I have a problem.

Sheep Cake Pops [1]

I can’t stop making these pops.

Every time I finish making a batch, I tell myself that’s it. No more. I’m done. And, then the next thing I know, I’m buying more lollipop sticks. You know, just in case. The funny thing is, I have several bags of lollipop sticks. I buy them every time I see them. And in different sizes. I don’t do this with the other supplies, just the sticks. It’s weird. I can’t explain it. I guess I’m afraid there will be a stick shortage or something.

But, don’t worry, these are the last of the Easter Cake Pops. Promise. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

To decorate the sheep, I used some…
Sugar Pearls [2]
[3]Itty Bitty Heart Sprinkles [4]

Mini Heart Sprinkles [5]

Teeniny tiny. But HUGE cuteness factor.

Sheep Cake Pops [6]

Sugar pearls for the body and tiny hearts for the noses. The ears are brown rainbow chip sprinkles and the eyes are melted candy coating dotted on with a toothpick.

Licorice Bridge Mix [7]

I also used this candy mix (called Licorice Bridge Mix) that I found at the Fresh Market [8]. The buttons were for the head and the pastels, cut in half, were for the legs.

Sheep Cake Pops [9]

All in all… super cute. And also, super crunchy. I had never eaten sugar pearls before and thought they were too high on the crunch to cake ratio for me. But, if you like crunchy cake, you’re set.

Now, if you don’t like crunchy cake, then you might want to try these instead.

Bunny Cake Pops [10]

So, I lied. These are the last of the Easter Cake Pops.

Little bunny bodies. I about ran out of steam on these. I think you can tell by the effort I put into their faces. But, that’s okay, because their bottoms are so cute.

Bunny Bottoms [11]

Little bunny bottoms! Can you stand it? You want to bite them, don’t you?

Want to make some? Read the basic cake pop instructions [12] first and then use the decorating tips below for the bunnies and sheep.

And now, I’m outta here. I need to go buy more sticks. You know, just in case.
