Cake pops are one of my favorite things especially when attending an event. I decided for my 5 Year Glamiversary party I would try my hand at making some instead of a traditional decorated cake. This party was for a small group of family and friends to celebrate them for supporting Naturally Glam from Day 1. Having everything be single-serve was one of the goals I had, and cake pops are the best single serve dessert. Since I knew some of my guests were vegan, I decided to make these easy vegan cake pops so no one would feel left out.
These vegan cake pops took about an hour total to make, not included the cool time for the cake itself. You could easily just use eggs if it’s not a deal breaker for them to be vegan. I chose vanilla everything but you could use any cake mix flavor or candy coating flavor you like. As far as the decorations go for your cake pops, the possibilities are endless. I found lots of colored shimmer sugar at Food Lion and Party City, sprinkles of all colors, mini pearls, and even food color spray. So no matter the theme of your party, or if you’re just making these for the fam, you can plenty of options.
I decided to use paper straws instead of cake pop sticks because they were so easy to fine. I already had the polka dot paper straws that I’d picked up from the ‘dollar trap’ at Target, and I found the striped paper straws at Dollar Tree. These were perfect because they were right on theme with the Naturally Glam visual branding, and the red shimmer sugar atop the white candy coating just make them perfect for my party.
Now that I know how easy and simple it is to make these, I will definitely be trying this out again. If you like cake pops, try this recipe and to make them at home.
