What do you need to make cake pops?

How to Make Cake Pops

Now, if you want an easy cherry and almond cake recipe you can do like we did and make dessert bites and then pour cake pop icing over them and sprinkle with almonds.

Making cake pops a more traditional way, you could add a couple of steps to this recipe and freeze the cake pops for 10-15 minutes and then coat in a chocolate or white chocolate coating, and then decorate. Add in a cake pop stick, and you have an easy cake pop recipe with cake mix - on a stick!

Easy Instant Pot Dessert Bites

The Instant Pot does a great job at making these little cake bites moist and delicious. You can stack your egg bite molds on top of each other. So you can cook 2 molds at a time.

Just cover with aluminum foil or the silicone mold the egg bites came with. Some molds don't have a lid, and then just wrap tightly in foil so condensation doesn't get into the cake.

Glaze For Cherry Almond Cake Bites

So you could make a cinnamon roll glaze to drizzle over the top. Or if you to do what I did, I just melted up some white chocolate wafers. Then I drizzled over the top of the bites.

The white chocolate hardens up a bit so it doesn't melt on your hands the way a frosting or icing would.

How To Store Instant Pot Dessert Bites

For me, I like to store these cherry cake bites in the refrigerator. I find it helps maximize the shelf life of these sweet treats. Just allow the cherry almond cake bites to fully cool.

Then transfer into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Now, make sure if you stack on top of each other you lay a layer of wax paper in between to help prevent them from sticking together.

Do Cherry Cake Bites Freeze

Yes, you can freeze these Instant Pot cake bites. Just let them fully cool and then place them in a container or freezer bag. Freeze for 3-4 months.

Thaw on the counter or even in the fridge overnight. These taste just as good as serving up fresh!

Can I Double This Recipe

These bite-sized cakes can be doubled in terms of the recipe. The biggest thing is to batch cook. You can only get 2 egg bite molds into your pressure cooker at one time.

This would be a fun recipe to make for a birthday treat, baby shower, wedding shower, etc. There is never a wrong time for bite-size cakes. Am I right?

Tips And Tricks for Instant Pot Dessert Bites

  • Make sure to use a cooking spray on your molds. This is going to help ensure your cake bites don't get stuck in the mold.
  • Do not overmix the batter. If you do it can make the cake heavy and not as light and fluffy as you would like.
  • Squeeze around the outside of each of the silicone molds before you flip it upside down to release. This is going to help them fall out.
  • You can use other fruit if you want. Strawberry, blueberry, etc.
  • Make a cream cheese frosting to drizzle over the top of the cakes. Or even a powdered sugar and milk icing.
