Snowman Cake Pops

I made these snowmen pops last year and just never got around to posting them. I think they are pretty darn cute. The black confetti sprinkles are perfect for two eyes made out of coal. The noses are orange sunflower seeds. The mouths are drawn on with a black edible ink pen.

The hats are made from regular and mini size Oreos.

Cookies make them even more awesome don’t you think.

Want to make some? Follow the basic instructions for cake pops and use the following to decorate:

White candy melts
Black confetti sprinkles
Orange sunflower seeds
Black edible ink pen
Regular Oreos
Miniature Oreos
Toothpicks
Styrofoam block

  • Prepare the hats first. Separate Oreos and remove the creme center. The miniature Oreos can get a lot of crumbs stuck to the side of the creme center, so take a toothpick and scrape the surface off for a white edge.
  • Use some of the melted coating to attach the miniature Oreo to the regular size Oreo half and set aside.
  • Dip the cake pops and while the coating is still wet, attach the sunflower seed nose and the Oreo hat and let dry.
  • Then attach the confetti sprinkle eyes by dotting on a small amount of coating with a toothpick and attach the sprinkles.
  • Draw the mouths with the edible ink pen and let dry standing in a styrofoam block.

And voila … Snowman Cake Pops … or Snowhead Cake Pops … nevermind.

Now these are pretty cute like I said before… they remind me of what a snowman would look if I tried to build one in the yard. Not that we ever really get that much snow here. They are more like ice men than snowmen in the south. But this weekend I was thinking about them and I decided they were a just little too generic.

So I decided to try something a little more iconic.

Prepare yourself. These really are cute.

Stop it. I can hardly believe they are real and I made them.

The hats were made by tinting white candy coating with black candy color to get a dark gray. Then the coating was poured into these candy molds.

Now, if you want a more floppy hat look like the ones in the back of this photo, then try dipping Reese’s in the gray candy color.

Unwrap them first… but you knew that. And make sure the coating has cooled off or else it will melt the candies before you can attach them to the hat base.

Want to make some of these? These are more involved, but you can do it. I know you can because a lot of you have been sending me some fantastic pics of snowmen. With licorice scarves and Rolo hats. Keep em coming. Follow the basic instructions for cake pops and use the following to decorate:

White candy melts
White confetti sprinkles
Red mini M&M’s
Black edible ink pen
Red edible ink pen
Black candy color
Pink jumbo confetti sprinkles (You can find jumbo flower sprinkles and you can skip drawing the petals. I just didn’t have any on hand.
Blue confetti sprinkles
Toothpicks
Orange gumdrops
Japanese somen noodles (you can also use pasta, it’s just a little thicker.)
Disc candy mold
Cordial cup candy mold
Reese’s (optional)

  • Prepare the hats first. Melt candy coating and add candy coloring until the desired shade of gray is achieved.
  • Pour coating in the molds and place in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
  • When completely dry, remove and attach the top of the hat to the base by using some melted candy coating.
  • Then attach a pink jumbo sprinkle to the hat using a small amount of candy coating. Next attach a smaller blue confetti sprinkle on top of the pink one. If you can find jumbo flower sprinkles, you can skip drawing the petals on.
  • With a black edible ink pen draw on the hat details if you like. But be prepared to suck up the ink in your edible in pens.
  • Now dip the cake pops in white candy coating. Before the coating sets, attach the hats to the snowman head.
  • Use a new block of styrofoam… one that hasn’t been used for cake pops before. Because you will want these to stand straight up due to the weight of the hat. If you use old styrofoam, the integrity of the holes may be compromised and they might fall over.
  • When they are completely dry, attach the nose and eyes using more melted candy coating.
  • Draw on the mouths and the eye details with the black edible ink pen.
  • Then cut some orange gumdrops into smaller shapes.
  • Use a toothpick to drill a small hole in the cake pop mouth.
  • Break noodles down into one inch pieces and insert one end into the gumdrop shape and the other into the mouth for pipes. By the way these will be extremely delicate, so space them out in the styrofoam.
  • Note: you can also drill holes into a wood block to guarantee straight holes.

Oh yeah…

Happy New Year!!!

You know I had to kick it off with cake pops, so hope you like em.

    I just wish us Southern Gals could get some real snow this year, don’t you?
    Oh Yeah…..I made a New Year’s Resolution! When I get my kitchen renovations finished, you are invited to come on over and make all the mini pops,and desserts you want. I’ll even taste test them for you :) It would be worth that 2 hour drive, I just know it! :)

    :)

  6. Just tooo cute!

  7. You have me hooked ! I want to come and sit by your side & watch you work. I promise not to talk…forget that. I will try not to talk too much. Frosty is too cute to eat.

