Cake Pops trial run

The inspiration (courtesy of Bakerella's Cake Pops book)...

The Supplies...

The cake, which unfortunately is just a box cake, but still delicious for a trial run!...

 Crumble the cake and mix in some frosting, then roll into balls...

Melt some candy (a Wilton product purchased at Michael's)

Insert in the popsicle sticks 

Dip and let dry (these needed two coats)

Add candy decorations...and your done!  These were just missing the eyes, somehow my black icing tube I purchased didn't make it out of the store =(

So,  what do you think???


  1. OMG Amy! I'm so impressed!! These look absolutely fabulous! Love love love it!

    Were the feet already in feet shape? Also - how do you adhere the feet and beak?

    I really am floored by the great job you did! These are definitely going to be a big hit!

  2. You use the melted candy and just put a dot where you want to place the beak, feet, or any candy and place the candy on cools and hardens pretty quick and then it is stuck. The "feet" are actually just flowers from a candy sprinkle container I separated from other colors.

    I am glad you like it! You can make the same idea out of other desserts as well...Ie: rice crispy treats, etc (hopefully those are Gluten Free!)

  3. Those look so cute! Cake pops are so popular right now and so yummy!! Great job, and nice photos of your work in progress!
