First of all, have you ever heard of Cakesicles? These Mummy Cakesicles are awesome!

These Mummy Cakesicles are not only a fabulous idea for an awesome fall treat, they're really good too!  They're simply cake and frosting dipped in chocolate

And when it concerns cake on a stick, count us in!

These cakesicles are such a fun treat, because they’re delicious. Basically, how can you go wrong with cake and frosting dipped in chocolate? When Scarlet was two, and we could still choose her birthday party themes, we chose a “Food on a Stick” party. We had mac and cheese balls on sticks, meatballs on sticks, vegetable tempura on sticks, and of course, the pièce de résistance – cake pops. Cake on sticks. That was before they were trendy, so it was pretty novel. These too!

Mummy Cakesicles:

What You Need:

FOR THE CAKE:
1 Tbsp of baking powder
1 Tbsp of baking soda
3 cups of flour
1/2 tsp of salt
2 1/4 cups of sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 1/3 cups of milk (you can use Soy, or Almond, or whatever you prefer)
2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla

FOR THE FROSTING:
2 sticks of butter
4 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of milk
1 tsp of vanilla
(Food coloring or food coloring gel if you want the cakesicles to be a color instead of white – optional – your choice – we used aqua)

FOR THE COATING – OUTSIDE LAYER:
White chocolate almond bark – MELTED
Candy eyes – (see link to purchase)

COOKS TOOLS NEEDED:

Electric mixer
Cakesicles Mold
9 x 13 pan
Spatulas
Microwave
Pastry bag – or plastic food bag for drizzling icing

What You Do:

(for cake from scratch)

1 – First, in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, with the whisk attachment, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy

2 – Then, add the vanilla and eggs, and mix until completely blended

3 – In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, until well blended, and add the flour mixture and the milk, alternatively to the mixing bowl, mixing on low speed between additions until all ingredients have been added

4 – Mix on high for about 1 minute to make sure all ingredients have been well incorporated

5 – Turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, and stir the batter

6 – Butter the bottom and sides of a 9 X 13 dish, and pour the cake batter into the dish

7 – Bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and then move to a wire rack to cool

Frosting:

8 – Wash and dry the mixing bowl and whisk attachment, and add the 2 sticks of softened butter, milk, and vanilla to the mixing bowl, and mix to blend (IF YOU’RE USING A COLOR, ADD THE FOOD COLORING, OR FOOD COLORING GEL AT THIS TIME, BEFORE YOU ADD THE POWDERED SUGAR – it will lighten the color)

9 – Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing on low speed between additions until all the sugar has been added

10 – Scrape the sides off the bowl, and blend again – if frosting is not thick enough, add a little more powdered sugar until a thick consistency is achieved

11 – Remove mixing bowl to the refrigerator, and when cake is cool, break up the cake into crumbs, right in the pan it was baked in

12 – Then, when the cake is crumbs, add about a cup of the frosting at a time, and stir the cake and frosting together until you have a big ball of cake and frosting that sticks together, so you’ll need to add more frosting, but don’t over add

13 – You want it to be thick so that it will hold its form in the cakesicle molds, and then set aside

Assemble the Mummy Cakesicles:

14 – In the microwave, melt 3 squares of the white chocolate almond bark in a microwave safe bowl on 10 second intervals until it’s smooth.

15 – Spoon the white chocolate into the cakesicle molds, and turn the molds a little sideways in both directions to coat the inside of the molds with white chocolate

16 – Place the molds in the freezer for 30 minutes for all the chocolate to set

17 – When chocolate is set, place a heaping Tbsp of the cake/frosting mixture into the mold, and form the cakesicle, adding more of the cake/frosting mixture, until all the molds have been filled, and are full, but level with the mold

18 – Insert the sticks in the cake mixture, using the mold as a guide

19 – Pop the white chocolate back in the microwave for a few seconds, and stir to make sure it’s smooth, and spoon onto the cakesicles with a spatula to cover the mold in white chocolate

Set the chocolate:

20 – Place the mold in the refrigerator for about an hour to completely set the white chocolate

21 – When chocolate is set, remove the cakesicles from the molds, and place them on parchment paper

22 – Melt another 3 squares of the white chocolate in the microwave, and stir until smooth, then place the white chocolate in a pastry bag, and snip off the very tip of the bag, leaving only a small hole to drizzle the chocolate through

23 – Drizzle the white chocolate back and forth across the cakesicles to form what looks like bandage wrappings on the mummies

24 – Coat a little wider place where the eyes should go, and place the candy eyes on the white chocolate, then drizzle around the eyes as though they’re peeking out from under the bandages

25 – Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about an hour to allow the drizzled chocolate and eyes to set

26 – Lastly, serve immediately, or place in a single layer in an airtight container, and keep refrigerated until time to serve. Enjoy!

Recipe yields 10 – 12 Mummy Cakesicles

Notes: You can use a store bought cake if you don’t have time to bake a cake. Just make sure you buy a cake with the desired color frosting, or buy an un-frosted cake and buy frosting in the desired color to mix with the cake.
