The Muppets Cake Pops
Who’s ready for Disney’s The Muppets Movie coming out later this month? Anyone going? The previews look so cute with Jason Segel and Amy Adams and of course all of the Muppets, too. Fun! Fun!
To celebrate, I made some Muppet Cake Pops. And I’m so excited about how they turned out.
In the past, I’ve contributed several cake pop designs and other treats to Disney’s website, family.com. You may have seen some of them. Mickey & Minnie, Winnie the Pooh, Mr. Potato Head and more. And this year, I had the opportunity to make The Muppets for them. I jumped at the chance. In the beginning I was only going to try to turn a couple of those popular little puppets into cake pops. But you can’t just make two Muppets. That would be wrong. So I made a handful of them. Five to be exact. And, trust me, it was hard to stop there. If I had the time I would have loved to try the whole bunch.
Ready to see which ones I made?
Good. Because I made these weeks ago and I can’t wait to show you.
Can I just start by saying that I’m still amazed by the endless possibilities that candies offer in helping create cake pops. Just when I think there is no way to recreate a character, I come across the perfect candy or sprinkle to pull it off. Like these green jumbo diamond sprinkles for instance. Perfect!
And that’s what I find the most fun. The challenge of working with existing candies to recreate them.
I love how the hats came out. And the ears. And the mouths. I used Reese’s Minis for the hats if you’re wondering. The tiny unwrapped ones in the small bag.
Fozzie was the first Muppet Cake Pop design I made. And I thought for sure I wouldn’t be able to make any of the rest look as good. But, I’ll let you tell me what you think.
Alright, who’s next?
That hair. Those eyes. I can’t help but laugh when I look at this picture.
He was probably the easiest to make, yet so effective in resemblance.
This is one of my top five favorite Muppet Cake Pops.
Wait… I only made five.
Yeah, I’m having a hard time choosing. Rowlf was pretty easy, too. My favorite part was figuring out how to make his droopy ears. It’s easier than you think. Links to instructions are below.
So that’s four Muppet Cake Pops. Four boy Muppet Cake Pops.
I think we need a little girl power.
Okay these are my favorite. I’m sorry Rowlf. And Kermit. Fozzie I still love you. Beaker… well, your hair is lovely, but Miss Piggy’s is prettier.
She came out better than I could have expected. Her hair and nose. Those cheeks and eyes. I kinda can’t believe how similar she looks. I think I’m most proud of her.
Kermie. Piggy. A pop-ular pair.
And here’s the whole group so you can see them all together.
Now, if you’d like to celebrate the movie and make your own Muppet Cake Pops or just want to see how they are made, the directions for each are on Disney’s website. Have fun!

Hope you enjoyed these.
Let me know which of the five should be my favorite. I really can’t decide.
If you can’t pick either, let me know which Muppet character you would have liked to have seen.
And don’t forget… The Muppets are in theaters November 23. Yay!
