Holiday Cake Pops

It’s our third post about Christmas and Holiday baking…you can read our COOKIE POST HERE and the CUPCAKE POST HERE

And today we are talking about how to make CAKE POPS!

I can’t write a post about cake pops without gushing about Bakerella.  Angie is the premier authority on the cake pop craze!  She has a fabulous book filled with incredible baked goody designs, Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats.  This book is at the TOP of my Christmas wish-list, although I have a feeling I could never make MY cake pops look like Angie’s cake pops.

If I don’t get the Bakerella book from Santa, I’ll cry a little… and then after I dry my tears, I’ll click on over to get instructions on how to make Christmas cake pops, using Bakerella’s cake pop tutorials HERE:

Now, this next post isn’t a tutorial, BUT if you have a little experience with cake pop decorating, you might just be able to figure out how to make some of these fabulous Christmas Cake Pops from Sweetopia.  There are several OTHER designs too, so be sure to click on over!


I love the idea of using cake pops on a dessert table for Christmas, and I think you’ll love the idea too, when you see these next holiday cake pops from Mrs. A In the Cove:  (you’ll need to scroll down to see the cake pops in her post, but she has some OTHER great ideas for decorating a Christmas Dessert Table).

For some seriously cute ornament cake ball pops (or Bauble Pops), check out the recipe and instructions (AND a book review) here on Simply Sweet Home:


During my quest for cake pop designs, I found a fun blog called 365 Days of Cake Pops.  Because “Every Day Should Pop!”  Check out her adorable gingerbread cake pops:


And finally Snowman Cake Pops… the pro herself shows you how to make these Bakerella cake pops:

So tell us, what will YOU be baking this year?  Cookies?  Cupcakes?  Cake Pops?
