Kisses to you


Big sweet kisses.

Literally lips made of candy, cake and frosting. Can’t go wrong with that.

I really hadn’t planned to make these. I was just playing around with some Valentine cookie cutters I recently bought from Hobby Lobby – one of which happened to be kissing lips – and they turned out kinda cute. Kinda funny… especially when you walk up to someone holding them in front of your face and pretend to kiss them. Or maybe that’s just kinda weird. You tell me. Anyway, I kinda like them, so I thought you might to.


Plus, I had these super duper cute paper straws that I wanted to use for the big day. (Thanks Sugar Diva) So I decked out my paper sticks in paper straws. Turns out you can slide them right on for an extra pop of color. (Pun intended.) Place a bit of melted coating in one end to help it stick to the stick because it’s not really a snug fit.


To make the lip shapes, follow the basic instructions for cake pops but make your balls a bit bigger. At least based on the cutter I was using, they needed to be bigger. They also need to be chilled and firm to make it easier to shape. Then all I did was form the cake ball to the inside of the cutter, making sure the corners of the lips tapered down. Who wants blocky lips? Blocky no. Curvy yes. After you’re happy with the shape, you can use a toothpick and/or lollipop stick to draw a separation line for the top and bottom lip. Make it pretty defined or the candy coating will coat and cover the line too much and you won’t be able to tell there is a separation. Remove the lips from the cutter and then reshape any hard edges with your fingers.

Then, dip away.


Big kisses and lots of love to ya,

HA HA I bought the same tin of cutters! too cute to pass up, especially at 40% off! I was sold once I noticed the hershey kiss cutter! LOVE THEM. With a 5 year old little girl they will come in handy more than just at Valentines!

They are adorable. When not eating them, I would constantly hold them up to my lips and go around scaring people. :)

The lips are so cute! My DIL & I made conversation heart pops for my Granddaughter’s Valentine party at day care, and then my son & DIL took the rest to their work, on V.Day. I made the VDay tags to put on the sticks, too, and once they were put into their little cello bags, and tied with matching ribbons – they looked soooo professional !!! Everyone loved them! Now we’re looking at what to make for Easter! I wish we lived closer to each other – so we could make them more often — we are 3 hours away from each other! Thanks for all your inspiration – bakerella!!

Haha the candy lip pops were so funny yet cute for V-Day! If you have some different, fun materials you can definitely change up the way you design sweets, and so the lip cookie cutters were perfect for creating these treats. In fact, I think it would be cool to place the lip pops onto a cake or even on cupcakes, instead of having them stand alone. These pics and recipes made me want to go out and buy some fun baking materials!

Hi Bakerella
I am from New Zealand and I love your website!! But I have one question…..We can’t get the 1 can cream cheese frosting (16 oz.) over here. I have tried making cake pops several times and everytime I make them they turn out too moist :( I really think that the cream cheese frosting I use (I make it by hand) isn’t right for them. Do you by chance have a recipe for the frosting that may work instead of the can of frosting? I know it may be a long shot but I am desperate to make these perfect!! Thanks so much!

These are very adorable. Because it is the end of February, a truly LOVEly month, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your inspiration. It was when I discovered your blog last summer that I decided to begin my own baking blog in hopes to further my dream of baking for the world! I am having a lot of fun writing about my creations and only hope to be as great as you one day! Thanks for what you do.

Hi, I’m from Australia and I just use whatever icing I feel like making – usually Swiss Meringue Buttercream as it’s super delicious! So what I’m saying is just try using a regular home made icing rather than a cream cheese based one and just add a couple of tablespoons at a time until the mix clumps together when your mixing. Using regular icing means you wont have to worry so much about refrigeration either.

Or if you really want the bought can of cream cheese frosting you can check out – they sell Duncan & Hines Cream Cheese Frosting (453g can) for AUD $4.59 and they post to NZ

Hope this helps :)

I recently made cream cheese frosting from scratch and it turned out great! I love how it tastes, you can use it on a lot of sweet treats, and it’s so easy and quick to make! All you need is cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract, and confectioner’s sugar! I’ll definitely be using this frosting for most of my future baking experiences.

To those wondering about Bakerella. She posted on facebook over the weekend that she had to cancel the book tour because she’s in the hospital. I hope I’m not out of place by sharing this info.

The Bakerella page on facebook is a public page. Simply google for Bakerella on facebook if you’re not a facebook member. You may need to belong to facebook to post, I’m not sure how that works. Anyhow, it’s a fun site, just like this one!

Get well soon, Bakerella! Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers!

I have been on your blog a few times and this is actually the first time that I decided to make something and honestly, I am truly glad that I made that decision(literally, no regrets). These are one of the best treats that I have ever had in my entire life. Thanks for the recipe and keep up the good work (also, you wouldn’t know where to buy the “lip” shaped cutters would you? I had to use some old circle ones that I had lying around lol).

Bakerella where could you be? Are you poorly? If so get well soon, i am getting so worried something bad has happened to you. We are all fretting are little baking socks off and have been waiting for you to get better, it must be really serious because it has been about 2 weeks and 3 days that you haven’t been on! I don’t know about everyone else but i have been checking everyday to see if your back and now I just had to see if anyone else had noticed and started looking at all the posts, are you really ill? I think that may be what people are saying to sooth their cooking brains but ive never known anyone to be sick for this long! Oh wait you have that disease don’t you? Is that why your ill? Oh please just come back I can’t sleep at night l can’t concentrate at school and ive moved to ‘cake wrecks’ until you get back! It’s just so lonely without you! Talking about ‘cake wrecks’ I think we all are without you, think of this as a little plead to you to come back (if you can) and I don’t mean to be pushy but JUST COME BACK! *sniff sniff*

I want a patriotic theme, and I was thinking about makng red velvet cupcakes, white cupcakes, and blue velvet cupcakes. Do you think it’s a good idea? (: I want to sell 1000 of them, so I’m going to start baking them 4 days early! Love your site!
Also, would it be ookay if My Booth said “Bakerella inspired recipes” under it’s name? (:

Carol said...

To our dear, sweet Bakerella -

Oh, we do miss you and only want the best. I am so sad to hear that you are still in the hospital. For someone with all the energy and fun the hospital must be like jail. Maybe we should host a jail break cake pop party all across the nation! Everyone who reads this blog would create a cake pop that helps represent a jail break (I’m thinking nail files poking out of the cake pop here)! Maybe all the good vibes and prayers from the baking and praying is what you need!

I just took on a new calling at Church, so am not in a place to coordinate something like this. So, I’m putting the challenge out there for someone else who might be so inclined to host a “Bakerella Cake Pop for Wellness” day! I would certainly make sure I joined in on the fun!

Obviously, I wish you well and will keep you in my prayers. I’ll be checking to see if we have a baking day!
