The Lorax Cake Pops

IMG_70462

It’s Cake Pop time again. And I made some cute ones for Dr Seuss’ The Lorax movie that comes out March 2.

These were fun to recreate in bright colors and cake.

Here’s a run down so you can go make.

IMG_5620

Okay, I can’t rhyme – Let’s just get this ball rolling.

It’s time.

IMG_6514-2

First up are Bar-ba-loots. They’re super cute and they love to eat Truffula fruit.

Okay, that’s enough. I’ll try not to torture you any more.

IMG_5633

I like to roll my cake balls by hand first so I can make sure I have enough and if I need to, I can make some of them bigger or smaller at the end to keep them all about the same size.

(At the end of the post, I’ll share a pdf you can download for all of these cake pops.)

Once they’re rolled, you can reshape them however you like.

For Bar-ba-loots, roll them into an oval and pinch in on the four rounded corners.

Pinch more at the top than at the bottom and then press down on the top center to make a spot for the eyes. This will also help form those chubby cheeks. You can also use a spoon to make an indention for the mouth if you like.

For the big floppy ears, I used chocolate candy coating wafers.

IMG_5701

Just cut a small edge off with a rounded cutter and dip the wafer into melted candy coating.

IMG_5693

Attach it to the cake ball and let dry.

But did you notice their big rounded ears?

That’s right. One more step. No fears.

IMG_5713

Just dip a toothpick in coating and draw a line of chocolate around the edge.

Then chill the balls. You know the drill.

And dip them and coat them in chocolate for thrills. Someone stop me.

IMG_6488

Decorate with confetti sprinkles and mini M&M’s and a black edible ink pen.

Then these guys are ready to play in the shade.

IMG_6983-2

Right underneath the Truffula Trees.

Okay, these are easy easy. Roll more cake balls like above.

Dip them, then texturize with a toothpick and love.

IMG_5726

Dip them in orange, yellow and pink coating.

I also added a small amount of chocolate candy coating for the yellow and orange to cut the brightness down a little.

IMG_6976

It’s like Dr. Seuss new these would be perfect for pops.

Sprinkle a little sanding sugar on the pops before the coating sets.

Use the really long paper lollipop sticks and then you can cut them down in varying lengths.

A black edible ink pen or a touch of black candy color on a dry brush adds the perfect detail for these paper tree trunks.

But what about the Lorax?

He speaks for the trees you know.

IMG_6615-2

He’s easy to make.

IMG_5750

Just dip, dry, then decorate.

IMG_6711

You’ll need yellow candy coating, a black edible ink pen, white confetti sprinkles and lots of toothpicks.

IMG_5779

A helpful way to get started is to etch where you want to apply the coating for the brows and mustache using a toothpick.

IMG_5786

Then stay in the lines. Or just over them so you don’t see the etchings.

Apply the coating with the tip of your toothpick. As it starts to dry, layer on more and more coating. His mustache is really big. As the coating thickens just before setting, drag out the tips for nice pointed ends.

IMG_6770

Replace your toothpick when it gets gloppy.

Or else your cake pops will get kinda sloppy.

IMG_6763

Use the same technique for his bushy brows.

Break edges off confetti sprinkles, attach with coating and dot the eyes with your edible ink pen.

Dot on orange coating for a little round nose.

Cute as cute as a Lorax can be.

But wait. Just the head?

Where’s his body?

Let’s see.

Untitled-2

Roll the cake ball into an oval and then into kind of a jelly bean shape.

Take two jumbo heart sprinkles and two broken pretzel pieces – dip the ends in coating and insert them into the pop in position for arms and legs.

Insert the legs just toward the front so you leave room to also insert a lollipop stick.

Let the attachments dry before you dip.

IMG_5769

These will look like arms in a minute – resting on his hip.

P.S. – I’m a dork, not a poet.

Once dry, decorate faces the same as above. Just on a smaller scale.

IMG_6783

Then use a toothpick dipped in coating to draw on his skinny arms. (I should have made one wave.)

