Almost Easter

Easter is next weekend and I am way behind on making spring sweets. I’m hoping to post something again before Sunday, but in the meantime I hope you like these pretty pops.


Pink, yellow and white. They would be perfect just like this or with just a few white sprinkles dressing them up a bit.

But, I didn’t leave them this way.


Nope. These cake balls turned into something cute.

It’s hard to stop at simple sometimes. But I need to do that more often, because they can look amazing in just a color or two.


I dipped a third of the cake pops in white.

Actually Mercken’s Super White. Nice and fluid. Nothing added.

It’s easy to work with and melts like a dream.



Cake pop in. And out.

And nice and smooth.

Anyone wondering what I’m making yet?


Well, I used these fluffy chenille stems (or pipe cleaners as I still like to call them) if it helps any.

And if it doesn’t, the next picture that shows how I twisted them should.


Got a guess yet?


Yep! Pipe cleaners make super cute bunny ears.


I wish I could say I was really smart and thought of this first, but I saw an idea last Christmas when Lisa’s reindeer cake pops crossed my path. They served double duty acting as antlers and also the ties to secure her treat bags. Take a look at her pops and say hi. They are super clever.

Then, this weekend I thought her antler idea could also translate into Easter bunny ears. Making ears this way is a great alternative to gluing them to the pop – especially if you will be giving them away in treat bags. Because the ears can get knocked off if you’re not careful when you wrap and transport them.

But you can also just make them this way at home. Because. They. Are. Key-ute!


I tried two sizes but went with the fuller version since bunnies are full of fluff.


They worked out great.

To make cake pops, you can refer to the basic instructions here and let the dipped pops dry on a wax paper-covered baking sheet instead of standing them up in a styrofoam block.


To decorate the cake pops I used soft edible sugar pearls (found at Cake Art) to start. These are a little pricey but in small quantities they are worth it.

For the bunny nose I used pink coated sunflower seeds. The tongues are pink confetti sprinkles. And the bow ties and flowers are Daisy sprinkles.

And of course candy eyes for eyes. : )

All of the pieces are attached to the pop with just a little bit of melted candy coating for glue.
Use more coating to dot they eyes with a toothpick, connect the bowties or decorate the flowers on the pops below.

You can also use a pink edible ink pen to make rosy cheeks and a black edible ink pen to draw on whiskers.


Viola! Bunny.

And feel free to improvise. Swap the sugar pearls for white M&M’s or jelly beans. You could even just pipe them or the noses on with melted candy coating. Change the Daisy sprinkles to heart sprinkles or any other shape that you like. And you can always just draw on eyes if you can’t get your hands on any candy ones.

Spring is in the hare.

Here are some in pink and yellow, too. I think I like the white ones best though.


And here they are using the pipe cleaner bunny ears to twist, tie and secure the treat bags.

Seriously cute and sure to bring smiles to anyone you make them for.

Happy Cake Popping!

  1. Wow, How cute these stuff is i like it very so much I will also try by myself.

  2. Super cute. Did u use mini marshmellow for cheeks and did you coat the sunflower seeds yourself and with what.? Where do you get the get pens at and the ediable eyes?

  3. This will absolutely not do. One woman should not be allowed to have such immense talent.

    Sigh. :)

    The usual adoring hat tip over at OCP: Easter Bunny Cake Pops


  4. so cute could yo give me the recipe please and again so cute

  5. Wooooww.. these are too cute!!

  6. hola me podrias decir que tipo de chocolate usas , yo uso los candy meet pero me resulta demasiado espeso ¿que se le puede poner para que no este tan espeso? gracias estoy empezando en esto, un saludo

  7. I don’t know how you do it Bakerella, every one of your treats are to die for cute!!

  8. too cute, have to make them next easter! <3 :)

  9. too cute, these bunnies. How creative and inspiring. This is so good!

  10. I am very happy to have found this post as its such an interesting one! I am always looking for quality posts and articles so i suppose im lucky to have found this! I hope you will be adding more in the future…

  11. I am a college student and have to do a presentation about a successful blog. Bakerella was my first choice! I will definitely include pictures of the cakes pops I have made from your book! I love all your ideas!

