    Holiday treats: How to make cake pops

    Made most popular by the coffee shop franchise Starbucks, cake pops are a new sweet on the scene just in time for

    home made cake pops made by junior shelby burchfield | paige staggs photo

    this holiday season.

    The pops are practically cake balls, yet on a stick. It’s every sweet tooth dream; portable cake. What’s not to like about this delectable treat? They are more than just cake balls on a stick; they are whatever the creator wants them to be. Once you dip them in icing, they can be decorated as reindeer, turkeys, or just dipped in nuts or any other topping.

    Junior Shelby Burchfield said she enjoys making them in her free time.

    “My friend and I felt like being a baker for a day, so we made cake pops because they were so easy to make,” Burchfield said.

    If you’re interested in make them here are the ingredients and the process for chocolate cake pops.

    Ingredients for Cake Balls

    2 cups flour

    2 cups sugar

    1 tsp baking soda

    ¾ tsp salt

    ½ tsp baking powder

    ½ cup room temperature butter

    1-cup room temperature water

    ½ cup milk

    1 Tbsp vanilla

    5 oz dark chocolate, melted and cooled

    2 eggs

    First, preheat the oven to 350F and flour 2 cake tins. Next, mix all the ingredients until the mixture is smooth, and then pour them into a cake tin. Leave them in the oven until a toothpick can slide out without batter on it. Once they are cool enough to handle, shape the cake around a lollipop stick into balls.

    Ingredients for Frosting

    1-cup butter

    4cups sugar

    2 Tbsp vanilla

    2 oz dark chocolate, melted and cooled

    2 Tbsp cold water

    Mix all these ingredients into a spreadable, smooth frosting. Spread the frosting around the cake pops and leave them out for the frosting to stiffen. To decorate, don’t wait for the frosting to stiffen before dipping them in the topping of choice.
