Happy Halloweenie!

Sparky Cake Pops

Halloween is just a few days away, but I want to share one more cake pop creation with you guys. I made these Sparky pops for Disney’s new website Spoonful. They’re inspired by Disney’s stop-motion 3D animated film, Frankenweenie from Tim Burton that opened earlier this month. If you haven’t seen the movie, Sparky is brought back to life by his young owner Victor after a car accident resulting in monstrous consequences.



I loved the idea of making these cake pops in shades of gray since the movie was filmed in black and white. And I’m so happy with how they came out. It’s neat how these are all full color photos, but you can’t really tell since the candy coating is gray and the candies are black and white, too.

Making Sparky

A lot of times I’ll take on a character, but I don’t really know what it will end up looking like until I find the right candies to make the features. You can always use fondant to make features if you want, but using candies to help create the characters is more fun and challenging to me. It really is amazing all the creative possibilities a candy or sprinkle has.


And of course, edible ink pens come in handy too. Especially for dotting eyes and drawing all of Sparky’s stitches.

Black Sugar Pearls

Proportion is key to recreating a character in cake pops. And something as simple as a black sugar pearl may be all you need for just the right touch.

Silver Jimmies

And silver jimmies… ?

Frankenweenie Cake Pops

How about bolts – they go great with the black and white theme, too.

Sparky’s stare even looks kinda spooky.


Sparky! You are too cute… and it’s too bad I’m going to eat you.

Awe, poor Sparky. Can’t catch a break. But he sure is tasty.

Here are the full instructions on Disney’s website Spoonful so you can make your own.


Have a Happy Halloweenie!

And here are more Disney Projects I’ve worked on for their website.

  47. amazing!!! soo cute!!!

  48. The green cake was the perfect touch! You made Frankenweenie so ghoulish and cool!

  49. This is PERFECT. This weekend I was making green cake to make some cupcakes inspired by your Frankenweenie cake from a while ago. But on one batch I tried to use a caterpillar pan (that really wasn’t made for cakes but I was crossing my fingers it would work), and on the next batch I somehow forgot to put cupcake liners in. So I only actually had my third batch turn out correctly, and I have a bunch of green cake in the freezer that I can’t use for cupcakes! I’ve never made cakeballs but I figured that’s what I’d have to do with it all….then lo and behold, today I open my google reader and this post pops up. Serendipitous!

  50. Oh my gosh, these are dead on and CREEPY. I think it has to do with the shading around the eyes…Stop staring at me like that, Sparky!

  51. oh my, this is amazing how it totally looks like b&w photography. i think the bright green cake is perfect!

  52. Bahaha so creepy and cute :D

  87. dear bakerella,

    I love your site and I just wanted to let you know that some of your images are being used by a famous weekly magazine in Tokyo, with no credit or links. I’ve already sent them an email about it, but I thought you should check:

  88. Awwww…such super cute/creepy pops! The green underneath is so striking, too.

    I just got ahold of your new Christmas pops book. The projects are all so darling and perfect!

  89. what Steve responded I’m stunned that any one able to get paid $5116 in one month on the internet. did you look at this webpage Now60.com

  90. OMG…those are absolutely amazing and adorable!!! I am wondering what a ‘sixlet’ is and where can I find some? You don’t have it on your list of items needed on the ‘how to make’ link.

    Thanks so much Angie…you are amazing as usual!!

  91. These are to cute! Your blog and your ideas are amazing! I love to bake and can’t wait to try these. I would love if you would link your ideas up to my SPARK party.
