Cake pops are the perfect dessert or take-home treat for a baby shower! Try this strawberry cake pop recipe for a baby girl's shower!  Your guests and Momma of honor are sure to enjoy!

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!

Want to punch-up the color scheme of your baby shower?  Then try neon pink sprinkles and acid green accents for a citrus-y color combination for your Summer time shower!

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!

It's easy to roll your cake pops with your hands, no need to buy any fancy pan!

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!

Recycle an old box and make slats with a knife for a super-easy cake pop cooling tray!

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!

Helpful hint: sticking your lollipop stick almost all the way through your cake ball gives the most stability during the dipping!
