Why Make This Recipe?
You should totally make this recipe with your family because it's:
- Easy to make
- Budget friendly
- and bottom line, delicious!
What You'll Need
- All-Purpose flour, spooned and leveled with a knife - this is key!
- Baking powder - make sure it hasn't expired
- Kosher or sea salt - remember that table salt is only for the table. If you are using salted butter, omit the additional salt.
- Unsalted butter - you can use salted, just do not add the extra salt.
- Candy melts - make sure that you use new candy melts and not the ones that have been sitting in your pantry. If they are old, they won't melt properly.
- Stand mixer or handheld.
- 9 x 13"-inch pan
- Cakesicle/popsicle mold - I highly recommend silicone.
- Popsicle sticks - you can use craft sticks as well.
- Small paintbrush - if you are using the edible glitter, this is when you will use the paintbrush.

- Medium sized bowl
- large mixing bowl
- handheld electric mixer or stand mixer
- 9 x 13" inch pan
- non-stick cooking spray
- Measuring cups
- small bowls
- cakesicle/popsicle mold
- popsicle sticks
- small paintbrush
- ribbon optional
- 2 ½ cups All-Purpose flour spooned and leveled with a knife
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick) softened to room temperature
- 1 cup white granulated sugar
- 3 large eggs
- ⅛ cup vegetable or canola oil
- 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup 2% milk
- container of frosting – I used Strawberry with this recipe
- candy melts – yellow, pink, green, blue, and purple
- rainbow sprinkles
- edible dust
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9 x 13” inch pan by spraying just the bottom only with your favorite non-stick cooking spray and setting it aside. Lay out the butter so it can start to soften.
- Either make the cake according to the directions on the back of the cake mix or make the cake as directed below.
- In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, kosher salt, and baking powder and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and white granulated sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Approximately 5minutes.
- Incorporate the eggs, one at a time. Next, add the vanilla extract and then the vegetable oil.
- Add in half of the dry ingredients and one ½ cup of the milk and combine just until you no longer see the flour. Repeat the process. Then scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure all of the flour is incorporated. Then turn the mixer on high and mix together for two minutes.
- Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan.
- Bake 30 – 35 minutes or until a cake tester or toothpick pressed in the middle of the cake comes out with just crumbs on it. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool.
- Once the cake has cooled, add the cake into a large bowl with ⅓ cup of prepared frosting. Stir until you get a truffle-like texture. You may need to add more frosting to get to this point. Then set the bowl aside.
- Decide on what color popsicles you are going to make first then melt the candy wafers according to the instructions on the package.
- Spread one tablespoon of the melted candy wafers into each cavity. Using a spoon or paintbrush, spread the melted chocolate evenly on the sides and bottoms of the mold.
- Then insert a popsicle stick into the opening at the bottom of the mold. Place the mold into the freezer for five minutes. Next, add one tablespoon of the cake mixture into the mold and spread it evenly with your fingers. Top with another tablespoon of melted chocolate.
- Place back into the freezer for a few minutes to allow it to harden. Unmold and finish decorating with more melted chocolate or sprinkles.
