Equipment Needed

hand mixer Hand Mixer

microwave Microwave
sheet pan Sheet Pan
parchment paper Parchment Paper
candy sticks Candy Sticks
styrofoam Styrofoam

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).


To make the cake, spray a 12” (32 cm) springform pan with nonstick spray.


Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into medium sized bowl. Set aside.


Using a hand mixer beat sugar and eggs in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add butter to egg mixture and beat until blended. Add milk and vanilla; beat to blend.


Add dry ingredients and beat to combine. Transfer batter to prepared pan.


Bake for 40 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool cake completely in pan on rack.


To make the frosting, using a hand mixer beat together all the ingredients until light and fluffy - about 3 minutes.


Once the cake has cooled, cut it in half and use your hands to break it up into a large bowl. You want it to have a crumb consistency. Add 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of frosting and mix until. combined. It should hold into the shape of a ball if pressed together. If it is too crumbly, add a. bit more frosting.


Take 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of the cake mixture and roll it into a ball in the palm of your hands. Take two fingers and slightly squeeze one end of the ball to form an egg shape.


Melt 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the white creme chips in microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove and stir to combine.


Dip the tip of each candy stick into the melted chocolate and insert into the bottom of the cake egg pops. Lay these on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and freeze for 1 hour.


While the cake pops freeze, poke holes in the styrofoam - this will be used to hold the cake pops while the chocolate dries.


Just before you remove the cake pops from the freezer, melt the remaining white creme chips in the microwave on high for 1 minute in a 2 cup (500 mL) glass measuring cup. If you are colouring the white creme, divide the melted chocolate into 4 bowls. Add a few drops of each colour into each bowl, and mix to combine.


Dip each cake pop into the melted chocolate and evenly scatter them with sprinkles. Pop them into the holes in the styrofoam and let set, about 30 minutes.
