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.

These are AHHHMAZING! So adorable! I think The Wizard of Oz would be cute! Not sure how…but that’s where you come in, right?? *LOL*

Kate said...

Wow– you have outdone yourself again! I may just have to give the silhouettes a try for DD’s first birthday this weekend! I have read for years, but never been brave enough to try— cake pops, here I come!

April 13, 2010 04:15 PM
Eileen said...

How cute. Most likely I’d be making the ones without the faces. LOL!

I think the charaters from Ni hao Kai Lan would be super cute to make.

Yo Gabba Gabba, absolutely. they would be sooo cute!!!

April 13, 2010 06:41 PM
carol said...

omg, this is amazing. how’d you draw the light color face part? try making a wall-E or eva cake pop :) i think that’d be super cute.

April 13, 2010 06:52 PM
Dawn Ryan said...

Cute to the nth power! I have got to try your cake pops again – been afraid to try since 1st attempt when they were too soft – I wonder if most successful batches DON’T use the entire can of frosting? I did and I think that’s where I messed up. Your try of perfectly round spheres would be awesome to achieve!
Any advice? Would love emails from all who have had no hiccups in making cake pops in general!! Thanks!

April 13, 2010 09:22 PM
Debbie said...

If you could make the disney princesses…. (which i’m sure you could) i would smile for the whole week!!!

April 13, 2010 10:14 PM
Jaclyn said...

Wow, your cake pops never cease to amaze me!

Although they’re slightly obscure characters, there’s a children’s show called Pocoyo* that would probably make for some ADORABLE cake pops. I’ve been meaning to try them myself, but I’d love to see what you could come up with!

*Here’s a photo:

Too cute!! Does anyone remember Alf? That would be a really cute cake pop.

April 14, 2010 09:51 AM

Love the muppets idea – Miss Piggie, or Animal, or Beaker! Also would love to see Twilight pops or Tinkerbell, though don’t know how those would work :)

April 14, 2010 10:25 AM

Star Wars….may the force be with you….says the mom of three boys! Actually, if you could put it up in the next 24 hrs. that’d be great—my littlest man will be 7 on Saturday and would be oh so thrilled! Just kidding about the next 24 hrs.—it really is his birthday on Sat., though! I may have to give them a whirl myself!

These are fantastic!

Michelle said...

Wow, those faces are impressive!!!

I’d love some star wars cake pops for the little fans in my life. Yoda, R2D2 and Darth Vader would be top picks. Storm troopers might be rather easy (in the gamut of cake pops, at least) to pull off.

I absolutely love these! We are taking our 2 year old to Disney next week for vacation. She is sooooooo excited. We will have to make these to help pass the time before we go. Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful creativity!

Amy Taylor said...

You are so inspiring. I made the chicks for Easter and my FIL wanted to take one to work, “To brag!” He works for the Sheriff’s department ! LOL
Love everything you make!

April 14, 2010 10:41 PM
Stacy said...

So amazing… like I should be surprised! I love them with the faces, and without, but keeping the Minnie bow on!

I loved the Sesame Street characters, they were absolute perfection.

But, if I had to chose, I’d pick a Christmas theme – Rudolph, Clarice, Herbie the Elf, and Abominable the Snowman!

April 14, 2010 10:43 PM
Michaela said...

They are so cute! What about characters from Rainbow? Although i’m not sure if you get it in the states.

lucky girl said...

hi! i love your blog! i am a mother and aspiring baker living in japan – and i know my daughter and a whole lot of other kids would be over the moon if you made a set of cake pops in the most popular tv character out here – anpanman!. there is a whole cast of characters that would make for super cute pops too.
check out these links and see if you don’t agree!

April 15, 2010 06:39 AM
Erin said...

Girl! You make me smile! What about Charlie Brown characters? or the Penguins of Madagascar? or Donald/Daffy Duck – or even Alvin and the Chipmunks! (i know easier said than done) But you’re so talented, I’m sure you could do any of these! :)

Super cute as always! On another note – I noticed this post didn’t show up in Google Reader and when you click “subscribe” the feed preview doesn’t show this post either… wasn’t sure if you knew about this apparent glitch and thought I’d mention it. Keep up the great blog and baking work! :)

Simpsons cake pops! I am a huge fan of The Simpsons, and collect Simpsons memorabilia. I think that cake pop Maggie would be ADORABLE.

April 15, 2010 05:12 PM

I’d love to see anything from Cars! Or a transformer. Or any of the Disney Princesses. Ok, any cake pop you post I love.

April 15, 2010 06:06 PM

April 15, 2010 09:29 PM
Deana Klein said...