  12. Your work is wonderful!!! Congratulations!!!
    Quick question, can I freeze the cake balls and decorate them later?

  13. Love it! And your blog is always so interesting – love to read it and get great baking tips / ideas and photography info too!

  14. These are SO adorable. I love your site, it inspired me to make my own blog to document all the things i cook. Thank you!

  15. These are adorable! I made them for Easter and they were a big hit with my family. The biggest challenge was figuring out what to use for the nose, but then I came across Wilton Rainbow Chip Crunch sprinkles which worked perfectly.

    I posted some photos on my blog:

  16. i had some left over white candy melts and decided to make eggies! i kept the pops plain, and used candy cups as a basket, or grass, whichever works… then doctored up my photo on photoshop. They’re not as detailed or as fabulous as your bunny pops, but i’m pretty proud of them! here’s a picture:

    Happy Easter!

  17. The are sooooo cuteee!!!!!!

  18. Today my 12 year old daughter and I made 60 cake pops for Easter. We had already planned on making the chicks and bunnies you made last year. Next year we’ll make these. :)

  19. Your bunnies made me smile. They are so cute!

  20. I am making cake pops for the 1st time for an easter party and i can’t wait!

  21. Super, super cute!!!. You are amazing!!! When I saw these I just had to make them. Just used what I had on hand. Used white m&ms instead of the sugar pears and made ears out of the candy melts. They came out cute but not as cute as yours:) YOU ROCK!!!

  22. These are so cute! I’m about to try make cupcake pops for the first time, is it okay to use bamboo sticks instead of lollipop sticks?

  23. How cute are those! Love them! You are such an inspiration when it comes to these little treats…would never think of using certain candies for wings, feet, bunny noses… : ) Just wanted to stop by and say i hi and that I follow your blog frequently.
    And, I just made my first cake pops! I put a link to your site crediting your innovations in the cake pop ‘world’. Would love a link back (if thats the term…fairly new to the blog world).

    Thanks and Happy Baking! – Angela

  24. Hey! was wondering how to make sure my cake balls (after frosting) don’t crumble? Also if it’s alright to remelt the chocolate if you can’t dip them that fast. Any help would be appreciated!!!

  25. Oh my gosh! These are A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Happy Easter!

  26. This is beautiful!! :)

  27. Awesome Freakin cute hahas! you always amaze me with your work! Great Job!

  28. These are so cute! I love the ears :) Bakerella you are amazing! I love your website and I think you are awesome. I’m 13 and I love baking, but I don’t think I could ever make anything as perfect as these!

  29. wouldn’t the pipe cleaners attach some fuzz onto the candy coating?

    well i love those and i’m making those and the chicks and eggs this week! they are so cute!

  30. Wow. Words can not describe how much adorable is in that small cake pop. You are a dessert makin genius Bakerella!

    On a seperate note, I’ve been having troubles melting colored candy coating. It gets super thick before I have a chance to dip. Any tips? Thanks!!!

  31. i could never eat such sweeties. very awesome!

    I linked to your recipe on my blog – thanks for sharing!

    doro K.

  32. Adorable. I’m making these for Easter, but doing them as chocolate colored bunnies. :)

  33. Does anyone know if these cake pops are ok to send to a nut free school? I would really like to make him to the class Easter party

  34. For those of you who haved made the pops before, do you cut off the tops and bottoms of the cake before crumbling and mixing with frosting or do you leave the “crusts” on and mix? I’ve made a green and blue cake and the crusts are a different color. I suppose they would be a different color even with a white or yellow cake mix. Thanks!

  35. Where do you get that white dip stuff you reccommended?

  36. Im seriously in love with your blog :) I visit it everyday :))

  37. What an AWESOME project!! I’m totally making things.

    You’re photos are gorgeous too…

  71. so stinkin’ cute – so much personality those little faces have!!!
    You are so talented – you must work hard to create cake pops that haven’t been done before!
    I think I have a couple ideas of cake pops that haven’t been done (crossing fingers) – but I better get going on them because they are everywhere and have been done in a million different ways!
    Love the idea of adding the (non edible) accessory though!
    Happy Easter…can’t wait for your next post :)

  72. So cute, adorable!!!

  73. They look so cute! Love them!

  74. My cooking teacher tried to make chocolate cakepops as a request from her students for her last class. Hers were horrible, to be honest. Yours are perfect!

