Remember that gingerbread cake I posted a couple of weeks ago? What I didn’t tell you guys in the post was that the first time I made it, it was kind of a disaster. I had accidentally set my oven temperature a bit higher and was not patient enough when I tried to transfer the cake out of the pan and it completely fell apart on me. Ugh!

I’m not a baker and this is totally the perfect example of why! Ha. Anyway, I tasted the cake and kept thinking, hey, this is really delicious despite the fact that it’s in a bunch of pieces. What better way to use up crumbled cake than in a cake pop?!

I definitely do not consider myself to be a cake pop expert, but I did my research and learned one important tip in making perfect cake pops. Many people add way too much frosting to their cake pops which results in the cake pop falling off the sticks. If you have a really moist cake, you likely won’t need much frosting. I tested this out when making these and tried rolling them into a ball without any frosting and found that they held their shape pretty decently, so I only added about 1/3 cup of frosting to these with about 3 cups of crumbled gingerbread cake.

In the directions, I placed a link to my gingerbread cake recipe if you want to use it to make the cake pops, however, if you have a favorite gingerbread cake recipe or even if you want to use a boxed mix, feel free to save yourself some time! I dipped these in some white chocolate and then covered them in festive sugar! These cake pops are so much fun and people of all ages love them!
