Winnie the Pooh and Hunny, too!

IMG_8493

A couple of weeks ago, I made some Mickey and Minnie Cake Pops and I asked which ones you might want me to try next. Winnie was one of the front runners … lucky for me, since I was planning on doing him already. So, I’m glad a lot of you wanted to see the sweet little guy.

Some of the others you wanted to see ranged from Sponge Bob to princesses. Yo Gabba Gabba to Calvin & Hobbes. Which by the way, I didn’t realize Calvin & Hobbes had such a following. And yo… what’s a Gabba Gabba? Muppets, on the other hand I know. They were another one a lot of you want to see… and guess what, I have a really good version from a reader to post in the Pop Stars section soon. I mean really good.

I don’t know which characters I’ll try next, but these Poohs were fun to do. I love how the smallest adjustments to the cake ball shapes and choice of candies can change them into so many different variations.

IMG_8338

Of course, we start with making cake balls.

IMG_8357

If you need help shaping Pooh’s head, you can print or find an image of him to lay under wax paper. Then you can use it as a guide for the shape. Lollipop sticks can also be used to help shape his brow.

IMG_8362

Okay, here are a couple of the basic add-ons you’ll need. Brown rainbow chip sprinkles for the nose and coated sunflower seeds for the ears. Any light color will be fine.

IMG_8348

Practice making his head. Then you can place the candies on to use as a model and to see if your proportions are right.

IMG_0018

Yellow candy melts. A must unless you want to tint white candy coating with yellow candy color.

IMG_8371

Shape the heads, dip the coated sunflower seeds in candy coating and then attach them to the head to dry.

Once dry, dip the entire head in yellow coating. If you use darker color seeds, they might show through the yellow coating.

IMG_8380

Look how cute and happy he is. Too bad I’m going to chomp his little cheeks later.

Youc an draw on facial details with a black and red edible ink pen (Americolor Gourmet Writing Pens are great) and add a sprinkle tongue for an extra touch. Oh and the eyes are black non-pareil sprinkles. I’m not that good at drawing perfect little dots, so these worked out great.

IMG_8469

You can also use red candy melts to give Pooh part of his shirt.

IMG_8632

But you know Pooh’s not complete unless he has his hunny.

IMG_8620

Lots and lots of hunny.

These are pretty easy … purple and yellow candy melts, a black edible ink pen and a cartoon bear’s vocabulary.

This is insanely amazing!!!!!!
I tried to make cakeballs over the weekend, but the cake was mushy and had the texture of wet cake…gross. Can’t figure out what I did.

bakerella said...

Shannon – If they are too moist, just try adding less frosting. They are not going to be dry though. Don’t give up. Make them all the way through. Once you dip in coating they’ll be fine. And even better the second or third day.

Jill – one of those will be in the book and one of those will be on the blog. So you’re in luck.

Really cute! How in the world did you get those tiny non perels to stick? Did you use a tweezer to pick ti up?

bakerella said...

Shannon – not really, but I have these pool party pops you could start from

http://www.bakerella.com/pool-party-pops/

Stacey N. – dot on coating with a toothpick. The non-pareil will stick to your finger long enough to transfer and attach in place. No tweezers necessary.

I love pooh bear! They are so adorable, the honey pots are just so perfect along with cuddly pooh bear! Makes me want to hear him talk to Christopher Robin under the tree again.Nothing like best friends! Love what comes to mind when you see characters that seem to have been around forever, and you never tire of seeing them.

miss jonie said...

LOL I think your whole mind set must change when you start baking cake pops to have your wonderful vision of using a sprinkle as a eye ball and from your testimonies of doing regular shopping and suddenly happen to find the perfect white candy for eye balls and buying them as many as you can find ….. the chocolate wafers for mouths etc etc etc …Bakerella thank you so much for sharing your visions with us wanna -be bakers !….and I am still looking forward to your book

CC said...

So cute! And sometime down the road, if you get the notion to figure out a Tigger or Piglet to go with our friend Pooh, I’d be ever so grateful! :D

Yo Gabba Gabba, btw, draws a lot of comparisons to H.R. Pufnstuf, I suppose because both shows have life-size “puppet” characters that no one can quite explain, but my son seems to find Gabba a lot less threatening than I thought the other show was at his age. Gabba may appear a little strange at first, but it is really lots of musical fun!

Oh man they are so cute.

I wish that one day I can try some of your fantastic cake ball shapes on my own. Because here in Germany we don’t have candy melts and so I’ve to buy tons of food coloring ;)

Adorable! You captures Pooh’s shape and expression perfectly. My last cupcake ball attempt did not fair too well, but I’m getting the urge to try again. I think a little less frosting and a lot more patience is all this Bakerella groupie needs. :)

Have a great week Bakerella!

Cupcake ball so not popstar worthy post (yet): hehe :)

Okay, I’m a Winnie fan (who isn’t?) but I think it’s a tragedy he’s represented with honey, his terrible addiction, and not Piglet, his one true friend.

Come on, you know you wanna do Piglet.

Everybody loves Piglet.

(Ironically, this persuasiveness is just how honey calls out to Pooh.)
