Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

  • Easy Method: This Recipe helps you learn the art of making cake pops easily. If you follow the recipe exactly as mentioned, you will be able to achieve perfect cake pops every time you make. 
  • Double Chocolate Layer: The cake balls are dipped not just once but twice into the chocolate – white and pink chocolate. This gives it a lovely two-toned shell and a thick chocolate coating. 
  • Versatile: I have made these cake pops using the chocolate sponge and ganache; you can also use this method to make any other flavour. The technique remains the same for other types of sponge and frosting.

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Cake Crumbs: You must use cake crumbs that are fresh or at least kept well enough to have the quality. If the crumbs were not stored properly, they would be dry and hard, which would not taste good. 
  • Ganache: The ganache used here is the truffle ganache, which calls for twice the chocolate than the cream. If your frosting is a 1:1 ratio, then add extra chocolate to make it a truffle ganache. We need truffle ganache as it sets hard. 
  • Melted white chocolate: The melted chocolate is divided into two parts. One is kept white, and the other, we have added pink gel colour. The chocolate must not have any lumps, and the consistency should be smooth. It is also used as a garnish.

How To Make Cake Pops

Preparation: Collect and weigh all the ingredients as well as tools needed for the recipe. You will find the correct quantities in the recipe card below. 

Make Cake Mixture: In a bowl, take chocolate cake crumbs. The crumbs should not be too fine, just roughly crumbled. Add ganache to it and mix. You can combine using your hands, so make sure to wear gloves for hygiene purposes. 

Make Balls: Take cake pop mixture and weigh 40g. Roll the mixture in your hands to make a ball. Repeat the same for the remaining mixture. Place the balls in a lined baking tray. 

Insert Sticks: Now insert cake pop sticks (same as lollipop sticks) right at the centre of the cake pop. Before inserting the stick, dip one end into melted white chocolate so the stick gets perfectly fixed into the cake pop. 

Freeze: Put the cake pops in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. This will make the cake pops appropriately before coating them in chocolate. 

Dip The Cake Pops: Hold the cake pops upside down and dip them in melted white chocolate. Make sure the entire ball gets dipped into the chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off and set it. Once the white chocolate sets, dip it in the pink-coloured chocolate. Again, let the excess drip off and let them set completely. 

Garnish: Now that both chocolate layers have set, drizzle some white chocolate on top and decorate with an edible fondant butterfly. Spray some edible gold or silver dust to finish off.

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Cake and Ganache Ratio

Do not add more ganache than necessary; it will make the cake pops extra soft. At the same time, the mixture should not be dry as then the cake pops won’t hold shape. 

Do Not Over Freeze Cake Pops

When the sticks are inserted and the cake pops are kept in the refrigerator, do not keep them in the fridge for too long. This is because, when taken out, they will have condensation, and when dipped in chocolate, the water might try to escape, leading to either cracks or seized chocolate.

How To Store Cake Pops

Cover the cake pops with either aluminium wraps or plastic film to avoid moisture and dust contact. 

These cake pops must be stored in the refrigerator and consumed in 3-4 days.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I use any other sponge in place of a chocolate sponge? 

Yes, in case you have vanilla or red velvet cake leftovers, then you can use them as well. 

Is it necessary to dip in two coloured chocolates? 

No, you do not need to dip in two colours. That is for the appearance. However, I would recommend dipping the cake pop twice, be it in the same chocolate. 

Can I use any other frosting than ganache? 

Although ganache is the most sought-after frosting to be used, you can use any buttercream as well.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
