Cakesicles (Step by Step Pics)

Cakesicles, anyone ?? πŸ˜€ Cake Pops or Cakesicles? 
So what's the big difference between cake pops and cakesicles? Cakesicles are a twist on the traditional cake pops, a little bigger and shaped like a popsicle, or you may call it a 'cake pop popsicle'.
My kids love cakesicles and cake pops a lot than the actual frosted cakes. So whenever there are cake crumbs from the frosted cakes, I do end up making cake pops or cakesicles.  Cake pops are already on the blog. Cake Pops or Cakesicles add an extra highlight to the party theme cakes. 

These cakesicles were made when I made the vancho cake. I had both vanilla and chocolate layer of the cake crumbs, and so these cakesicles had both flavours. I did have left over dark chocolate ganache too when I prepared the chocolate whipped cream layer in the vancho cake and so used that in making these cakesicles. All that I needed extra was the melted milk chocolate compound and white chocolate compound to dip the cakesicles. Do give these a try with your kids, it's a fun project, and they will surely enjoy !!

Preparation time ~ 10 mins
Cooking time ~ 3 minutes
Serves ~ 7-8 cakesicles
Author ~ Julie
crumbled cake, both vanilla and chocolate 2 cups
dark chocolate ganache 1/3 cup
white chocolate compound 100gms
milk chocolate compound 100 gms
Sprinkles to garnish
ice cream sticks 8-10

  • Crumble the cake pieces to coarse grainy form. To this add melted dark chocolate ganache. Mix this well. 
  • Now, scoop out small portions of this mixture and make popsicle shapes. Flatten the cylindrical mix to place on the tray like the shape of popsicles. Refrigerate the prepared for half an hour to set.
  • Melt the white and dark chocolate compound separately in two bowls by double boiling method. 
  • Remove the prepared cakesicles from fridge. Dip the ice cream stick in white chocolate and insert in each of the prepared cakesicles. Now set again for 5 minutes in refrigerator.
  • Then, dip each of the prepared cakesicles in white or milk chocolate completely or pour using a spoon to cover all sides. Shake off excess and add sprinkles to decorate. Place in a tray with thermocol to stand, or place in a glass to set. If refrigerating, do only for 5 minutes, else the chocolate sweats or condenses on it (I left a little longer and so you can see condensation in pics). 

* You can prepare any box cake recipes and try these out if you don't have any cake crumbs like I tried with leftovers.
* You can use white chocolate compound alone to make cakesicles or use all kinds of chocolate compound, whichever is feasible.
* You can try different variations, you may add condensed milk instead of ganache too.
