We really don’t need a holiday as an excuse to bake. But since it is Easter time, we thought we would get creative by making a recipe based on a popular sweet treat found at both Disney World and Disneyland. Join us as we walk you through how to Make Easter Egg Cake Pops With A Disney Spin.#waltexpress #disneyinspiredbaking #disneyeastercakepops easter egg cake pops

Easter Egg Cake Pops with a Disney Spin

Join us on another Disney inspired baking adventure, just in time for the Easter holiday!

Allergy Friendly

If you have a food allergy, then you probably know finding sweet treats that are gluten free while at a Disney Park can be a challenge. Now, there are some out there to be found but not quite as many as we would like. So, this specific recipe is geared toward those of us with a gluten allergy. BUT don’t worry, you can still use this same recipe using regular ingredients.

What You Will Need

We need to get all of our ingredients together before we start. Grab a pen and paper or just screen shot this section of the blog and head on out to the grocery store. I use both Betty Crocker and Pillsbury products. I shop by sale or whichever is available at the time. There are several other brands available that will work just the same.

Cake Pops

  • 1 Box – Gluten Free Cake Mix – (Sub for Regular if desired)
  • 2 (16oz)- containers of Gluten Free Frosting (Sub for Regular if desired)
  • 10 to 12 Ounces gluten free semi-sweet baking chocolate

Decorating

  • Food Coloring 
  • 1 pack – Lollipop Sticks – (optional) 
  • Sprinkles, Decorative Sugars, Marshmallows, Mike & Ike Candies (or jellybeans), decorative eyes, gels, and any other items for decorating you desire.

Instructions

First, prepare the cake mix according to the package directions. I just used a square cake pan. You can use any size pan you would like. I don’t suggest a cupcake pan unless that is the only one you have available. Only because we will just be crumbling up the cake in the next steps.

While the cake is baking, go ahead and prepare your decorations. Mix up different color frostings. Place marshmallows and candies in a bowl for easy access and so you don’t get frosting all over the bag while decorating.

Prep 

Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 30 minutes. Place the pan on a counter or cooling rack. You don’t want to leave it on top of the warm oven. While the cake is cooling line two baking sheets with parchment paper. You will need to place these in the freezer later so use this time to make sure there is space in the freezer for the pans to sit flat.

Next Steps

Once the cake has cooled, in a large bowl crumble the cake with your fingers.  Add half a can of the frosting and press the cake together using a spoon. You will want to add more frosting as necessary until the mixture is smooth.

Shape the mixture into egg shaped pieces. You can make other shapes or just round as well. Place each shaped piece onto the baking sheets you prepared earlier. Once you have shaped all of your cake mixture place your pans in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. Or up to a few hours if you plan to decorate later.

Using Lollipop Sticks

If you are planning to use the lollipop sticks you will need to prepare them before you begin decorating. First, you will need another cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. In a microwave safe bowl, melt 10 ounces of the semi-sweet chocolate on high for 30 seconds at a time. Stirring in between until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Stick the tip of one side of the lollipop sticks into the melted chocolate. Place them on the lined cookie sheet and freeze for one minute until the chocolate is set. If you are not using lollipop sticks just leave each egg on the cookie sheet.

Let’s Decorate

Now, for the fun and messy part! Decorating. I don’t know about you, but I like recipes that are fun and easy. To decorate, I just simply frost each egg and then used the gels, candies and marshmallows to create eggs that represent some of my favorite Disney characters. 

Don’t be afraid to get creative! Trust me, unless you are a professional chef who has been trained, they are likely not going to be perfect. That is ok, just go with it have fun and let the kiddos make a mess all while you create some Easter memories. Place any left over cake pop eggs in an air tight container and store in the freezer.

Easter Egg Cake Pops With A Disney Spin are such a cute way to incorporate a little Disney into your Easter holidays! If you enjoyed this recipe you may want to also want to give our Dole Whip Cupcakes a try!

I am wife and stepmom to one a daughter who is now 18. My husband and I have been married for 13 years. I have always been a Disney fanatic and when I got married, my husband at first thought I was crazy, but he quickly grew to love Disney just as much if not more than me. I work as a full-time customer representative for a small family owned metal shop, but my true passion is being a Disney travel agent. My Love for Disney I believe started when my parents took me to Walt Disney World for the first time at 6 months old. When I am not at Disney I am thinking about Disney or planning another trip! I truly enjoy helping others and love the excitement I get to be a part of when helping others plan a magical vacation.
