Fourth of July is always a fun time to try new recipes and serve up yummy treats at a family BBQ! I’ve had a silicone star mold in my cabinet for a couple years now and when thinking of something to make for this 4th of July, I knew I had to finally take it out and make something in it!
Cake pops are so fun and easy to eat. Especially at a BBQ where you are running around and having outdoor fun. No need for a plate or a fork! Since it’s Summer, you can experiment with fresh, tropical cake flavors. I used orange extract in a simple vanilla cake recipe because it reminded me of a Dreamsicle!
FUN FACT: Cake pops haven’t been around that long. There were created in 2008 by a baker in Georgia and are traditionally made by mixing cake crumbs and frosting together to form a ball, then dipped in a hard shell.
