make square cake pops?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I need to make square cake pops this week. Can I just bake a cake, cut it into squares & dip it into melted candy melts? I know round cake pops are mixed w/ frosting. Was wondering if I could just cut the cake into squares and go from there. Thanks for helping!

I am not sure a cut cake would hold up being dipped in chocolate. If you want to do that I would put the little squares on a cooling rack and pour the chocolate over it. It still may not be sturdy enough to hold up when you move it. What comes to my mind is to make a cake and mix it up with the frosting and instead of making balls, push it out on a sheet and stick it into a freeze let it firm up and then cut into squares and proceed with the chocolate dipping process... hth

I would definitely do one of the ways totallycaked said! I agree it's probably not going to hold up to just cut square cakes and dip!

how about mixing the cake/frosting and push into ice cube trays to mold them

Brownie bites pan may be a nice mold for the square part too.

Why don't you follow the recipe and use a small square cookie cutter to get the shape, I know some are made with a flower cookie cutter seems like the square would have the same effect

I have some silicone ice cube trays that really are cubes and that's what I'd use.

Thanks everyone for your advice! It was so helpful. What I did was bake a cake, crumble it, mix in enough frosting so it would stick together, and then patted it into a square cake pan. After refrigerating it for a bit, I cut it into squares. Then I melted a little bit of white candy melts, dipped my sticks into it and then inserted them into the squares. After it set, I was able to dip them into my melted candy melts and let them dry. They are tricky little things to make and a bit time consuming, but they turned out beautifully! Thanks again for the helpful tips!!
