Wedding Cake Pops

Wedding Cake Pops

I’ve received a ton of requests for wedding cake pops so I thought today would be a good time to show you some. Here’s a simple wedding cake shape that you can use and decorate as you desire.

Read the basic instructions for making cake pops, and then use following directions to turn them into miniature wedding cakes.
Wedding Cake Cutters
After you have rolled out the cake balls, use two different size cookie cutters to make the shapes. You can use small cutters like these to shape the cake and frosting mixture.

They’re not too big … the round cutter is about 1 1/2 inches wide and the crinkle cutter is about 1 1/4 inches wide.

Press one cake ball into each mold until the mixture fills up the cookie cutter shape. Remove any excess and you can reuse.

Wedding Cakes

Remove mixture from the cookie cutters carefully so the shape stays intact and place on a wax paper-covered baking sheet.

When you have your shapes made, melt white candy coating per the directions on the package. Apply a thin layer of coating to the bottom of the smaller shaped cake, leaving the center uncoated. (This will make it easier for the lollipop stick to be inserted.)

Then place the small layer on top of the larger layer, coating side down. Press gently and let the candy coating set like glue. Place cakes in the refrigerator to keep chilled before dipping.

When you are ready, dip the tip of each lollipop stick in coating and then insert into the bottom of the cake about halfway. Then dip the wedding cake pop in a small narrow bowl of melted candy coating so that you can dip and remove the entire cake in one motion.

To make sure the coating is fluid enough, you can add some shortening or paramount crystals to help thin it out.

Remove from the candy coating, tap off any excess gently and place a jumbo heart sprinkle on top before the coating sets.

Let dry in a styrofoam block and then attach decorations using more melted candy coating like as glue. You can use sugar crystals, confetti sprinkles or even pipe on details like dots or swirls with more candy coating. You could really go all out with different decorations and colors.

Jumbo heart sprinkles

These jumbo heart sprinkles work out great for the top of the cakes.

Just look how simple and sweet these are.

Wedding Cake Pops

You could give these cake pops for:

  • An engagement party
  • A wedding shower
  • Wedding favors
  • You could even propose with them

Imagine how cute they would be with some sweet little tags.

Okay, forget imagining… let me just show you.

Let’s be honest…I’ve been obsessed with your blog for a while now. I LOVE this post. First of all, I have lately been on a small (OKAY, fine, LARGE) Cake Pop Kick. I keep trying them and I have all different colors of melting chocolate/candy to dip in. When I saw this post, I just about fell off my chair. I LOVE ROMANCE. My husband is super sweet and romantic, and he proposed in a really fun way. Melissa will NEVER forget what a romantic man she has. Although, Rich, you sure are setting your standards high. What are you going to do to top this? :) CONGRATULATIONS….and thanks Bakerella…for allowing us to be voyeurs into your awesomeness!!

I made some!! It was my first attempt at cake pops and I think they turned out really cute. (I put pictures on my blog) I’m excited to make more this weekend.

I got some edible pens and they DO NOT write on the cake pops. I tried to make the ghosts and it just wasn’t happening. Any tips?

Oh- How beautiful! I made chocolates for my wedding guests, had I seen these, they might of got cakes too. But that was 6 years ago. Where were you then ?
Now I’m into other things revolving around 2 & 5 year old boys. So I made your cake pops for my 2 year olds birthday. They looked like Elmo. So cute! Red candy coating & big eyes. I tried usung orange icing for the nose & it just kept running. And I ran out of the candy coating, so I finished with red royal icing I had for the # 2 cookies. That worked too, & they were very tasty ! Everybody loved them.

Hi. These and all your creations are adorable. I saw these and just had to go out and try to make some. I rushed around yesterday and today getting supplies… making due with a variation on cup molds but I think I got the wrong frosting upon reading posts…I got HOMESTYLE cream cheese and is came out sticky. Tastes good so gonna scoop, chill n dip then try again tmrw. May be less frosting or go get Whipped. ADVICE?!

Kellie said...

Well I chilled them and as long as they are chilled I can work with them in cups but not on a stick so much so far. The dipping part works fine. Hope they taste okay done since so sticky. I am determined because I want to do favors for my niece’s wedding in cake bites in some sort of beach theme.

Hi bakerella, stores like Cake Art Party Store do not exist in France, & I really NEED to make all your cake pops recipes!!!! I love your work so much, & I was so glad to do them!Do you know where I could find these coloured chocolate barks & others here? Or is there someone, a realiable person, who could receive my order in the USA & send it back in France?

Great news, Bakerella amazing what you have done. One question, this Rich guy looks like he is in his 30′s, at that age how was he dating this Mel girl for 6 years and she still stuck by him (plus she bakes for him all the time). People are saying he is great, I think she is the catch. Rich, this is not a game, make sure you treat her right.
