How to Make Cake Pops with a Mold

Cakes are a great idea for any occasion, but it might be tough to distribute them to everyone. As a convenient manner of getting a single serving, cupcakes can also be a little unwieldy at times. Cake pops are now a cinch to make thanks to the emergence of silicone molds in the food industry.

If you follow a few basic instructions, you can easily manufacture gorgeous cake pops using a mold unit, as opposed to the more difficult method of manufacturing them by hand. The process of making cake pops in a mold can now begin!

Step #1. Prepare Necessary Ingredients

For the Cake Pop Batter:

  • 1 egg
  • 5 oz. (144 g) vanilla cake mix (from a box)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. vegetable oil

For the Coating:

  • 200 g chocolate
  • Sprinkles, to decorate


  • Hand mixer
  • Cake pop silicone mold
  • Treat sticks
  • Piping bag
  • Cake pop stand

This recipe utilizes 1/3 of a cake mix to produce fewer cake pops. If you use the whole box, make the batter as directed, fill the mold, and bake for roughly 60 cake pops.

Step #2. Whisk Together the Batter Ingredients Properly

The oven should be preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit before you begin baking. In a large bowl, combine all of the cake pop batter ingredients and stir to combine.

Step #3. Oil the Cake Pop Mold

In order to prevent the cake pops from sticking to each other, lightly grease the mold’s interior (top and bottom piece). Having them in place now will make it easier to get rid of them afterwards. Put the bottom of the mold on a baking sheet and bake according to the package directions.

Step #4. Add Batter to Cake Pop Mold Cavities

To prevent the cake pops from falling flat when baking, leave about 1 millimeter between the batter’s surface and the mold’s rim when filling the mold’s cavities with batter. Cover with the top mold, ensuring that all of the mold’s components are firmly pressed together.

Step #5. Bake the Cake Pops in the Oven

Bake for about 20 minutes in the preheated oven. To tell if the cake pops are done, insert a toothpick into a hole in the mold. Checking within the mold is not necessary. After 5 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool. Remove the cake balls from the silicone mold after 5 to 10 minutes of cooling time.

Step #6. Insert Treat Sticks into Cake Pops

Add a small amount of melted chocolate to the mixture. Melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the tops of the cake pops. Insert it inside the cake pop. It’s that simple. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to help them stick together.

Step #7. Coat & Decorate the Cake Pops

You can use a microwave to melt the chocolate for the coating, mixing every 30 seconds to avoid overcooking. Alternatively, you can use a double boiler by placing a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water).

Add sprinkles to the cake pops while they are still moist, then dip them into the melted chocolate. To firm the coating, leave the cake pops at room temperature in a stand (we used a hole-punched egg carton as a stand).

Step #8. Serve the Pop & Enjoy Together

Baking becomes a lot more fun when you learn how to use these molds. To achieve consistently flawless results, lightly grease the silicone molds before filling with batter and ensuring that they are tightly fitting during baking.

If not overfilled, your cake dollops will bake into beautiful spheres ready to be dipped. If cake bakes between the mold cavities, don’t worry; it’s easy to remove with a little knife once the cake pops have chilled.

Butter pecan cake with vanilla icing is popular. Rich chocolate can be dipped in dark chocolate or combined with coconut to make German chocolate cake. Strawberry, vanilla, and lemon are delightful, as are red velvet or yellow cakes with icings and sprinkles.
