  • Cake Pop Maker
  • Whisk
  • Frying pan


For the cake balls:

  • 5 oz. vanilla cake mix from a box
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ½ tbsp. vegetable oil
  • cup water

For the icing:

  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup


  • 3 bacon strips
  • ½ tbsp. maple syrup


  • Whisk the cake ball ingredients together to form a batter.
  • Plug in the cake pop maker to preheat it.
  • Working quickly, use a teaspoon to transfer the batter to the cake pop maker holes to just below the top (so that they don't overflow when baking). Close the lid and bake them for around 4 minutes, or until baked through. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  • Mix all icing ingredients until creamy.
  • Cook bacon strips in a skillet at medium temperature until golden brown on both sides. Remove excess grease and cut them into tiny squares. Add them to a bowl with ½ tbsp. maple syrup and mix well to coat.
  • Drizzle icing over cake balls and top with the glazed bacon bits. Serve.
