Rose Gold Cake Pops

Supplies Needed:

  • CK White Cake Mix
  • CK White Buttercream
  • Cake Pop Sticks
  • Mercken’s Bright White Confectionary Coating
  • Parchment Paper
  • Rose Gold Imperial Dust
  • Confectioners Glaze Thinner
  • Brush
  • Paint Tray
  • Celebakes Rose Gold Non-Pareils
  • Celebakes Rose Gold Sugar Crystals
  • Celebakes Bright White Candy Writer


  1. Bake CK White Cake Mix according to directions on the back of the bag. Cool completely and crumble up.
  2. Once crumbled, add CK White Buttercream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture comes together and is not sticky. To test your mixture, try rolling it into a ball. If there are little to no cracks and it holds it shape nicely, you have the perfect consistency.
  3. Once you have reached this consistency, you can roll out the pops using your hands until completely smooth. Use 1-1.5 tablespoons of mixture per pop.
  4. Place the cake pops onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill for 2 hours before moving onto the next step.
  5. Melt a small amount of the white confectionary coating in the microwave. Dip the very end of a cake pop stick into this melted coating. Place this same end of the stick into the cake pop– this is going to help ensure the stick will stay in the cake pop. Freeze for 20 minutes.
  6. Melt a larger amount of the white confectionary coating in the microwave. Remove the cake pops from the freezer. Holding the cake pop stick securely, dip the cake pop into the melted white coating. Tap the cake pop gently to smooth surface and remove any excess coating. Once all excess coating is off, place the pop onto parchment paper to harden.
  7. Depending on the design of cake pop you are working on, the process is a bit different. If you are wanting to put the Celebakes rose gold non pareils or sugar crystals on, you need to do so before the coating has completely set up. If you are wanting to have the cake pop be completely rose gold or have rose gold drizzle, you need to let the coating set up completely before completing the design.
  8. For the cake pops drizzled with rose gold, melt a Celebakes bright white candy writer in the microwave for 1 minute. Cut the tip off and drizzle this coating around the cake pop. Let the coating set up completely before moving onto the next step. Mix together equal amounts of rose gold imperial dust and confectioners glaze thinner together in a paint tray. Using a small brush, carefully paint the drizzle.
  9. For the cake pops that are all rose gold, mix together equal amounts of rose gold imperial dust and confectioners glaze thinner together in a paint tray. Using a paint brush, completely coat the entire cake pop.


  • The Rose Gold Imperial Dust is for decorative use only and is NOT intended for consumption.
  • If the cake pops start to fall off of the stick, place them back into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
  • If the coating on your cake pops begins to crack, that means the cake pops are too cold– let them set for a few minutes and resume dipping them.
  • If the confectionary coating becomes thick, try adding some paramount crystals to help thin it out.
  • Use our other Imperial Dust Colors to create a completely different look! Pair them with our other Celebakes metallic sprinkles.
