Prep Time: 60 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients Red Velvet Cake Pops Recipe:

2 ½ cups Flour
1 TBSP Cocoa Powder
1 ½ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Salt
12 TBSP Butter, room temperature
¼ cup Shortening, softened
1 cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 TBSP Red Velvet Extract
1 TBSP Red Gel Food Coloring
1 cup Buttermilk
1 cup Chocolate Frosting
24 Cake Pop Sticks

Ingredients White Chocolate Coating:

12 oz White Melting Wafers

Ingredients Royal Icing:

2 Egg Whites
¼ tsp Cream of Tartar
1 tsp Almond Extract
2 cups Confectioners Sugar
Blue Gel Food Coloring


• Preheat oven to 350°.
• Spray a jelly roll pan (12½” x 17½” x1″) with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
• Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl; set aside.
• Using an electric mixer, beat together butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.
• Add the eggs, vanilla, red velvet extract and red gel food coloring; mixed well.
• Alternate adding half the flour mixture and buttermilk to the batter until completely combined.
• Spread the batter over the jelly roll pan, and bake for 20-22 minutes at 350° or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
• Allow the cake to cool completely.
• Spoon the cooled cake into a large bowl, add the chocolate frosting and mix well until you can form a ball with this mixture. You want your cake pops to be very moist and soft.
• Roll 24 cake balls; set aside.
• Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
• Using a double boiler, or a microwave melt the white melting wafers.
• Dip the tip of the cake pop stick into the melted white chocolate then directly into one end of the cake ball.
• Allow to cool.
• Dip the entire cake ball into the melted white chocolate and coat the entire cake ball. Place the coated ball on the parchment lined cookie sheet, and allow to dry.
• Make the royal frosting:
• In a large bowl, combine the egg whites, cream of tartar, almond extract, confectioners sugar and blue gel food coloring with a wooden spoon until smooth.
• Stripe the dry cake pops with royal icing using a #1 round piping tip to form lines. Do not overfill your piping bag. Allow the royal icing to fall naturally.
• Allow to dry before serving.

• Makes 24 servings Red Velvet Cake Pops

Here are a few tools used to make these cake pops:

#1 Piping Tip Some people prefer a slightly thicker line, so use a 1.5 Piping Tip A more economical solution, if you plan on decorating cakes, cupcakes and cookies, is a Tips Kit.
• A Pastry Bag that is plastic, or if you prefer, Disposable Pastry Bags
Cake Pop Sticks
• And while I didn’t mention it in the post, if you are transporting the cake pops – for say a class birthday party for children, or a bake sale, wrap your cake pops.
