Star Trek: Prodigy Galaxy Cake Pops
Ingredients and Supplies:
- 9-inch round vanilla cake
- 3-5 tbsp. of vanilla frosting
- Black, blue, and pink candy melts
- Silver and gold sprinkles
- Small cookie dough scoop
- 8-inch candy treat sticks
- Cake pop stand
- Baking sheet
- Break apart a 9-inch vanilla cake into fine, even crumbles.
- Add a tablespoon of frosting at a time and use a hand mixer to combine until the mixture clumps and sticks together easily. Note – you may not need to add all of the frosting based on how moist the cake is.
- For equal-sized cake pops, use a cookie dough scoop (or a tablespoon) to form equal amounts of cake into small, rolled balls. (Approx. two scoops or tablespoons per ball.)
- Place your rolled cake balls on a baking sheet and place in the refrigerator to chill for a minimum of 20 minutes.
- Warm a small amount of candy melts (any color) according to the package instructions. Then dip a candy treat stick into the melted candy and insert it into the center of a chilled cake pop.
- Place the cake pops back into the refrigerator to chill for another 5-10 minutes.
- Warm your remaining black, blue, and pink candy melts in separate containers according to the package instructions.
- Once your cake pops have properly chilled, spoon melted blue and pink candy on top of the melted black candy. Do not mix together.
- Dip a chilled cake pop into the melted candy and submerge it completely, then twist it slowly as you raise it out of the melted candy to give it a marbled look.
- While holding the cake pop horizontally, let all excess candy drip off. To help in this process, hold the cake pop stick in one hand and gently tap that hand with your other hand. Do not shake the cake pop or hold it upside down.
- While the candy coating is still wet, add a few silver and gold sprinkles to the cake pop.
- Place the cake pop in the cake pop stand to fully dry.
- Repeat the dipping process for all of the cake pops, adding additional lines of blue and pink candy melts to the black candy melt container, as needed.
