Step 1:

Start by cutting your Fruit Roll Ups or liquorice into the shapes of super hero capes and chest emblems. Fold the narrower edge of the cape upward so that it will attach to your cake pops. (If you are using liquorice, you will need to flatten the candy with a rolling pin before cutting your shapes.)

Step 2:

Create a mixture of half meringue powder and half water. Use a small food-safe paint brush to apply a light coating of the mixture to your capes and chest emblems. Before the coating dries, sprinkle the shapes with disco dust to add some super hero sparkle. After the coating dries, gently shake off any excess disco dust and get ready to dip your cake pops.

Thanks, Jade! I just knew I wanted to make some super hero themed treats for Fathers Day and started brainstorming. I made these cake pops and Super Dad chocolate sugar cookies.

I love the cape on the back! Cute idea.

Can you use icing or the melts to put an 'S' over the dust? Would it stick?

@world360 I think that would work just fine.
