A Stitch in time

I made a couple of new cake pop designs recently. Both for Disney, both blue. One old and one new.


Here are some Cake Pop Sorcerer’s Hats inspired by the 1940 Disney classic animated film, Fantasia. From such a long time ago, but still so recognizable – even in candy.


These cone-shaped cake balls are the same shape I used to make these Christmas Cake Pops. I love how simple shapes can transform into so many different themes…


… and by using a different color candy coating and moldable candy, you can transform the shapes into Mickey’s magical hat.


For the complete instructions on making these Sorcerer’s Hats, visit Disney’s or click on the button at the end of this post.


Now, while we’re talking blue cake pops, here’s a more recent Disney character that starts with a round shape.

Our favorite blue alien, Stitch.


Actually, Stitches.


Stitch uses chewy candy too, but in a different way.

I’ve tried to simplify the sprinkles down to the fewest possible to still resemble him.


The black ones may be more difficult to find, but feel free to substitute something similarly-shaped. Even piping on black candy coating will be fine.


These Disney projects were created for their website. For the complete instructions on making them, visit Disney’s, or click on one of the buttons below. You can also poke around here for more cake pop ideas on



P.S. – If you’re around the TV tomorrow, December 7th at the 10 am hour, I’m going to be on the Today Show showing Kathie Lee and Hoda how to make holiday cake pops. Eek. Excited and Nervous.

When I can’t seem to get creative, or things aren’t going well, I love to browse through your endless creations to remind me what I am working toward. Thanks for being my ultimate guide through the world of baking!

  6. Could I challange you maybe?? I got a question about making an Angry Birds cake, so I thougt that the birds and the pigs would be greate to have on the cake but as Cake pops. So was wondering; how would you make Angry Bird Cake Pops??

  7. How do you make stiches ears? mine neve

  14. I love the cake balls on a stick. I am having trouble with them cracking and falling off the stick. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  15. so cute!! I love the disney ones even more only because I’m a more oldies disney than a newbie disney.

    Both are cute though! I laughed when I saw the Stitch one…I know someone who can talk just like him.

  16. Quick question… I’ve only seen you use cream cheese frosting to mesh with the cake. Can you use any or is there something about the cream cheese that’s special? (forgive me, I’m a total cake pop newb).

  17. YOU ARE MY HERO. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Stitch! I cannot wait to make these!

  38. I just watched your spot on the Today Show. How fabulous are you! and it’s nice to hear your voice instead of just reading your thoughts. You go girl! And your hair rocked!

  39. Hey I saw you on TV today! this will make me look stupid- but i didn’t even know the name of the show- although i see form other posts it was the today show.

    I work with a woman with dementia and was at her home and it came on-

    You looked great- as did yer little snowmen- I thought i perhaps caught a glimpse of some shakey hands- but i could have made that up in my mind too- you seriously did so well!

    It is funny how regularly reading a blog makes ya feel like you know someone- I had this overwhelming urge to tell the woman i was with “Hey I know her”!!!

    well done!

  41. I’ve loved trying my hand at making several of the pops and I’m getting better, but after I’ve wrapped them in their little bags, do they still have to stay in the refrigerator and how long can they stay out when you want to give them as a gift?

  42. It was great seeing you on tv today…how exciting!!

  43. Saw you on with KL and Hoda. Your creativity is so inspiring. I hope to someday meet you!

  125. Hi Bakerella :) You are such an inspiration. I literally became obsessed with your cake pops after randomly coming across your book 1 week ago. Since then I’ve read all your posts and I’ve already made zombie cake pops for my zombie obsessed boyfriend’s birthday and he (along with everyone else) loved them. I’m so happy you did a Disney theme because I actually just made some Jack Skellington cake pops… to try out some different flavor combinations of course. After the semester’s over, I’ll have a full month to go crazy and I’m super excited!!

  126. Super cute! You are extremely creative.

  127. wow, i am IMPRESSED! these are gorgeous and so fun…they really remind me of Fantasia!
