Hey party peeps!
Who doesn’t love CAKE POPS! They are all the rage and are becoming staples on all my Sweets Bars! My girls LOVE them (Even my 9 year old who doesn’t even like cake!) When designing this month’s “Doodle Party” for HWTM’s Look for Less post, I wanted to come up with an interactive activity for kids to do around cake pops! I already designed a “Sprinkles” Cupcake Decorating Bar, so why not a “Sprinkles” Cake Pop Decorating Bar! YEAH!
Dust off that fondue pot! It’s time to get those cake pops dippin! The girls LOVED this activity and it was SUPER EASY…just 5 EASY STEPS: BAKE—STICK—MELT—DIP—SPRINKLE!
STEP #1: BAKE
Bake your own cake balls with a cake pop maker. (I used my Babycakes one that I got from Kohl’s)
TIP: You can also buy these from your cake pop baker. Just ask for plain, uncoated cake pops.
STEP #2: STICKS
When they are done, insert dessert sticks into the middle of each one being careful not to go all the way through.
TIP: For this “Doodle Party” I used crazy straws to hold them to pull in the doodle theme. Get creative and use any type of food-safe stick or embelish the sticks with pipe cleaners or ribbon that come in all kinds of cool colors to match your party’s theme.
STEP #3: MELT
Melt down the candy melts on the stove according to the package directions. I get candy melts from Michaels and always use a 40% off coupon to make it extra budget-friendly! When they are fully melted, place the melts in the mini crock pot or fondue pot.
STEP #4: DIP
Let the girls dip the plain cake pops into the fondue or crock pot to fully cover the balls. Make sure they have a small plate on hand to catch the drips.
STEP #5: SPRINKLE
Now time for the fun part! Put all kinds of fun sprinkles out in containers for the kids to decorate their cake pops.
