How To Make An Apple Pops Cake

The cake that I am sharing with you today is perfect for Teacher appreciation days or even birthday parties for kids.

It’s a simple frosted cake with some sprinkles and I decorated it with some apple marshmallow pop toppers.

You can make green or yellow apples too but I thought the red ones looked the best on this cake.

To make this cake, you will need the following supplies:

Big pink marshmallows
Lollipop sticks
Corn syrup
Red sanding sugar/granulated sugar
Green Twizzlers
Mini pretzels

These are the instructions:

Step 1:
Push a lollipop stick into the base of a pink marshmallow.

Step 2:
Brush some corn syrup all over the marshmallow.

You can add a few drops of water into a bowl of corn syrup to thin the consistency a bit. That helps with brushing it all over the marshmallow.

Step 3:
Fill a flat plate with red sanding sugar/granulated sugar.
Start rolling the sticky marshmallow pop until the sugar granules stick to the marshmallow.

Step 5:
Dip the top of the marshmallow pop into the plate of red sugar so that it’s fully covered too.
Push this marshmallow pop into a block of foam and keep aside.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

Happy caking everyone 🙂


  1. Such a simple, but very sweet decoration for every occasion and what I like the most – looks very very tasty and eatable!

  2. Not to be legalistic, but should they be called cake pops if there is no cake in them? There are lots of people doing the marshmallow thing now. It is very popular, one of the big trends. Do these have a name of their own, I don’t know, as I haven’t made them. I have just never seen them referred to as cake pops before.

    Love your blog! :o)

    • You are right! These are marshmallow pops and not cake pops. We have changed the title 🙂
      Cake pops or any type of pops really are trending these days coz they are so darn cute and easy to make! hehe.
