Candy Cup Caps

Stuff

Can you guess what I’m going to make with all this stuff?

Candy Cup Caps

Little bitty candy cup graduation caps. That’s what.

I don’t even know anyone that’s graduating this year. But, because so many of you asked… here they are and hope you like…

Rainbow Candy

Airheads Extremes Rainbow Berry Sweetly Sour Belts! Ummm… Can you say mouthful? When I found these in the candy aisle at the drug store, I had to grab them. I knew I could find something fun to do with them.

Rainbow Candy Belts

And besides… they’re just plain pretty!

Rainbow Candy

These were definitely the inspiration for the graduation caps. They make perfect tassles and give you color choices at the same time. Just cut apart each color strip with a knife.

Reese's

Now, grab a bag of miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups. But, before you unwrap them, stick them in the freezer for a few minutes. It will make it easier to remove the wrapper and keep the sides looking pretty when you do.

Reese's

If you remove the wrappers while the candies are room temperature, the sides sometimes come off with the wrapper like this. But that’s okay, because these rejects taste good.

Reese's

After you unwrap them, place all the cups on a sheet of wax paper and let them get back to room temperature. When the chill is gone, dip the end of your lollipop stick in some melted candy coating and carefully insert into the candy cups. If they are too cold, the cups will split apart. Just insert the sticks about halfway and let dry.

Caps

Now, work on the tops. I used these small Godiva chocolate squares. They aren’t the cheapest little things, but the proportions were perfect and because they were individually wrapped, the edges were clean. I found them at a store called the World Market a while ago. Just draw a thin line of candy coating on top with a toothpick and glue on a short piece of the candy belt and a rainbow chip sprinkle in the same color to match.

Candy Cup Caps

When the tops are dry, glue them on the candy cups using some more of the candy coating and insert into a styrofoam block to finish drying.

Cute!

But, wait a minute. What if you don’t want brown graduation caps?

Or maybe you’re just dying to do the whole cake pop thing. Well, you’re in luck.

Graduation Cake Pops

Grab some colored candy melts and get your hands on one of these square candy molds.

Pour some melted candy coating in each square and then drop it on the counter several times to flatten/smooth out the chocolate. Put them in the freezer for a few minutes and it will be easier to pop them out of the molds.

Graduation Cake Pops

You can also use one of these medium size candy cup molds. I’ve shown them before with the Cake Bite Method. Just fill the bottom of the cup with some melted candy. Place small, chilled cake ball shapes (smaller than the width of the mold) and push them into the candy coating until the coating inches up the sides. That one on the right is how they look for the Cake Bite Method, but for these they should be almost flush with the height of the molds.

Graduation Cake Pops

Then, cover the exposed areas with more melted candy coating. When covered, insert lollipop sticks about halfway in. By the way, using chilled cake balls here helps the sticks stand up straight when you insert them. Then place these in the freezer for a few minutes and when dry, they’ll pop out relatively easy. Don’t try to pull them out by the sticks, though. Push them out by pressing on the mold underneath.

Then, you can glue everything on. Instead of rainbow chip sprinkles, use a mini-size m&m because these hats are larger in size than the Reese’s version.

Graduation Cake Pops

And there you have it… Colored Candy Covered Cake Ball Caps!

P.S. If you can’t find Airheads Extremes Rainbow Berry Sour Belts, then try pull apart Twizzlers. They are bigger and round, but if you cut them in half, I think you can glue them, flat side down.

  1. This may be one of the cutest ideas I have ever seen~

  2. Thank you for the GREAT idea. I made the caps for my daughters pre-k graduation ceremony. Everyone loved them. The only change to make them a little more kid friendly was to use square chocolate covered cookies instead of the chocolate square.
    Thank you again!!

