Happy Halloweenie!

Sparky Cake Pops

Halloween is just a few days away, but I want to share one more cake pop creation with you guys. I made these Sparky pops for Disney’s new website Spoonful. They’re inspired by Disney’s stop-motion 3D animated film, Frankenweenie from Tim Burton that opened earlier this month. If you haven’t seen the movie, Sparky is brought back to life by his young owner Victor after a car accident resulting in monstrous consequences.



I loved the idea of making these cake pops in shades of gray since the movie was filmed in black and white. And I’m so happy with how they came out. It’s neat how these are all full color photos, but you can’t really tell since the candy coating is gray and the candies are black and white, too.

Making Sparky

A lot of times I’ll take on a character, but I don’t really know what it will end up looking like until I find the right candies to make the features. You can always use fondant to make features if you want, but using candies to help create the characters is more fun and challenging to me. It really is amazing all the creative possibilities a candy or sprinkle has.


And of course, edible ink pens come in handy too. Especially for dotting eyes and drawing all of Sparky’s stitches.

Black Sugar Pearls

Proportion is key to recreating a character in cake pops. And something as simple as a black sugar pearl may be all you need for just the right touch.

Silver Jimmies

And silver jimmies… ?

Frankenweenie Cake Pops

How about bolts – they go great with the black and white theme, too.

Sparky’s stare even looks kinda spooky.


Sparky! You are too cute… and it’s too bad I’m going to eat you.

Awe, poor Sparky. Can’t catch a break. But he sure is tasty.

Here are the full instructions on Disney’s website Spoonful so you can make your own.


Have a Happy Halloweenie!

And here are more Disney Projects I’ve worked on for their website.

I knew when I found these online that they were yours! You’re so original and creative, I can spot your pops a mile away…if there’s only one set on the net of a certain pop, and it’s AMAZING, I know it’s yours!
