Any time I plan a party I strategically plan out my desserts and for my daughter Avery's Baptism Party, I decided it was time to try my hand at cake pops. I'm so glad I did because I've been getting texts since the party wanting the recipe. These Lemon Cake Pops are so simple and absolutely delicious!
What makes these Lemon Cake Pops a great dessert idea?
My favorite part about these was how simple they were to make. I didn't have to buy a special pan or machine. All I needed was my Betty Crocker Lemon cake mix, Pillsbury Vanilla Icing, Wilton Pink Candy Melts and popsicle sticks.
The key to these cake pops was the moist consistency of the cake mixed with the vanilla icing. You want it to still have a crumbly consistency, but also be able to mold into a ball. I used my ice cream scooper to create the perfect size for the cake balls. Enjoy!
