How To Make Cake Pops With Unique Flavors

I typically make my cake pops using the old school Bakerella method which includes a boxed cake mix and canned frosting. Unfortunately, there are only so many different flavors of premade cake mix and frosting available. That’s where Sarah of Miss CandiQuik comes in. With her blog post, Coffee Creamer Cake Pops, she opened my eyes to a whole new world of cake pop flavor possibilities.

Step 1: Make Your Cheesecake Flavored Cake

Today I will be sharing with you how to make cheesecake-flavored cake pops.

Start by baking a cake by following the directions on a box of classic white cake mix, with a couple of modifications. First, if the recipe calls for vegetable oil, use slightly less than the amount that is called for to keep your cake pops from being to oily. Second, add 10 drops of LorAnn's cheesecake flavor oil to the batter.

Step 2: Destroy Your Cheesecake Flavored Cake

After your baked cake has completely cooled, break off chunks of the cake into a food processor and run until all that is left is fine crumbs. If you prefer to skip the food processor, you can crumble up the cake by hand instead, but you may want to cut off any hard edges of the cake first.

Put your cake crumbs in a mixing bowl and add just enough cheesecake-flavored coffee creamer to make the mixture the consistency of clay. I used 4 teaspoons. Set the mixture in the fridge so that it is chilled before starting the next step.

Step 3: Make Your Cake Balls

Use your hands to roll the mixture into cake balls that are between 1 and 2 inches in diameter. I like to use a stainless steel coffee scoop to measure my cake pop mixture so that each cake ball is consistently the same size, 1.25 inches wide. Do your best to make the cake balls round and crack-free without driving yourself crazy. Always remember that your sanity is more important than cake pop perfection! Return the cake balls to the fridge to chill before moving onto the next step.

For some reason I never though to dip the stick in the coating before sticking it into the balls-o-cake.. it makes so much sense. Simple and nice and clean looking afterwards. Thank you! (author)  karalalala2 years ago
Plus it helps to keep the cake ball from falling off the stick. ;)
Very fun! Sounds like it would be great. It's fun to try new flavors :)
