Kisses to you

IMG_6251

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‚Ķ 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,
Bakerella

Do you need an occasion to bake a cake?! Ha ha. I made a tuscan orange cake today (to celebrate Tuesday) that was delicious but missing one thing…a beautiful pedestal to put it on. The pedestals are absolutely gorgeous!!

p.s I love, love, love your site Bakerella!!

As I was searching for a cute idea for my daughter’s 8th birthday celebration – which can always be found here- she saw the pink pedestal and said THAT would be perfect for her pink themed party. Ha Ha…keeping my fingers crossed :)
Love this site.

Both of my parents (87 and 84 years young ) have birthdays in February so I love to have a dinner party for our family and bake something special for them for their birthday. I am very traditional and like to make things the way my mother has done in her younger years so baking a cake is very special and having them blow out the candles on a special cake stand is very very special! It also makes everything just seem perfect to have that special cake stand to enhance your cake! I love your site and it makes me very fuzzy inside to see all of the beautiful glass cake stands that enhance the beautiful cakes. It also makes it a great tradition to hand down to our daughters and granddaughters.

I’ve been reading your posts for maybe 2 years now and have mentioned your wonderful cake pops to my daughter, who has a 14 y/o and twin 6 y/o’s (a boy and girl) Ally, Sam and Jensen. Something kicked and she’s done some limited research and she’s had recently made her 1st cake pops. She’s pretty artsy/crafty and she’s still working to perfect them, but they were cute. The twins loved them.
In regard to cake pedestals, these are gorgeous. My most recent cake contributions were one chocolate/yellow checkerboard 3 layer and 1 1/2 dozen mini bundt lemon cakes for a church dinner. Mmmm, all were enjoyed. Think my daughter’s Easter Basket will have your “cake pops’ recipe book in it. Hope all is going well with you and that your Mom comes up with a thumbs up soon. Good Luck.

Lay those smackers on me! Heh heh. I love that you were able to make these after just being inspired by a cookie cutter and some fun straws – that is true creativity and inspiration at work. The usual hat tip over at OCP – More Kissing Cake Pops!
