Birthday Cake Pops-Better than Star-WHhhoooo!!!!!



Cake Pops! Wow! How can anything this simple be so absolutely, totally delicious?!? Have you tried the Birthday Cake flavor cake pops at Starbucks? Well, let me tell you, this easy to make, semi-home made version is even better! No joke. These, honestly, are some of The Best Cake Pops ever! I make them with a French Vanilla cake mix and a tub of premade frosting. The hardest part about making these is getting the candy coating melted enough to get a fairly smooth coating. Even if you don't get a smooth coating, you probably will add some cute sprinkles or something and you won't even notice the coating! I like to make my pops bigger than the ones from Starbucks. I mean why not! The first time I ever had a cake pop was from a specialty Cake Pop store in Long Beach and theirs set the bar for size. Theirs were at least double the size of the ones from Starbucks and that's how I make mine now. I can tell you it makes the whole fam pretty darn happy. I also like to serve and eat them when they are really cold, straight out of the fridge. Since these don't have cream cheese in the frosting (like red velvet cake balls- super amazing btw!), I don't think that technically they have to be refrigerated.  I just significantly prefer them this way! I hope you give these babies a try soon!


This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.

  8. I've been looking at cake pops for a long time now, but I've been hesitant to try them, not because of the technique, but I can't figure out what they would taste like (made out of cake crumbs and canned frosting). Can you tell me more? They sure LOOK cute.

  14. If you visit bakerella.com you can get step by step instructions! She's the original cake pop queen!

    For those who posted about smoothness.... Add a little bit of paramount crystals to thin it out ... If it's too thick it will not be very smooth, it will also be heavy And possibly causing the pop to fall off.

    You can use many things to bind the cake... For my chocolate pb dream I make I chocolate cake and bind with peanut butter and dip in chocolate and sprinkle some chopped up reeses pb cups on them! They are one on my most requested pop!

  15. magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, MERUJA OWO. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and family problem and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
    I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend MERUJA OWO for any kind of help you want.
    his email address is: nativedoctor101@live.com
    if you want to ask me anything my e-mail is: jannet_madeson@yahoo.com
    Kind Regards,

  16. These are the cutest desserts I've ever come across. I'm going to try them it sounds easy enough. Love the rainbow colored sprinkles and the peanut butter as a binder alternative sounds good too. It just seems like a waste to bake a cake & destroy it but I guess I can do it.

  17. When you copy someone else's recipe to the tee, you should give them the credit. You did not come up with this recipe, correct? Bakerella.com and her published book has this recipe, in fact, i bet it has copyright in the book, which means you are breaking the law.

    I'm just a random cake pops fan who detest plagiarism, not affiliated to bakerella.com in any way (except for her printed recipe book in my kitchen, which I obtained legally)

    1. I made cake balls for my daughter's 16th birthday August 23, 2008. Bakerella cookbook wasn't even written then so I don't think she stole the recipe from her. Many people make cake balls with different variations of cake and frosting.

    2. I was addicted to Starbucks cake pops but my budget wasn't. I figured it out on my own also! Some people just have negativity of the brain~.
