Almost Easter

Easter is next weekend and I am way behind on making spring sweets. I’m hoping to post something again before Sunday, but in the meantime I hope you like these pretty pops.


Pink, yellow and white. They would be perfect just like this or with just a few white sprinkles dressing them up a bit.

But, I didn’t leave them this way.


Nope. These cake balls turned into something cute.

It’s hard to stop at simple sometimes. But I need to do that more often, because they can look amazing in just a color or two.


I dipped a third of the cake pops in white.

Actually Mercken’s Super White. Nice and fluid. Nothing added.

It’s easy to work with and melts like a dream.



Cake pop in. And out.

And nice and smooth.

Anyone wondering what I’m making yet?


Well, I used these fluffy chenille stems (or pipe cleaners as I still like to call them) if it helps any.

And if it doesn’t, the next picture that shows how I twisted them should.


Got a guess yet?


Yep! Pipe cleaners make super cute bunny ears.


I wish I could say I was really smart and thought of this first, but I saw an idea last Christmas when Lisa’s reindeer cake pops crossed my path. They served double duty acting as antlers and also the ties to secure her treat bags. Take a look at her pops and say hi. They are super clever.

Then, this weekend I thought her antler idea could also translate into Easter bunny ears. Making ears this way is a great alternative to gluing them to the pop – especially if you will be giving them away in treat bags. Because the ears can get knocked off if you’re not careful when you wrap and transport them.

But you can also just make them this way at home. Because. They. Are. Key-ute!


I tried two sizes but went with the fuller version since bunnies are full of fluff.


They worked out great.

To make cake pops, you can refer to the basic instructions here and let the dipped pops dry on a wax paper-covered baking sheet instead of standing them up in a styrofoam block.


To decorate the cake pops I used soft edible sugar pearls (found at Cake Art) to start. These are a little pricey but in small quantities they are worth it.

For the bunny nose I used pink coated sunflower seeds. The tongues are pink confetti sprinkles. And the bow ties and flowers are Daisy sprinkles.

And of course candy eyes for eyes. : )

All of the pieces are attached to the pop with just a little bit of melted candy coating for glue.
Use more coating to dot they eyes with a toothpick, connect the bowties or decorate the flowers on the pops below.

You can also use a pink edible ink pen to make rosy cheeks and a black edible ink pen to draw on whiskers.


Viola! Bunny.

And feel free to improvise. Swap the sugar pearls for white M&M’s or jelly beans. You could even just pipe them or the noses on with melted candy coating. Change the Daisy sprinkles to heart sprinkles or any other shape that you like. And you can always just draw on eyes if you can’t get your hands on any candy ones.

Spring is in the hare.

Here are some in pink and yellow, too. I think I like the white ones best though.


And here they are using the pipe cleaner bunny ears to twist, tie and secure the treat bags.

Seriously cute and sure to bring smiles to anyone you make them for.

Happy Cake Popping!

Simple is best for some of your followers perhaps (like me), but for you…Do not keep it simple! Continue to absolutely blow our socks off. Again. And again. Just like you did today!

Wow! You are a genius, I just love these little Easter bunnies. A perfect Easter gift. You are so lucky in the USA, you have such a large variety of cake decorations on the market.
I love reading your blog here in the UK.
Happy Easter Bakerella.

Love this idea! Any pointers on using the white chocolate? I use both the white and super white merCkins super white and I can’t seem to get it to melt as fluid as milk chocolate, it seems to set very lumpy. I know the tempering is at a lower temp than milk chocolate, but nothing I seem to do prevents that molten lava clumpy look. Any advice would be much appreciated.

“Thanks” for the inspiration, and for sharing your work. You are amazingly creative artist! I have one question. What size sugar pearls did you use? These are absolutely adorable!

I looked back at the list of items, and I see they are 8mm. “Thank you” again. : )

I don’t understand why they don’t crack themselves from pure and absolute cuteness. They are the most cute pops I’ve ever seen. And you’ve made lots of hiper cute things these years. But these… Are awesome.

No entiendo como no revientan de puro monísimos que son. Son los más monos que he visto nunca. Y eso que en estos años has hecho cosas preciosas, pero estos son una auténtica maravilla.

Angie just when I think you couldn’t possibly come up with another amazing creation you outdo yourself again. OMG these are so adorable. I love the cute little bunnies! You do realize no one is going to want to eat them. They’re just too precious. I can’t wait to try them.

These are so adorable! I like the version where you used the pipe cleaners to secure the bag because the pipe cleaners are not edible….and this adds an adorable packaging/presentation to it. Great work as usual!

There must be something wrong with my phone because I posted twice and it hasn’t come up.

Anyway these are so adorable. You’ve outdone yourself again with these darling little rabbits. They’re so cute no one is going to want to eat them and ruin this precious little bite.

What did you end up using for the cheeks on the bunny? I can’t tell if they’re marshmellows or something else?

Love these and look forward to trying them and sharing with the neighborhood kids.

Yep, you said it…SUPER cute! Doing the stick this way has been my favorite thing lately…quicker and easier!
Also, instead of icing I’ve been adding smooth peanut butter to my plain (golden/yellow) cake crumbs…divine with milk chocolate coating and a few crushed peanuts.

I’m so bummed! I just tried to make some cake pops, and they turned out HORRIBLE! I don’t know what I did wrong :\

Even when I first rolled them out, they didn’t even roll into balls… & as soon as they were shaped, I put them on the pan and they flattened out :( Then they wouldn’t stay on the stick, even after I let them set in the freezer.

so stinkin’ cute – so much personality those little faces have!!!
You are so talented – you must work hard to create cake pops that haven’t been done before!
I think I have a couple ideas of cake pops that haven’t been done (crossing fingers) – but I better get going on them because they are everywhere and have been done in a million different ways!
Love the idea of adding the (non edible) accessory though!
Happy Easter…can’t wait for your next post :)