  3. Sheer brilliance!!! Love your blog, and am goign to make these for my nephew this weekend!

    Camilla :)

  4. I am such a fan! I love your work and am inspired to be more creative in the kitchen!

  5. I wanna make these things for my boyfriend who’s graduating from university this Saturday. (should make a mini celebration for him.)I’m sure he’d love them (they’re candy)

  6. I totally love this idea! Brilliant! I love the combination of Reese buttercup and Godiva! Yummy!

  7. you so just completed my dessert table for the graduation party…it may be a preschool graduation…but graduation nonetheless…and these cute candy cup hats? the kids will go crazy! thanks for the GREAT idea!

  8. Thanks for the tip! I’ve got a cousin graduating this year who would TOTALLY appreciate these (and fully recognize the work it takes to make soemthing like this go down…..). I’ll be making some for the first time!

  9. What exactly is melted candy coating? Like just melting chocolate bark? I really want to make these for my sons preschool graduation tomorrow, but not sure exactly what this is that will hold it all together. And what is the little ball on top that is holding the tassle? hulseys@msn.com

  10. It’s a Long shot – if it’s too thick, you can thin it with shortening. If they crack, try re-dipping.

    Marietta – sure. they are just thicker squares.

  11. Could we use Ghirardelli chocolates for the tops of the grad caps, too?

    Thanks,
    PrincessMCE@comcast.net

  12. Hi! First let me say I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of your creative, not to mention just plain yummy ideas! I think I gain a few pounds every time I log on! I have a question though… I just tried cakepops for the first time, apple shaped for my son’s preschool teacher’s (teacher appreciation week) I had a problem with the candy coating it seemed really hard to tap off the excess. It seemed like the coating went on really thick. Also once the candy coating dried it cracked all over!!! Any ideas what went wrong, or any special trick you have to getting it so smooth? Thanks! You can see them at http://seeourlongshots.blogspot.com/

  13. I made these for my neice this past weekend, I honestly thought she was going to faint she was so excited…. thanks for the great ideas!

    Meow!

  14. This is just so amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  15. These are great! I am glad I found your blog!

  16. These are so cute, you always come up with the best ideas!! So I have a question for you, do you happen to have any cute ideas for bridal shower cupcakes? I have been put in charge of making them and I just can’t come up with anything cute. I did you beach scene once with the teddy grams and they were big hits and I did the popcorn from the “hello cupcake” book. And now I just can’t find anyhting, any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Amber blog is http://www.onlywayhow.blogspot.com

  17. Thank you for this idea…my daughter just graduated from the University of Central Florida and I made these for her and her roommate… they loved them and posted them on Facebook!

  18. Bakerella you make such beautiful adorable things.

    Wedding season is coming up and I’ve been wracking my brains over homemade favors to cut the prices. When I stumpled upon your blog, I thought: “cake pops!”

    But just circular ones won’t cut it, the problem is I lack the imagination that you have, and the ability to think of things that are easy and simple, yet look complicated and beautiful.

    I’ve perused completely through your blog and nothing wedding-ey stands out. Could you come up with some wedding pops if you can?

  19. I love all of your creations!
    i would love to dabble in it, but its way to expensvive! but just looking at the stuff you make, makes me twist my hand and wonder what i can do to twike it!
    keep up the post, they are inspirational!!!

  20. I LOVE these!

  21. You are incredible!!

    BTW..please contact me…someone is using your photos to represent their work. From one foodie to another!

    :)

  22. Holly – Here ya go

    http://bakerella.blogspot.com/2008/09/flower-power.html

    Susan Jones – Thanks… I do like knowing.

    Cara – just keepin you on your feet.

  23. Wow, I love the surprise ending…real cake pops. I didn’t see it coming! Fantastic as always.

  24. Love the idea!

  25. You are so amazing! Thanks for these, can’t wait to make them for my daughter’s “graduation” from 4th grade!

    ;-)

  26. Way cute. I made my first cake pops this week. One friend described them as “heaven on a stick.” Thought you would like to know.

  27. You are so creative! I love your website!

  28. Wow! I love these! I’m actually graduating from college next Saturday, the 16th and might try my hand at these for my party. Thanks for the great idea!

  29. Hi Bakerella!!! I love your blog and your cakes…all of them! they look so good! Just wanted to say that maybe you should put a logo or your name on your pictures, to avoid people using them without putting credit to you.

