Random Cake pops to test out Peanut Butter candy coating

I have been making cake pops for a while now.  I started off just reading stuff on the internet about them.  I don’t even know what made me want to do them.  I read about them and the next day I was at the craft store getting all I needed for them.  I then took a few classes and learned new techniques and nifty tips.  I love making cake pops.  They are so much fun, though, I haven’t learned how to just do a few at a time.  I usually do a whole cake worth of cake pops.  This is just because I love making them so much! I have been doing simple ones up until now.  Most of them just round with fun sprinkles on them.

I ventured out a little bit for Christmas and made these really awesome teddy bear cake pops.  I can’t find a picture of them though.  I just recently made 50 for a silver anniversary for a guy I work with. After I posted a picture of them, another friend contacted me for some cake pops.  She needed some for a baby shower.  At first I was thinking simple.  I was just going to do cake pops with fun baby colors, but I wanted something more.  I racked my brain for a while, then I came across a book for cake pops.  I had a book once before, but everything was made with fondant and that stuff is not fun to play with and it doesn’t taste very good.  So I kind of trashed the book.

Awesome book!

My inspiration

One day while I was at Target with my mom I came across this awesome book for making cake pops.  There are so many awesome ideas in this book!!  I found the baby cake pops in here.  I loved the way they looked, they were so adorable.  So I sent the picture to a friend to see how she liked them.  She loved them, so I got busy finding the supplies to make them.

The bows are made with melted candy, and I could not replicate them.  I tried so hard and couldn’t make a bow with the melted candy.  Also, the faces are drawn on with a pen…I have edible pens, but they were not made for melted candies!  So, it didn’t work out.  I had to take the concept of these cake pops and make them my own.  I still did the candy necklace candies for the pacifier, but I added a little more to it.  I was so excited how well they turned out!

How adorable are they?!  I used sprinkle hearts and sugar pearl sprinkles for the bow.  Some of the melted candy, and pink sprinkles for the head band.  I used black pearl sprinkles for the eyes.  I also used the melted candy for the nose.  I put a little of the melted candy inside the candy necklace candies and dipped it in the same pink sprinkles I used for the bands.  I used strawberry cake and cream cheese frosting for the cake balls.  I think they turned out adorably, and I hope to make them again soon.  I think next time I make them they will be even better.

I got word from my friend that everyone at the baby shower loved them. I wish I had gotten better pictures of them.

If you want to know how to make cake pops, just keep coming back.  I will share with you some of the tips and tricks that I have learned since I started making them.  They are so much fun and so easy to make.

If you have tried these or plan to, please share! I would love to see how others made them different!
