Characters in Cake


Cake balls…


Candy melts…


and candy color …

These are key participants in the cake pops I’m about to show you.

Any guesses?


I made them weeks ago for some new friends to put on their website and I’ve been dying to share them with you since, because so many of you have asked how to decorate these little guys. Now that I have the go ahead, I’m so excited.


Ok. Here goes.

Hope you like em.


Mickey Mouse.


and Minnie, too. Mini Minnies.


Silhouette Mickey & Minnie Cake Pops … made by attaching cut candy melts for their iconic ears. Minnie is made by adding a simple bow.


It’s amazing what a couple of candies can do.

But, it’s even crazier what candies and some sprinkles can do.


Hey Mickey you’re so fine, you’re so fine, you … Wait. Wrong Mickey.

Now, I’m not gonna kid you. Making them with faces was more challenging. And without a mold for the shapes, these characters are going to each have a little character of their own.

That’s ok. Character = cute. Handmade = love.


And bows = crazytown cute.



Have fun and make someone smile.


The full instructions are available through the links below thanks to Disney. And I’m pretty sure you’ll find a lot of other fun stuff on their site, too.

Mickey Mouse Cake Pops
Minnie Mouse Cake Pops
Mickey Mouse Silhouette Cake Pops
Minnie Mouse Silhouette Cake Pops

And just out of curiosity. Do you have a character you’d like to see in cake pop form? Hello Kitty, Sesame Street and Frosty the Snowman aside.

You are so very talented! I’d love to see some Veggie Tales done in cake pops! Bob and Larry would be so adorable!

These look absolutely amazing! They’re so cute, so playful, so creative! I love them!

Katrina said...

I still haven’t made cake pops yet! I LOVE mickey mouse too…like absolutely love. Perhaps these will be my first. I’m scared!

April 12, 2010 07:16 AM
Jenn said...

Love these!!! I would love to see YO gabba gabba too… but my little one is turning 2 in August and would love to find out how to do Buzz & Woody from Toy Story since he LOVES them and that is the theme!!! Great job as usual!!!

April 12, 2010 07:23 AM
Nilda said...

Love them All!!!
My 40th bday is coming up and I will pass out if I see these on your site: Ms Piggy , big fan of the muppets show and the green M&M.. You are an inspiration and love that u make your beautiful daughter part of your awesome, fun, creative projects

Kelly Jean said...

My daughter would be over the moon if I could make her Nemo pops! I made owls for her birthday. :)

April 12, 2010 07:54 AM
Sandi said...

You are AMAZING!!! I will be trying these, they are so cute. My sons love Mickey Mouse. Have you ever tried Winnie the Pooh and Tigger? Thank you so much for sharing!!

April 12, 2010 07:58 AM
Erica said...

OMG these are adorable! You’re so talented!! I attempted some Mickey cupcakes last week, but they don’t hold a flame next to yours!

I am a Disney freak and those are adorable!

April 12, 2010 08:08 AM

This is awesome. You should try doing some superheros from the comic books!

April 12, 2010 08:08 AM

Sooo sweet!! c’est très joli, bravo ! Quel talent !

Oh, I almost forgot, how about the Swedish chef and his chickens?

Courtney said...

These are precious! Great job! :)

Stoich91 said...

Of course, you could always go for the iconic cartoons: Bugs Bunny, Road Runner, Tweety Bird.

Or the ever popular Jetson’s and Flinton’s! ;)

Mickey and Minnie Mouse are redonkulously adorable!

April 12, 2010 08:15 AM
Maria said...

My son would go crazy for Toy Story characters or Wubbzy! Wubbzy has a pretty basic shape so he might be fairly easy to do:

Love Mickey & Minnie – so cute!!

barb giglio said...

awesome work!!! thanks for sharing. :)

April 12, 2010 08:21 AM
Daisy said...

I agree with the suggestions for Monsters Inc. and Winnie the Pooh cake pops! Mike Wazowski, Pooh, and Tigger would be so fun, although I would probably add too much food coloring and end up with crazy colored pops!

I would also love to see a monkey pop (not necessarily Curious George, just a generic monkey).

Love all your gorgeous creations – can’t wait to buy your book!

April 12, 2010 08:21 AM
Gabriela said...

These are the cutest ever!!!

Anything Disney is CUTE, but I’d love to see Winnie the Pooh pops! :-)

April 12, 2010 08:22 AM
Angela said...

Not a character but a specific animal.


April 12, 2010 08:22 AM
Sarah Elizabeth said...

Curious George pops made with banana bread!

I’ve also always thought that Jack Skellington of The Nightmare before Christmas would make a nice cake pop.


April 12, 2010 08:27 AM
Francine said...

I would love to see some cute bugs in cake pop form. My daughter has a birthday party coming up and I was going to attempt oval bumblebees with sliced almonds for wings? Butterflies and ladybugs would be too tricky right?

