The Tools To Make Christmas Cake Pop

These aren’t the easiest dessert, but if you have the right tools, you’re going to have a more simple time in the kitchen. Here’s everything you’ll need via Amazon:

Cake Pop Mold, Cakesicle Mold

Step-By-Step Directions To Make Your Mickey Christmas Cake Pops

  • For the red fondant bow: Dust your hands and the fondant mold with cornstarch. Work the red fondant to where it becomes soft. Pinch off about 1 tbsp of the red fondant and mold it into the small size bow. Remove and place onto the cookie sheet. Allow to air dry overnight.
  • To make the cake portion: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with liners. Using a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, milk, butter and eggs until combined and smooth. Fill the cupcake liners ¾ way full.
  • Bake in the oven for 21 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Once the cupcakes have cooled, remove them from their cupcake liners and crumble them into a large mixing bowl.
  • To Make The Cake Pop Dough: Once all the cupcakes have been crumbles into moist sand like texture, scoop in about ¼ – ½ C of the chocolate frosting. Using either your hands or a rubber spatula, mix in the frosting into the crumbs until a dough like mixture forms.
  • To Assemble & Decorate: Remove 36 solid round chocolate melting wafers from the bag and set aside. These will be used to make the ears. Using the remaining chocolate in the wafer bags, pour into a large bowl.
  • Using a microwave, melt the chocolate in 30 second increments, mixing after each time to ensure smooth melted chocolate. Once the chocolate is melted, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the melted chocolate into the cakesicle molds. Move the cake pop mold around to ensure that the sides are coated in the chocolate. Adding Chocolate To Cake Pop Mold
  • Carefully push in the popsicle stick into the bottom of the Christmas cake pop mold. Place the mold into the fridge for about 10 minutes. Once the chocolate is set, remove from the fridge.
  • Take about 1-2 tbsp of the cake mixture and carefully press into the mold, make sure the side of the chocolate does not break. Remelt the chocolate used to coat the cake pop  mold.
  • Once the chocolate is remelted, spoon on about 1-2 tbsp of the chocolate onto the top of the cake mixture into the mold. Place mold back into the fridge for another 30 minutes. Carefully remove the cakesicle from the mold. Place onto the wire rack. Repeat steps with remaining cake dough. Using the remaining melted chocolate, spoon it into a piping bag. Chocolate cake Pops Making
  • Decorating Mickey and Minnie Directions: Carefully cut the bottom off of the chocolate rounds that were set aside earlier. You will want the bottom of the chocolate rounds to be flat in order to stick to the sides of the cake pop.
  • Cut the tip off the piping bag. Carefully pipe a line of melted chocolate onto the smooth bottom of the chocolate round. Carefully place the chocolate round onto the side of the Christmas cake pop. Hold it there for about 30 seconds or more to make sure the the round doesn’t fall.
  • Repeat steps to all of the Christmas cake pops made. Once that is completed, dizzle lines of chocolate onto the cake pops. Sprinkle some christmas sprinkles onto the chocolate lines. Carefully remove the bows from the cookie sheets and place in the center of half of the cake pops. Allow the chocolate to set before enjoying!