There.

Sassier.

Much better.

IMG_7006

Here’s a pdf of the Lorax cake pops so you can make your own.

They’d be a cute snack at the theaters if you go to see the movie.

Or during Dr. Seuss story time.

Hmmm. Green eggs and ham cake pops. Those would be fun, too.

Disclosure: I was compensated to make these Lorax Cake Pops, but I might have made them anyway because they’re just too cute. Shhh… don’t tell.

  63. I DIE! TOO CUTE!!

  64. Why are you so awesome!?!

  65. These are adorable. I can’t wait to see the movie.

  66. You are such an artist! What a talent!

  67. Adorable … and the instructions with pictures you gave are so so so helpful … Thank You !!! I just bought your book and I am going to be making my first cake pops soon … our 3 1/2 year old son has fallen in love with cake pops (can you really blame him) … so he has requested I make some for his 4th birthday party … which is to be a Disney Car’s Theme this year … I would be forever grateful if you have any tips or ideas on how to shape Lightening McQueen and Tow Mater as cake pops … and how to decorate them as well. You definitely are a total rock star in the cake pop department!!!!

  68. I’m so completely in love with these. You are a decorating genius!

  69. Oh my!!! These are the cutest pops ever, but I do say that a lot, because there are so many “cutest pops ever”. Soooooooooo sweet! ***LOVE***

  70. You are so talented and patient!

  71. So stinky cute;))) love those!!!! Bakerella you Rock!!!

  72. These are adorable! I like the Lorax pops with the full body (:

  73. Angie, do you KNOW how hard it is to capture character’s faces? Incredibly. You are and have always been brilliant!

  74. Fantastic! :D And ham and egg pops would be awesome! My elementary school used to do a Dr. Seuss day, where people would bring their kids at night and everyone would hear Dr. Seuss stories. Then the cafeteria would serve up green ham and green eggs. As you can probably imagine, cake pops would be more appetising.

  75. I don’t know how you do it. Not only is your talent incredible, but also your willingness to teach us how to make these, and that is a gift!

  76. Those are awesome! I wouldn’t let anyone eat them after spending so much time on them. ;)

  77. You are so amazing! I just love how creative you are and how PERFECT your creations look! This new group is just WOW!!!

  78. You never cease to amaze me, Bakerella! We’re celebrating Dr Seuss week at work (school) soon and these cake pops would be waaay better than green eggs & ham (disgusting really). We’ll be taking our son to see the sensory-friendly screening of The Lorax on March 10th, so I will probably be making these for him :)

  79. Aw! The Lorax or the Truffula Trees are my favorite!

  80. Oh my goodness! How cute are these? I love the full bodied Lorax with his arms on his hips.

  81. Oh my gosh! Those are soo… stinkin cute I can hardly stand it! You are truly gifted and amazing!

  82. Super cute! They’d be great for a kid’s party.

  83. How beautiful!!! And your dorkiness becomes you… very cute instructions/poetry. I actually recorded the soundtrack to this several weeks ago. It looked adorable! I’m excited to see it in theaters.

  84. Outstanding!!! Love them!

  85. There might be a lot of cake pop imitators, but no one can ever be as creative and execute as well as Bakerella! You are amazing.

  86. These made me smile. :-). You are too awesome!!

  87. Hey Bakerella oh how you rule!
    Reading your blog is just way too cool.
    With Loraxes, Bar-ba-loots, and Truffle Trees too,
    Thank thank you for bringing something new.
    My world’s a much happier place,
    because of you, you wonderful Ace!

    ps (I hope no one ever “stops you!” :)

  88. Wow. Just wow. You totally nailed it! LOVE the lorax! He is so cute!

  89. YOU ARE AMAZING!

  90. ADORBS!! Could only imagine sitting in the theater with these bright + cheery pops. Angie, these are so darling and I agree with Lori above ~ you are a pro at this cake pop thing!
    btw: whenever I see that movie trailer I get goosebumps ~ it is breathtaking!! ~xo~