April 12, 2010 08:28 AM
brandy said...

Oh my goodness! I love mickey mouse and these are too cute for words! I want them. :D

April 12, 2010 08:30 AM
Shea said...

AWESOME! I love Minnie. I would love to see Scooby Doo cake pops, I’d so be making those. Keep up the great work!

April 12, 2010 08:34 AM
Jen said...

Those are so adorable. It would be neat to see Diddl and Diddlina cake pops, they are like the German version of Mickey and Minnie, but not Disney. Cuter than Disney’s mice, but not cuter than those cake pops.

April 12, 2010 08:46 AM
liz b said...

I just gotta say, i think dilbert would be fun…mr men…barbapapa….

April 12, 2010 08:47 AM

Right now my 9 year old daughter is really into watching the Flintstones on a retro cartoon channel – she especially loves Pebbles and Bam Bam.

Yabba Dabba Doooooooo!

Ashley said...

Disney Princess or Barbie cake pops!
I also love the idea of Harry Potter cake pops!

April 12, 2010 09:15 AM
Kimmi said...

Wow, those are amazing!

I’d love to see The Simpsons characters, or old school Nintendo characters (Mario, Luigi, Princess, etc).

April 12, 2010 09:15 AM
Kim said...

Genius, you’re simply a genius:)

April 12, 2010 09:16 AM
Pam said...

These are awesome!!
My 3 yr old is in the “everything must be Disney Princess” stage lol
Is it possible to create Ariel, Cinderella, or Belle cake pops?

She also loves that cutie Kai-Lan from the carton show Ni Hao Kai-Lan.

I’m so excited to see the new pops you create!!

April 12, 2010 09:17 AM
Ann said...

These are incredible. You are so talented!!
Calvin and Hobbes would be super fun to see.

April 12, 2010 09:17 AM
Courtney S. said...

I think the Smurfs (movie coming out soon) and the Peanuts characters would be awesome!

April 12, 2010 09:18 AM

Omg!! I just came back from my Disney Honeymoon! Seeing these just made my day! I’d love to try them!

April 12, 2010 09:25 AM
Betsy Gray said...

You are a true artist! The Minnie Mouse pops are amazing.

I’d like to add another vote for Shrek. It’s coming out the weekend of my son’s 8th birthday, so we’re taking a few boys to the movies. I’ve been looking for a way to make Shrek cupcakes, but cake pops would be even better!

April 12, 2010 09:26 AM
The Teacher Cooks said...

The creativity just oozes from you. I am just amazed at these cake pops. How cute!

April 12, 2010 09:29 AM

Wow! These are my new favorites! What a great idea!

April 12, 2010 09:43 AM
Erica said...

In regards to the new movie, The Last Airbender, (which is based off of a cartoon, ) I’d like to see Aang, the main character. he’s got a nicely round and bald head that seems easy enough to make. Just wondering.

April 12, 2010 09:44 AM
Stephanie said...

These are great! Thanks for sharing! I am addicted to all things cake pops. Really. I have 2 kds with birthdays this month and just did a search for both Toy Story and Harry Potter cake pops…came up with nothing. I would love to see both of these.

April 12, 2010 09:44 AM
Angie said...

I would LOVE to see versions of any/all of the Backyardigans! Any chance of having them in time for my two younger kids’ joint birthday party at the end of the month? :-D

April 12, 2010 10:01 AM
Tara Leigh said...

I have a new appreciate for your character cake pops. I’ve been making the cake balls for quite some time, but I just put them on a stick for the first time this weekend trying to make the Hello Kitty pops. My, what a challenge that turned out to be!! (FYI – if you get your melted white chocolate too hot, it will melt the ears and make them slide off!)

Thank you for all the inspiration. You definitely take my baking to a whole new level!

April 12, 2010 10:16 AM
Barbara said...

Terrific pops! Have to try this rendition, too! My next project will be frog pops for my daughter’s birthday next weekend. She loves frogs. Barb in Mn

Too cute!

April 12, 2010 10:24 AM
Stephanie J. said...

OUTSTANDING ! REALLY! You continue to amaze me. I have enough trouble with the plain little cuppie cake balls. Finally got those mastered. These character ones are insane. Great job as always. P.S. I really always had a thing for Pooh myself. He is so adorable.

April 12, 2010 10:26 AM
Ashley F. said...

I’d like to see Curious George and Winnie the Pooh

April 12, 2010 10:26 AM
Erin said...

Those are absolutely adorable!! I just found your site last week and am simply amazed at your talent!!! I’d love to see your take on the Peanuts gang or Winnie the Pooh & friends.

April 12, 2010 10:33 AM
Chrissie M said...

Garfield. . .definitely Garfield (and I loved your cupcakes by the way). The Cheshire Cat would be awesome too. Maybe some Mad Hatter Hats?? I could go on forever. :)

April 12, 2010 10:42 AM
Cathie said...

