A Sweet Reminder

Political Cake Pops

Tuesday’s a big day. And, hopefully we won’t have to stand in line as long as it took me to make these cake pops. Hmmmm, maybe I should just bring some with me to snack on while I wait. Yum!

How great are those?!!
I doubt I’d have the patience to whip those up.

i’d bet you could get to the front of the line by handing out some of these :(

You should hand those out to some bored voters. I bet you’d put a smile on more than just a few faces!

I think you have way too much time on your hands, and I’d like to have some of that extra time, LOL!!! Seriously, they are sublime. You should totally do a book of all the cake pops.

Wow! Those are *super* cute!

I already voted about a week and a half ago — I stood in line for 30 minutes.

these are awesome – i would love to be in your line tomorrow just to get a treat like this. i just have to ask – how you get them so smooth and perfectly round – i was only happy with the way our one eyed purple people eaters came out – because they didnt need to be so smooth – these just look GREAT!!!-sarah

I’m giving cake pops a whirl next week. I can’t wait. I’m going to try white chocolate mud cake ones.

I can’t believe that voting isn’t compulsary in the States (like here in Australia) and that you have to line up for so long.

May the best man be President. x

I knew when I woke up this morning you would have something election related. You inspired me to make my own patriotic cupcakes encouraging everyone at work to vote. Made red velvet cupcakes with blue cream cheese frosting & wrote vote just like one of your previous examples. I know everyone will just love them, thanks to you! You will definitely have more suscribers…

Too cute! How creative!

I just think this is hilariuos so I will share it with you – I am so glad your contest is over – I accidentally had every comment sent to my e-mail in-box – I accidentally clicked “E-mail follow-up comments to my e-mail address” Ah! I know there were 400 or so e-mails I received. Oh, well! Glad you got so many people who participated.

I had to scroll back to see what brand of edible ink pens you use – don’t try the Wilton ones, they don’t work at all.

I was so dissapointed.

These are awesome! Can I ask what brand of food writing markers you use? The brand I have is lousy. The black always comes out blu-ish green and they don’t write well.

Those are so cute! And yes, I voted! I live in a smallish town, so there wasn’t even a line – I just went right in. How cool is that!

I’m from Holland so i don’t need to vote. But here on national television there are a lot of shows about who’s becoming the new president. I hope my favourite wins, but we’ll know tomorrow.

Adorable!! How did you make the three colors? I was going to make some candy-corn cake pops this year, but couldn’t figure out how to do three different colors. Any ideas?

November 4, 2008 11:36 PM
angelabarton said...

Gotta say..WOW…you have some kinda talent, imagination, and of course some patience to do those lollipops! I’ve tried twice and yet to be successful in your recipe! But I’ll keep trying.

OMG – these are absolutely divine!! I have been making cakes for a while and never seen anything like these – are they actually cake inside? i would love to give these a go!

Too cute!

Just wanted to tell you that I made these cake pops of yours, I’ve been drooling with the idea for so long and finally did it. I made mine with cherry chip cake mix, cherry frosting and white chocolate chips. Yum!

These are SO great! I love them.

{And I used one of those pics on my blog today.}

it’s awesome that there has been this “problem” of long lines all over… people taking a greater interest in public issues is always a good thing

so clever and adorable! i bet if you offered one of these to anyone who came out to vote we would have had a record number of voters show up at the polls. :)

Bakerella said...

Wow! Glad you all liked these so much. For those that asked, the pens I use are the Americolor brand. The others I have tried stink.

link to astore.amazon.com

And for the technique:

First I dipped it in white and let dry.
Then while still on the stick I dipped the top in red and let dry.
Then, carefully remove the lollipop stick.
And holding it by the top (red) dip the other side in blue.
Then, dip the tip of the stick back in some melted blue and reinsert to help glue it back together.

And classic cakes – yes, there is cake inside

flourgirl said...

These are great! I just made cake balls for the first time today and my daughter, husband and husband’s best friend have been busy devouring them. Big question for you — how do you get the chocolate coating so smooth? I used a cookie scoop so that may be part of it. Any hints? I’m sure a lot of it is practice! That’s what I usually end up telling friends when they ask about my cookies. =)

November 15, 2008 01:38 AM
Bakerella said...

flourgirl – Yeah, practice has a lot to do with it. But read my comments on this post. I answer that question.

wafa said...

Hi Bakerella, I am a little confused what did you dip the cake pop in to get the red and blue color?

November 19, 2008 11:42 PM
Bakerella said...

wafa – Sure. First I dipped it in white candy melts and let dry.
Then while still on the stick I dipped the top in red candy melts and let dry.
Then, carefully remove the lollipop stick.
And holding it by the top (red) dip the other side in blue melts.
Then, dip the tip of the stick back in some melted blue and reinsert to help glue it back together.

Oh ok thanks, They looked so neat thats why i was wondering

These are too cute!

Quick question – what brand candy melts did you use for these? The only blue and red I’ve come across seem to be a lighter shade, like the one you used for the cupcakes with the teddy grahams on top. I would really like to find a better blue for the fourth of July.

Hi! I’m new to your site (although one of my bestfriends frequents often and I have been a fan for much longer through pics and links she has sent me…)

First, I want to say thank you. I love your site, you are so very talented, and I really enjoy being able to read and see all of your many amazing creations!

Secondly, I’m a total novice to this stuff. I’m going to attempt to make your valentines (heart box + “truffles”) for valentines day (wish me luck! haha)… but I came across these and I’d like to make them for my boyfriends birthday (he’s very into politics). Do you have any instructions on how you made these? Sorry if this is a silly question, it seems like maybe you just dipped them in colors… but I’m sure its probably harder than that! Thanks!! :)

Jennifer said...

What did you use for the stars? How did you stick them on? Do you know how I could get the stars to be silver? My daughter is starting her first dance competition season and I’d like to make pops for the team in the dance studio colors – black, lime green and silver. Do you know of a good lime green coloring. I was thinking of making green cake (white cake with food coloring), then dip in black to coat the pop. Then silver and green stars. Is there pen that writes in neon green or silver?
