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.
The cake pops I made were inspired by these pretty jordan almonds.
Well, mainly just the white ones.
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.
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.
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 .
Speaking of candy coating. I love the Merckens Super White . Try it some time.
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…
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.
But that’s not all.
I have another bunny to show you. A little bit simpler. Not as fancy but just as fun.
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.
Same ears, but a totally different lovable, huggable little bunny?
Hugs and hope you like these little guys.