  30. girl you are just amazing!!! have you done any sugar cookies painted w/royal icing yet? i would love to see what you create!

  31. These are so cute!
    Do you think you could publish some photos of your lightbox/photography set-up sometime? Your pics always look so fresh and bright :)

  32. These are adorable. If I didn’t have to drive from Boston to Vermont for my brother’s graduation, I would totally make some for him…

  33. These are super cute. One of my friends is graduating law school soon, so these would be perfect for her. I’d rather do the ones with the molds, but I love the speed with the candy pieces. I think it would work well with Rolos too (one of my friends is allergic to peanuts).

  34. Oh my goodness those are so cute!

  35. Amazing Idea – may I share it on my blog with a link to your and of course all credit!!!

  36. OMG. These are frikkin’ genius!

    Nice play of creativity!

  37. These are freaking adorable. Aaaand, Mr. CakeSpy’s sister is just about to graduate high school! Looks like I just found an awesome way to impress the in-laws. :-)

  38. These are amazing! I work at a private school with a very small graduating class and this would be perfect for our ceremony! I made the classic cakepops for a baby shower at work and they were a big hit, and I think these would go over VERY well too! Thanks for the idea! :-)

  39. i LOVE this idea! amazing and awesome! :o)

  40. LOVE!!! Too cute and clever! I wish I had someone graduating so I could make them

  41. I am gonna try to make some whale shaped cake pops for favors for my son’s first birthday! Can you give me some ideas on decorating the whale–course I will make ’em blue–Help!!!
    vhobrien@comcast.net

  42. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE your blog!!! Yay!!!

  43. This will be so perfect for my hubby’s graduation in April (next year)! You are sooo clever!

    K, so I was looking at crafts online and saw these cute reusable cupcake serving cups, and thought of you! http://www.parties4kids.com/birthdaypartysupplies/W035-1CAT_Cake_CP.html

  44. You so get an A plus, plus, plus on this one!

  45. How you come up with these things is beyond me! Amazing!

  46. those are so fun!! You always have such great ideas! I don’t know if you read all of your comments.. but my sons birthday is coming up and I was thinking I wanted to do something fun that was dump truck themed. Any ideas? Your awesome!

  47. CaSaundraLeigh – Just look for other individually wrapped chocolate squares or use the molds.

    Winter – Sorry, I don’t but wish I did

    Little Chickadee – the ridges would definitely lose their definition, but you could press them in a larger cup mold filled with chocolate like I did with the cake balls.

    Maritza – baby heads :) with candy necklace pieces for pacifiers

    Susan – yes, I’ll show some one day soon.

    SPEAKeasy – what about first aid symbols on white pops.

  48. Too cute!!

    Robin

  49. Again…GENIUS!!!!

  50. have any ideas for nursing? I’m almost done with the nursing program and would love to make some nurse themed presents….

  51. I was wondering if you have made any circus themed cake pops? Your pops are to die for cute!

  52. Those look so cool and so simple – love them!!

  53. wonderful idea – i love it :) you’re so creative, it’s almost disgusting! haha.

  54. I posted a comment earlier and now I can’t find it! Ugh!

    Bakerella, I am obsessed with these cake balls. I love making them. Any ideas on ones that look like yarn balls with needles? I have a few but was wondering if your creative mind had any ideas!

  55. This is A-MAZING!!! I can’t wait to try these out…and eat them too.

  56. These are wonderful. Thank you! I am going to make these for my daughters graduation next week!

    Your site is amazing!

  57. aweseom!!

  58. You are so talented, you need to open up your own store!

  59. those are amazing!!

  60. Awesome! I will attempt to make these. Thank you!

  61. I love it! You are such an inspiration!

    Now, if only I had a grad to give these to…

  62. Those are lovely!! I wish this idea had come last year so I could have made them for my graduation party, but no fear… university graduation is around the corner! Thanks Bakerella, this is FABULOUS!

