Pumpkin Cake Pop Tutorial


I make my cake balls by crumbling up cake that has been baked and cooled for several hours. I mix the cake with a small amount of frosting until the mixture is thick and holds together well. The mixture should easily pack into small balls with your hands. After you’ve packed the mixture into balls, place a lollipop stick in each ball and freeze for 10-15 minutes.

After cake balls are chilled, mix orange and pumpkin spice candy melts in a bowl and heat according to package instructions.

Remove cake pops from the freezer and coat with the candy melt one to a time. Stand upright in a jar or glass to allow the candy melt to become hard. Swirling the candy melt a little as you apply it will create ridges on the pumpkin.

Once the candy melt has become hard, apply a small amount of green icing with your piping bag to create a stem, vine, and leaves on your pumpkins.

Let icing harden completely before serving.
