Beach Ball Cake Pops
Summer is officially here and I hope you guys will have the chance to do something fun, fun, fun!
These beach ball cake pops are a great way to get in the right mindset. I made them a while ago for Target’s blog (A Bullseye View) at the time, but it appears the instructions have since been removed in their site reorganization. So I thought I would update this post I made back then to include the complete how-to instructions. Now they‘ll be handy here if you want to give these cute pops a go.
They are so sweet and simple, and have such strong and graphic visual appeal. They just sing summer. And sunshine. And they make me smile. And they make me wish I was at the pool right now. P.S., if you love summer, you might like these Sunshine Cake Pops, too.
Now, let’s make some beach balls. The full instructions are at the end of this post, but first, here’s a photo play-by-play.
To make cake pops, start with crumbled cake and then mix it with frosting. Easy and so tasty.
The texture will be something like this. You can scoop amounts of the the cake and frosting mixture for even size balls.
And then just roll them by hand. If your cake crumbs are fine, you’ll get rounder, smoother balls which will make for smoother pops when dipped.
This is a good consistency of cake to frosting. The mixture should be moist but shouldn’t feel wet. Once they are scooped you can easily roll them into a smooth ball.
