Hi friends! I am back with another cakesicle tutorial, but I am writing about baseball cakesicles just in time for the MLB Opening Day. They are perfect for baseball-themed parties, baseball favors, baseball game treats, and many more! I made these for my nephew’s birthday, who loves baseball! They are relatively easy with some basic cakesicle knowledge. I love this particular mold because they are rounded so they are more realistic! Please check the blog post for a supply list, instructions, and a short video! For more cakesicles tutorials, click here.
Baseball Cakesicles Tutorial
What types of chocolate do I use?
Now it is easy to find chocolate wafer melts at stores. My favorite is Ghirardelli, but they only have white and dark chocolate wafers. I use them as a base and purchase colored chocolate wafers such as Sweet Tooth Fairy or Sweet Shop Baking for secondary colors. They can be found at Michaels, Joanns, and Walmart. I also like Fancy Sprinkles Easy Candy, but you will have to order online (Code: 15CAKEINSPO) or from Amazon.
Supplies Needed To Make Baseball Cakesicles
- Cake Mix or Cake Scraps of your favorite flavor
- Some Buttercream
- Hallie Cakesicle Mold (15CAKEINSPO for a discount) (Can be found on Amazon)
- White Coating Chocolate (Chocolate Wafers) (See above to find white chocolate wafers at local stores)
- Red Chocolate Wafers (Can be found at Michaels, Joanns, or Walmart)
- Popsicle Sticks (To make them fancier, I use reusable acrylic cakesicle sticks from Occasional Papercuts.)
- Small Offset Spatula
- Tipless Piping Bags
- Mix cake scraps with some buttercream. Usually, a tiny bit will do it. Stop when the mix is not dry anymore.
- Melt the white chocolate following the instructions. I usually melt at 30-second intervals until it is melted. Do not let the chocolate be too hot.
- Apply the chocolate to the entire mold cavity using a tipless piping bag.
- Insert the popsicle sticks only in the slits. Do not push all through just yet. This is to help with cracking.
- Put the mold in the fridge to harden the chocolate quickly for a few minutes to 5 minutes.
- Repeat the step to apply a double coat.
- Put the mold in the fridge.
- Make a small ball of the cake mix (approx 1 TBSP) and put them in the mold cavities, and flatten them.
- Slowly insert the sticks. It works better when chocolate hasn’t had time to set.
- Cover the cake mix with white chocolate with the offset spatula.
- Scrape off the excess chocolate paying attention to the edges.
- Put the mold in the fridge for the last time.
- Once the chocolate is firm, the cakesicles are ready to be popped out. Very gently pop them out.
- Melt the red chocolate at 15 second intervals since you don’t need a lot of it.
- Fill a tipless bag with the red chocolate and snip a tiny part off. You want the lines to be thin, not thick.
- Draw the stitches on the cakesicles.
- Allow them to set before packing them up.
If there is a crack on the bottom or sides of the cakesicle, do not fret. You can try to fix it by applying a tiny of chocolate and smoothing it. For large cracks with cake mix showing, they can’t be saved. Use it as your dessert, or give it to your kids tonight.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I really think they are perfect for the baseball season and baseball themed parties!
