What are Cakesicles?


Cakesicles are frozen treats that are usually made from cake.

The first cakesicle was created in 1921 by a woman named Mrs. Tyson, who was looking for an alternative to ice cream after the death of her husband. She used cake scraps and frosting to create something that resembled a popsicle.

Cakesicles are an easy and delicious way to enjoy the flavors of cake and frosting. This is a variation on the ice cream popsicle. They can be made with any flavor cake and frosting, so feel free to experiment with different combinations of flavors.

The fun thing about cakesicles is you can make them for the holidays, birthdays or special occasions. All you have to do is change out the decorations you put on them. For birthday parties you will find they are a welcome treat by all that attend.

Are These Cakesicles Hard to Make?

No, they actually are easy to make.

First, you will have to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a cupcake pan with liners.

Using a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, milk, butter, and eggs until combined and smooth.

Fill the cupcake liners ¾ way full. Bake in the oven for 21 minutes. Allow cooling completely.

Once the cupcakes have cooled, remove them from their cupcake liners and crumble them into a large mixing bowl.

Making the cakesicle cake dough directions :

Once all the cupcakes have been crumbles into a moist sand-like texture, scoop in about ¼ – ½ C of the chocolate frosting. Using either your hands or a rubber spatula, mix the frosting into the crumbs until a dough-like mixture forms.

Decorating directions:

Using the remaining white chocolate in the wafer bags, pour into a large bowl. Using a microwave, melt the white chocolate in 30-second increments, mixing after each time to ensure smooth melted white chocolate.

Once the white chocolate is melted, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the melted white chocolate into the cakesicle molds. Move the cakesicle mold around to ensure that the sides are coated in the white chocolate.

Carefully push the popsicle stick into the bottom of the cakesicle mold. Place the mold into the fridge for about 10 minutes. Once the white chocolate is set, remove it from the fridge.

Take about 1-2 tbsp of the cake mixture and carefully press into the mold, making sure the side of the chocolate does not break. Remelt the white chocolate used to coat the cakesicle mold.

Once the white chocolate is remelted, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the white chocolate onto the top of the cake mixture into the mold. Place mold back into the fridge for another 30 minutes.

Carefully remove the cakesicle from the mold. Place onto the wire rack. Repeat the steps with the remaining cake dough. Using the remaining melted chocolate, spoon it into a piping bag.

Decorating the cakesicle:

Cut the tip off the piping bag. Drizzle lines of white chocolate onto the cakesicles. Sprinkle some of the frozen sprinkles onto the white chocolate lines. Pipe some chocolate onto the bottom of the snowflakes and place it randomly onto the cakesicles. Allow the chocolate to set before enjoying it!