  63. I’m graduating this year!! Those are great!

  64. I was looking for a idea to give to my class mates these are the best!im the class of 2009!

  65. I just wanted to let you know I adore your ideas!! I just finished my first batch of cake pops last week, and they were definitely a hit! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us all!

    Blessings, Colleen

  66. Super cute! These are too good! My niece is graduating this year so I will have to make her some of these.

    P.S. – Got any baby shower ideas?

  67. SO CUTE!!!
    and easy ^^ I'm so happy you made these<3
    thank you so much.

  68. Could you dip the Reese’s cups in the candy coating or would that not work? Would the candy coating end up negating the purty little ridges?

  69. Adorable! Thanks for coming up with something so cute and clever. My daughter is graduating from Kindergarten and this would be the perfect little favor to make for each student in her class.

    Also, thanks for the square mold idea. Much cheaper than your chocolate GODIVA squares! I do love Godiva!!

    You’re a creative genius!

  70. These are terrific! I just linked to your post in the MyPunchbowl blog about graduation party planning and free invitations.

  71. Adorable as always! You are so incredibly creative!

    http://www.cookincanuck.com

  72. I love these! I’m going out now to make them for my student teacher who is graduating soon! So CUte!! Thanks!

  73. You are an absolute genius!!! LOVE it!

  74. Very cute! You always have the best ideas! Maybe one day i’ll be as clever as you : )

  75. Darling idea!

  76. I will be making these in Red for my son who is graduating this year!
    Thanks!

  77. Seriously cute! You’re so creative!

    Hey, while I’m here, I was just wondering if you had a recipe for “better than sex cake?” I half-thought maybe you’d posted one a while back, but I might just be crazy… so I thought I’d at least ask!

  78. My grad party is coming up in about a month and these will be such a fun addition! Thanks. (BTW, what could I use besides the Godiva chocolate bars, since I am going to have to make a bunch and you mentioned there expensive! Thanks)

  79. I am SO going to make these for my husband’s Master’s grad in October! Thank you!

  80. You are so creative! I just love your site!

  81. This is creatively awesome!

  82. This is EXACTLY what I was hoping you would do this month! YAY! I’m doing a graduation cake for my brother’s law school graduation and I want to give the fondant Gator (he’s a UF man) a grad cap! This is PERFECT! Thanks SO much!

  83. STOP IT. STOP IT!!!! These are too cute. Too creative. :)

  84. I have a few interns graduating in the next few weeks and this is a life saver!!!!!!

  85. That is soooo adorable! it makes me sad that we don´t have these hats for graduation in sweden, i would love to make them.

  86. You’re killing me with all the cuteness here!

  87. Great idea!! So cute! My Niece is graduating, I’ll FWD this link in Facebook!

    I LOVE World Market! I walked by ours today! Yes only walked by…

  88. Haha you crack me up! These are awesome. Very creative idea :)

  89. too amazing!!!

  90. These are so dang cute! I have 10 kids graduating this year between my niece, youth church group and my sons older school friends. This will be a blast to give along with the standard card!

  91. I am in LOVE with American candy – I wish we had those peanut butter cups here in Australia….or perhaps it’s good we don’t!

    Gorgeous as always:)

  92. These are so cute I almost wish I had a graduate.

  93. I’ve been lurking around your site for a while admiring your super cute work. These are brilliant!

  94. Cute!!

  95. brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  96. Wow. I didn’t expect so many comments for this one. Not everyone has a greaduate in waiting. I’m glad you like them.

    Thanks for all the sweet words. Now for some answers…

    Lynn Osborne – about 1 inch to 1.25 inches

    Deric – Are your balls chilled when you dip? also, make sure the chocolate is thin enough and your bowl is deep enough to dip and remove in one motion. You can add shortening to help thin it out.

    Andi Anderson – fantastic!

    Lynette – I hope I get to go back sometime. It was a blast.

    alison Lewis – Thanks!!! Hope all is well.

    Nightngale – probably, but that would me too many more steps for me.

    Ashley – Love it! great ideas.

