Do you love cake pops? These sweet treats on a stick are very easy to make, especially if you have a mould ready and waiting. We’ll show you exactly how to use cake pop moulds so the next party you throw is that little bit sweeter.

How to Use Cake Pop Moulds?

Before we teach you how to use cake pop moulds, you’ll need to choose which flavour of cake you want – choose a standard cake recipe over something more sticky (like brownies).


For a chocolatey cake pop we recommend:

1 box Betty Crocker™ Devil's Food Cake Mix

120 ml vegetable oil (6tbsp)

3 medium free-range eggs

230 ml water

For a vanilla-flavoured cake pop we recommend:

1 box Betty Crocker™ Vanilla Cake Mix

120 ml vegetable oil (6tbsp)

3 medium free-range eggs

230 ml water


  • Preheat your oven to the temperature recommended on the back of the box. Then mix all the ingredients together until you have a smooth batter.
  • Take your cake pop mould – these are usually silicone – and grease it. For silicone moulds, oil is the best ingredient to use for greasing. Choose for a light flavour oil, like sunflower or vegetable. Use a spray or a silicone brush to coat the moulds.
  • Place your mould on a baking tray, then use a small spoon (measuring spoons work well for this) or a piping bag, to fill your moulds. The moulds should be almost full, but not quite – leave 1-2 mm between your batter and the top of the mould – this will stop your mix from overflowing.
  • Cover your bottom mould with your top mould, and make sure everything is locked or fitted into place.
  • Place the baking tray and the mould into the preheated oven. Bake for about 20 minutes. When the 20 minutes are up, insert a toothpick into the hole at the top of the mould to check that your cake pops are done. Then open the mould and let your cakes cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Melt some chocolate (whichever kind you like!) in a bowl over some simmering water.
  • While your chocolate is melting, insert your treat stick into your first cake pop, then coat your pop in the chocolate. If you want to decorate your pop with sprinkles, make sure you do it while the chocolate is still wet. Repeat this with every pop.
  • Stand your pops up, usually a milk carton with punched holes in works best, then pop them in the fridge to cool and bind for 30 minutes.

You’re done! All you need to do now is enjoy your cake pop treats!
