Easter Cake Pops, Part Two

The Easter Chick Cake Pops from last week were certainly cute. FYI, the all body ones with feet were hands down the winner. Actually it was a beat down. I almost feel sorry for the other chicks. Thanks everyone for your input. But, even with all their cuteness, I couldn’t let Easter pass by without trying my hand at some bunnies. So, here they are…

Easter Bunny Cake Pops

Check out those ears! I found some pastel “Bunny Corn” at The Fresh Market. SCORE! Yes, it really said that on the container. So cute. The name alone practically made me buy them, not to mention, as soon as I saw them, I thought … bunny pops. By the way, I have a new appreciation for candy corn. Growing up, these were always shunned at Halloween. I mean orange and brown candy never really appealed to me. But this year, I actually ate some at Thanksgiving when I made Turkey Cake Pops and was sold. I had always thought… assumed… they were hard candies. But they’re not. They’re soft little bites of sugar.

Bunny Corn

They’re actually good and taste even better in pretty colors! I can’t quit looking at them. They just make me happy!

Bunny Corn

Now, if you were really ambitious, you could make bunnies in coordinating candy corn colors. Blue bunnies, yellow bunnies, pink bunnies and even green ones. Not me. It was enough in pink and white. Those of you that have made pops before know what I mean.

I hope you can find the bunny corn somewhere, but if not, just check out a candy aisle near you and get creative for the bunny ears.

Bunny Cake Pops

I made these with a strawberry cake mix for convenience. Now, I’m not a big strawberry fan, but they were extra YUMMY!

Strawberry Bunny Cake Pops

Here’s what I used to decorate:

Pink Candy Melts
White Candy Melts
Jumbo Heart Sprinkles
Pastel Confetti Sprinkles
Pink, Blue & Black edible ink pens
Paper Lollipop Sticks
Styrofoam Block
Paramount Crystals
Pastel Candy Corn
Toothpicks

To decorate:

  • Shape the balls into a bunny head shape.
  • Dip in candy coating color of your choice and let dry.
  • Use the rounded side of a cookie cutter and cut of the end of the candy corn. Dip the end in a little bit of the melted candy coating and adhere it to the top of the bunny head. Hold in place until it sets. If your candy coating isn’t too hot, this should just take a few seconds.
  • Let the bunny heads with ears sit in the styrofoam block until all the ears are dry.
  • When dry, use a little bit of melted candy coating to glue the facial features on. Use a toothpick and dab a little of the coating in position for the eyes and nose and adhere the sprinkles.
  • When the eyes and noses are dry, use your pens to draw on the mouth. Then draw on the eye color and pupils.
    (Read the full instructions for making Cake Pops before you begin.)

Note: to get smoother covered pops, make sure your bowl is deep enough to submerge the entire pop. Try to dip it in one dunking motion and remove. If the chocolate is too thick, add some paramount crystals or some shortening to the melted candy coating to thin it out. Remove the pop, holding it in your left hand. tap your left wrist lightly with your right hand and rotate the lollipop stick over your bowl. The excess chocolate should fall off, smoothing out the coating at the same time. Also, make sure the coating surrounds the stick at the base to secure it.

So, there you have it… Easter Bunny Cake Pops. But, we can’t have Easter bunnies without Easter eggs. I mean they do go hand in hand, right!

Easter Egg Cake Pops

Stop the cuteness!

Easter Egg Cake Pops

Stop it, I say!

Sprinkles

Don’t even look at these sprinkles or you’ll be hypnotized. Hurry, close your eyes or the next thing you know, you’ll have Easter eggs popping up all over your kitchen.

Easter Egg Cake Pops

I warned you.

Here’s what I used to decorate:

Pink Candy Melts
Yellow Candy Melts
White Candy Melts
Pastel Confetti Sprinkles
Sanding Sugars
Light Corn Syrup
Paper Lollipop Sticks
Styrofoam Block
Paramount Crystals
Small Paintbrush
Toothpicks

To decorate:

  • Shape the cake balls into an egg shape.
  • Dip in candy coating color of your choice.
  • Let sit in the styrofoam block until dry.
  • When dry, use a small paint brush to paint on a thin layer of corn syrup in a line around the egg. Do one line at a time. Right after you paint on the syrup, sprinkle on one of the sanding colors until all of the corn syrup is covered. Use a bowl sprinkle over.
  • Repeat with varying designs and colors.
  • You could probably also do this with the melted candy color, but this time I was experimenting and tried the corn syrup.
  • For the confetti sprinkles, either dab a little bit of the candy color with your toothpick and glue on the sprinkle shapes or use a little bit of the corn syrup to act as the glue. The corn syrup will take a little longer to dry.
  • Dry completely.

The "bunny corn" ears are so adorable! Here's something else that will make you appreciate candy corn (I was never a big fan until trying this). Mix them with peanuts! Really! Oh, the sweet & salt…so good!

cute cute cute! these will be perfect for Easter for the kids! The bunnies I love but I think are too much for me. Maybe the eggs :-)

I’m so glad I came across your blog, I first saw the red velvet pops just recently and was so happy that I browsed through more.

These pops will be perfect for someone like me who doesn’t really bake. I don’t have to worry too much as to how the cake will look like since I’ll have to crumble them anyway lol.

Thanks. YOu are so sweet and generous!

So. I am in love with the Easter Egg Pops. I am definitely having an Easter Egg POP decorating party this year. That is WAY better than having a whole bunch of colored, hard-boiled eggs laying around afterwards!

… and I SWORE it would be at LEAST a month before I made more pops. Is there a 12-step program for this?

Holy Cow Pies!!!!! Those are adorable!!!!! I’d love to make them, but I’m not sure if my husband is ever going to let me near cake again, because…

I made cake balls last night for the very fist time!!! Holy cow those buggers are like a heart attack in a bite! I had my family over and made sure everyone had one (they’re a little on the health concious side) before I told them how they were made. Ok so my kid sister ate 5 (or 6) I don’t know if she slept last night. My husband is taking the rest with him to work today, because he doesn’t want me eating them…lovely man.

But seriously,they were so easy to make and they didn’t take near the amount of time I thought they would! I’m going to take these to every party I go to from here on out!

I love, love, love these! I’ll be making these for Easter!

I tried the chick pops(http://wittynamegoeshere.blogspot.com/) and they weren’t nearly as cute as yours, but they were yummy. I made the Christmas tree pops (http://wittynamegoeshere.blogspot.com/2008/12/christmas-tree-farm.html) at Christmas too and they were much easier.

How do you keep the tops of the pops from getting flat after you put the stick in (you know after the sit in the freezer for a few minutes)?
