I can’t believe it. A ton of you made Bakerella Cake Pops for Easter. I didn’t expect so many of you to run out and do it. (The chicks, the bunnies, the eggs and even the sheep!) And you did a fantastic job at them too I might add. I feel like a proud parent excited to hang their children’s artwork on the fridge or something. Not that you guys are like children, but you know what I mean. I’m just, just so proud for you all because I know you must have made a lot of people smile.

Now, let’s take a look at a few of them in this sweet little showcase.


These cute little bunnies are checking each other out. Yay, Stephanie! You did it.


This chick would win a staring contest. I didn’t know a cake pop could be so intense and so cute at the same time. Courtesy of Chelsi.


Here are some really cute bunnies with chunky ears. Jessie is getting creative and I like it.


Chicks, chicks and more chicks from Christie.


Julia from gets the award for most ambitious. She tried her hand at all four.


Inspired by the chicks, Amanda made a bunny version.


And we can’t forget chicks without sticks. These almost look like they’re ready for the bathtub. Great job Summer!


And an Egg-cellent job on these colorful baskets from Leesa.


Alison & Sherry know how to make some smooth chicks. And check out those flowers peeking out in the back. Cuteness!


Kate & Kelsey made these cutie-patootey cake pops.


Melanie made some eggs, too. Or did she just hollow out real eggs and put them on a stick. Hmmm. I wonder.


Kati even made some cute chicks with little easter bonnets.


I’m loving the color on these with their cute little bunny faces. Terrific Terry!


And check out Kerry. She gets bonus points for the Peep-achu!


These final four are from Melissa. Great job!

Way to go bakerellas! Thank you so much for sharing your photos with me and I hope you don’t mind me sharing them with everyone else.

Feel free to link to yours in the comments if you made them, too. I didn’t do a great job keeping track of all the photos, so I’m sure I missed some that were sent to me.

I tried to do cake pops too – but I won’t send in the pictures! I couldn’t find most of the things needed out here in Hawaii, so I improvised with less than stellar results. At least they taste good!

Oh, I wish I had pictures of mine! We made easter eggs with sticks (WAY easier than just balls…the sticks made it so easy!) and decorated them with my younger cousins – super cute and fun! Next time I make them, I’ll take photos :)

Aaw, now I wish I’d taken more pictures of mine! I had to improvise some things, too – didn’t have paper sticks or sanding sugar, but I think my Easter Egg Cake Pops turned out okay… they certainly disappeared fast enough!

SHHHHH!!! My husband is still wanting me to make these, and I’ve told him that Easter’s over so I can’t. I can’t wait to see some black cats for Halloween, though… ;) Or maybe I should search for past blogs for these?

Oh, this gives me hope. I now know it it possible for a gal like me to make a cake pop. I have promised my almost 4 year old I will make the Hello Kitty cake pops for her birthday. Now, if I could just find the black edible marker.

Barkley's Mommy said...

Have mercy! The pops are wonderful, but your reference to “chicks without sticks” made me laugh so hard, I woke up my husband. (He didn’t think is was as funny as I did, though!)

I’ve re-created your 14-layer cake ( link to ) with great success, and will soon attempt cake pops. You’re truly an inspiration, Bakerella!

We made some chicks and had fondant cupcake night. I considered keeping some chicks to put on a cupcake, but they didn’t make it that long.

I'm definitely not crafty enough to make cake pops but my husband did try his hand at the Peep-achus! He wasn't very happy with them as we couldn't find edible markers that were fine tip (short of time!). But I still think he did a great job!

I made your bunny cake pops. My girls called them bunny bites. We arranged them on a styrofoam tree and served it as my daughter’s birthday cake. She was thrilled and renamed them bunny bites. We have also enjoyed your cupcake bites. I’m so glad you are so clever! Thank You!

I made the eggs, but I won’t send pictures! They are certainly harder to make than they look. Smooth icing didn’t happen at my house. Don’t know exactly what the problem was. It was a fun project though and my kids loved them no matter what they looked like.

