If you have ever made cake pops from scratch, I’m certain you will understand when I say it’s not as easy as it looks! You have to bake a cake, then crumble it up, then mix in icing. The process is fun for kids, but time consuming for busy parents. So today I have a short-cut for you! Make Cake Pops in literally seconds using doughnut holes! Brilliant, right?!
To get started, you will need just a few things.
INGREDIENTS for DIY DOUGHNUT HOLE CAKE POPS:
cake pop sticks
sprinkles and a small bowl for the sprinkles
How to Make Doughnut Hole Cake Pops:
Pop a doughnut hole onto a Cake Pop stick. It helps to use a little icing on the stick before you insert it into your doughnut hole. To do this, simply dab the stick in a little bit of icing then press it into the doughnut hole.
Spread icing on the doughnut hole! It looks nice (and food blogs today would agree) if you leave a little of the cake showing. This new “unfrosted” look is kind of the thing now! Lucky for us busy parents!
Pour some sprinkles in a little bowl and then dip the Cake Pop icing into the sprinkles, pressing firmly so they stick!
You are now all set! See how easy that was? These would be so easy to make for a party or fun for a little after school treat!
