Snowman Cake Pops

I made these snowmen pops last year and just never got around to posting them. I think they are pretty darn cute. The black confetti sprinkles are perfect for two eyes made out of coal. The noses are orange sunflower seeds. The mouths are drawn on with a black edible ink pen.

The hats are made from regular and mini size Oreos.


Cookies make them even more awesome don’t you think.

Want to make some? Follow the basic instructions for cake pops and use the following to decorate:

White candy melts
Black confetti sprinkles
Orange sunflower seeds
Black edible ink pen
Regular Oreos
Miniature Oreos
Styrofoam block

  • Prepare the hats first. Separate Oreos and remove the creme center. The miniature Oreos can get a lot of crumbs stuck to the side of the creme center, so take a toothpick and scrape the surface off for a white edge.
  • Use some of the melted coating to attach the miniature Oreo to the regular size Oreo half and set aside.
  • Dip the cake pops and while the coating is still wet, attach the sunflower seed nose and the Oreo hat and let dry.
  • Then attach the confetti sprinkle eyes by dotting on a small amount of coating with a toothpick and attach the sprinkles.
  • Draw the mouths with the edible ink pen and let dry standing in a styrofoam block.

And voila … Snowman Cake Pops … or Snowhead Cake Pops … nevermind.

Now these are pretty cute like I said before… they remind me of what a snowman would look if I tried to build one in the yard. Not that we ever really get that much snow here. They are more like ice men than snowmen in the south. But this weekend I was thinking about them and I decided they were a just little too generic.

So I decided to try something a little more iconic.

Prepare yourself. These really are cute.


Stop it. I can hardly believe they are real and I made them.


The hats were made by tinting white candy coating with black candy color to get a dark gray. Then the coating was poured into these candy molds.


Now, if you want a more floppy hat look like the ones in the back of this photo, then try dipping Reese’s in the gray candy color.


Unwrap them first… but you knew that. And make sure the coating has cooled off or else it will melt the candies before you can attach them to the hat base.

Want to make some of these? These are more involved, but you can do it. I know you can because a lot of you have been sending me some fantastic pics of snowmen. With licorice scarves and Rolo hats. Keep em coming. Follow the basic instructions for cake pops and use the following to decorate:

White candy melts
White confetti sprinkles
Red mini M&M’s
Black edible ink pen
Red edible ink pen
Black candy color
Pink jumbo confetti sprinkles (You can find jumbo flower sprinkles and you can skip drawing the petals. I just didn’t have any on hand.
Blue confetti sprinkles
Orange gumdrops
Japanese somen noodles (you can also use pasta, it’s just a little thicker.)
Disc candy mold
Cordial cup candy mold
Reese’s (optional)

  • Prepare the hats first. Melt candy coating and add candy coloring until the desired shade of gray is achieved.
  • Pour coating in the molds and place in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
  • When completely dry, remove and attach the top of the hat to the base by using some melted candy coating.
  • Then attach a pink jumbo sprinkle to the hat using a small amount of candy coating. Next attach a smaller blue confetti sprinkle on top of the pink one. If you can find jumbo flower sprinkles, you can skip drawing the petals on.
  • With a black edible ink pen draw on the hat details if you like. But be prepared to suck up the ink in your edible in pens.
  • Now dip the cake pops in white candy coating. Before the coating sets, attach the hats to the snowman head.
  • Use a new block of styrofoam… one that hasn’t been used for cake pops before. Because you will want these to stand straight up due to the weight of the hat. If you use old styrofoam, the integrity of the holes may be compromised and they might fall over.
  • When they are completely dry, attach the nose and eyes using more melted candy coating.
  • Draw on the mouths and the eye details with the black edible ink pen.
  • Then cut some orange gumdrops into smaller shapes.
  • Use a toothpick to drill a small hole in the cake pop mouth.
  • Break noodles down into one inch pieces and insert one end into the gumdrop shape and the other into the mouth for pipes. By the way these will be extremely delicate, so space them out in the styrofoam.
  • Note: you can also drill holes into a wood block to guarantee straight holes.

Oh yeah…

Happy New Year!!!

You know I had to kick it off with cake pops, so hope you like em.

I love these! They are so cute! I tried making the oreo truffles a few days before christmas and I had a hard time getting them to be completely covered, and they lost their shape while i was dipping them…. they tasted great though. How do you get your to cover so nicely?

I have to say Bakerella, that it sometimes annoys me how amazing your creations look. I bake cakes as a 2nd job and you really inspire me to make my creations look as awe inspiring as yours do.

Both ways result in super cute pops! Been checking every so often tonight for your post…always look forward to it!!

ButterYum said...

I’m in awe of your creativity! I think the first ones look like the snowman in the Pixar Short film (the one stuck in the snow globe)…. and the second reminds me of the snowman from the Classic Christmas movie – Frosty.

No way! These frosty fellas are BEYOND adorable. You should put together a coffee table style book of your cake pops. I know I would look at it over and over and over.

You are awesome, Bakerella! I always tell my family that I would invite you and PW to my birthday party. If I was having one. :)

Amazing. They are just PERFECT. I love them. A genius, as always.

I also made mine last year but posted them some days ago. It is hard to believe but this season is almost over and my first cake balls (bizcobolas) are still something to do. I must solve it!!!

Have a perfect 2010, Bakerella.
Cheers from Spain.

Ok these are the cutest things ever!!! but i do have a question for you, I follow your blog and absoutley LOVE it….but over the hoilday i tried to make your cake pops and I was doing so good until i got to the point of covering the ball????? i was using melting candies and for some reason it look like one of those squezzy balls with the spikes on it, it wasnt pretty at all. I tried melting the candies some more to see if the hotter it got it would be dippable but nope that didnt work either……can you please please please tell me the trick to covering the balls so at ease???? thanks so much Shannon
