These Pops Are Gonna Be Stars!

Remember these?
Cupcake Pops

Well, someone else likes them, too.
I’ll give you one guess…

I’ve been invited to be on the Martha Stewart Show on Thursday, April 3rd for Cupcake Week. (Crazy, isn’t it?!) So if you want to see how these cute Cupcake Pops are made, then tune in.

Who knew that starting a little blog about baking could turn into something so exciting! Not me, for sure. I just started this blog last October to learn more about baking and decorating cakes and also to play around with an idea for some baking related t-shirts. I feel like I have just scratched the surface of all there is to learn, so I never would have expected to end up in New York City next to Martha Stewart.

So all of you other beginning bakers out there, just get baking. You never know what sweet things it could lead to.

Updated instructions to come soon. But, in the meantime, Here’s a link to a few important things you’ll need to make these:

Ideally, try and find a 1.25 inch flower-shaped metal cookie cutter (it’s used to mold the cupcake shape before being dipped in chocolate), but if you can’t, then you can try this size and just make your shapes a little bigger.
1.5 inch flower cookie cutter by Wilton

Mini Crinkle Cookie Cutter (round) this kind works, too.

Lollipop Sticks

Wilton Candy Melts or Mercken’s Candy Coatings

Michael’s Crafts and Hobby Lobby carry candy melts, lollipop sticks, and if you’re lucky, the cutters.

Here’s a pic of some I have used before.

My husband and I hosted a social for some friends and family at a local cake parlor. I used your idea of the cupcakes to go along with our invitations. I was hoping to email you the pictures (it all turned out so cute) but can’t find one. How can I send you the pics. Let me know.

Damn! You used a cookie cutter? And I shaped all of mine by hand–still so very tasty, though! Congrats on the Martha appearance. I’ll have to set the DVR.

P.S. I wondered if you’d tried to make the cake balls (for lack of a better word) by using peanut butter instead of cream cheese frosting? Maybe if the p.b. were mixed with something to make it a little more workable? I’m contemplating trying it next time I make them (we’re big Reese’s fans) and just wondered if I could benefit from your experience. Congrats again!
