How to Make Sugar Plum Cakesicles

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees 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 to cool 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, make 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 on 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!
