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.

Can you leave the flower cupcake lollipops over night?

emma – Yes, once they are finished. You can leave them in an airtight container for several days.

I can’t wait to try this recipe! Do you think I could use a chocolate box cake?

I LOVE your cupcake pops!! One question: How did you make the letters on your “Martha” cupcake pops? What a cute way to personalize them! :)

Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks, I used some chocolate letter molds. You pour your melted chocolate in the cavity and then stick in the freezer for a few minutes until set. Then, take them out and remove from mold. Once, completely dry, I placed them on the cupcake tops right after they were dipped. I had to hold the letter for a little while until the chocolate firmed up enough to hold it. It was a little tricky.

Well, congratulations I can see you have already been on the show but I was wondering- you put these amazing cupcake pops on your blog and then go a call from martha because someone had seen them on here? Is that right? How awesome is that? Sorry I was just trying to understand how it all went for you. Well, keep up the great work.

Yep, I received a call out of the blue from a producer on the Martha Show. They had seen my pops over the internet and invited me to show them on the Martha Show. Believe me, I was as surprised as anyone. It’s still hard to believe.

i’m wondering if there is anyway to make these pops less sweet? maybe just add plain cream cheese to the cake instead of cream cheese frosting? can you help me out?

WOW! Was “directed ” to your site and PW’s through another friend (who made your pops for St. Patrick’s Day!) You both are AMAZING and I CAN’T wait to make these pops for my Munkees’ birthdays, holidays, friend/family/teacher gifts, etc.

Fantabulous blog!! I WILL be back and I will tell all my friends! :D

limvicky – no, just use a vanilla flavor frosting or some frosting that you like.

savoredlife – thanks a bunch and welcome!

Hi! I line in the Philippines and I saw you in the cupcake week of Martha Stewart. Your cupcake pops have inspired me to start a small business of selling cupcake pops here in the country. Hopefully, I’ll be the first one to sell them in coffee shops and stores around here. Thanks for the great idea. Also, i would like to find out what would be the best cake flavors to use for this type of cupcake.
