How to make cakesicles or cake pops:


Crumble the piece of cake (muffins, sobaos, buns …) in a bowl and add the tablespoons of cream cheese Philadelphia type and scoops of Orange marmalade. Do not add them all at once, add little by little until you get a manageable dough that is not excessively sticky. You may need to add more tablespoons of cheese and orange marmalade or less, it will depend on your piece of cake.

To make Oreo cakesicles, we recommend preparing this Oreo cake.

Trick: You can make the flavored cakesicles using other jams such as strawberries, blackberries or apricots. Or, how about with cocoa and hazelnut spread?

Chop the white chocolate and melt it in the microwave in several batches to avoid burning. In this video we explain the most appropriate procedure with dark chocolate, but the same step by step works with white chocolate.


Divide the melted chocolate into two different containers and dye with dyes. We have put pink dye on one part and yellow dye on the other, but you can dye them with other colors if you wish. Unmold the cakesicles carefully and place them one by one in the dyed chocolate. Being frozen, they will dry out right away. Put the remaining chocolate in a pastry bag and decorate with small strands of chocolate. Sprinkle the sprinkles immediately so that the chocolate does not dry out and stick together.

Trick: Let the cakesicles or cake pops dry in a cork lined with plastic wrap so that both sides are even.
