They’re Poppin’ Up All Over!

The Cupcake Pops I made last month on the Martha Stewart Show are a hit. From Oklahoma to England, Bakerellas all over are making their cupcakes pop and making me smile. It’s been really rewarding to see a little idea I tried out in my kitchen pop up all over the nation. So here are a few cake pops and bites that I’ve come across and wanted to share. I think they all did a FANTABULOUS job! And, If you have a minute for some sweet stuff, click on the arrow below.

And here are links to their posts so you can tell them what a great job they did.

  1. I made them but they didn’t turn out as cute as I would have liked and am looking for suggestions.

    Mine were to big…hs anyone had luck finding the smaller cookie cutter?

    Mine also didn’t hold the shape of the cookie cutter or it got mashed as I ws trying to pull it out…were my cake calls not cold enough?

    Any and all suggestions would be great.

  2. Love theses but one problem, mine came out too moist. Can i just add more cake to the allready made balls to firm them up?

  3. as they should be

  4. excelente trabajo… lo pondre en practica …soy mexicana :D

  5. Oh no…no Alaskan’s representing?! And no Eskimo’s? Shame. My daughter and I are going to make some for her valentine’s day party. And my sister’s baby shower…and my other sister’s birthday… :)

  6. I made them too! My friends love it…!
    Thank you for the inspiration.

  7. I made them! The kids love them and i might even let them help next time!

  8. Hi Bakerella! I’m in NC and I finally got around to making these yesterday. They didn’t come out perfect, but my kids are wanting me to make more so I’ll have another try to perfect these.

  9. i finally made these and they were a big hit! thanks for sharing your creation w/all of us :)

  10. I gave it a try! I made pink & blue ones for my friend who recently had twins. See my photo on Facebook.

  11. I haven’t made the cupcake pops, but I have made the cake balls this summer in Massachusetts. They were delicious!

  12. I made some of these for my daughter’s fifth birthday treats to take to school. They can be found on flickr under retromolar. They turned out so cute. Kelli

  13. I just had my daughter’s cupcake-themed first birthday party featuring your pops and they were a big hit! THANKS!

    Here is the link:

  14. Recently made these…I have been wanting to for the longest ;)

  15. I made these! They were fun!

    Lona- California!

  16. I made them for my daughters 2 year birthday…All the kids and the parents LOVED them!! Thanks Bakerella!!

  17. I am having so much fun trying different ways with these. I made these with strawberry and white cake and a vanilla frosting. The happy face was with chocolate cake and vanilla frostinf. Maybe next time it will be chocolate and chocolate. I have a lot of ideas for the holidays also. Thanks for sharing this wonderful treat. My whole family just loves them.


  18. I’m obsessed. They certainly didn’t turn out as pretty as yours, but what fun!

    A few photos of pops made for 2 recent baby showers (and some cupcake decorations, too):

  19. I’m late to the game, but very excited to share my first cupcake pops!

  20. thanks for the comment! of course you can use my pics! the whole office loved them and i have decided it was worth it! the time consuming part was forming the little cupcakes i think. i couldnt get the chocolate coating thin enough without using oil. im going to make them again for sure!

  21. I love your creative ideas! Here are my cakesicles… serving my friends in the big apple.

    from Cavitybuster + Kokoclown in NYC

  22. melly here from Indiana.
    I made them today. :)
    I am a god to my friends this day. Thank you.

  23. just did another round of cake bites…and i have some questions for you about your photography but couldn’t find your email address…if you’d be willing to answer a few questions, email me at eazylizzy at gmail dot com. thanks!

  24. I made these too! Check out mine here:

    They were delicious and pretty but not nearly as pretty as yours. You make it look so easy.

  25. I found your website and decided to make some myself. Check it out…


    They were the hit of the party!

  27. Beki And Anne – love them!

  28. They were tons of fun!

  29. I call them robot-monster pops. they didn’t turn out as roboty as I thought, but still cute and a hit at my son’s robot/ugly doll party.

  30. I’ve been looking at all your pops and getting the pics together. So sometime soon, I’ll come out with round 2. Great job all.

  31. I made the cupcake pops for the first time for father’s day. About 5 of them did not make it on the sticks to the party since it was 90 degrees outside and it was a 30 min drive!! Next time I will put them in a cooler!

    I can’t wait to try it again.

    Thanks for the wonderful idea and many inspirations from your blog!

  32. These were fun to make, and turned out oh-so-cute! Thanks for the idea!

    Sarah, Missouri

  33. Idaho!
    I put them in a flower pot so they looked like flowers. They of course, were a hit!

  34. these seriously are soooooo good.

    Kellie, Marietta GA

  35. just made a batch of lollipop (not cupcake) style ones-pics on my blog.


  36. I can barely keep up with looking at all these. Thank you all for posting. Can’t wait to do another round up.

  37. I just love your blog! Thank you for the inspiration!

    The cake pops were a big hit in my house. Here is the link:

  38. My sister is being modest and not posting her creations inspired by you…so I thought I would.

    Here they are! Awesome inspiration and super fun blog!!

  39. Finally, after much deliberation, it was a hit with my work colleagues, they were asking for more. The only thing is making them in summer time in Fresno, CA, is a challenge, in and out of the freezer, all worth it, when it all nicely packaged.

  40. I made cupcake bites and a little cupcake box for them to go in.

  41. I finally was successful in making these! They’re wonderful and my little cousin loved them for her birthday!

  42. Here my girls are making them. They are 3 and 5 and they had a great time! They aren’t as beautiful as yours though….

  43. I made them and a couple other treats. I love your blog, you are so creative. Thank you!

  44. You guys are really blowing me away!

  45. I tried them too! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Thanks again,
    Michelle in California

  46. I made them too (coconut cake dipped in dark chocolate ganache)-sorry no picture… and took them to teacher appreciation week at the school – they raved…and asked for the recipe (which I printed out from your blog!)

