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.

My boys are star wars crazy. I think Yoda would be a ltitle tough – but how about R2-D2? OR, something from Dr Seuss (I tried to think how I could do that for the 1st grade class party on Dr Seuss’s birthday but I’m not talented like you.)

I used the Peanut Butter Cup Cake recipe you posted for my birthday cake this weekend. YUM! The only thing is that in the first part of the directions it says to coat pans with nonstick spray and line with wax paper and coat paper. I wasn’t sure about the wax paper but I did it anyway. Well, I put the wax paper in the pans with the cake mix over it and put it in the oven…..wax paper smokes/smolders when it is heated at 325 degrees. I was able to take them out and just use the pans with nonstick spray and it turned out fine.

Seriously…my kids would die to get a hold of these!!! I can’t believe I never thought to attach altered candy discs to a cake pop…such a great idea!!! Did you dip the cake pop first then attach the ears…or ears first then dip all together??? Thanks for all the great ideas!!!

LauraL said...

Oooh! Love the Micky and Minnie cake pops.
How about Star Wars ones? Yoda, Death Star, Boba Fett’s helmet. This year’s the 30th Anniversary of the Empire Strikes Back. Hmmm. lightsabers? Would be cool for a party. (Yes, we are Star WSrs geeks.)

April 19, 2010 10:47 AM
Joy said...

Could you pretty please do Peanuts characters? The 60th Anniversary of Peanuts is this summer and I want to have a party – and I’d love to make cake pops with their faces!

Margaret said...

You know…i would love to see Marvin the Martian, or Batman. But the person who suggested Calvin & Hobbes has the best idea! I would LOVE Calvin & Hobbes pops.

April 19, 2010 01:56 PM
Lisa said...

I absolutely loved these. I wish I had the talent you do. You amaze me.

I think it would be cool to see the Toy Story characters. Only because my son is super obsessed with Toy Story.

Aurora said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I swear your cakepops just take my breath away!!! I can’t wait for you book!!!

I was wondering if Royal Icing would work for the face color detail on the Candy Melt coating?

And one more Q… Which candy melts taste better? Wilton’s or Mercken’s???

April 19, 2010 08:55 PM
Aurora said...

I would love to see ANY of the Disney Princesses in a Cakepop!!

April 19, 2010 08:57 PM

Hoops and YoYo to go along with one of their funny hallmark cards would be adorable.

April 20, 2010 12:10 PM
Laura P. said...

WOW! Bakerella you keep out-doing yourself. You are AMAZING!

A character I’d like to see in Cake Pop form…You should do a self-portrait! My 2nd choice would be the Peanuts gang :)

April 20, 2010 01:09 PM
Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella said...

I thought that they were genius enough from the back but then you had to go make the front which looks quite frankly, just perfect! :)

April 20, 2010 02:41 PM
Jen said...

First of all I think you are amazing and soooo creative! Thank you for sharing so much! Is there another link or another way to get the full minnie and mickey directions? The link you posted keeps saying its not avaliable anymore?

April 20, 2010 03:27 PM
Laurel said...

OH OH OH!!! I KNOW! I need Spongebob cakes/cupcakes/CAKE POPS for the first weekend in June for my grandson.!!

April 20, 2010 04:23 PM
Lisa said...

I would LOVE to see Pooh and friends cake pops! My daughter is turning 1 soon and I have been going back and forth with what theme I should have for her party. One of the deciding factors ended up being when I saw your Sesame Street cake pops. So cute!

April 20, 2010 08:43 PM

Kara said...

These are adorable!! I wish these had been done nine months ago when i was throwing my daughter’s mickey mouse clubhouse second birthday party. I even came on here to see if you had done anything disney. But no luck. You are so creative and freaking talented!
My daughter now loves Fancy Nancy. Unfortunately, I don’t think that could be made into cake pops. Although, I wouldn’t put it past you to think of something Fancy Nancy related…..tiaras, butterflies, lady bugs, etc.

April 21, 2010 01:15 PM

Absolutely! Spongebob Square Pants. Phineas and Ferb.

Mariela from Argentina said...

Ah………………..I just saw the Mickey cakepops!!!!!! You know what’? In January, it was my son’s 2nd birthday and I read all of Bakerrella’s posts to see what I could do. In the end, I prepared cupcakes, a Mickey Mouse cake and …………… Mickey Mouse chocolatee souvenirs!!!!!!! Just as the ones you did!!! Mine were only chocolate though…and there was no decoration….Here’s a link to some pics in my facebook page. Hope you’re able to see them!!!!!

Hi, I just love all these cake pops. Can anyone tell me if the cake pops can be frozen. I need to make 400 for a wedding and it will be real time squeeze if not. Thank you.

Those are adorable! That would be so awesome to see some Family Guy or Simpsons pops. Or… you know what else would be cool? I play a lot of video games, World of Warcraft mostly, But I’ve always wanted to bake something that looks like the Horde/Alliance crests. That might be kinda hard to do in cake balls though…

April 27, 2010 09:53 AM

I’m having some issues with the coating cracking. Can anyone help?

I’m using Wilton melting wafters and adding Crisco to thin it but, many seem so crack once hard. Ideas? Suggestions?

My kids’ school celebrates Dr. Seuss day every year and I think it would be wonderful to make pops for Dr. Seuss! I was thinking Dr. Seuss’ hat but anything you could come up with would be fantastic!!! I absolutely love all the pops you have done. I’ve just started on my adventure of making them, but I’m so excited to be doing so!

I don’t know if you’re familiar with Lord of the Rings, but if you are, what cake pop do you think I should make? Thanks

SO I started of searching on the web for ideas for Mickey & Minnie birthday themed thingies for my soon to be 2 year old twins. When I stumbled upon your cupcake pops & got excited but sad at the same time. Excited b/c they are adorable and look fun to make with my kiddos (I have 5 going on 6 children). Sad b/c I thought the cupcake pops were better suited for my little girls b-day, BUT – that’s not until next March & it’s only October. Click click click, scroll scroll scroll….and VIOLA! I found Mickey & Minnie Mouse pops!! Holy Canoli!! They’re Super Cute!! And Perfect!!! Now….I just have to figure out HOW to make them look as good as you did! Wish me luck!!!

October 29, 2010 03:25 PM
Susan said...

You are so creative and all your pops are amazing! I just heard about your book and bought it right away. I would like to see Garfield – not sure if Hello Kitty can be customized to that though I am going to try. I would like to see some medical stuff. I am going to nursing school and trying to figure out something cool to make at the end of each semester for my classmates – Needles, bandaids, penlights…..hmmmmm?

I would love to see some Bambi (and friends) or Little Einsteins cake pops. My 2 1/2 year old little girl loves both of these Disney “shows” and I think they’d lend pretty well to cake pops.

Thank you for the great tutorials. I know I have just found what to make/serve at her 3rd birthday party!

Amazing! Nothing I do in the kitchen is ever that pristine or gorgeous… but I’m all over your “homemade = love”. If my kids recongnize it and think its cool, I consider it a success.

I’m trying my hand at cakeballs for the first time this weekend. They will (hopefully) be little Yoda heads for my son’s class to celebrate his birthday. We’ll see how it goes!
