Veronika said...

Thanks all and a big congratulations to Donna and Alejandra! I learned to make cake pops from Bakerella’s website and I also recently bought her book. It’s great!! I hope your baby shower will be a memorable one. Fingers crossed for Donna, but if it turns out to be a boy, you can also change the bonnet color to blue…I did some recently for a friend’s son’s christening. :0)

BonniesCouncil said...

Argh! Veronika – where did you source such white coating in Oz? I’m in Victoria and can’t find anything but compound chocolate to use which unfortunately is such an awful cream colour… Surely not titanium dioxcide a la Adriano Zumbo from Masterchef?!?

November 30, 2010 02:55 AM

Mel G said...

I second BonniesCouncil…..what did you use to coat them in? I’m dying to try them for myself but so far I’ve been stumped as to what to use instead of “candy melts”. Or have you found somewhere to buy candy melts???

Stefsa said...

BonniesCouncil (and anyone else in Vic, Aus.) – there is a shop in Melbourne called Cake Deco – it’s in one of the arcades opposite Flinders Street Station. It’s small and crowded (I was climbing over boxes in the shop) but worth a look. They stock candy melts and are cheaper than Spotlight. They’ve got a website do and do mail order if you can’t make it to the store.

Deborah Branda said...

Veronica, these are adorable! I’m going to attempt them for a baby shower I’m giving on Saturday. How did you attach the bonnet to the stick? did you fold it over & hole punch it or just leave it normal & make a hole in it?

December 9, 2010 11:41 AM
25
Veronika said...

Deborah- hope this is not too late…I didn’t make any hole in it… just twist it around the stick and secure with the ribbon.

Sandra M. said...

Love these so much I want to make them for my son’s baptism. Just want to know your thoughts on how to make them more boyish? Blue bonnets and ribbon but with no bow what do you suggest to make them look like baby boys? I love the pink cheeks and don’t know if they will work for boys.

December 28, 2010 12:51 AM

Veronika said...

I use edible ink pen to draw the faces. Sandra- definitely will work for baby boy. I have made them for a friend’s son baptism as well. Blue bonnet, blue ribbon, pink cheeks, and a dummy instead of a bow. Just use a small round candy for the dummy. Have fun making them and congrats!

Sandra said...

These are too cute! Great job! I just had a question about drawing on the pops with the edible pens…I attempted to draw on some that I made and the pen would not draw! Where my candy melts too oily? What do you use to thin out your candy melts? Please help!

January 2, 2011 05:48 PM
33
Veronika said...

Bakerella uses paramount crystal to thin out the melts but I don’t use that. Don’t even know where to source that in Australia. I use the edible ink pen that Bakerella uses as well (americolor). I tried other brands and they don’t seem to work.

January 4, 2011 12:31 AM

Melissa Terry said...

Veronika,Pardon my ignorance, I had a question in regard to replacing the bow with a dummy. What exactly is that? Sorry, I love your pops but will be making them for a boy and was curious what you meant in this reference. Thank you so much for your help!!

January 7, 2011 12:19 PM
35
Veronika said...

So sorry… We use the term dummy in Australia for a pacifier. That’s what I meant …to put a small round candy on the mouth to look like the baby is sucking on a pacifier. Hope this helps :0)

Tiffany said...

I would love to make them for my baby shower at the end of the month. Can you please gimme the details on how you did it!! I have been wanting to try to make pops but haven’t gotten to yet. Any hints or tips you can give me would be greatly appreciated! I am gonna attempt to make a few next weekend. Thanks!! They look AMAZING!! I LOVE THEM!

Veronika said...

Hi Tiffany- I learned making cake pops from Bakerella’s website. I don’t think I can explain it better than her. She also has a video on how to make them on you tube. It’s very clear. just follow her instruction… very easy. Have fun and congrats!

Veronika these are so cute. I read in one of your earlier posts that you made a “boy version.” Did you take pictures? Are you able to post them? I would love to make them for a baby shower but am more of a visual person. Thanks!

Hi Clarissa, thank you! I use choc chips for the ears. Of course you can order if you’re in Sydney? Just send me an email if you’re interested to place an order. The address is on my fb page. Thanks Clarissa. :o)

Absolutely adorable! I tried using the Wilton cake writer edible pens with no luck. It is as if the color won’t adhere to the cake ball. I’d love a suggestion of how you did yours.

donna said...

These are adorable but it has been an absolute nightmare to make for me. The Wilton’s writable marker does not work on the face. It took me forever to icing two hearts together. It is a lot of work and they don’t come out perfectly round either. It has taken me hours.

CupcakeKiller702 said...

