Donut Hole Cake Pops

Remember the other day when I shared my pink and gold graduation party and said that the cake pops weren’t actually cake pops at all? Well, I’m sharing my super-duper secret for these over at Buttercream Bakehouse today!

This is a genius way to make cake pops -- no mess, no fuss, and most importantly, no baking!! I can't believe I never thought of this before.

Cake pops are so much fun to eat, but they’re a giant pain in the neck to make. So as much as I love them, I never, ever make them. Until I thought of the most brilliant shortcut.

A donut hole. Oh heck yes.

I have the whole tutorial over at Buttercream Bakehouse, so be sure to go check it out!

    Hi Jenn – May I repost this guest post you did for Buttercream? I would like to do cake pops again…I tried it and called it “Cake Pops, Seriously?” because mine were a disaster. Thanks for sharing. Best, Susan
