Step 6: Decorate your Pops

Picture of Decorate your Pops
Now it's time to get creative.
If you had any pops that didn't turn out so hot, practice on those.

I don't have any pictures of my decorating process, but I just used what I had in terms of glitter and confetti and such. The ducks' noses and wings were more melted candy coating, and the feet were little orange stars that came in the confetti mixture. The eyes were dotted on with the tube decorator icing.

The eggs were made by using the decorator icing and glitter/confetti.

So what should my next ones look like??

Fantastic Instructable! Thanks so very much. I made a batch of 'pops' for my son's 6th birthday party tomorrow. I did half with a vanilla cake mix and the other half with a double choc cake mix. The candy coating has a 'mind of its own' (!) and I gave up trying to make it pretty, instead going for the maximum sugar content and any kind of sprinkles I could attach! The kids will love 'em anyway and it makes such a welcome change to the boring old cake served up at all the other kid parties! Thanks again :)

hmm... slight problem... i dont think u can get "candy melts" in australia
Try wilton.com or joann.com to order them online

Almond bark, AKA, white chocolate is the same thing with a few drops of food coloring.

How would you decorate a soccer ball? I have a friend I'd love to do this for!

Also, anyone have any ideas for how to make Mickey on a stick?

Love these ideas, thanks!!
I bought a mickey mold on amazon for 2.99. I haven't used it yet but it is a good sized mold

  I'm cheap and didn't want to spend $8 on a piece of strofoam so I did without... now I realize why I really needed it! Crap... I have some old pieces of wood in the garage. I'm thinking about drilling holes in some.... haha. I hope it works! I'm cheap. :P

 Pictures once I'm done if they don't suck!

Save your money...use an egg carton to stick pops into; cardboard or styrofoam, but the styrofoam ones may work better. :-)

What do you stick the cake pops in while you are decorating...?
I'm going to do this for a friends baby shower!! Hello Kitty Pops here I come!
does anybody know if they turn out better not freezing the sticks in?
oooo, for halloween, you could inject jelly into the middle of them, and decorate them like eyeballs. when people bite into them, you got BLEEDING EYEBALLS!!HAHAHAHA!!!
Instead of injecting the jelly, form the cake balls around frozen jelly centers.
 it would be kinda hard to get a jelly sphere and then freeze it

Why not just get an ice cube tray thats spherical? Like this one :) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0019IJJI6/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_3?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B001CDB878&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1TTBXVMX451XACYHEJB9
Liquid nitrogen would fix that right up.
 true, but it wouldn't really be an instructable, more like a "if-you-can-get-your-hands-on-it-able"

Sure, but it would be very satisfyingly gratuitous.

that is a freakin awesome idea!!!!!!!!
That is an awesome idea, I will have to try it...
terrific idea... ;o)
that is the best idea in the world ever! so doing that. how about pumpkins as well?
Make some pokeballs! And other round-themed pokemon!
POKEBALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! clefairies maybe.....?

I think that eyeballs at Halloween with reddish cake would be great, as said above. At Christmas I'd go with snowman heads or Christmas ornaments. Forth July 4th I'm not really sure what you could do, aside from doing red-white-and blue coatings, and I'd definitely go with hearts for Valentine's day. These would also be great for any kid birthday.

For the Fourth of July you could shape it like a fire cracker and use black shoelace licorice as a wick

Any suggestions as to "Bowling Ball Cake Pops"????
bananaskate5 years ago
-SO- awesome, making a bunch of halloween themed heads :)
I might try that suggestion of frozen jelly centers...
it only makes sense that if you bite into a mummy/zombie head it oozes a bit of gore. Also thinking of utilizing some food coloring for pumpkins, skulls, ghosties, and whatever else I can think of... Thanks for the super awesome instructable!
om nom nom nom nom
these are really cute! But ,for Christmas, you could make them squares and make them look like presents!(just an idea) great job :)

And for that die-hard hunter man of yours (I live in Montana and know a few), how about making Elk Poop Pops. Chocolate droppings with raisins for added texture. lol
