’s been nine years ago now? Raise your hand if you’ve made or enjoyed cake pops sometime between now and then. Crazy, right! I still can’t believe how they’ve brought smiles to so many people around the world.

Anyway, BIG hugs and I hope you have a super sweet day!

Cake and Cupcake Pops

PS… here’s the cupcake pops and cake pops basic how-to instructions if you decide you want to make some, too! And here’s the first time I posted about plain cake pops (again, don’t laugh) – I think you’ll be able to tell by those old posts that I had no idea where these little treats on a stick were headed. : )

  1. Hello, Angie!
    Thank you for the perfect recipe! Soon my daughter`ll have a sweet life!

  2. I’ve made cake pops before and always had trouble with melting the chocolate to dip them in. It always seemed to clump while melting. What am I doing wrong. Love making them just anxious when making that darn melting process. Help

  3. Besides looking beautiful, seems to be very yummy.

  4. I love making cake pops! I can’t even guess at how many I have made. I use your technique as well as some of you ideas. I usually make them “stick up” so I don’t have to use anything special while the chocolate sets. I can dip them very quickly when I make them like this. My friend says they look like little solders all lined up I add a pretty ribbon and people LOVE them! I have made your frogs as well as your brides and grooms. I made 500 for prom at the school where I am a school nurse. When I am asked how I make them, I show them the video of you demonstrating tapping your wrist/hand to gently knock off the extra chocolate.  In fact, I have a tray of yellow cake balls in the fridge for me to dip tomorrow. I’ll also be making some red velvet ones this week. Thank you so much for teaching me how to bring a little bit of sunshine into people’s lives.

  5. Hi Bakerella A.K.A  Angie! Where did you get your sprinkles from and the little candy on top of the cupcake (red and pink candies)

  6. Oh Angie – I still remember the day I found you way back when, via a link for your cupcake pops and I just thought you were the bee’s knees thinking of using the little fluted cutter to shape the base. I just clicked on the link for your first plain cake pops and feel that there’s hope for me yet in the world of pretty desserts on sticks ?

  7. You changed my life with cake pops!!! Thanks to these sweets, I was able to pay for my wedding and make aome extra cash on the sidr. Meeting you at your book signing was amazing!

  14. Yes I do remember when you first published this and couldn’t wait to make my own. Mine weren’t anywhere near as cute as yours but they sure tasted good. Have made lots more since that first posting. Thanks for your creativity. Oh and my daughter-in-law met you back then at Ree Drummond’s first “house party”? You did a demo at the Lodge. I was supposed to go with her but couldn’t get off work. Oh well. Congrats on all your books.

  16. Love these! I remember seeing you on Martha Stewart and thinking wow what fun. You have become even more amazing.
    Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  17. Who knew that this little bite of heaven would become such a hit. I have made thousands over the years – even did it as a business for a few years. Now I only make them for family and a few friends. Thank you for introducing cake pops and showing me a talent I didn’t know I had within me!

    • You are so welcome. I love that cake pops have that effect on people. They totally look like impossible at first and then make you feel so empowered when you create tiny masterpieces.
