Cake Pops to Make for Any Party!

Cake pops may look complicated, but they're actually really easy to make at home. We've got a GREAT TUTORIAL FOR CAKE POPS, and once you read through and feel better about the whole idea, we really think you should give them a try.

Over the past few years, cake pops have taken the party world by storm. While there are some creative confectioners, like Bakerella, who go all out with their cake pop designs, we like to keep it simple. A sweet treat worthy of celebrating, we've rounded up a few of our favorite cake pop recipes on Celebrations.com to show you just how easy it is to mix in a few cake pops into your next party.


  • Cake pops are technically a no-bake treat - you make them from a premade cake mixed with frosting. You can also make them from crushed cookies and cream cheese for a pop that's more cheesecake like. Check out our oreo cake pop recipe for an even more decadent dessert.

  • A basic chocolate cake ball gets all dressed up with a simple mold from My Little Cupcake. Mini cupcake bites that back an extremely decadent taste, these little molds make it easy to create baked goodies that are sure to impress.

  • Crushed candy is an easy way to derss up cake pops, but did you know you can actually write and draw on cake pops, too? After they're dipped in chocolate, cake pops make for a great canvas. In honor of Thanksgiving, we adorned our heart shaped ones with some blessings we're grateful for.

  • Get creative with your cake pop or cake ball flavor combinations. No one says your mixes have to be made with chocolate or vanilla cake only. We're big fans of this pistachio cake pop recipe from contributor Meredith Santucci.

  • Here at Celebrations.com, we've turned to the classic s'more to inspire just about any dessert recipe we can. These chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallow cake poppers are one of the most celebrated desserts we've ever made and are perfect for any party or holiday celebration. Turn them into cake pops simply by skewering them with a stick.

  • The first of two boozie cake pop ideas in this gallery, Mark Addison's drunken Irish cake pops were first made for a St. Patrick's Day party. We love how creative Mark got with his cake pops' chocolate coating. You don't have to be a baking pro to create some really gorgeous cake pops! 

  • The second of our spiked cake pops, these lemon chiffon treats are a little lighter and less heavy on the chocolate coating, but still super delicious. When spiking your cake pops, make sure you follow our how-to for incorporating liquour into the mix and avoid a cake mixture that's too moist!

  • Dress up any cake pop for any occasion with a little color coordinating! While Meaghan glammed up these cake pops for Christmas, you can use her technique of dipping chocolate coated cake pops into edible glitter for extra pizzazz.