My son is in to Thomas the Train (65th Anniversary this year), although I think that would be one time consuming cake pop.
Some characters and friends to try to make: Shrek, Veggietales (Bob the Tomato would be adorable!), Diego and Dora, etc. The possibilites are endless and I can’t wait to see what you come up with next! :-)

April 12, 2010 10:44 AM
Amy said...

these are adorable! they would have been great to go with the Mickey Mouse Cake I made for a friend 2 weeks ago! Keep up the cuteness bakerella!

Love it! love it! You are so creative! Now I really have to try making cake pops one day! My son loves Mickey!!!!!

April 12, 2010 11:04 AM
Wendy said...

Bakerella, you are truly amazing! You must’ve sprinkled Tinkerbell fairy dust on Mikey/Minnie’s faces to get that piped coating so smooth……? I LOVE all your creations. I think your readers would be amazed to see how you’ve got your kitchen organized for making and decorating all these treats. I now have 2 cabinets stocked and labled with sprinkles, deco’s, ribbons and potential “cute” add-on’s. Thanks for your terrific website and all your ADORABLE edibles!

April 12, 2010 11:05 AM
Heather H. said...

I am IN LOVE with these! Adorable! I am going to Disney for the first time ever (and I am 24 haha) this Decemeber so I might just try these to get in the spirit!! Have you ever tried making any characters from Finding Nemo?! My fav movie ever…don’t know if it’s possible but would be SO cute!

April 12, 2010 11:07 AM
catherine said...

these are seriously ADORABLE.

April 12, 2010 11:07 AM
Marissa said...

Would love to see Wonder Woman or Jetson’s characters – my fave childhood cartoons.

April 12, 2010 11:18 AM
Katie said...

I agree that Pooh and friends would be fantastic! Also, my daughter would love Finding Nemo cake pops!!! In fact, I am planning a Nemo party for her 3rd birthday, and that would be out of this world to have Nemo pops!!! Love the Mickey and Minnie ones. The silhouettes are my favs, they are so simple and iconic. Lovely!

April 12, 2010 11:18 AM
Ellen said...

These are so cute!! I have to second a couple from above – I would LOVE to see the Disney Princesses or Harry Potter!

April 12, 2010 11:23 AM
Sherry said...

I love these cake pops they are soooo cute!!! I would love to see Curious George as a cake pop.

Betty-Ann said...

That’s funny…I just did some Mickey silouettes on spring break in Kissimme for my niece’s college softball team while we were there for the Rebel Spring Games!
I’d love to see anything Super Mario you could come up with, especially YOSHI. (too many people think he’s a frog!)

April 12, 2010 11:30 AM
Stephanie said...

you said “Character=cute”

i say “Bakerella=AWESOME”

you are just way TOO cool—seriously you ALWAYS make my day :)
I had a Girl Scout Troop that I help out with make your cake pops for a Baby SHower they hosted for a teenage pregancy center—Half of the pops in blue/half in pink–everyone loved them —and even though they were just plain pops without any decoration–the girls were quite pleased with the way the pops turned out. I keep telling myself someday when I retire I am going to do all of these neat things (like what I see on your site) and I realize that the time is NOW–don’t wait—Thank you for being my inspiration—I missed you while you were gone–and your story confirmed what I already knew–that you are an incredible woman—-and I am so glad that you have not only touched thousands and thousands of women ,but also that you have touched me !!!!!!

Snoopy Cake Pops, my husband would love those, Snoopy or anyone from Charlie Brown is his favorite. Or Mr. Potato Head.

The Mickey and Minnie ones are soooo Cool!

April 12, 2010 11:52 AM

I have this odd feeling that my son will want a party this year with the How To Train Your Dragon theme. How about creating the star dragon, Toothless? He’d probably be pretty easy, but your ideas tend to be more creative than something I’d think of!

April 12, 2010 01:18 PM

your creativity seriously blows my mind! This is awesome!! :)

I love the Family Fun magazine and website. They’ve always got really cute stuff that doesn’t take a crafting or baking guru to pull off.
Seeing as my 2 and a half year old has already informed me that she wants her September birthday to be Spongebob Themed I’d love to see some Spongebob SquarePops!

April 12, 2010 01:24 PM

I would love to see a cake pop version of PINGU! I love penguins…

Or even the Grinch!

April 12, 2010 02:39 PM
Laura said...

I love the Mickey silhouttes! I’m definitely going to have to make those soon! :D I also second the suggestions for Totoro, owls, and Snoopy. I also think it’d be cool to have a Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts theme. Or how about cakepops in the shape of fruits and veggies? Kind of along the same lines as Veggie Tales, just not anthropomorphic… Like you could make a spicy chocolate cake pop in the shape of a jalapeno.

I think garfield would be super cute!
