Wowzers!

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.

Stephanie

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

chelsi

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.

Jessie

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

christie

Chicks, chicks and more chicks from Christie.

julia_sugartree

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

Amanda

Inspired by the chicks, Amanda made a bunny version.

summer

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

Leesa

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

Alison_Sherry

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

Kate_Kelsey

Kate & Kelsey made these cutie-patootey cake pops.

Melanie

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

kati

Kati even made some cute chicks with little easter bonnets.

Terry

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

kerry

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

Melissa

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.

Cake pops made an appearance at our Easter table, too! And the leftovers went with our daughter to pre-school on Monday. They were a hit EVERYWHERE!

Oh, so cute. I made them too (with OREO truffle in the middle instead of cake…mmmmm) and posted them on my blog at http://www.piccolinadesigns.blogspot.com
We used them as treats for our Sunday school class and all the adults thought they were store made. So much fun. I can’t wait to see what else you come up with. Have you thought of doing some for a baby shower? hint, hint :)

I made cake pops as well! People went NUTS over them!!! I found them much harder to shape than I anticipated. Also I had a small mishap with the pink eggs…but that’s not for this posting. ;)

Oh man – I discovered your blog today and I fell COMPLETELY IN LOVE. It somehow captures something really sweet and lovely and simple…or something. Anyway, if life had more cake pops in it, I think it would be a lot better. :)

I also mentioned your blog in mine (Hot Cinnamon Spice.) :D Check it out…http://the-hcs.blogspot.com/

Thanks for totally brightening my day.

Kay said...

I have to say, you are one of the most generous people ever. I’ve attended different cake classes and I’ve been lucky enough to have teachers that do not withhold information. If they think it will help their students, they share it. And you are one of them.

Hearing from my other friends, there are people who don’t do that, holding on to information for their own benefit.

So thank you, for being so kind as to share your creativity with us.

Bakerella, I tried…but they were a little bit sad. Mine were just cake balls (they kept falling off the stick…were they too heavy?)that my friend and I decorated. I’m so impressed with everyone else.
Thanks for all the inspiration!

Those are so cute! I keep meaning to try cake pops out but it’s so hard to find the right things in the UK! The next time I visit my boyfriend’s family in the states, I am definitely going to try them out.

Sarah – Yes… look in October 08

miss – i link to it on the posts that use it.

Blythe’s Mom – that’s cool!

Gina – Yay! Go Gina’s husband

MMW – hilarious!

momof4sweetsisters – try re-dipping if it happens again.
pens – try americolor brand

Mark and Meghan – YES. let the cake cool 1000% and try using less icing next time.

Sue – Check Oct o8 for pumpkins. Snowmen I’ve done, but I can’t remember if I posted them.

Christine – thin chocolate and a deep bowl

Betty-Ann – I think your hubby is on to something. I don’t keep them in the freezer for long at all.

And try to roll them a little looser.

Erin – there’s a link in the posts I use them on. It’s americolor brand

Megan – thinner chocolate and a deeper bowl should do the trick.

thin with shortening.

Willow – I agree!

I tried them too but they kept falling off the stick & we thought they tasted too sweet so once I had half of them done with the chocolates I gave up & threw them out.
I will try again though!

I made some too! We put sanding sugar on the chicks to make it look as if they just got their first feathers and we attempted carrots.
My husband loved participating! I’ve included the link to pictures below.

Wow, these all look soo amazing!! It’s so great to see how artistic everyone was and how different they are came out. One persons take on a theme can be quite different than anothers, that and the fact that you never know what can happen when you start baking-somehow-these little pops can take on a life of their own and come out GREAT!! Thanks for all the ideas and inspiration Bakerella–u r the best!!!!! Can’t wait to see what hatches up next, lol!! PS–Your Cake Pops for a Cause were AMAZING-what a way to help others while creating beautiful delish treats–kudos to u!!!!

misscrys said...

Cute, cute, cute!! I’m planning on making some cake pops for a leadership training that I’m in charge of. In order to relieve stress on the day of the event, I was hoping to make the pops ahead of time, leaving only the dipping in chocolate for the day of the event. Is this possible–can they be frozen?? Any tips????

Renee said...

These look amazing!!

Bakerella, I was wondering if you have any inspirational ideas in that noggin of yours for a 30th birthday. Mine. I’m wanting to knock the socks off my guests and I know cake pops will definately do it, but I’m lacking ideas.
Also, we don’t get candy melts in NZ, I’m assuming white chocolate with food colouring will do the same thing?

April 22, 2009 04:49 AM

Bakerella said...

Leesa – no problem

Anonymous – yum

Lesa – I’m working on that. It’s happened a few times. I think it has something to do with being in the freezer too long or the mixture expanding or something.

misscrys – I would roll and dip on the same day. But, you can make the cake ahead.

RachelMarie said...

Okay, I’ve been attempting to make these pops (in various shapes and forms, including plain old cake balls) and I cannot for the life of me to get the chocolate to come out smooth.

It’s not that it isn’t melting nicely, but if I let them cool at room temperature, the chocolate slides off and puddles around the bottom, and if I stick them in the refrigerator, the outside of the chocolate hardens, but before the layer closest to the cake hardens, it all slides off and makes a bigger mess! I’ve tried freezing them before I dip, and all manner of mixing and matching the above mentioned methods, and still, no luck.

What am I doing wrong??

April 23, 2009 12:35 AM

Bakerella said...

what kind of chocolate are you using?

Gentle tapping is how you get them smooth. It allows the excess candy coating to fall off.

Angie Wood said...

I have never seen a cupcake pop! I love them!!!! What a great idea and it would be perfect for a wedding! Very cute :)

RachelMarie said...

I’m just using the bagged chocolate wafers from the craft store…I hadn’t thought that the type of chocolate might be the issue…do you have any particular kind to recommend?

As far as the gentle tapping goes, I usually wind up losing almost all the chocolate when I do that.

I don’t usually have such a problem with things like this, so I am DETERMINED to get a good batch out one of these days.

Bakerella said...

RachelMarie – I use merckens, make n mold or Kroger grocery store brand.

Make sure the balls are chilled before you dip, and that the bowl is deep enough and the chocolate thin enough. Adding shortening can help.

You’ll still need to tap gently to allow the excess chocolate to fall off.

Amy said...

Mine had Good n Plenty ears-they looked more like gerbils,lol. I ended up just making balls and sprinkles. I think I made them too big or added too much frosting to the crumbs, they were too heavy. Check out my pics and funny story on my blog http://BizzarroSupermom.blogspot.com

I did the cake bites/balls for the first time yesterday and they were super yummy. I used devil’s food cake with caramel frosting (don’t recommend it – too sweet) and covered them in dark chocolate. I even stuffed a few with a candied cherry. Those were SO good!! Your blog is awesome!!
