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.

OMG thank you soooo much for making these Bakerella!!! I’ve got a cupcake order for a friend who’s going to Disneyland Paris with a group of girls for a bachelorette party, and she’s ordered Disney themed cupcakes. I wanted to do a Disney cake ball, but have only seen one so far. Now I’ve got a plan for what I have to do! You’re seriously a life saver!

These are awesome! I almost have the nerve to try making them… I would LOVE to see Toy Story, Super Mario Bros, more disney characters… I love your work!

Lora Joy Gastrock said...

Zi said...

I would love to see Mythbusters cake pops!! Maybe they aren’t characters in the traditional sense, but it could be so simple! Just some glasses, a berret and a mustache!

April 12, 2010 03:14 PM
Seanna Lea said...

Wow. I saw someone else’s suggestion of power puff girls and went Yes!

Of course, if you wanted to take something not cute and make it cute (and edible), then you could do the 4 Horsemen.

April 12, 2010 03:18 PM

Bakerella, I love all the attention to detail you put into your work! Awesome!

Sandra said...

My daughter fell in love with these cake pops when she saw them! She just turned 2 in March and we took her to Disneyland for the first time. Now she is obsessed with Mickey and Minnie! Thanks for the great idea, i think i will now have to try them myself for her!!!! Some fun characters to try next would be the Yo Gabba Gabba characters from the Nick Jr. show. my daughter also loves them and they are so cute!

April 12, 2010 04:09 PM
Kim said...

THESE ARE SO CUTE!!! You are truly amazing Bakerella! My vote would be the three from Umi Zoomi (Geo, Bot, and Millie), Yo Gabba Gabba, Wow Wow Wubbzy, or Kai Lan. How about something to fit in with a fairy theme? butterfies? Anything that you would pick would be amazing and I can’t wait to see what you unveil next!

April 12, 2010 04:14 PM
shelby said...

These are adorable! I would love to see some of the other Disney characters is pop form… like the crab Sebastian from The Little Mermaid, and Flounder (I don’t know why I’m on a Little Mermaid jag today!)

April 12, 2010 04:31 PM
Christine said...

Stitch from Lilo and Stitch, or Nemo! Harry Potter characters would be wonderful! Any kind of dragon would be realyl cool also.

I would LOVE to see the Peanuts Characters. Charlie Brown and the gang are my grandma’s favorite cartton friends. She is an avid collector of lots of things, especially Peanuts. She has pancreatic cancer and for christmas I made her a bag with “Charlie Brown Christmas Tree” fabric and she takes it with her to chemo every visit. I would love to maybe see how to make them and ship them to her. She doesn’t eat too much these days but I am sure she would make an exception for those!!

April 12, 2010 07:02 PM

You are an amazing designer! I love looking at your new creations. One of these days I will try one of my own :) As for a character I would have to say……Spiderman (my son) and a pink princess (my daughter)

Kimberly said...

I would love to see Dora the Explorer (and her sidekick Boots) in a cake pop form! My daughter absolutely loves Dora and anything chocolate (LOL)…and her 2nd birthday is coming up (June 2). :-D

April 12, 2010 08:15 PM
Amy A said...

Wow! I have been waiting, somewhat impatiently, for your next round of cake pops. I must say that it was worth the wait! I love the mickey and minnies. As for some ideas…every since we made the Hello Kitty pops, I have been trying to figure out how to make sponge bob…I am not as creative as you. But, some other ideas would be retro cartoons…Gumby, Smurfs, or how about the Marshmallow guy from Ghost Busters!! :)

April 12, 2010 08:18 PM
Sue Tompkins said...

These are absolutely the cutest!!! Almost too cute to eat!!!
I can’t wait to see what you come up with next! YUM! YUM!

I would love to see the 7 Dwarfs and maybe even Snow White! These are so awesome. They made me smile!

April 12, 2010 08:32 PM
Shayne said...

Some Yo Gabba Gabba ones would be SO cute! I don’t then they would be that hard either….at least for you they won’t! I’m cake pop retarded!

April 12, 2010 08:33 PM
Diana Elizondo said...

April 12, 2010 08:33 PM
Kelsey said...

Cute! I’m not sure which I like better, the silhouettes or the characters!

Hmm, perhaps you should do something like SpongeBob cake pops! Or any of the other great suggestions! :]

Holly @ Domestic Dork said...

I would love to see some Geek Love in Cake Pop form…Storm Troopers, or the Star Trek TNG crew, or LotR, anything geeky really.

Also, Muppets.

That is all.

Hilary said...

I am constantly blown away by your creativity and talent. I even called my husband in to look at the mickey and minnie mouse pops. How about some baby shower ideas! I’m throwing one soon and need some help!

As for comment 95′s request for Vin Diesel pops, I totally second that!

April 12, 2010 11:16 PM
Melinda said...

I would love to see Scooby Doo….and so would my boys!!!

April 12, 2010 11:48 PM
Diana Rodriguez said...

I love all your work. I can’t wait for your book to come out. I would love to see a cake pop of Dora the Explorer or Diego. Most of all, thanks for sharing your talent. The best compliment anyone could get is to have your ideas copied.

April 13, 2010 12:01 AM
Amanda said...

Have you ever seen that 1-800-flowers commercial where there’s that cute little white fluffball? He’s called “that warm fuzzy feeling” and he’s just the cutest! He’d be really easy to make, he’s round, white, and fuzzy. I know you’ve done fur before for Sesame Street characters so it shouldn’t be too difficult or new. Here’s a link to an image so you can see what I’m talking about.

Thanks Bakerella! Your amazing!

April 13, 2010 12:09 AM
Heidi said...

Very cute!

You are very creative. And very PATIENT! =)

What do you think of Super Mario cake pops?

April 13, 2010 12:53 AM

I LOVE the Mickey and Minnie’s – simply adorable! How about continuing in the Disney theme and making Donald and Daisy? That’d be way fun too! :)

You are so talented! I am determined to make some… one of these days.
My daughters would love Spiderman and [Disney] Princesses! What about Horton and Cat in the Hat?
Any Dr. Suess characters would be fun,

April 13, 2010 03:15 AM

Ooh! Do you remember the old cartoon “Marvin”? He was a baby that would go on adventures in his bottle shaped rocket. He would be so cute!

Shirl said...

omg these are so darn cute! i wanted to make some of these for my nephew’s bday, but i didn’t have the capacity and time to make 100s of them in 2 days…so i just did a basic cake pop and put a mickey tag to it! i salute you for the patience!!!!

Well I completely agree with everyone else about how thoroughly adorable these are. I love them!!
I agree with the Snoopy suggestion, and would get such a kick out of a Darth Vadar one!
My Mum would love to see the guys from the Madagascar movies. I would just love to see some little owls! Eeyore and Winnie the Pooh would be great too. You know, I think you’d make anything look adorable! :)