    Sue Schmidt – yes

    Ashley in Oregon – I think it has something to do with the temperature of the balls being too cold and then dipping into chocolate that is too hot. Also, try rolling them less compactly.
    You can always re-dip if you need to and the cupcake pops never crack.

    jaredsmom07 – apples?

    Amanda – Americolor Brand works best for me.

    bigSIS – really cute

  97. These are great! I am graduating from college and my daughter is graduating from high school. These are going to be great at our party! Thanks!!!

  98. These are AWESOME! I’m going to have to make a whole bunch for my big graduation party coming up!

    (and then think about becoming a real person and, you know, get a job. :P)

  99. My niece and nephew are graduating this year from high school and I am making these! Great job as usual! Best, Alison

  100. AGH! is there anything you cant think of?! These are great!

  101. I’m calling my son’s preschool *right now* to find out how many I can make for preschool graduation! Thank you for the fantastic idea!
    Mandi

  102. Hi, tanks for the send, so cute
    Its a Great IDEA

    salutes from Monclova Coahuila Mexico

  103. I am so making these for my ds kindy graduation. Thanks for the inspiration, it all starts with a FANTASTIC idea!!!!

  104. How do you come up with these ideas? So creative, so cute and so easy! Keep the ideas coming, I LOVE them.

  105. GET OUT! You simply amaze me. I’m totally making these for the kindergarten graduation picnic. Thanks so much for sharing!

  106. I am just going to call you the Assemblage Goddess of sweets! Instead of old stuff combining to make new stuff you take sweet stuff and combine them to make Neat Sweet Eat Stuff!

  107. Me! Me me me! I am graduating! Adorable!

  108. Wow, I love these. I am graduating from high school this month. I may try these for my graduation party….do you know how I could keep them from melting before the party starts?

  109. These are awesome!!! My baby girl graduates May 22 and we are having a huge party for her. She and I are going to make these and we are very excited about it! You are so creative, thank you for sharing all of your great talents with the rest of us!!

  110. Ha ha, these are perfect!

    …actually, too perfect. Is it sad that brown and yellow really are my school colors, so the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup method is a-ok? Yeah… and don’t even get me started on our school mascot!

  111. I’m graduating college on Sunday, and I have to tell you, this was so cute and made me smile. Totally made my day!

  112. too stinking cute!

    Thanks for ALL the inspiration.

  115. the talent you have is AMAZING!

  116. You never cease to amaze me! These are fabulous!

  117. I had seen this idea somewhere else as well and was planning to make them for my husband’s graduation next week. Thank you so much for featuring it though! You are much more detailed and creative. I hadn’t thought of using the airheads extreme for the tassels!

  118. I love the hand made version -I’m a cheapskate!

  119. Oh good grief! I have to make these now – my daughter is graduating! SO cute!

  120. SO cute… Yes it sure is amazing what you come up with… And easy, I could do these!

    ~Really Rainey~

  121. That is so cute!

  122. You ARE brilliant! You know that, right?!?

  123. These are just adorable- I wish I knew someone who was graduating! Thank you for sharing all of your insights on your amazing projects- your tips and photos eliminate a lot of my potential mistakes! :)

  124. K, YOU ARE AMAZING! It almost makes me sick! haha

    The graduation hats are SO cute and very creative. and they look super easy.

    Keep up the good work!

  125. SUPER HAPPY. I work at Godiva. :D I would totally make these for my brother who’s graduating this month, but… I’ll be in Japan! *gasp* These are super cute.

  126. I am amazed by your creativity! These look so cute, clever, and yummy! Isn’t it amazing how much fun you can have with chocolate? Thanks for sharing.

    Mistryl – a good alternative might be to use Dove Chocolates instead. Check out http://www.dovechocolatediscoveries.com

  127. LOVE the graduation pops! I wanted to try something different for my daughter’s preschool class as a sweet treat and these may be the thing. I won’t be using Godiva on 3 yr olds, but I do have the molds to make the pops :) Thanks for your amazing ideas and clever use for all these candies :)

  128. My “baby” is graduating from high school, and her party is 5/30. These are so cool-looking, and something even her decorating-challenged mom can pull off. Thanks!