I HAD BLIND CHICKS! My food-safe-edible-grade ink would NOT write on the waxy outer-coating (the candy melts). What brand of food-safe marker did you use? We just served the chicks SANS EYES.

April 15, 2009 04:17 AM
Ashley said...

I made some chicks too! My biggest problem was getting the balls to be perfectly round! Mine were all weirdly shaped for some reason, so even though the candy coating was pretty smooth, they weren’t round. They still turned out pretty cute though. :)

momof4sweetsisters said...

Mine turned out really crummy…. So here’s my question? About 1/2 an hour or so after I dipped and decorated the chocolate would crack. I put pics up on my blog, if you have time for a peek.
I want to try again, but I any help would be appreciated. I did use wilton dye pens which were pretty cruddy. I also used there melts. I’m a bark girl, but couldn’t find any! Everyone was making pops. So cute!

I made the cute chicks and gave them out. I got a text from my neighbor saying, “those chicky snacks are off the chains.” He loved them, but I decided from now on, I’ll call them chicky snacks too.

Cute idea to sell pops for a cause.

My little boy had cancer, so we are involved in organizations that help with pediatric cancer research.

I made some chick pops too…this time for Easter, but Ill put it on my list to make some gold ribbons to help kids beat cancer

Here are my chicks..thanks for the great idea!

i also made some cakepops. easter eggs. they were the cutest thing at our easter brunch, but i’m wondering if i did anything wrong with adding the frosting. they were quite wet…even after sitting in the fridge for a day! i think they still tasted good, and so did the kids, but my husband wouldn’t go near them (although he thought they looked good!) :)

is there a trick…i’m thinking that maybe i should’ve let the cake cool 100 percent, so that the icing doesn’t get runny?! does that make sense…i’d love your input. thanks so much

ps i LOVE LOVE LOVE what you do. i can’t believe how creative and adorable they all are!

so I was trying to resist not to write any comment – just follow you without you to know (for no reason)… but I really must tell you this: your work on these small cake balls is just fantastic!!!! You are really a genious – I love the details! …I love baking too just don’t have all the necessary “decorating” stuff to do it “your way”. But believe me – you are famous also here in Greece (especially on Rhodes island) – I show every friend of mine your little tiny cakes… and everybody loves them!

My daughter and I made the chicks on Saturday. We made close to 50, and they took almost 4 hours! But were stinkin cute and a big hit at Easter. I had my nieces and nephew all jacked up on sugar! I’ll post pics as soon as my daughter gets them off the camera. But they were a lot of fun. Very time consuming, and now the smell of the candy makes my tummy flip a bit, but I’d definitely make them again. Thanks so much for the tutorial! We had a blast.

Ok, I had to make them too- just too cute not to! Is there a trick to keep them from falling off the stick when dipping them? I keep them in the freezer as I dipped around 5 at a time before they got warm and started falling into the coating- lots of “mistakes” for me to taste test :) Thanks Bakerella!

Oh, I made Easter cake pops, you bet! And now there are many family members wanting to give them a try! The chicks on sticks are my favorite. (I’m going to try making baseballs and Wayne State cupcake bites for my niece’s ball team/
family potluck this weekend.)
*I had a bit of trouble with the coating cracking on some of them after they cooled. My husband thinks the cake inside expanded or something once they warmed up from the freezer. Did I pack the balls too tightly?! Ever have any problem like this…Any ideas?!?!?

I made chicks and eggs! I was going to attempt to document the process, but once I got started I couldn’t stop and so pictures fell by the wayside. So much fun! And they’re soooo cute! Friends had a dessert buffet to celebrate Easter (what can I say – I have some great friends!) and they were a hit. I heard a lot of “they’re almost too cute to eat… almost.” And then they were gone… every last one of them! I think I may have to start making them for every holiday!

I would make them if only I could, but you can’t get candy melts or candy corn in England, and I’m not too sure about heart sprinkles and rainbow chips either. *sigh*
I’m just gonna have to order a big stash off the net and make a massive batch of cake pops in the summer, when I have an event I can sell them at, cuz I’d never be able to eat that many myself…
