Bunny Cake Pops

I’m a little behind on posting this week. I started making the sweetest cake pops on Sunday and had to detour from photographing them so I could work on my taxes. Boring! But I had to get ready for an appointment the next day which meant diving into a big stack of paperwork that I’ve been building on… all year. And avoiding. Yuck-o-rama! And definitely not as much fun as cake pops.

But I finally finished taking pictures last night and yay, here they are.

Jordan Almonds

The cake pops I made were inspired by these pretty jordan almonds.

Well, mainly just the white ones.

Easter Bunny Cake Pops

They make the best bunny ears. Like perfect.

I’ve made bunny cake pops before with pastel candy corn and also with pipe cleaners (really, really cute), but oh my – these jordan almonds bunnies are too much. I think these might be my favorite ears, but let me know yours if you look at the other bunny links.

So, I used only the white almonds for these, but you can certainly make them with the other colors as well.

Bunnies are like snowmen to me. I want to make them again and again and again. There’s so many ways to make them look different and still super cute.

Bunny Cake Pops

I totally glammed them up too – with blue eyes, big eyelashes, blush, barrettes and bows!

They’re dressed up for Easter you know.

But you can always dress them down, too. The ears alone create a fun canvas to decorate on.

Bunny making

I made the bunny heads with more of an oval shape. And before I chilled the balls, I used an almond to make impressions on the top. That way when you dip, the ears will look like part of the head instead of sitting on top of it.

Here are some basic instructions for generic cake pops.

  • Follow the directions on the link and then shape the balls into ovals.
  • Make impressions in the cake balls for the ears using the pointed end of a jordan almond.
  • Dip the pops and before the coating dries, place the almonds in position for ears.
  • Hold in position for a couple of seconds so they don’t fall over.
  • Let dry and then you can add all of the decorations on.
  • Or just a few … dress your bunnies in any number of ways.
  • To decorate, dot on a small amount of candy coating and attach sprinkles in position.

Speaking of candy coating. I love the Merckens Super White. Try it some time.

Bunny Pops

Glam bunnies.

I used a few sprinkles for the faces, but keep in mind you can also just pipe them on with candy coating for a simpler approach.

I just couldn’t stop.

Here’s what I used…


  • Jordan almonds and a pink Americolor Gourmet Writing Pen for the ears.
  • Jumbo flower sprinkles for barrettes – dotted with melted candy coating and sprinkled with sanding sugar for the centers.
  • Blue icing eyes for … well, the eyes.
  • Pink rainbow chip sprinkles for noses.
  • Pink luster dust applied with a dry brush for blush.
  • A black edible ink pen for eyelashes and eyebrows
  • And more white candy coating, dotted on for freckles and drawn on for hair.
  • Oh, and toothpicks. I can never have too many.

Easter Bunny Cake Pop

Hey there hunnybunny!

Oh yeah, I made cake pop tags for you too if you’d like to download them for your pops or even for cupcake toppers.

Somebunny Loves You Cake Pop Tags

But that’s not all.

I have another bunny to show you. A little bit simpler. Not as fancy but just as fun.

Ice cream cone sprinkles

This bunny was inspired by these ice cream cone sweet tarts. These are the kind of unique candy/sprinkles I like to snatch up as soon as I see them. I usually have no idea at the time what I’ll use them for but I know at some point they’ll come in handy for something.

And the orange ones above totally did … literally. Know where I’m going?


I used the almonds again for ears, the pink rainbow chip sprinkles for noses, mini marshmallows for feet and arms, green daisy sprinkles and orange ice cream candy… you guessed it … for carrots.

Easter Bunny Cake Pops

Same ears, but a totally different lovable, huggable little bunny?

Hugs and hope you like these little guys.

Rebecca said...

You are insane! I could never in a million years do what you do but I love your creative mind!
I’ll stick with my plain boring cake pops, although maybe I’ll fancy them up for Easter this year!

March 20, 2013 12:13 AM
Lyndsi said...

Love these! Your cake pops get cuter and cuter with each batch, if that’s possible.

March 20, 2013 12:17 AM
Kimberley Mulla said...

These are just adorable! I especially love the bunny holding the carrot- I think I will try this one first. Thanks so much!

March 20, 2013 12:19 AM
Heidi said...

You are so amazingly creative it’s ridiculous! Those little carrots are sooooo cute! Where did you find those ice cream cone candies???

March 20, 2013 12:19 AM
Bakerella said...

Rebecca – plain is perfect. I love a sea of colored cake pops.

Heidi – I can’t remember but I linked to a site I found online that you can order them from – look at the bottom of the post.

I just can’t get over the fuzzy feets on Second Somebunny but I love the cute detail on First Somebunny, too. They make a charming couple!

March 20, 2013 12:33 AM
Mellie said...