  129. Darn. it. I’ve been trying with all my might to avoid making any of your goodies but this time…I just have to do it. My son is graduating this spring and these will be SOOOO cute!

  130. So Smart! I love these…like all of your other creations.

  131. You’re so creative! I love seeing (and copying) your ideas

  132. HOW CUTE!!!! What a great idea!

  133. those are so cute! I might have to make some of those for my grad party. hmmmm how to tie those inot a luau themed party?

  134. You probably want to delete the May 3, 2009 comment in Chinese since it is related to porn.

  135. Aww, how cute! I wish I could get something like this for my graduation next year =)

  136. I am graduating from MHCC this year!! These are super awesome!!

  137. These are brilliant! I love how creative you are! :)

  138. I can’t stand it!! You are the most creative person ever… plus then you take adorable pictures of cute little candy creations. Just amazing.

  139. So cute!!! I wish I had seen these last week before preschool graduation. Oh, well… I’ll remember them for next time!

  140. Yet another great idea! Awesome, now I wish I knew some people who were graduating.. ;)

  141. Thank you! I knew that you would come up with something just wonderful that I could borrow for graduation. My “baby” is graduating from high school and he’s been wondering what special thing I’m going to make for the event. Although he acts like he doesn’t really care, I know better. Thank you for all your cute ideas.

  142. Your creativity is astounding! Wish I had a graduate. But, i DO have a friend’s graduate. I could make these for her. If I were nice. Thanks for the idea!

  143. Woo hoo. i love making the cake balls and I may just have to do this one…too cute! I love ’em!

  144. I saw the peanut butter cup ones just the other day. Done nowhere near as well as yours. They left the wrappers on…EW!

    I have a graduate. I have lollipop sticks. I don’t have either of those chocolate molds, but I may have to do this.

  145. Hello Everyone,
    My name is Roger From Albany,GA
    I just wanted to say you could also use Twizzlers rainbow pull a parts as well. I’m very new to all of this so I hope to get to know Everyone, Cheers
    Roger

  146. Fabulous idea and easy. If you don’t have time to make the mortar boards, you could buy ’tiles’ from several gourmet chocolate companies.
    This would be great to make with kids and they can give to their friends.

  147. What a great idea! I might just have to make these for my sons kindergarten graduation!

  148. My daughter is graduating from 8th grade and these would be perfect to make. LOVE IT!!!

  149. Bakerella saves the day. I just spent the weekend trying to think of what kind of cake balls I could make for a graduation party, and you come through with a clever and adorable solution.

    Thank you for sharing your creativity!

  150. LOVE this! My son is graduating from high school (two weeks after my daughter gets married). The colors are gold and black. I think I’ll make the Reese’s ones and paint the cups black. That should be just about right.

  151. You are just too clever! How do you come up with all these brilliant ideas?! You are truly one of a kind! :D

  152. I’m graduating this year! I would so make these is reeses peanut butter cups were more available in England :(

  153. you are simply incredible!

    you leave me speechless – wow!

    I have a challenge for you – something LEGO ? My son is about to have his 6th birthday at LEGOLAND and is infatuated – any thoughts? He loves Star Wars Lego to make it even trickier.

  154. OMG these are so perfect! My fiance graduates from college this may! So perfect! THANK YOU!!!!

  155. Bakerella, you are a legend!
    Just where do these ideas all spring from??/!!!??
    Let’s hope I remember these in 4 years when my oldest daughters graduate!!

  156. Impecable!!! Wonderfull

  157. Fab!

  158. i am graduating this thursday, and your candy cup caps definetly give me a idea of what to give to my ex classmates as a gift! thanks!

  159. love them. got to make some.

  160. What can I say??? You’re amazing.

    Your creativity has no limits.

  161. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again … I get so excited when I get an email alerting me of a new blog entry from you!! You are seriously the most creative person I have ever “met” (in quotes because I have only met you through your blog and Martha appearance)! Fabulous idea! I am graduating from nursing school next March, and you can bet I will be making these for my schoolmates! :)

  162. These are so cute! I’m bookmarking them and definently going to make them next year when I graduate :)

  163. thats so cute… never would have thought of that…

  164. That is such a cute idea!

  165. you’re a freaking genius!!!