  75. those pipe cleaners look SO fluffy! love it!

  76. These are precious! You are so talented.

  77. they are so cute.. i know what ill be making for easter :))

  78. they are very cute..

  79. I’m so bummed! I just tried to make some cake pops, and they turned out HORRIBLE! I don’t know what I did wrong :\

    Even when I first rolled them out, they didn’t even roll into balls… & as soon as they were shaped, I put them on the pan and they flattened out :( Then they wouldn’t stay on the stick, even after I let them set in the freezer.

  80. These are super cute!! Everyone has been wanting to make cake pops and I think you just gave me the best idea! Love your work!

  81. Yep, you said it…SUPER cute! Doing the stick this way has been my favorite thing lately…quicker and easier!
    Also, instead of icing I’ve been adding smooth peanut butter to my plain (golden/yellow) cake crumbs…divine with milk chocolate coating and a few crushed peanuts.

  82. Adorable! I wish I had an ounce of your creativity

  83. Those don’t even look edible! They look like some kind of cutie toy I’d put in the kids’ baskets! Love them!

  84. These are the most adorable Easter treat I have seen! In LOVE!

  85. oh my goodness these are so stinkin cute!!! Love, them you always have the cutest ideas!! You go girl…always love visiting!! puts a smile on my face!! Happy Easter!!

  86. Those are darling! You are so talented! Where do you get candy eyes at?

  87. Too cute!!!

  88. Wow! Such a fabulously cute idea. Thanks for sharing it!

  89. These are beyond adorable! Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. :)

  90. Very cute!! My 4yr old daughter thought the yellow ones that were wrapped up were wearing wedding dresses, also cute. Then she asked me to make some for her.

  91. These are so so adorable! Thank you for sharing your amazingly creative ideas!

  92. i’ve been following your blog for several years now, and i was just struck again by how much i sincerely love your posts. such a bright moment in my day, and your beautiful pictures and simple layout make me want to read this blog forever!

    Thank u,

  95. These are super cute! What size are the candy eyes??

  96. There must be something wrong with my phone because I posted twice and it hasn’t come up.

    Anyway these are so adorable. You’ve outdone yourself again with these darling little rabbits. They’re so cute no one is going to want to eat them and ruin this precious little bite.

    What did you end up using for the cheeks on the bunny? I can’t tell if they’re marshmellows or something else?

    Love these and look forward to trying them and sharing with the neighborhood kids.

  97. Gosh they are CUTE! And here i was just going to do up some pastel egg shaped cake pops for Easter! I’m off to find me some pipe cleaners – thanks for always supplying us with inspiration!! ( i am totally going to ROCK my kids school with these) ;] lol.

  103. Too cute.
    Too tasty!
    And you are TOO talented!

  104. These are so adorable! I like the version where you used the pipe cleaners to secure the bag because the pipe cleaners are not edible….and this adds an adorable packaging/presentation to it. Great work as usual!

  105. Ohhhh, so cute!! It would probably take me a week to make 10 of these… :P

  106. These are just perfect Angie! Love your work :)

  118. Seriously cute, indeed! I love your little blog email messages….I always know something amazing is in my mail. Thanks for brightening my day!

  119. Very cute, Miss Bakerella! Gotta love some bunnies for Easter. Somehow your Easter ideas always end up being some of your most adorable stuff. :)

  120. Hey

    They look so amazing.

    I’m from Germany (that’s the reason why my english is so bad) and your blog was the first blog I’ve ever followed and I love your blog so.

    Happy Easter!

  121. These are too cute! Love these!!

  122. These are so stinkin cute! You are so awesome Angie!
    Question: Are the candy eyes Wilton candy eyes or did you make them yourself? I saw the Wilton eyes at the store but they looked kinda large. Thanks!

