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.
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!
