Introduction: How to Make a Cake Pop With Rainbow Stripes
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools (for the Rainbow Cake Pop)
This image shows the things that I used to make the rainbow pops.
A rolling pin also comes in handy. The most important tool is a round 1.25" to 1.5" cookie cutter.
This recipe makes about 14 rainbow pops (if you make 6 layers of color and use a 1.5" cookie cutter).
Step 2: The Cake Pop Mixture
Bake a white cake (I used a box of white cake mix). Cut off some of the darker edges. Then crumble it up and mix in
3 large spoons of white frosting. You should end up with a cookie dough-like consistency. Break this up into 5 or 6 pieces (this
depends on how many colors you want to use).
Step 3: Food Colors
I used a couple of brands of food coloring. These colors work well to make the rainbow stripes. If you use different ones, be careful because sometimes colors will look dull. So, in this step, mix the food coloring into the 6 separate pieces of dough with latex gloves.
Step 4: Assemble Layers
Roll one of the colors out or flatten with your hands until it's about .25" thick.
Then use a 1.25"-1.5" round cookie cutter to punch out the sections which will make up the layers.
Stick the circles together with a little water. You can use white frosting if you want fine white lines between the layers.
Sticks: Put the sticks in half way. Use Wilton six inch COOKIE (correction from video where I say Cake sticks) sticks which are thicker than their lollypop sticks. Prop the pops on their heads and freeze them for a few hours. Now try to say "Prop the Pops" five times really fast. Ha ha!
If you want to make a rainbow pop that's on the smaller and lighter side than the one I made,
try using a cookie cutter that's 1.25" round and/or
only use 5 layers instead of 6 (I suggest leaving out the blue)
Step 5: Dipping
After they're frozen, dip into melted baking chocolate (Yum!). Put into a foam stand and refrigerate until the coating is dry.
Step 6: Rainbow Cake Idea
This is another idea for what you can make with this technique. Instead of 1.5 inch circles, I cut out 3 inch circles, assembled the pieces to make a miniature cake, and then I froze it. After that, I covered the whole thing with chocolate. One small slice is probably enough to serve to one person. Slice the cake or the cake pops with a sharp knife and it's best to do this after it comes out of the refrigerator.
