Get out your costumes because it’s officially Spooky Szn. ? And what better way to celebrate All Hallows’ Eve than with a perfectly spooktacular treat? Equal parts scary and sweet, these Halloween cake pops do just the trick.
On this special episode of EATKINDLY With Me, model and plant-based chef Nathan-Josias creates a monster: Frankenstein cake pops.
“Halloween is coming, which means scary stories, horror movies, witches, wizards, goblins, and of course, vegan desserts,” he says.
Nathan-Josias makes the cake pops using a sponge cake he previously prepared. He crumbles the cake and mixes it with a vegan cream cheese. “In a lot of ways, baking is like chemistry. And even though the monster we’re creating today is cake, it takes a lot of precise ingredients and love and care to make a perfect recipe,” he explains.
To make this recipe, you’ll need cake sticks. Once Nathan-Josias places the sticks into all of the cake pop “heads,” he whips up icing in Frankenstein’s signature green color using a plant-based food coloring. (Pro tip: A cake pop stand will make whipping up these scary treats easy.)

So, how do they taste? “The sponge cake is so moist with the cream cheese,” he says. “Absolutely delicious. It’s just the perfect cake pop.” Here’s how to make them.
