DIY Tie Dye Cake Pops


Makes: 40 Cake Pops


White Cake
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 large egg whites (3/4 cup)
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

An alternative is to use Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix for a simpler process.

Cake Pop mold
Food Coloring
Cooking Spray


Set a rack at the middle level of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar for about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt.
Set aside.
Combine egg whites, milk and vanilla extract.
Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to butter mixture then add half the milk mixture. Continue to alternate beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Scrape bowl and beater often.

Separate batter into four small bowls and apply food coloring. (I used Wilton Color Right’s Yellow, Blue, Red and Green).

Pour and layer a teaspoon of each color batter into prepared cake pop mold. (make sure you don’t mix the colors) prepared cake pop mold.




Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center emerges clean.
Let cool in cake pop mold on a rack for 5 minutes.

Decorating the Cake Pops

Lollipop Sticks 4″
1-2 Wilton Candy Melts 12 oz. bags
Toppings of your choice

Place your candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power.
Stir for a couple minutes, then check the temperature on your candy melts.
Sometimes candy melts do not cooperate the way we want them to so don’t get discouraged.
Once ready, dip the tip of the popsicle stick in the melted chocolate and place into the center of the cake ball.


Let cool, then dip the cake pop into the melted candy.
Tip: you can always add a little oil to the candy melts so it takes longer to harden.

Too add texture you can use a different candy melt color and a piping bags, cut a little whole and strike each pop


To add sprinkles, make sure to add them before the chocolate sets.

Lastly, serve and enjoy!