  8. OMG…TOO CUTE…I love it and Frosty looks just like the cartoon! How do we send u pics of our creations? I made some holiday cupcake bites for everyone and let’s just say there was a lot of hiding of the goodies. :-)

  9. These are too cute for words. You have once again outdone yourself.

  10. These are splendid, marvelous, so original and unique! You are a master. How can I get a smooth finish on my pops as yours. Yours are unbelievable smooth and shiny!!!! Please advice. Thanks.

  11. That’s the best thing about snowmen… they’re cuteness is totally appropriate after the Christmas holilday is but a memory. Frosty ROCKS!!!

  12. ADORABLE! Love your creativity it is so inspiring! Kuddo’s to you!

  13. soooooooooooooo cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!! i love them!!
    so sweet!!
    ;)

  14. AMAZING!! I only wish you had posted prior to my dd’s b-day in Dec. I made a snowman cake, but these would have been sooo much better.
    I also made my first cake pops during Christmas, the reindeer and the trees, and I got such raving compliments, but I told them yours were much cuter!

  15. Those are so cute!

  16. I envision long skewers with the whole snowman body…………….mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
    Ok, GO!

  17. I can’t stand it –those are SOOOOO cute! Love the gumdrop pipe!

  18. Oh my gosh, they’re perfection! Love Them!!! :)

  19. The Frosty cake pops are out of control cute!! I just love them!

  20. how you don’t have a)your own bakery and b)your own baking show on Food Network is beyond me.

    these are insanely adorable.

  21. How do you do it? When I make mine they are lumpy and the chocolate never looks amazing. I have tried so many ways to make them look good. I do not recommend spinning them at a high speed.

  22. You are so ridiculiously adorable! Thank you for sharing your amazing talents! I pretend to be talented. Does that count?:D

  23. Can’t’ believe you made Frosty pops. They are awesome. Very cute! Crazy. Cute.

  24. cute cute cute cute cute cute cute! I can’t stand it!

  25. Every thing you do is adorable but these are fabulous!

  26. These are too darn cute!!! You amaze me, as I tried the cake balls for Christmas, and they went over well, people loved them, but they were as ugly as can be. Mine seemed to heavy for the sticks and when I dipped them in the coating they would break off. I’m thinking I need to use candy coating instead of the bark coating?

    Anyway, yours are the bomb!!!

  27. O.M.G. these are genius! they look exactly like frosty! i’ve tried making the cake pops a few times but i just can’t seem to get the coating to be even. i can’t even imagine trying to make them as beautiful as these!

  28. Holy Crow ~ Here you go again with all your incredibleness!!!! These have got to be the cutest ever.

  29. Omigosh, ADORABLE! So I made my first attempt at cake pops for a Holiday party, not nearly as cute as ALL of yours. But people were impressed nonetheless. I was having issues with the dipping part. Some turned out pretty cute but others not so cute, I did try to resolve the issue by keeping the cake pops in the freezer until I was ready to dip them, that seemed to help.
    I want to attempt to do it again for a Football party my husband and I are putting together this month. This time I’m going to try and make football shaped cake pops. Fun, I hope they turn out!

  30. my 2-year old was very happy to see Frosty up on the screen again! We watched it on a continuous loop this year. (I also posted a link on my edible crafts column at craftgossip.com) So perfect.

  31. I am a nut over Snowmen! LOVE yours and love the Frosty ones, too! just too cute!

  32. I want a 12 month calendar filled with pictures of cake pops. Seriously. I fall in love with every single one you publish.

  33. how cute are those, too fun!

  34. They are absolutely AWESOME!!! love them!!!

  35. OMG! You have done it now!
    Those are brilliant!

  36. Oh goodness gracious! I love both Oreos and Peanut Butter Cups with equal measure. I’ll take one of each please!!!

  37. OMG – I think these are my absolute favorites so far – the cutest!! Have to go to the store to get suplies to make some with the kids!

  38. Those are excellent, though a tiny part of my heart likes the generic ones a little better. They remind me more of how I made snowmen growing up.

  39. WICKED CUTE!!!

  40. Awww…too cute! I love it when you make cake pops!

  41. oh my goodness, how adorable!!! these are so perfect!

