Funffetti Cake Pops: How to Make!
There’s just something fun about eating cake from a little stick! It’s easier than you might think to learn How to Make Funfetti Cake Pops. The first time I tasted them I thought they were like a mouthful of deliciousness, but I love cake! After all, doesn’t everyone?!?
While wedding cake will always be my absolute favorite, I think cake balls may just be my second. They take a little practice to get the proper shape, but once you get the hang of it all goes smoothly.
If you’re wondering what Funfetti Cake is, it’s a line of birthday cake themed mixes from Pillsbury. You can find lots of varieties of cake on their Funfetti line. Just pick your favorite! I use the regular vanilla mix with sprinkles inside, usually known as a “Birthday Cake” mix.
Of course to this recipe we will be adding sprinkles to the tops of the cake pops. In general it’s a good idea to give a hint of what type of cake is hiding under the icing!
Popularity of Cake Balls and How to Feature Them:
You might not see cake balls as often anymore, since desserts do trend and then decrease in popularity just like everything else. You can still find these treats at bakeries and of course at your Starbucks! I have to order one now and then since they are the perfect balance between a snack and a dessert. 🙂
If you’re thinking of making them, my recommendation would be to add these to a larger dessert board. Charcuterie boards are definitely popular right now, and these Funfetti Cake Pops are perfect for filling in any extra space on a dessert board! You can balance out other larger items like a bowl of fruit dip or a centerpiece. Or, arrange them next to fruits like strawberries and grapes. Of course you can leave off the sticks and make traditional cake balls if you’re adding them to a board.
Funfetti Cake Pops- More Tips:
Here’s a few of my tips- Use a cookie scoop to form the balls to ensure even sized cake pops. Cover your freezer safe plate with parchment paper for easy release of your cake pops.
