I made some egg cake pops!
They’re really cute … But they’re not for Easter.
Instead I made happy little Humpty Dumpty Cake Pops for a baby shower that my friend Cupcake Julie threw this weekend. It was an all out Humpty-themed Eggstravaganza. And when I get the pics all together, I’ll show you some of the fun elements she created for it. If you remember this Candyland Christmas post of her party decorations, you can probably guess that she doesn’t hold back on the details.
But first up… here’s a Humpty How-to.
Follow the instructions for making Basic Cake Pops and roll them into egg shapes instead of balls.
Try using a piece of wax paper to help shape the balls into eggs.
Roll the egg-shapes against the wax paper and it will help smooth out the sides.
When they’re all shaped, chill them until firm.
Then it’s dipping time. Dip. Dip. Dip.
Make sure you have enough melted candy coating in the bowl to completely dip and remove the cake pop without having to stir it in the coating to cover.
Eggcellent! … and a blank canvas to decorate Humpty.
Or if you want to make pops for Easter, you can totally do that, too. Take a look at this post for some easy Easter Egg Cake Pops.
Humpty is actually dipped twice. Once the white coating is dry, gently untwist the lollipop stick from the cake pop and dip the bottom of the egg shape in a second color of melted candy coating.
Just hold the egg shape and submerge the bottom half in coating. Remove, shake off any excess and place the lollipop stick back in the bottom of the egg.
To help Humpty get dressed, fix his collar. Use a toothpick dipped in melted white candy coating and draw a collar shape around the blue coating. Do one side at a time and sprinkle white sanding sugar on top. Then use the side of a clean toothpick to help straighten the edges while the coating is still wet.
Dot on white candy coating for noses using the end of a toothpick and draw on sweet happy faces with a black edible ink pen.
Finish decorating his outfit with a few more sprinkles to dress him up. Humpty needs party clothes you know.
- Americolor Gourmet Writing Pen for faces
- Luster Dust for rosy cheeks
- Sanding Sugar for collars and hat
- Pastel Confetti Sprinkles for buttons
- Yellow Miniature Heart Sprinkles for bow ties
- Ice Cream Cone Candies for hats
I used the same ice cream cone candies I used for the bunny cake pops last week. This time I used some kitchen scissors to cut off part of the round end. That makes it easier for the cone shape to sit on top of the cake pop. Attach it to the pop with melted candy coating and then draw on more coating around the base and sprinkle with sanding sugar to cover up any gaps where the two meet.
The ice cream cone candies aren’t super common. You can find them here, go without hats or find another cone or hat-shaped candy to substitute. Just get creative and have fun.
Hope their happy faces make you smile.
And I can’t wait till you see the Humpty Dumpty decorations from the the baby shower Julie threw. They are pretty freaking amazing! … Coming soon.
P.S. Anyone have the Humpty Hump Dance song in their head right now. I do and I think it’s stuck there.
