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.

Here goes.

Kermit the Frog Cake Pops

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!

bakerella_-1

And that’s what I find the most fun. The challenge of working with existing candies to recreate them.

Fozzie Bear Cake Pops

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.

bakerella_1805

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?

bakerella__2856

Beaker Cake Pops

That hair. Those eyes. I can’t help but laugh when I look at this picture.

bakerella_2957

He was probably the easiest to make, yet so effective in resemblance.

bakerella__3063

Rowlf the Dog Cake Pops

This is one of my top five favorite Muppet Cake Pops.

Wait… I only made five.

bakerella_2990

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.

Piggy Power.

bakerella_3290

Miss Piggy Cake Pops

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.

bakerella_3227

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.

bakerella_3536

Kermie. Piggy. A pop-ular pair.

bakerella_3419

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!

Muppet Cake Pops on family.go.com:

Kermit the Frog Cake Pop Instructions

Fozzie Bear Cake Pops Instructions

Beaker Cake Pops Instructions

Rowlf the Dog Cake Pops Instructions

Miss Piggy Cake Pops Instructions

And don’t say you can’t do them. It’s totally possible. Check out these Muppet variations from Pop Star Vivy in California and these from Pop Star Kerry in Colorado if you aren’t sure.

bakerella_-3

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!

Anonymous: Freeze your pops.

Also, write on the pops after the chocolate is set but BEFORE condensation forms. IF there is condensation or if they are wet at all, they won’t write. Good luck!