  123. Happy Easter to you Bakerella! Those Easter bunny pops are absolutely THE cutest & most creative Easter treat by a long shot. Think I may have to try them for my Aussie Easter celebrations. Greetings from Sydney :)

  124. So perfect and so beautiful. You are so clever!

  125. These are a must make!!!!

  126. Love the cake pops! Love the pun…Spring is in the hare!!!

  127. Omg, these are without a shadow of doubt, the cutest Easter treats I have ever seen! Brilliant, Angie!

  128. so very cute and brilliant white
    with fluffy ears… what more could you ask for :)

    Betty Bake
    ps happy Easter :)

  129. These are adorable! How far In advance do you think you cOuld make these and they still taste fresh?

  130. Is it actually possible to fall in love with a cake pop?! I think I just did… Swoon ?

  131. So adorable and intuitive! Waaaay better than a boring chocolate Easter egg! Your posts’s are always explained right down to the last decoration and I love it!

    Hope you’re well!

  132. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww they are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo adorable !!!!!!!!

    another great pop !

  133. Angie just when I think you couldn’t possibly come up with another amazing creation you outdo yourself again. OMG these are so adorable. I love the cute little bunnies! You do realize no one is going to want to eat them. They’re just too precious. I can’t wait to try them.

  134. I don’t understand why they don’t crack themselves from pure and absolute cuteness. They are the most cute pops I’ve ever seen. And you’ve made lots of hiper cute things these years. But these… Are awesome.

    No entiendo como no revientan de puro monísimos que son. Son los más monos que he visto nunca. Y eso que en estos años has hecho cosas preciosas, pero estos son una auténtica maravilla.

  135. I love this idea as my little boy doesn’t really like chocolate. I’m going to attempt a simple version. Rx

  136. Wow, everytime I see one of your posts I think the next one will never have the same effect, but I must tell , you improve yourself every post and I´m sure next ones will be better.
    Love the buns, they are wonderful!!!
    Love from the north of Spain

  137. OMG! So cute! You are so clever! :-)

  138. These are too stinkin’ CUTE!!!!! Too CUTE to eat! :)

  139. I literally just exclaimed at how cute they were– you seriously amaze me EVERY TIME! & I especially love these little guys as I have a bunny of my own (he has long down ears though). So well done!

  140. Love them! Too cute! Their eyes are adorable!!

  141. Wow hoppin, poppin, gorgeous little bunny! Amazing…sooo cute!

  142. I looked back at the list of items, and I see they are 8mm. “Thank you” again. : )

  143. “Thanks” for the inspiration, and for sharing your work. You are amazingly creative artist! I have one question. What size sugar pearls did you use? These are absolutely adorable!

  144. Love this idea! Any pointers on using the white chocolate? I use both the white and super white merCkins super white and I can’t seem to get it to melt as fluid as milk chocolate, it seems to set very lumpy. I know the tempering is at a lower temp than milk chocolate, but nothing I seem to do prevents that molten lava clumpy look. Any advice would be much appreciated.

  145. Wow! You are a genius, I just love these little Easter bunnies. A perfect Easter gift. You are so lucky in the USA, you have such a large variety of cake decorations on the market.
    I love reading your blog here in the UK.
    Happy Easter Bakerella.

  146. Super cute! You keep outdoing yourself in creating cuteness!

  147. love them…. too cute :)

  148. OMG too cute! Make me want to cake-pop it up right now (can’t – in middle of a move).

  149. Simple is best for some of your followers perhaps (like me), but for you…Do not keep it simple! Continue to absolutely blow our socks off. Again. And again. Just like you did today!

  150. You come up with everything…
    Oh hail, Bakerella the Cake Pop Queen! (:

  151. Glad you hopped to it! ;) These are so creative- Especiapipe how you used pipe cleaners for the ears. Loved your friend’s reindeer pops from Christmas too. PS. Thanks for recommending Sugar Art. Can’t wait to order te soft sugar pearls.

  152. Yay for Bakerella and for Easter! Lots of treats all round :)

  153. Omg!!!!!! These are so cute !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so in love with them! I really don’t know how you do it but all you sweets and treats are yummy and pleasant to the eye only bakerella can do such a thing ! Love your site and I keep a close eye on it here from south Africa !!!!!!!!!!! Luv u