Super Cute!! My favorite characters are the Peanuts Gang. Love Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Woodstock, etc…. I carved a Charlie Brown pumpkin one year, complete with the jack-o-lantern face on the back from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

April 15, 2010 09:56 PM
Jackie said...

OMG LOVIN these SOOOOOOO much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Definitely my favorite ones. And I love them without faces! :)

Hey Bakerella,
I loooove your work. I’ve made cake balls twice already but theyve been pretty plain. Im not very artsy or meticulous but my brother’s college graduation is coming up, just think it would be great to make little cake pop heads with graduation caps. Can you pleaaase make a quick tutorial for that? Graduation season is coming up I think lots of people would love those! Thanks for all your inspiration and advice!!

I would love to see a NEMO cake pop:)

April 16, 2010 08:27 AM
Lyndsay said...

I agree with the Charlie Brown characters. I teach preschool and The Peanuts is our classroom theme! Charlie Brown would be easy, hehehe. Just a bald head with a little swirl on top.

April 16, 2010 10:33 AM
KK said...

Adorable! I’d love to see Max & Ruby bunny cake pops (from the Nick Jr. tv show), since that’s the theme of her 3rd birthday party this year. Love the ideas! :)

Bakerella you are fabulous : )
I would like to see Kai-Lan in cake pop form. Anything you can demonstrate will be fine with me.
Vicki, Vicki, Vicki cake balls are all over this website check the menu on the upper left. Happy baking.!.!

Sponge Bob Pops would be awesome.

I would love a Yoda pop! I think my nephews would go nuts for those. I agree Harry Potter pops would be adorable, and maybe little Pokemon’s for a kiddie party.

I am sure you will not get to this comment what with the HUNDREDS of other comments on this entry, but I had to share…

My 3.5 year old son just came to the computer when I was looking at this and he goes “MICKEY MOUSE!!! Whoever made those was being creative!”


Well done!

cherylene said...

ADORABLE! I want to see a star wars theme for all those big kids. I was thinking cheerios on the side of the head for princess leah’s buns. Hmmm….I’d love to see something adorable w/that theme

April 16, 2010 03:58 PM
Jacinda said...

I’d love to see Winnie the Pooh. He was my favorite growing up and my kids when they were little. In fact, my oldest daughter wore out a video tape and we were praying they hadn’t stuffed them back in the vault (i.e. Disney had quit selling them again). We were in luck by a few months! :)

April 16, 2010 08:37 PM
jackie said...

i love love LOVE ur site. Everything looks super pretty n delicious. As for other characters, what about nemo or garfield?

April 16, 2010 10:10 PM
Bonnie said...

Oh my wow! So adorable. Maybe.. just maybe… I’ll get brave & play again one of these days. The last time I went for one of your creations, though, I ate brownies & cupcakes for days. What a chore… Ah, well… someone had to do it. :) (if you could only see how much that idea really didn’t bother me!)

As for characters I’d love to see? Pepe Le Pew & Penelope. I have always had a soft spot for that little guy and his desire for amore… I have always been a fan of the underdog and how can you go wrong with a French accent?

Such amazing talent! Thank you for sharing the “how to’s” with us.

WOW. You’re my hero(ine). if you would have asked me 25 years ago, it would have been Minnie Mouse.

I don’t know how you get the ears to stay on for the dipping. I am enamored.

Also love mickey &minnie but where is the rest of the gang? Another idea is i’m a huge GATOR fan, got ta have a gator pop! Go U.F.!!!

I agree with those who proposed Peanuts characters…That would be so fun! Great, wonderful, incredible job on these Bakerella!

The Chipmunks? Disney Princesses? Cars?

Have you done Toy Story or Shrek?

April 18, 2010 01:33 AM
Angela said...

I had to comment again.

My daughter is so into the Princesses. So, Not just them, but the whole she-bang!

A Beauty and the Beast Theme (The teapot would be adorable! I can imagine the beast now!)
Snow White (and the dwarves!)
Sleeping Beauty (the godmothers would be so cute!)
The Little Mermaid (Flounder, Sebastian!)
Cinderella (once again the Godmother and her mouse friends!)

The new one, Princess and The Frog, that frog would be adorbale!

My 4yr old & 15 month old daughters would be over the moon if you did SpongeBob or Yo Gabba Gabba. I think the Yo Gabba Gabba characters would translate amazingly into cakepops. PLEASE do it!!! <3

Oh goodness…I haven’t been on here forever and then this is what I come back too!!!! My mother is a HUGE Mickey and Minnie fan…Her birthday is coming up at the end of next month right before she is going to take vacation to go to…get this…DISNEY…this would be PERFECT for me to make for her!!!!!!
