Street Party

Sesame Street Cake Pops

Sesame Street. Pop Party. This Tuesday, November 10th is the 40th Anniversary of Sesame Street. Can you believe it. 40 years and the muppet mania continues. I’ve received no less than 1,299,347 requests for Elmo Cake Pops since I started turning my pops into characters more than a year ago. Okay, I’m exaggerating a little on the number. But seriously … Elmo has been one of the most requested pops. So I decided to finally put what’s been in my head on a lollipop stick.

And it didn’t hurt that just last week I found the perfect candy for Elmo’s ping-pong-like-eyes. Actually … all of their eyes.

Candy

Solid white. Perfectly round. Perfect size. And perfect. I found them at Wal-Mart. They were in the card and party supply aisle – not in the candy aisle. I stumbled on them and grabbed a bunch of bags and in different colors, too. It never fails.… As soon as I find something I like, it will be discontinued the next time I look for it.

But don’t worry. You can also use white m&m’s, white chocolate coated espresso beans or any other similar white candy you might be lucky enough to stumble on.

To make your own Sesame Street Cake pops, follow the basic cake pop instructions and use the following tips to decorate.

Elmo Cake Pops

Elmo’s noses are simply orange jelly beans. Elmo’s mouth is made of candy melts cut in half, and his eyes are drawn on with an edible ink pen.

Red Candy Coating

To decorate all of these characters, dip them in colored candy coating first.

Elmo in progress

While the coating is wet, attach the mouth and eyes and let dry. When the attachments are dry, you can use a toothpick to drizzle on more coating.

Let me stop here and tell you. This is time consuming. I wanted them all to have the effect of a furry coat, but you can certainly try another method to speed things up. For instance, they can just be smooth and you can pipe the mouths on with black candy writers or draw them on with an edible ink pen.

Elmo in progress

But I took the long way, since this was a special occasion. You’ll need to drizzle, dab, and dot all over the cake pop. Or at least all over the front of the pop. I won’t tell. Make sure to layer the coating around the mouth. You’ll need to build up a base around the edges to make it look more realistic and less stuck on.

Cookie Monster Cake Pops

Use the same technique for Cookie Monster. His mouth is bigger than Elmo’s so I tried to shape a lip this time with the candy melts.

Oscar the Grouch Cake Pops

Oscar. Let’s talk about Oscar. After I made the first two characters, I wasn’t completely happy with the mouths, so I tried a different technique with the Grouch and I think he liked it. Instead of one candy melt attached to the front, cut the candy melt in half and use both pieces to form an open mouth. This is a little harder because you have to re-shape the cake balls to somewhat in a C-shape (if you were to look at it from the side). This is so the mouth has somewhere to sit. If you try to make the mouth on the outside of the round ball, it won’t look right. Hope that makes sense. Don’t forget to build up the green around the mouth so it looks seamless. Again… these were some work.

Also, Oscar’s eyes are different than the others. His are inset instead of sitting on top of the pop. To achieve the look, cut the candy pieces in half and attach them. When dry, use a brown candy writer or chocolate candy coating and pipe on eyebrows. His tongue is a red jumbo heart sprinkle with the point cut and rounded off.

Heart Sprinkles

Here are the candy melts and how you can cut them for each character.

Candy Melts

If you can’t find dark chocolate melts, then chocolate coins might work. You’ll have to experiment with the sizes though.

Chocolate Candy Coins

I almost used these, but I stuck with the candy melts because I didn’t have enough coins.

Now for Big Bird. I love Big Bird.

Big Bird Cake Pops

I gotta tell you, when I started making these, I had no idea how I would pull this big guy off. First, I thought yellow sugar pearls or mini yellow m&ms, but none of those looked right for his feathers. So I used sanding sugar sprinkled on top after drizzling to make him look fluffier. His eyelids are decorated with a pink and a blue edible ink pen. His beak is candy corn with the end cut off to make it easier to attach.

Candy Coating

Dip the candy corn in yellow candy melts. But only if the candy coating is thin and fluid like this. By the way, this coating is Merckens and has nothing added to make it this thin. It was heated in the microwave on med-low in 30 second intervals and stirred in between. But if your coating is too thick, you can add some paramount crystals, shortening or vegetable oil to help thin it out. And if it’s not thin, then don’t try to dip the candy corn because it will just be a big glob and not pretty on Big Bird.

Beaks

Here are a few beaks. Let them dry on wax paper. Or just skip all that and give Big Bird an uncoated orange candy corn beak.

(Anybody tired yet? It’s almost too much to even read about doing. I think I need a nap.)

Cake Pop

Below, you can see what I mean with the different mouth variations.

Sesame Street Cake Pops

Aren’t they just the cutest. But something is missing. Cookie Monster is smiling, but he’s not happy. He needs cookies.