  169. I have to admit that these are really cool! Thanks for the photos and explanations of both varieties!

  170. you’re a genius!
    greetings from Brazil.

  171. AHHH these are SOO cute. I’m throwing a surprise party for my hubby’s graduation from law school and these look so fun!!! I know I’m already going to make red, white, and blue cake balls (his school colors) but these caps look awesome too!!! Now off to find all the ingredients!!

  172. I wish knew someone who was graduating. There are so cute. Maybe I’ll make them for my daughters class as they will be “graduating” to 4th grade next year.

  173. They’re SO cute! I can’t believe how creative you are!

  174. Oh my goodness how cute!!!!

  175. Sorry abt deleting the last post forgot to proof it….Thanks so much for making these. My dtr grads in 3 wks and I needed something fun.this is perfect….Jo

  176. OOOH! Thanks so much, Bakerella! I was so excited when I saw this post :) This will come in so handy at my brother’s grad party in a few weeks :)

  177. YEAH! I am so excited! I was wondering what to do for my sons graduation, and then saw you made this in brown. Wondering how to make them in my sons school colors, scrolled down a bit, and you had them in blue, his colors~ YOU ROCK!

  178. so very clever I could have used this last year

  179. Haha, that is awesome.
    In approx 2 hours I was going to go home and do THIS EXACT thing for my sisters graduation. And then I check my google reader and see your. Brilliant. Because I live in New Zealand we dont have the lollie range that you do, so have had to substitute a few things, but the mini-m&ms were on my list.
    You rock!

  180. awesome!! i am constantly amazed by the ideas you come up with too!

  181. Oh my gosh! Your creativity never fails to shock me! I’m still kind of speechless. Wow.

  182. These are so cute! Unfortunately i dont know anyone that is graduating this year.. But i could definitely use them next year! Thanks for the awesome ideas! =D

  183. Adorable graduation caps! Thanks for the cute idea.

    I love using the Airheads belts for scarves for snowmen. I dip Nutter Butters in white chocolate, use mini chocolate chips and mini m&m's for details.

  184. These are just adorable! I’ll definitely be giving these a shot someday!

  185. You are so awesome!~ I have just passed on the most adorable blog award to you! Come to my blog to pick it up! YOU ARE SO AWESOME! Tabitha

  186. One of these days I’m gonna make one of your darling creations!

  187. I’ve been planning to make these for a while, but I hadn’t even thought about the cake pop version. This just gives me more options! :)

  188. Wow, outstanding, you did it again. If I knew a graduate I would make these.

  189. These are just too cute!!! LOVE THEM—I have a senior next year—I will have to keep these in mind~

  190. I am so going to make these for my daughters kindergarten graduation!! I made the cupcake pops for her birthday treat and they were such a hit, these will be even better!!! Thanks!!

  191. I’ve seen the Reese cup ones around, but I especially love your cake ball version! I love that they are colored and can be made in the colors of the graduates school! Very cute!

  192. I’m obsessed with your site … LOVE it! Thanks for posting.

  193. You are so creative! I just love these!

  194. My jaw is still on the floor…WOW. You are so creative! This would be so much fun for a graduation party!

  195. So cute!
    I’m graduating next year…will you make me some then?

  196. HOW do you come up with all this stuff?!? Another beyond creative idea!

  197. That’s a great idea! I kind of wish I was graduating or knew someone who was.

    Btw…World Market is fantabulous. Go there and go often.

  198. I find myself just amazed at the way you take an ordinary piece of candy and make it something just wonderful! I think I may steal this idea for a preschool graduation!

  199. Oh! Clever! Clever! Cute and CLEVER!!!

    Bakerella, you are queen! Thanks for another FABU idea!

  200. These are such a good idea; I especially like the blue ones! I’m graduating this year, which gives me an excuse to make them…
