Hamm and Potatoes


Eeek! Eeeeek! Oink! Oink!

It’s Hamm… everyone’s favorite talking plastic piggy bank. Well, his head at least. I couldn’t resist trying these cake pops out in honor of Toy Story 3, which opens today… Yep. Today and I can’t wait to see it. Bring on the toys!


Hamm is fairly easy to make in cake pop form and only needs a few decorative add-ons to achieve his distinctive look. Plus, pigs are just plain cute, so I felt I had to try him.

Want to see my Woody and Buzz versions?


Okay, so I took the easy road here with tiny paper poster tags to carry out the theme. No cowboys or space rangers.
Me. Slacker. That’s my name.


But seriously… I was too excited to try this next cake pop I’m about to show you. And I think he may be one of my favorites to date.

I’ve been wanting to try him for a while and I couldn’t be happier with how he turned out. I even surprised myself.

So I guess you know what’s coming based on the title of this post.

You know…

Hamm’s spud bud from the movie …


I can hardly stand it. Look at the one on the right’s expression. He kills me.


Chocolate cake balls plus


Peanut butter candy melts plus


… all this stuff = PLAY. TIME.

It’s okay to play you know. I won’t tell.

We should all play a little more. Don’t ya think?


“Woohoo! I do.”




“Seriously guys, control yourself. – You know you’re all cake pops.”

“And, you know what that means.”


“Uh yeah, I’m starting to figure that out.” – Wise guy!


“Later, spuds… I’m outta here as fast as my candy feet can carry me. Who’s with me?”


Don’t worry… they didn’t get too far.


After a while… all that was left was just a paper memory.

Want to play with toys and cake? Jump on over to Disney’s to get instructions for all the fun. And thanks, Disney for the chance to have a go at these.


Hamm it up! Plus, you can also download the poster tags!


And, just curious… who’s going to see the movie this weekend? Anyone? Everyone?

Tasha said...

Those are STUNNINGLY good likenesses. Not sure I could watch the movie and then eat them. Poor guys. *applause*

I’ve been trying plain old cake balls lately (red velvet, then lemon with dark chocolate) and now my friends and family won’t stop gushing over me at every gathering. Thanks for making me a local hero.

Sues said...

OMG the Mr. Potato Heads!! You are amazing!! I can’t even believe how flawless each one looks. I’d be a major disaster over these. But you’re definitely inspiring me :)

Sylvia said...

YOU have a GIFT!!! My good heavens…I’ve NEVER seen ANYTHING so Adorable and Edible!!! It is hard to believe you can eat them. Glad you took a bite to show they are truly pops.

You rock, Bakerella!!!

June 18, 2010 05:40 PM
Southern Gal said...

We are!! These are so cute! Can’t wait to show my 8 yo. He’ll want me to make them, but I know better. I’ve tried your cake pop Easter eggs and they were not nearly as cute as yours. We’ll just look this time.

June 18, 2010 05:40 PM

Hmmm. . . I think I may have to attempt these in the not too distant future. We need to celebrate taking my little guy to his first movie.

bakerella said...

Thanks guys! I’m glad you like them.

Rosie – you’re sweet

Brian – Hey there!

Sylvia – sometimes I forget to do that, but these just screamed for me to bit his little potato cheeks.

Chrissy – these aren’t in the book. Non-character/generic themes are in the book.

I can’t get over what a whiz you are with these cake pops you create! Very nice job! I haven’t seen any of the Toy Story movies myself, but I still have to appreciate how cute these are. Mr. Potato Head was such a fun toy when I was a kid!

I made the Toy Story aliens cake balls over the weekend for my son’s 3rd birthday party, and I never got pictures because they went so fast. I even tinted the cake inside green! I just wish I had gotten some pictures!

Wouldn’t have expected anything less from you. I am so impressed. My little nephew is going to LOVE these for his toy story birthday. I guess I’m going to need to help his mommy (my sister) with the bakin’ and the decoratin’. Love it! :)
