Cake Pop Coating:

  1. Preheat and Mix:
    • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in vanilla, egg, and salt.
  2. Dry Ingredients:
    • Sift flour and baking powder. Gradually add to the wet mix alternately with milk.
  3. Coloring:
    • Divide the batter and color each part with different rainbow food coloring.
  4. Bake:
    • Pour the colored batter into molds and bake for 20 minutes or until done.
  5. Prepare Coating:
    • Melt white chocolate chips with whipping cream.
  6. Assemble:
    • Insert sticks into the cake balls, dip into melted chocolate, and then into sprinkles.


  • Use room temperature ingredients for a smoother batter.
  • For a vibrant effect, use gel-based food coloring.
  • Chill the cake pops before dipping to help the coating set quickly.


  1. Can I use regular liquid food coloring instead of gel-based? While you can use liquid food coloring, gel-based coloring tends to produce more vibrant hues without altering the consistency of the batter.
  2. How far in advance can I make these cake pops? You can make the cake pops a day in advance and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. However, for the freshest taste and texture, it’s best to enjoy them within 1-2 days.