Yes. Cookies. Coooooookies!

Teeny-tiny cookies

Tiny… little … itty-bitty chocolate chip…

Cookies

Sesame Street Cake Pops

There… much better!

Cookie Monster Cake Pops

Stop it. I can’t stand it. Head exploding. Cute overload.

Cookie Monster

Here you go. This is for everyone that likes it when I bite into one of these. Poor little Cookie Monster.

Now, a lot of you have sent in photos of your own Elmo Pops. I just haven’t done a great job of keeping track of them all. If you’d like to re-send, maybe I can do a little slideshow or something to show them off. Or any other Sesame Street ones you may have done.

Hi!
Now that you’ve done my 3-year-old Goddaughter’s obsession (she loves Big Bird and affectionately calls him “Quack Quack”) please do something for my 6-year-old Goddaughter’s obsession: Hannah Montana! It would be awesome to see a Hannah Montana cake pop or cupcake or cake themed treat! I know many moms and daughters alike would thank you!

Michelle said...

You are truly an inspiration! As a SAHM and PT admin freelancer, I have now found my true passion. I discovered your site about a month ago and have been making all kinds of cake pops ever since. In fact, my sister-in-law just ordered 300 for the sweet table at her upcoming wedding! Any suggestions on how to display this many, and how long can the balls (pre-dipped) be refrigerated and made (post dipped) beforehand yet still be fresh enough for a wedding? Thanks for any insight!

For a fur effect, you might be able to add shredded coconut to some of the icing mix? Not sure if it would work, it might be too chunky. I’ll have to try it and get back to you!

Chelsea – they’ve both worked about the same for me.

Ashley – they last for several days and you can store them in an airtight container or wrap them in treat bags with ribbon and keep them in styrofoam on the counter

Anonymous – read some of the comments in the cake pop posts and I think you’ll get some tips.

My 4-year-old were browsing your site the other night. We attempted some Easter cake pops for Easter and they were fun and tasty but not as pretty as yours (but fun for my 4 and 7-year-olds.). Anyway, Ella really admired your Sesame Street pops and then said, “Mama, now show me the Wonder Pets ones!” Hee-hee.

I made Elmo pops for my sons 2nd birthday a couple of months ago, I don’t know how to post the pictures. They were pretty cute , I tried icing for the nose, didn’t turn out as well as the jelly beans- good idea. Mine also looked a little furry, but that was just an accident.
They were cute & a big hit!

I am making a hand made family game pack for my daughters school. They were needing raffle prizes and one of the games I”m making is just a picture block puzzle set for really young ones. I needed some generic pictures since they won’t be for anybody I know and wondered if I could use a few of your pictures of cake pops. They would make the perfect puzzle pictures for a toddler!

Hi! I saw your site a few months ago and knew that I would want to try to make these for my daughters birthday. I am getting the courage and keep reading over and over and over again what I will be doing. My question to you is, how far in advance can I make these if her party is on a Saturday? 2nd how are they stored? Do I keep them stuck in that thing and keep them uncovered in the fridge til the party?? Thanking you in advance =)

Thank you for the inspiration! I made the Elmo ones for my daughter’s 1st birthday. They were a big hit!

Just wanted to add that I went to a baking store in my area (store is in Cranford,NJ for whoever is close by, just google baking stores) and they sold edible eyeballs there. Real cheap and such a time saver. Gonna attempt them tonight. 10pm kids are sleeping and the night is young lolol

I was reading through these after spotting your Mickey’s & Minnie’s (Mouse). I thought of a way to make fur for those that didn’t want to tackle the toothpick with candy melts technique, you could food-colour coconut and sprinkle it over the cake ball dunked candy melts.

I am so going to try the Elmo ones for my daughter’s 2nd birthday! I wonder if these could be done as Curious George?

Just wanted you to know, I made these for my daughters 2nd bday party and they were DELICIOUS!! Everyone loved them! I only made the Cookie Monster & Elmo ones. They were very time comsuming (plus it was my first time) but totally worth it in the end =) I wrote in a previous post that I was concerned about making them before hand, I made them 2 days before and kept them in an airtight tupperware and then on the day of the party I stuck them in a foam block. I found eyeballs (edible) at a local baking store and didn’t used jellybeans for Elmo’s nose but orange, flower shaped sprinkles I found at the supermarket. I can’t wait to make them again in a different theme. Thank you for posting such great details, step by step on how to make these =)

Are you absolutely sure you don’t want to do an order for me?? :)
These are the cutest things I have come across, and I am doing my daughter’s first birthday party, and would need 40 Cookie monsters… I have had the most difficult time finding cookie monster things. Most everything is either Elmo or Sesame Street, but my daughter loves cookie monster, so I was sent this by a friend, and I’m wondering if there is a way to talk you into making them for me. :)