Oh.My.Goodness. I love the first bunnies, but the second, simpler bunny just stole my heart. I don’t know if I’ll find those ice cream candies in time for Easter, but hopefully I can find something close enough!

March 20, 2013 12:36 AM
Bakerella said...

Mellie – He is kind of lovable. He was a last minute decorating idea and I only made a couple with my last two cake balls. Wish I had made more for a better picture.

How did you make the dimple on the second bunnies feet?

These are adorable perfection. Oh my goodness. Thanks for brightening my day :)

March 20, 2013 01:13 AM
Brigette said...

So adorable! I wanna hug the 2nd bunny. I won’t be able to consume these pretty things!
Bakerella – what do you with these when u are done? Eat them? Give them away?

March 20, 2013 01:37 AM

Both of the bunnies are so adorable.I will have to make them for Easter. Happy 1st day of Spring everyone!!!!

On the first bunny what did you use for the cheeks? I love them both! :)

March 20, 2013 02:09 AM
Elisa said...

Everything you do is awesome, but I agree that these are the most perfect bunnies ever! I just love them.

March 20, 2013 03:38 AM
Sosheil said...

Where did you get the sheet of “eyeballs”? Luv-luv-luv the bunnies!!!

March 20, 2013 03:44 AM
Jayne said...

Lady! You’ve gone too far with the cuteness scale. I can’t take it! And I agree, the 2nd bunny is unbelievably cute. I love that you make use of random candies and end up with such beauties. That’s my philosophy in cooking too.

March 20, 2013 03:49 AM
Kim-Marie said...

Love the glam bunny! but omg love love love the marshmallow feetie bunny…now to buy some jordan almonds and find those ice cream candies! ty once again for haring your amazing talent!…haha..I meant Sharing but left the typo as it’s PUNNY

ab said...

They’re both great, but love that little bunny and it seems easy enough for me to attempt.

March 20, 2013 04:35 AM
Barbara Le Torte di Applepie said...

Simply amazing! In italy we call the almonds covered with sugar “confetti” and it’ s soo a smart idea to use them with cake pops! Thank’s for sharing!

March 20, 2013 04:37 AM
Lydia said...

Wow, these are great! The first bunnies are adorable, but in my books simple is sensational–the second bunnies will most definitely be in my house at Easter! I probably won’t find the ice-cream lollies in time though so maybe I’ll just stick with carrot-less rabbits. Have a great Easter!

March 20, 2013 04:55 AM
Winnie said...

They are adorable! Glam bunny and sweet bunny, something for everyone. I look at your pops all the time, I just need to try my hand at them. I am thinking I will make some for my tea party for Mother’s Day with my sisters and their daughters. Thank you for inspiring me to try.

March 20, 2013 05:09 AM
Emily said...

I wasn’t sure what you were gonna do with the ice cream cone candies. So cute! You have such a good vision for those kinds of things, pass a little of that my way :)

March 20, 2013 05:49 AM
Amy said...

Is there a trick to using the americolor pens. I have used them a couple times and they never apply smoothly for me:(

March 20, 2013 06:20 AM
Michelle said...

Far Out! I would hate to go up against you in a patience contest. You have the concentration of a surgeon. They are far too good to eat.
I have a new line for you – fake cake pops – ones that will last forever. plastic and polystyrene etc — because I just can’t fathom all that work being munched away!!!!!

March 20, 2013 06:54 AM
Jennifer said...

The are both awesome.The first ones look like they belong at a fancy dinner or something they look so glam.I like the litrle ones with the carrot best of the two.I think it is super adorable.Problem is no ome woild want to eat tuem they are so cute.

March 20, 2013 07:22 AM
Jennifer said...

Wow don’t know what happened there.Suppose to be no one would want to eat them.

March 20, 2013 07:27 AM
Vicki said...

The first ones are adorable, but the 2nd ones are my favourite… just too CUTE!!

March 20, 2013 07:48 AM
Amy Codman said...

They are both utterly impressive. I love the vintage look of the first bunnies but there is something so sweet about the simplicity o the second. Let me add, too, there is nothing simple about creating cake pops. You make it look so easy!

March 20, 2013 07:55 AM
jennifer said...

I am convinced that you were born with with a sprinkle filter in your brain that lets you create such clever designs. Both bunnies are cute but that second one is especially adorable.

March 20, 2013 08:46 AM
Lyndsay said...

Those bunrabs are just adorbies! I like them both but I’m all about the glam bunny, sooooooo pretty <3

Ahhhhh!!! The first bunnies are adorable, but the second ones kill me with their cuteness! *I die*

Why am I so bad at making these? This would have been so cute for Easter, I just don’t have the skill…I’m going to conquer you this summer CakePops…

Those second ones are just too cute! Love them!