Americolor pens DO write well on the candy coating. I use them. I recently spotted bright white candy melts at the craft store. My problem is getting the coating smooth, and shiny. White chocolate, and candy melts always seem to get gummy and lumpy on me quickly, even though it hasn’t been over-heated. I don’t have much luck with white at all.

Susan Bickel said...

I tried making these cute babies, but didn’t have great luck. I am ordering the americolor pen, but I too would like to know what size and how did you attach the bonnets?

September 22, 2011 07:48 PM

April said...

So once the cake pop is complete and dipped you just put the muffin cups behind the pop and attach underneath with a ribbon? How does it not fall off? Where do you find the pen to decorate the face?

Kathy – look for Mercken’s super white. You can find it online.

Veronika said...

Hi all
I use americolor pen and regular size cupcake baking cup. To attach the bonnet, put the back of the baby’s head on the baking cup and fold the baking cup so it covers the neck part and then secure with a ribbon. It takes a couple of practice to get it neat and tidy. :-)

January 15, 2012 11:51 PM

Veronika said...

Michelle: you can use 2 heart shaped sprinkles to make a bow.

Wendy: it could be to do with the temperature of the melted chocolate. I don’t use choc thermometer but I just don’t let them get too hot. Good luck! :-)

msfood said...

This are adorable…I am making them for a shower in April. Where did you get the little pink candies for the bow? And for the dummies/pacifiers? What kind of candy are they both? I’m assuming you just attached them as soon as you coat the cakepop so it will stick?

What size are the cupcake liners…they look like a mini size…

Thanks for your help.

Veronica: I am practicing making these adorable pops to bring in to work when my first granddaughter is born. I have purchased the Gourmet Writer decorating pens which makes a huge difference (previously tried using the Wilton pens with no luck). Your picture makes the color you used on the face to be grey rather than very black. How did you accomplish that? I have checked on line and don’t see any “grey” pens by Gourmet Writer.

Thanks for any help you can give!

It’s me again. Also interested in how you displayed the cake pops in the picture…did you put styrofam in a decorated shoe box and slide the stick all the way through the styrofoam?

JANICE said...

For those in the U.S., I purchase Plymouth Pantry Almond Bark readily available at Walmart at least in the Midatlantic region! It comes out perfectly white and is slightly thinner than the melts. If it gets too thick, especially when you add color, I use a few drops of vegetable oil or even Crisco to thin. I had also purchased the Wilton color writers, but they are useless. I can’t find the Americolor in my area, but I’ve seen them online so I will order. I am attempting these cute baby girls this weekend! Can’t wait to see how they come out!

I love these cake pops. Have a question. Do you know if these would hold up being shipped as a gift to someone? i am having a virtual baby shower for my step-daughter who works for the US embassy and is stationed far from her family. I would like to send a gift to each participant within the US but wondered if it would withstand being shipped. Any ideas?

Absolutely love these. My grand-niece is being christened in a couple of weeks and I want to try making these. I’ve done cake pops before and they’ve come out pretty good. My once oncern is how to make the pink cheeks, are they drawn on or iis it pink choocolate?. How are the cheeks done? If they’re drawn on, what shape did you drawn?

Veronika! These look absolutely delectable, God bless you and the little one!! To everybody who does not have the paramount crystals available…I use olive oil in my chocolate, and it thins fine. The only thing is, you might want to temper your chocolate first because the oil makes it rather soft. Just drizzle in enough oil for the choc/coating to be thin enough for your preference, but don’t overdo it…if too much oil gets in, salvage the mixture by simply adding more melted chocolate. Voila! ^_^

@BonniesCouncil, you probably aren’t reading this any more, but if you are, I’ve got good news for you! I also live in Victoria, Australia and I couldn’t find lollipop sticks for candy melts or anything! Then one day, I went to a store called Variety SuperStore, in Strathdale, and they had everything you can possibly need to make cakepops and more! So if you are ever around Bendigo, go to the Strathdale Shopping Mall, and you can get some!

Hi Veronika!! I think these are absolutely adorable and as a cake popper I am saddened to see someone using your image as their own on their baking Facebook page. Here is the link if you would like to rectify the problem.

These are absolutely adorable! I have started making cake pops as a hobby & giving them away as a present.. I’m still learning how to make it perfect but this one looks so perfectly moulded & coated. Just wondrin’ how did you make those pink cheeks & also what sort of edible pen did you use to draw the face & hair?…also for those looking for cake pops products in Victoria, you can buy it in matchbox stores or sweet box lolly shops in Westfield or online @ http://www.cakesaroundtown.com.au
