Are you planning a baby shower for a special Momma-to-be? Wondering what to do for the cake or take-home treat? Well, if you’re the do-it-yourself type, then here’s the perfect baby shower idea for you! Make cake pops! Yes, these little chocolate-covered bites of cake are made super-cute by popping them on a stick , dipping them in chocolate, sprinkling with sugar and tying them up with ribbon!
Forget paying $3 to $4 per cupcake and try your hand at these super-simple, but super-cute cake pops! See my full super-easy cake pop tutorial here!
Set your creativity on hyper-drive and make an easy cake pop stand using Styrofoam, card stock and ribbon to display your cake pop arrangement–it would make a great centerpiece for your baby shower buffet! Or, you can package them in clear treat baggies and tie them with ribbon for your guests to take home with them. Seriously, the possibilities are endless!
Just follow my step-by-step tutorial for Strawberry Cake Pops here and decorate with light pink sugar sprinkles for this simple and chic look or go bolder with neon pink sprinkles as seen above. You can also purchase already-made royal icing flowers from Wilton and stick those into your cake pops after dipping them in chocolate.
You don’t need fancy equipment to make cake pops either! You don’t need a special pop-shaped baking pan, you simply roll the balls out. And for a cooling rack just recycle and old shipping box or piece of Styrofoam!
What I love most about this strawberry cake pop recipe is how MOIST the inside of the pop remains, even after cooling them in the fridge! A lot of times people complain about their pops being dry, if you start of with a moist and dense cake recipe you can avoid this problem and enjoy a crispy chocolate shell over a moist “pop” of cake!
