Where’d they come from?

Believe it or not, the idea of cake pops goes way back – people were turning cake scraps into little balls of deliciousness back in the 1700s! But cake pops really took off in the early 2000s thanks to a baker named Angie Dudley (aka Bakerella). Now they’re everywhere, from fancy bakeries to your own kitchen.

The final step?

Stand your cake pops upright in some styrofoam or a cake pop stand and let them harden completely.

Try different cake flavors, frosting colors, and candy melts! The possibilities are endless.
