Birthday Cake Cake Pops with Fondant

Looking for easy cake ball pops recipes and beginner's recipes for cake balls? You may also like:

Thank you for checking out my post on birthday cake balls, birthday cake cake pop recipe, decorating cake balls with fondant. You may need to read my post on how to make cake balls if you don't already have a basic cake pops recipe of your own.

BIRTHDAY CAKE CAKE POPS SHAPE: To accomplish the double layer birthday cake pop shape, you simply put two cake balls on a stick. I rolled the cake pop dough into logs of two sizes (big and small) and then sliced them just like a roll of salimi.

Cake Pops with Fondant

BIRTHDAY CAKE CAKE POPS: Slide the sticks through the larger cake pop layer, then the smaller cake pop layer.

Layer Cake Pops with Fondant Trim

BIRTHDAY CAKE CAKE POPS FONDANT TRIM: The fondant I used was pre-rolled and pre-died fondant in a box. Roll out a small slice of fondant, then slice it into strips. Simply apply the strips to the edges of the cake pop layers. The fondant will stick just fine as long as you apply it right after you've sliced it. Letting it dry and harden will pose problems with application and sticking to your coated cake pops.

Recipes for Cake Shaped Cake Pops

BIRTHDAY CAKE CAKE POPS DECORATIONS: Get creative! I used fondant rolled into little balls, sprinkles, and fondant strips wrapped around a lolli stick to make the curly confetti.
