The Lorax Cake Pops


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.


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

It’s time.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


He’s easy to make.


Just dip, dry, then decorate.


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


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


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.


Replace your toothpick when it gets gloppy.

Or else your cake pops will get kinda sloppy.


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.


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.


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.


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



Much better.


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.

For now I will just admire and dream… maybe some day! Thank you for sharing these!

  50. Gah. I just love you and everything you do. These are adorable. Perfect. So much inspiration!

  51. WOW!! These are too cute but i dont think i could come any close and i wouldnt have patients. Abvously you do

  52. Oh my gosh! You never cease to amaze me with your creativity! I am so glad to hear that you were compensated for this. :)

  53. You are a genius! These are true works of art.

  54. I am thrilled you were compensated. I feel like everywhere I go, people are ripping off your ideas and passing them off as their own. You should be compensated. You are amazing!

  55. These are all so cute and sweet ..almost, but not too cute to eat! Sorry, i couldn’t resist tossing in my own rhyme ;o)

  56. bakerella i made your round cake pops yesterday for the first time ever. They were very sweet in taste but when i left them in the frezzer for a day they tased much better LOL

  57. Those are so cute! I bet they taste great!

  58. Absolutely adorable! Thank you for the tutorial!

  59. Absolutely adorable. (And of course you had to rhyme… how could you not?) I linked back to you in my blog for Lorax birthday party ideas!

  60. Will you make me about 10 and just mail them to me?? This would be perfect for a team ice breaker I’m planning which will be held in a few weeks. Can you email me with your price to make & ship? Thanks! jill

  61. These bring back so many memories of reading The Lorax to my son. He loved how they chopped down the Truffula trees with one smacka! Oh those trees! It’s just a great way to teach the young one (and some oldies, too) about the pollution and how it comes to be created and then how it can be solved. I’m sure your cakes will be a great hit too.

  62. Love them! I love to bake and these are just so creative and adorable! What kind of coating do you use for the pops? Is it fondant? Thank you and keep it up!!!

  63. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, you come up with even more. These are so cute! You did a fantastic job on them.

  64. These are too stinking cute!!! I LOVE them!!!!

  65. I found you on the google reader but had to come to your site to say I am truly impressed. I can’t wait to show my daughter. She’ll want to try it right away. :)

  66. what the WHAT??!?!?! Wait….WHAT????
    You are cray cray. I don’t know how you do it.

  67. Oh dear! they are so adorable! Children will surely fall in love with them.

  68. Love ’em!!!!! So cute.

  69. Oh my gosh! They all look sooo cute! I love these! :D

  70. Oh my gosh, that full body version is too cute to eat!

  71. So freaking cute! I love them! The movie has inspired me so much! Gonna see it with my kids!

  72. WOW, WOW, WOW, you are A M A Z I N G!!! Good bless you, forever and ever.

  73. Okay – if I wasn’t excited to see The Lorax movie, these would have done it! Well done and thanks!!

  74. Wow! This is so creative. Do you have any ideas for Disney Classics? i.e. Little Mermaid?

  75. Hi Bakerella!

    I was standing at the bus stop today and saw the Lorax ad drive by. I was just thinking about making Lorax cupcakes and/or a cake for Earthday…and then here you go making them into cake pops! Thanks once again for the inspiration and great instructions!

  76. Those look amazing! I would never be able to make something like that!
    This is a bit off subject but do you know about tempering chocolate? I have a question about it. Once you are finished tempering it and are keeping it at 88 degrees F. Do you have to keep it at that temperature forever?
    Please reply!

  77. Those are SO amazing!!

  78. WOW!! So cute, gotta have my mom help me make these!

  79. I can’t wait for the movie, my girls want to see it so bad. I love the pops!

  80. AMAZING, so cute! Love the full Lorax, you’re just so creative!

  86. OMG! These are soo cute! Especially how you made the lorax’s body.

  87. The Truffula Trees…so cute!!! I’m going to have to make those this summer!!!

  88. Now how do you make Taylor Swift cake pops!?!?

  89. You are so creative!

  90. Those are super duper adorable. I love the trees best, but that is mostly because they are sparkly!

  91. Oh My Goodness! These are the cutest things ever! Your creativity is out of this world.

  92. I am overwhelmed by your creativity. These are absolutely adorable!

  93. These are too cute! I think another round of Dr. Suess pops would be a great idea, especially if they are green eggs and ham!

  94. As I was scrolling through your post, I was thinking, “Wow. She did it again. SO COOL!”
    …then I kept scrolling *ooh*…and scrolling *ahh*…then I think I died of cuteness overload when I saw the full bodied Lorax. Amazing!! Thanks for sharing your creativity!

    And for the record: You are a great poet. haha

  95. Love these! Precious as always!

  96. 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~


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

  99. 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!” :)

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

  101. 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.

  102. Outstanding!!! Love them!

  103. 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.

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

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

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

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

  108. 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 :)

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

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

  111. 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!

  112. 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.

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

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

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

  116. You are so talented and patient!

  117. 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***

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

  119. 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!!!!

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

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

  122. Why are you so awesome!?!

  123. I DIE! TOO CUTE!!

  125. Unbelievably amazing! I did a school project on The Lorax a few weeks ago and since then I’ve been obsessed with the movie! These cake pops just sent me over the edge! Amazing!!
