Graduation Day Cake Pops

Congratulations to all those who are graduating! I myself do not graduate from junior high until next year, but I made these cake pops anyway for our neighbors’ college graduation party.


I found this cute idea on this blog and decided to try it out.

If you haven’t figured it out already, these cake pops are supposed to look like little blue graduation day hats.


For the bottom portion of these cake pops, I used cupcake shaped chocolate molds and I filled the mold with blue candy melts and a cake ball in the center. Then I placed a lollipop stick into the center of the cake ball and I let it harden in the freezer. For directions on how to make cake balls, please look below.


Then for the top part of the hat, I didn’t find any square chocolate molds, so instead I improvised. I placed a square cookie cutter on top of a parchment lined tray and I filled the cutter with the blue candy melts. Then I placed the tray into the freezer until the chocolate hardened. I took the tray out and when I picked the cutter up, the chocolate easily slipped out.


For decorations, I used a mini yellow M&M and I used an Air Heads Extremes candy for the yellow tail of the hat.

Our neighbors really enjoyed them and I hope you do too!

Lego Head Marshmallow Pops

Along with the Lego cake I made for my brother’s birthday, I made marshmallow pops that look like Lego mini figure heads. These were really easy to make. I took one half of a mini marshmallow and glued I t on top of a normal sized marshmallow using a bit of chocolate. After that, I Inserted a Popsicle stick into the end of the marshmallow and then dipped the whole marshmallow into yellow chocolate and let it dry. Then using a food marker, I drew on little faces and Ta Da! You have adorable and tasty treats! Thanks for reading!

Cake Pops!

Last Thursday was the last day of school, so I made cake pops as a farewell dessert for my friends and my home room teacher.  I made vanilla cake pops in my Bella cake pop maker. I coated half of the cake pops with white chocolate chips and the rest with Wilton Chocolate candy melts. I found out that the Wilton candy melts covered the cake pops more smoothly, but both kinds tasted delicious and all my friends loved them. I covered some of them with treat bags. I had few left overs which i gave to my friends in the neighborhood and the rest my mom took to her office.

Here are a few pics of the cake pops:
