Halloween is coming up! Are you ready? My daughter is so excited that she wants to get all the Halloween decorations up THIS WEEKEND! Screw waiting for October… we’re doing this now! So, in that spirit, I’m jumping into a fun tutorial for these easy Halloween Cake Pops using Wilton products. You can find everything you need at Michael’s, Wal-Mart, or most other craft stores. Pick up some cute straws, candy melts, sprinkles, and candy decorations, and you’ve got what you need for this Easy Halloween Cake Pop Tutorial!
These simple vanilla cake pops are dipped in super white candy melts, covered in festive sprinkles, then adorned with a fun Halloween candy. What could be easier?? They look great! They taste great! And they will be a hit at your next party.
Now, I don’t make fancy, super detailed cake pops…I make them simple and fun, and I hope that you can recreate them at home. It’s not rocket science here. It’s cake, frosting, and candy. Here’s my take – do what you can do. Have fun with it. Let your kids help. Laugh and enjoy and don’t stress over some candy.
- 1 9 x 13 Cake – Baked (I used a white cake)
- 2 tablespoons Frosting (I used vanilla)
- White candy melts
- Halloween candies
- Cut cake into quarters and place 1/4 into a mixing bowl. Add 2 Tablespoons of the frosting and mix with a paddle attachment until smooth. There should be no cake lumps and there should be no sign of the frosting. The batter should be that of a play-doh consistency. Add more cake if there is visible frosting. Add more frosting if the batter appears dry.
- Measure 1 tablespoon of the cake pop batter and place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. You should get 10 – 12 cake balls from 1/4 of a cake.
- Roll the batter between clean, dry hands until smooth. Do not compress the batter.
- Place the rolled cake balls into the fridge for 30 minutes depending on how soft your cake balls were. Do not place them into the freezer to speed things along. Getting the cake pops too cold will lead to cracked cake pops.
- Melt white candy melts in a deep glass bowl or ceramic mug according to directions. *TIP – place it in the microwave at full power for 1 minute. Stir and then place back in the microwave for 30-second intervals at 70% power. Do not overheat the candy coating. It will get thicker the hotter it gets.
- Remove cake balls from the fridge. Dip 1/4 inch of the stick into the candy melts and then insert it halfway into the cake ball. Complete all the cake pops.
- Once the cake pops are set on the sticks, dip them fully into the white candy melts to coat the cake pops.
- Cover the pops with sprinkles and add any Halloween candies. Let them set before serving.
