Cakepops the perfect little bite of cake delivered on a stick, making them easy to enjoy at a party setting. Rich chocolate cake is crumbled then mixed with tart mascarpone to form a sort of dough. This 'dough' is then rolled into bite-sized balls. These cake balls are set on a stick then dipped in a layer of dark chocolate and drizzled with milk chocolate. The contrast in textures between the crisp dark chocolate and the tender cake it envelops make these the perfect little bite.


  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
  • 120 grams dark chocolate
  • 80 grams milk chocolate
  • lollipop (sticks)
  • A long piece of styrofoam (for pop cake skewing and cooling purposes)


  1. Mix the sifted cocoa and the flour while preparing the yogurt cake.
  2. Once the cake is cooked and completely cool, crumble finely in a bowl. Add the mascarpone and mix well to obtain a smooth dough forming a ball. Take small amounts of dough and shape them into balls the size of a large walnut. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
  3. Melt 80 grams of dark chocolate in a double boiler. Chop the remaining 40 grams of chocolate and place in a bowl. Once the chocolate is melted, pour on top of the chopped chocolate in the bowl and mix until smooth.
  4. Dip the end of a lollipop stick in the chocolate and then stick into a dough ball (a little less than half way, so that the ball doesn't break in two). Proceed in a similar way with all the cake balls. Then completely dip each ball into the melted chocolate and stick the pop cake in the styrofoam.
  5. Melt the milk chocolate in the same way (2/3 to melt and 1/3 into small pieces in a bowl). Dip a fork in the milk chocolate and run each pop cake under it to draw fine lines.
  6. If you want soft pop cakes, let them cool at room temperature. If too warm, harden the pop cakes in the refrigerator.

This is such a fun dessert. It gets a little messy crumbling the cake and forming the balls, so I always get some younger family members to help in the kitchen.
