I’m pretty sure Starbucks “borrowed” the idea from the cake pop pioneer, Bakerella. Sure hope she’s getting royalties!
I made these for Easter gifts this year and they sure brought some smiles! I’m already hording red, white, and blue melting chocoates from the craft store to make some for the 4th of July and end-of-year teacher gifts.
My first attempt at this treat was pretty successful considering I had eager little helping hands (from my boys) help roll and sprinkle them.
I found lollipop sticks, take-out boxes, floral foam (to put in the box), paper confetti, and melting chocolates at Michael’s crafts. They would be cute in a flower pot, too.
Also you can make these ahead and freeze them in plastic containers for up to 4 weeks. They are also the perfect bite sized cake for your toddler’s birthday party!
For a healthier alternative, think fresh carrot cake, zucchini cake or chocolate zucchini cake – mix with a homemade cream cheese frosting, dip and sprinkle. There’s no way your kids will know you snuck in veggies!
Happy crafting! xox Sarah
