I’ll teach you how to make these sliced birthday cake cake pops in two different ways and all you’ll need are lollipop sticks or birthday candles. The first is a traditional cake pop on a stick and the other- a slice of cake with a real birthday candle you can light on top!

You’ll need:

  • Cake pop dough ready for shaping
  • Yellow, red or brown candy wafers for the “cake” color
  • White candy coating for the “frosting” layer
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • 2¼” or 2½” round fondant or cookie cutter
  • Rolling pin
  • Small, sharp, non-serrated knife
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Small wax candles
  • Waxed paper
  • Toothpicks
  • Cake pop stand or styrofoam block

Shaping the cake slices

Line your work surface with wax paper.

Step 1.

We’ll be using a 2¼ or 2½ inch fondant or cookie cutter (whichever size you have handy) to help create the shape of sliced cake.

Step 3.

Use a rolling pin to flatten and even out the top, while pushing the excess dough over the sides. Make two just like this.

Step 5.

Gently press the stack with your palm to slightly bow out the outer sides. Cut it into fourths with a sharp non-serrated knife.

Step 6.

Use your flat work surface to even out and slightly elongate the cut sides. This will help the slices appear as slices, rather than one-fourth of a circle.

Step 7.

Once you have your desirable number of pieces, refrigerate them for the amount of time it takes to melt the candy coating.

Melting the candy coating

Step 1.

Melt your chosen “cake” color in a small microwave-safe plastic bowl or cup. I’ll be making chocolate cake slices and yellow cake slices as examples today.

Step 2.

Melt white candy wafers in another small bowl.

Remove cake pieces from fridge.

Making a traditional cake pop

Here we will make cake pops the regular way, using lollipop sticks.

Step 1.

Dip ⅓ inch of a cake pop stick into candy coating and push it into the bottom of the sliced cake pieces until it’s about halfway through. Do this for all the pieces.

Step 2.

Dip each cake pop in your “cake” color. I’ll be making chocolate cake slices for my traditional cake pops. Place on a cake pop stand to let dry completely.

Step 3.

Carefully rock and dab the back portion of the cake into the white candy coating. Then, carefully dip the top. Don’t forget to add sprinkles on the top! Use a toothpick dipped in coating to create the filling line in the center.

The beauty of this tutorial is that the cake pops are more realistic-looking the messier they are!

Making sliced cake with candles

These cake pops are so fun and unconventional! We’ll be using birthday candles instead of a lollipop stick to dip these sweets.
