Puppy Pop Decorating

Cake Pops (process described here)

  • They can be dipped in chocolate, white or peanut butter candy coating for variations.
  • These were made with chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting.

Make the ears

  • Draw an elongated tear drop shape on the back of a plastic spoon with a Sharpie.
  • Turn the spoon over.
  • Trace the shape with a candy writer or either use a squeeze bottle filled with melted candy coating.
  • Fill the inside of the ear shape with candy coating.
  • Place in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
  • Remove and pop the ears off the spoon and store in a safe place until ready to use. These can even be made the night before.

Now for the noses

  • Cut mini size m&m’s in half or
  • Use a candy writer to draw your nose on wax paper and allow to dry until ready to use. These can also be made the night before.


  • Use squeeze bottle or candy writer to “glue” the pieces on the pop.
  • Place a drop of melted candy coating on the back of pre-made nose and place on pop.
  • Draw the eyes and mouth using the edible ink pen.
  • Use glue method to attach the ears and candies for the collars. Hold each for a few seconds until set.
  • Allow the Puppy Pops to dry and serve. Be careful with them, though. Their ears will be fragile.

  31. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I too want to know how you get them so round – I’ve made the cake pops, with much success, but the bottoms are a little flat – still pretty though!


  32. That is great – I guess technically you could use the same technique with cats, just make the ears different!

    I can’t wait to see what you have in store for Halloween!


  33. I love how you lay out the instructions as if we’re all capable of recreating them. So cute!

    I bought one of the camera lenses you recommended, it should be here on the 10th!

  39. i am at a loss for words… i just wanna hug all your puppy pops when i saw them. great job!

  40. I could die from the cuteness! I love when you post the cake pops in different themes. For Halloween I was thinking of trying them for the first time and try and shape them like pumpkins…I will see how they turn out. You are so creative and love checking out your new projects!

  45. You’re got my creative juices flowing – thanks! I’ve got a ton of ideas for making cake pops now – like baby pops for baby showers (Wilton makes little mini candy pacifiers you could stick in them), bride and groom ones, cat, pig, sheep, cow…you name it, I’ve started to think about it!

  46. STOP IT! Don’t you know you’re killing us with the cute! Seriously, when are you going to do a book?

  47. Oh my gosh!! You are brilliant! You are truly one of the most creative people I’ve ever “met” (even though we’ve not actually met, I feel like I know you!)!!! These puppies are so darn cute! You absolutely must write a book … I know so many people (including me!) who would buy it! Fantastic!! :)

  48. Shut UP! I love these!!!!!!!!! OMG, I can’t wait to make them!!! You are WAY too creative!

  49. Super, super cute!

    You are so good! You may just knock Martha off her throne one day…

    And maybe I should start working on a book. I just need another me.

  51. Just when I thought your cake pops couldn’t get any cuter…

    These are sooo cute!!

  52. these are 2 cute! love the flappy ears!

  53. soooooo, so cute!! :)

  54. Bow-WOW! Not only for kids, I know many adults who will bark with excitement for these!

  55. Those are the cutest!

  56. Very very cute! Unfortunately I just threw a puppy birthday party on the 5th for my step daughter. These would have been perfect for it. :D I may still have to try it ‘just because’ sometime.

  57. I love it! Great techniques…like others, I started thinking of all the other animals you could make using this as the model.

  58. I don’t know what else to say about these that hasn’t already been said! They are AMAZING, right down to the photo. I love how the lollipop stick wraps around the “O” in the graphic. Is that done in Photoshop?

  59. You are genius! I am always amazed by the beautiful creations that you come up with!

  60. Jenn – just wait… I have more in store.

    kira – thanks

  61. Bakerella..you’ve done it yet again. My little guys are obsessed with puppies lately..I so cant wait to make these for them. You need your own show on the FOOD NETWORK!!!! Some of us should ban together and write the execs..you serioulsy should have your own show. I would even love a youtube webcast once a week*fingers crossed*

  62. Oh my goodness…you are my hero!
    Can you please please pretty please do us all a big favor and post your Halloween ideas early on, so us losers have time to ape your greatness by the time Halloween rolls around? Pleeeeeeeeease!

  63. I just want you to know that not only did I order gourmet writting pens, I have been searching far and wide for the old Mr. Sprinkles!!I’ve just started blogging and you are so inspirational! Thanks for all the cute ideas!

  64. You have outdone yourself this time! How DO you get the chocolate to look so smooth? I used the kroger bark when I did mine and had a horrible time getting it to look so good!

    …and are cats next? :)

  65. You are amazing!! I wish I could pull things off half as good as this!! The dogs are so cute and I must agree they are perfectly round!

  66. I wonder, would tootsie rolls be too heavy for the ears? I wonder if that would be easier no?

  67. Okay so the dogs are just too darn cute!! Love them! A friend and I attempted just the regular ones for the first time the other day! You can check them out here:
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  68. Adorable!!!

    Anonymous – okay, I’ll try!

    Erin – you’ll love the pens. I’ve only used the black ones, but they work great.

    Blogger Adrienne – they’d be impressive for sure.

    lizzy-loo – you’re welcome

    Shari@Whisk: a food blog – you’re welcome.

    aterwilliger – defintiely. It’s on my list.

  88. Those are too cute. I was really inspired by your recipe for these “pops” so I made these for a four year olds birthday party:


  89. Charlavail – Awesome job. I’m sure they were thrilled!!!

    And I’m jealous of that fridge. I don’t have any extra space in mine.

  90. Thank you! I also made a wall-e cake and it was kind of funny because they all reached for the eve-pops and ignored the cake haha. Yes, it took quite a bit of rearranging to make them fit.


    Thanks for the inspiration!

  91. cute cute cute cute & cute… Lovely cake pops. I was on holydays last week and this has been a beautiful wellcome surprise for me. ;-) You're awesome.

  92. These are so great. I am new to the blog (and love it) but wonder how you serve these or keep them upright?? And does it have to be cream cheese frosting or will other frosting work??

  93. charlavail – that’s funny.

    morgana – welcome back, I missed ya.

    Stacy – you can stick them into a styrofoam block. And you can use any flavor cake and frosting combo you like.

  94. sweetie, this is so great, i love it :D :D i am not a cooker but i enjoy so muc looking at the creative sweets you come up with in your blog :D thanks for sharing your creativity :D

  95. gis – glad you like everything. Thanks for taking time to say so.

  96. Once again…so CUTE!!! I also wanted to say that I bought some different food markers from a nationwide craft store and returned them after they didn’t work on the chocolate…I have ordered the brand you recommended and look forward to making jack-o-lantern pops…what can I say, you got the idea rolling of what else to do with your pops!

  97. Yeah, I think you’ll like the americolor ones. At least the black ones anyway. Those are the ones I know work for sure.

  98. You are amazing! I am really new to the whole world of blogging. You have inspired me to bake again and to start a blog!! I made your cupcake pops for work and my babyshower themed pops are on my blog.
    Keep the great ideas coming.

  99. oh!!!! I just think you are absolutely brilliant!!!!! I am having so much fun searching around your blog.. so glad to have stumbled in your direction :)
