I made Baby Face Cake Pops for someone special today.
Her name is Jenny and she’s about to have a baby boy. Her third. She’s also giving birth to her first cookbook  this year, and I’m very excited for her and the whole family.
You may already know Jenny. She is the light and love behind Picky Palate  and she’s a cherished friend of mine.
I love how blogging brings people together and I’m happy to call Jenny my friend.
And even happier to be a part of this virtual shower for her with some other friends today.
I’ve made them before (they’re in the book), but I’ve been wanting to play around with different faces to make them better and I think these guys came out pretty cute.
These have smaller noses. Bigger smiles. Confetti sprinkle cheeks and simpler eyes. And now I wish I could update them in the book.
Here are some basic cake pop instructions .
For these baby heads, I mixed white candy coating with a little butterscotch and peach colored candy coating. Add them in small amounts until you get a shade you like. You can also just use peach or brown with white. Whatever works for you.
The faces are easy to decorate.
Candy necklace pieces, confetti sprinkles and marshmallow bits. These help make the baby faces look as cute as can be.
But I thought they needed a little something more.
So I dressed them up a little.
Baby bibs. Eeeeek! I may never be able to make baby cake pops without bibs again. So cute. And so customizable!
These are basically cake pop tags , but with one hole punched, placed right under the pop and curled a bit to hang down.
……And for girls, check out how Pop Star Veronika  made bonnets. So clever.
Then I made some more bibs … just for Jenny this time.
If you know Jenny, you know her little one is destined to be a cookie lover. How could he not be with all the yummy cookie creations she comes up with over at Picky Palate .
Hey Jenny! Hope you like these little guys.
These are more generic bibs I made in blue. And I made some pink ones for you guys, too.
Here’s a pdf you can download  if you’d like to use them.
And here’s a pdf of just the cookie bibs  if you’d like those.
Just use a 1.5 inch paper punch to cut them out and then use a small hole punch at the top and you can slip them right on the sticks.
P.S. – Jenny, I’m sorry, but I bit your baby.
