I'm a wonderful baker & a Mom. I'm a lil' obsession with chocolate, so I figured why not blog about it. I am the Owner of Jensina's Bakery at, it is my in-home cookies, cake & cake pops business. FYI: I am no longer selling cookies at the BattleGround Farmers Market, Jen's Sweets is closed. Jensina's Bakery is now OPEN.

Double broiler or microwave safe bowl
Lollipop sticks
Styrofoam boards
Edible ink pens
Cake Pop maker ($18.99 @ Fred Meyers)
2 tbsp. Ice cream scoop
Mini Spatula
Cookie sheet lines with parchment paper

Things you'll need to display your Cake Pops:
Lollipop sized baggies w/ ties

How to make Cake Pops:
Mix the cake according to instructions on the box, using the ice cream scoop, scoop cake mix into cake pop maker.
Place cake balls upside-down on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (one box of cake mix should make 45-50)
Melt chocolate in a double broiler, you won't need to temper this chocolate.
Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert halfway.)
Place them in the fridge for a few hours or in the freezer for 15 mins.
Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too. If your using sprinkles, add them on now. Place in a styrofoam boards to dry.
If your going to draw on them, wait until they are completely dry, draw on them with an edible ink pen and allow ink to dry!
