How to make Heart Shaped Cake Pops Recipe
To begin making the Heart Shaped Cake Pops Recipe, you must have the pound cake ready. You can optionally buy a store bought cake and make it into crumbles.
Add the crumbled cake into a large mixing bowl. Add a tablespoon of condensed milk at a time to bind the cake to make a cake dough. Take care to make sure the cake does not become too moist. The cake dough should be firm and shapeable.
Pat and press the cake dough into a flat baking sheet with about 1-1/2 inch thickness. Use a small heart shaped cookie cutter and cut small to make heart shaped cake pops.
You can either make small ladoo shaped balls or use a small heart shaped cookie cutter for the shape. If making round balls, make sure there are no cracks in the ball. It should be very smooth. Proceed the similar way with the remaining dough.

Place the cake pops again in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Take 1 tablespoon of water or milk in a bowl. Take out the cake pops from the refrigerator. Brush them lightly with milk and sprinkle colored sprinkles and serve.
