Cake Pops for Dads
   Tags: baking, cake, cake decorating, cake pops, cakes, candy, carrot cake cupcakes, Chocolate, Fathers Day,melting chocolate

It started with Bakerella. Before we knew it, cake pops — small molded cakes dipped in chocolate and presented
on lollipop sticks — had taken over the baking blogosphere. We saw cakes shaped into snowmen, bunnies,
ducks and rattles and breast cancer ribbons, flowers and all sorts of fun things. Both hobbyist and professional
kitchen gurus jumped on the bandwagon. The famous Pioneer Woman has hosted retreat-style bakefests and
posted tutorials. Even Starbucks began featuring the bite-sized desserts in their coffee bars.

With Father’s Day just a week away, it’s time we put a slightly less-girlie look on these too-cute creations. I’m
going to show you how. Recently a friend and I (Faithful readers will remember my amazing baking friend who
made this.)took it upon ourselves to create some cake pops for dads. Here are the results:

                                                    Golf Ball Cake Pops




                                                     Sports Cake Balls




                                                         Grill Cakes
Typically with cake pops you dip your shaped cakes into melted chocolate and then top with drizzled caramel or
sprinkles, etc. That is what we did with our grills, but with the sports pops we utilized chocolate molds. You can
find these at your local candy making supply store. This added an extra step because the molds only cover half
of each ball at a time, but it greatly diminished our efforts of decorating by hand. I loved the simplicity of it!

How to make cake pops:
Start by creating your favorite frosting and baking your favorite cake just like normal. You want standard
recipes, nothing fancy. Try the All-American Chocolate Cake, for example, with Chocolate Frosting or Carrot Cake and
Cream Cheese Frosting. Whatever your flavor choices, remember that you will also be dipping these in chocolate or
melted candy disks. The end result can be exceedingly rich.

Once the cake is completely cooled, crumble it and combine with frosting. You will need 1-2 cups of frosting,
depending on the density of the finished cake. The desired consistency is a smooth, pliable substance similar to
very soft clay.

Next, shape your cake pops. (We used an ice cream scoop for the grills and just our hands to make the
balls.) Put your shapes in the freezer for 2-3 hours or in the refrigerator overnight. After they’ve properly
chilled, dip them in chocolate and decorate!

How to make THESE cake pops:
SPORTS POPS: As I said, we employed chocolate molds for the sports balls. Be sure to dip your lollipop sticks
in chocolate before poking them into the cake balls. This ensures that they stay put. Fill the mold cavity part-
way with melted chocolate or candy melts, then tap to release air bubbles. Push your cake ball into the
chocolate, then place in the fridge or freezer until set. Repeat this process for the other side.

Note: Be sure your balls align properly when doing the second side! One of our molds offered four different
types of sports balls. I accidentally created a new sport: half soccer and half baseball!

The “tees” on the golf pops are made from Laffy Taffy candies.

GRILL CAKES: We used an ice cream scoop to get the right shape for these. After the shapes were chilled, we
dipped these in chocolate and set on three cut lollipop sticks for the grill “legs.”

Red sugar creates the look of hot coals. The grills were hand-drawn with a fine decorators tip and butter cream
icing. The burgers are sliced Tootsie Rolls. The peppers and sausages are made from jelly beans. The steaks are
a combination of Starbursts and caramel chews. We “lined” each of these with an edible pen to show the grill
marks.