March 20, 2013 09:34 AM
Lisa@hooplapalooza said...

all the work you put into the first glam bunnies and then the majority like the 2nd simpler ones. including me. isn’t life funny? :)

March 20, 2013 09:39 AM
Vicki Bensinger said...

Oh Angie I’m amazed at all the fabulous and creative ideas you pull out of your hat. These are darling! I have to make these.

One question – I noticed you just left an impression for the ears, so you don’t actually break into the cake to hold the ears in place? You merely stick them into the chocolate and that’s enough to hold them in place? I just want to do it right the first time. Thanks.

March 20, 2013 10:07 AM
Lantana said...

The first ones are just so amazingly cute, but I am in LOVE with the second ones. I dont like Sweetarts though, so i might replace them with something- any ideas?? I love everything that you do , Bakerella!!!!!

April said...

Oh my gosh! I thought the bunny pops with the candy corn ears were totally cute and awesome. I had to make them of course! And now, when I saw the first ones with the almond ears, I’m thinking too, too cute! Bakerella is too much, I HAVE to make those this year! But much to my surprise, she wasn’t finished. Bunny pops with carrots! You are beyond awesome!
You are the ultimate Cake Pop Queen that will never be dethroned! I bow to your GREATNESS!!

March 20, 2013 11:37 AM

Both bunnies are adorable! Did you use white candy melt for the nostrels for bunny #1. How did you do the bunnie feet for bunny #2 .

These are so adorable and creative!

March 20, 2013 12:49 PM
Seanna Lea said...

I love the carrot bunnies. They have that perfect combination of cute and looking harder to make than they actually are. The top ones are just more than I currently have time or energy for. Wonderful!

OMG the carrot one is adorable :D

Just amazing. Your attention to detail always makes your cake pops bounce out of the screen like no others. Brilliant!

Oh goodness, those are so darn cute! I love the carrot! And marshmallow feet. So perfect Angie! <3

Both bunnies are pretty darn cute … I think the bunny face is glamorous, however the carrot was genius! I need to find those ice cream cones!

You are truly amazing! Such an inspiration to us. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas.

March 20, 2013 09:19 PM
Bakerella said...

Thanks so much everyone! Glad you like these little guys.

Carlos – It happens when you press the mini marshmallow together.

Brigette – all of the above : )

PJ – I used luster dust for the blush on the cheeks

Soshell – a store called Cake Art near me. But I also added a link in the post to find some.

Lydia – I agree. But I can’t help but play.

Amy – Use them with a light touch without pressing down too hard so the candy residue doesn’t build up in the tip.

Michelle – I have some!


Lisa@hoopapalooza – That doesn’t bother me. I like to make them both ways. Hopefully the first ones will inspire people to try different ways to decorate.
If I were making them for myself, I’d probably make the cuddly ones too.

Vicki Bensinger – It was enough. You may need to hold the almonds up for a couple of seconds to let the chocolate set. But once it sets, you’d have to break them off.

April – Thanks!!!

Teri – I did. Just apply it with a toothpick. For bunny two, just press a mini marshmallow flat for each foot.

Marian – Hardly! I was actually thinking about your bunny yesterday. I want to meet him.

March 20, 2013 09:26 PM

So, so stinking cute. You are so clever.

Julie said...

Bakerella, can I PLEASE ask you about the Merckens candy melts? I am in Australia and we don’t have half the brands that you have, but we CAN get Merckens. I tried to make some green cake pops using Merckens green melts, but the chocolate doesn’t go NEARLY runny enough to get a nice smooth coating, like you have achieved with the white here. The consistency looks so much thinner in your pictures! Please help! Thank you!

March 21, 2013 06:52 AM
Natasha @ Smorish said...

Bakerella you are so creative! You put a smile on my face with each new post! These are seriously adorable. I especially love the second bunny- that face!

Oh my – these are so cute! I adore the 2nd bunny and am in love with the marshmallow feet. So wish I was brave enough to try these on my own. I have a feeling mine wouldn’t look quite as cute.

Man it’s been awhile since I’ve made cake pops. Don’t think I’ll have the time or patience to do the first ones for Easter dinner, but will definitely try the second. They are both so adorable. Thanks as usual Bakerella.

They are both equally amazing.. love them..

Love the almond ears they’re so amazing! Although since I’m nowhere near as good as you at decorating I should probably aim to do the second bunnies, more achievable for me! Can’t wait to try them :-)

Ms. Bakerella, you are absolutely amazing. I’m so inspired by you! Your bunnies are out of this world. I first discovered cake pops when I ran across your website and needless to say, I jumped on the band wagon. Now, I’m addicted! I’ve always been a very crafty individual. I make candy bouquets and gel candles, now I can add cake pops to my list. Thank you so much for unselfishly sharing an abundance of information to the world and may GOD continue to bless you! PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING!!!
