How about “Diet Cake Pops?” I have been making cake pops for years now and by accident some time ago I started making “diet cake pops!”
Your typical/basic cake pop recipe is a box cake mix, baked as per the directions and then crumbed down and kneaded with some canned frosting. Of course you can get fancy and add homemade frosting or some other “Binder” or use your best scratch cake recipe, but for the most part cake pops are cake mixed with frosting until you get to a pliable dough you can roll into balls and dip into chocolate.
So how do I make these “diet” cake pops?! Read more →

So, I have been in the cake industry for about 4 years now. That being said and can count on one hand, how many actual cakes I have ever made that were not served up as a cake pop or that wasn’t served in the pan I baked it in…Yes, I am known to frost a cake right there in the baking pan for my kiddo’s parties;)!!
The first time I saw Royal Icing LIKE THIS, standing on it’s own, was from Cake Instruction By Dawn Parrott, CWPC at Cake Camp in Las Vegas last year! She made an absolutely stunning gazebo and I just couldn’t leave without ALL her instructional DVD’s!!

These are adorable and Perfect for your Holiday Party!
Have you ever used CakePlay Isomalt? All you need to do is microwave it until it melts down and gets all bubbly, wait for the bubbles to dissipate and then pour it into your favorite molds – and it sets super fast! For these incredibility cute holiday cake pops I am using the Mini Light Bulb Mold! Check out this short video to see how easy!!
Wait! Did you see that cake pop roller;)!? The Mini Easy Roller is new and rolls 9 cake pop balls (..or cookies, and even meatballs) at a time! Just think, its like having 9 of your friends helping you roll all your holiday balls;)!! There is also a larger version that rolls 21 at once! You can check both of these Easy Rollers out here!
Next you are going to say, but my cake pop mixture looks much different than yours! How did you make that? Well, I make it the easiest way possible!! I bake a box cake and knead it down to a doughy consistency and to do this really fast I just pop the baked cake – after it is cool to the touch – into the food processor and turn it on! Yep, just cake, no icing and turn it on!
Do you like the icing part? No worries!! The Easy Roller will work even better if you add the icing (just add it all at once to the processor)! All I am saying is you don’t need it to bind the cake into cake pop dough, the food processor will do it for you in a matter of minutes. If you don’t have a food processor, you don’t need to go out and buy one, you can still knead the cake by hand, but for the Easy Roller you need to knead it just a little longer than you normally would if you were going to roll cake balls by hand. When you roll them by hand, you are basically kneading a smaller portion into the ball shape and when you use the Easy Roller it can only roll what you give it, it cannot knead at all. This is why we say knead it a bit more on the front end (until it looks like one giant cake ball) and save hours rolling!!
This year we have an amazing giveaway for you! And I am excited you clicked over to see all the goodies I have collected for One Very Lucky Winner! – Congratulations Julia!
The Easy Roller – The Easy Roller can roll up to 21 balls at time! It was designed for cake pops but you can roll so much more! You just need a pliable dough, think Play-doh consistency. I roll cake pops, cookies, even meatballs!
