Characters in Cake

IMG_5602

Cake balls…

IMG_5928

Candy melts…

IMG_5613

and candy color …

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

Any guesses?

Anyone?

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.

Ready?

Ok. Here goes.

Hope you like em.

Mickey Mouse.

IMG_5828

and Minnie, too. Mini Minnies.

IMG_5902

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

IMG_6697

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

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

IMG_6411

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.

IMG_6428

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.

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!!!

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!

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: http://community.kaboose.com/images/69047/wubzy2.jpg

Love Mickey & Minnie – so cute!!

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!

These are the cutest ever!!!

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

Not a character but a specific animal.

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.

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?

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.

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!!

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!

In regards to the new movie, The Last Airbender, (which is based off of a cartoon, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar:_The_Last_Airbender ) 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.

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

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!

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.

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. :)

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! :-)

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!

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!

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!

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!)

Stephanie said...

you said “Character=cute”
“Handmade=love”

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 !!!!!!

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!

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.