  42. My two-yr-old just saw the Frosty pops and said, “Ohhhh….they look sweet.”

  43. Once again, oh so cute! I did some snowman for Christmas…check them out on my blog!

  44. these are the cutest things… you my dear..are a cake pop artist!

  45. Yes, you are ridiculously good! I know how much work went into those and you must have the patience of a saint!

  46. The Frosty pops are great…I think I will try the Oreo version but will add the pipe. Living in the Northeast, snow is a for sure thing in the winter but I just heard Georgia might be getting some very soon as well so you can make real Frostys soon!
    I’m looking forward to a new year filled with creative, fun Bakerella posts.

  47. HOLY SMOKES Batman! I was just telling the fella how I wouldn’t be able to bake for the next few weeks, and you create those amazingly cute pops. THEY ARE SO CUTE.

  48. These are so darn cute. Great job Bakerella – the detail you put into all of your work is amazing.

  49. CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTEEEE!

  50. Oh, my gosh! Over the top precious!

  51. Wow! Both sets are cute, but the Frosty pops are just amazing!!!!

  52. Adorable as always! I so enjoy looking around your blog, and am determined to try some of your recipes soon. As a matter of fact, I dreamed about baking with your advice last night. Check it out here.

  53. You did it again! They are adorable! My son has had a fixation on Frosty this winter and started giggling when he saw them.

  54. my heart is pitter-pattering as well. i could sit and stare at these snowmen all day long. they look like they have their very own personalities – you’ve injected life into them!! happy, happy new year!! thank you for all the inspiration!

  55. Oh my goodness! These are the cutest snowmen ever! I was in love with the first picture and then I saw the Frosty ones!!! Wow! So very cute! I wish I could follow you around for a day or so and take notes. You are the most inspiring! And you share and play well with others:) We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!

  56. So I love your blog and everything you do but I never comment, but when I read this post the first thing I thought was “HOLY CRAP!” Those pops are too freaking cute. And then I scrolled down and saw the second ones and I almost lost it. You keep one upping yourself with all these creative pops and desserts!

  57. These are just TOO adorable! I am saving this so I have it for next Christmas!! I love them!

  58. Oh man… I think I would have a hard time not eating all of the peanut butter cups before they turned into hats. These are stunning.

  59. Okay, so my New Year’s resolution was to stop baking if there isn’t an actual birthday or occassion and my friends so appreciated that resolution for the sake of their waistlines…but you so are going to make me break it on day 4. Let me tell you, fate is so working against me because leftover supplies from Christmas baking has so left me with everything I need to bust out a rockin’ frosty cake pop. Argh, the internal battle going on right now!!!

  60. I’m in love with these!!! Your creativity blows me away.

  61. How cute! Can’t wait to make them my self!

  81. Love your work!!!!! We’ve made some cute snowman cake balls too!
    http://intricateicings.com/wp/snowman-cakes/

  82. These are great! I wish I had known abou the styrofoam issue earlier because I made full snowmen and a few of them met an untimely demise because of it! I also had a problem that has happened a few different time when making cake pops, the coating cracks open. It doesn’t happen immediately but usually within an hour. I’m not sure if it’s because of how thin the coating is or because of freezing/refrigerating the pops before coating and the cake expands in room temp.

  83. These are so cute! Great job Bakerella. Seeing these snowmen cake pops makes me not think of the cold weather and snow so much! I love your blog, keep up the great work! =)

  84. I just think you are AMAZING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love your site !!!!!!

  85. I’m glad you’re back! I might have to make some of these for my class since they are (much) smaller this semester.

  86. OMG, those are the cutest! My 6 yr old saw them and loved them too. He then proceeded to ask me.. “how come you can’t be like Bakerfella and make me snowmen” ..um.. sorry sweets, mom’s just not that motivated. And yes, he says fella not ella. LOL

  87. Fantastic! And very apt as we have just had the heaviest snow over in the UK than we have had for 30 (yes 30!!) years and there are lots of snowmen about!!

  88. wow, those are too crazy cute, they look loke little cartoons…not cake pops. BRAVO

  89. Unbelievable… You are awesome!
    Happy New Year!

  90. I am freakingout. These are ridiculously cute. You are extremely talented. I just tried to make cakeballs and was lucky to even have them shaped correctly. So, from experience, this is not easy. Do not try this at home, just order here. LOL

  91. Angie, I think I’m in love! Those Frosty’s are just plain adorable!

  92. These are the most adorable thing EVER! I love Frosty – not that it would stop me from eating him ;) Great job yet again!

  93. WOW. That’s all I can say. You’re good.