    I would love to see cute ideas for the end of school/beginning of summer, teacher gift kind of things…if you have any great ideas!


  47. I took these to work today for our monthly Friday social and they were, to say the least, a complete sensation. Even the ladies who usually pass up cake and goodies on the table kept coming back for more. I know I’ll get better (and faster) with more practice but I had a blast making these! Here’s my photos:

  48. I didn’t take any pictures of mine, but my 4 year old daughter loved helping me make these by adding sprinkles and m & m’s. What a fun activity to do together!

  49. You are so creative and amazing. I am constantly turning to your website for inspiration. Have any ideas for kindergarten graduations? :-)

  50. I made them for my husbands birthday! Kajsa from Sweden

  51. My sister made them for our sister in laws birthday party. They were such a hit!! We dont have coloured chocolate in Australia so we could only do brown or white… we used sprinkles for the colour

    thanks for the inpiration!!

  52. Add another Texas to the list cuz, yep, I’ve made ’em too and everybody loved them. I put a link to your website on my blog. I definitely plan to make them again and again and they were the perfect ‘Spring’ gift when presented in a flower pot. Ck out my blog to see the finished product Thanks! so much.

  53. I made these wonderful pops too. A dear friend challenged me to them. I always take a challenge. Thanks for your imagination. I love your ideas!


  54. Morgana – thanks for answering Inga. That sounds like a good idea to try.

    Inga – if you come back, check this link out. She used poured fondant for her cake bites and they are beautiful!

    everyone else, thanks so much for leaving your links. I’m having a great time looking at your pics.

  55. I made them! :]
    Amanda- Texas

  56. You should already know that you have a great blog, but I just labeled you as excellent in my book. Check out my post at SAHM Ramblings for more details!

    Thanks for all the great recipes!
    (Feel free to delete this comment once you click over.)

  57. I’m from Santiago, Chile and I made them a while ago for my friend… They are not halve as pretty as yours, but still, I loved them!
    Here’s the link to that post:
    And here’s the link for my blog:


  58. of course you’ve seen mine:
    (made in MA)

    still waiting on the unveiling this sunday to take more pictures and hope they’re well-received.


  59. I about squealed when I saw this post! Thanks so much – they were so fun to make :)

  60. Bakerella–you can add RHODE ISLAND to the list!!
    I made this for my daughter’s 1st birthday “cupcake theme” and they were a HIT!

    I hope the link works this time!

  61. Morgana – that’s an excellent idea! Thank you, I’ll try it!

  62. All the way from Melbourne Australia- I am obsessed with Cakepops!

  63. Inga, maybe you can coat them in royal icing… (just egg whites and sugar, the same you can use in decoracted cookies, it gets hard and you can colour it too) I’ve been thinking about doing it so but didn’t try yet.

  64. I’m so in awe of these litte cupcake pops but my little girl is allergic to milk! Any ideas for a dairy-free candy coating instead of the candy melts since I’ve not found any without milk product?

  65. Wow, everybody. Great job on these. I’ll definitely have to do another round up to showcase you guys!

  66. Thank you for the link. I also tried your method with the mold and really enjoyed that as well. They’re on my blog today. Thanks for the inspiration and your excellent instructions.

  67. They are all so cute!

    I just made them also as one of the desserts for my daughter’s baby shower here this Sunday~ Thanks so much for the idea!

  68. I did your “off the stick” ones, but I have to be honest, you rock, I had a heck of a time making them, way time consuming. Don’t know if I will brave them again, no matter how yummy they are!

  69. I made these for Mother’s Day & they were a hit! My first test batch was yellow cake. Yummm!

    Second batch was for my Weight Watchers devoted mom. These were made using Diet Orange Soda with Orange Cake Mix & 2/3 can of white icing. Topped with a little sliver of Orange Slice Candy. I think they would be really yummy with a chocolate cup bottom.

    Thank you for the great treat, Bakerella!

  70. OK, so my link didn’t work. They are on my blog @ — see the post called “Something New” – scroll down and see. :) They were a HUGE HIT!

  71. I made them too!! :)

    I made them for my Daughter’s Party. :)

  72. I made these a few times… Once for a baby shower with a pink and brown theme and then again for mother’s day. They are so cute and everyone loves them! I’ve used the Oreo cookie versions and they work out great!

  73. Thanks for listing all of the links. I love seeing what other people come up with.

  74. I made these last week for my daughters birthday party – they were such a hit that my son wants them for his birthday too!! Thanks! Here’s the link to my site:

  75. I can’t wait to make them too. You’ll soon hear from your lovely creations causing a commotion in Brazil! ;)

  76. Question…
    Once you have made the cake “balls” can you freeze them? Has anyone successfully frozen and defrosted them? HELP! I would like to make these for a large party but they are too time intensive for the day before the party.

  77. You can add Alaska to your list! I made Mint Truffle Pops for St. Patrick’s Day this year, and they were a HUGE hit!

  78. Thanks for the idea. I have expanded the idea into bouquets that I now sell, and give as gifts. Check out my blog spot for the pics. You’re great!

  79. I made them for our family Memorial Day gathering here in Maryland. They were a HUGE hit! Thanks for your brilliant ideas and mainly for sharing!

  80. WOW! How fun to see everyone’s creation’s! Thanks for linking me…I’ve already gotten a comment from your blog! I am going to make them again next week for my daughter’s pint sized tea party – they are just the right size for 3 year olds! Bakerella, you are awesome!

  81. PS- here’s a link where you can see them circa June 14th!

  82. I have made them a couple of times, they are wonderful! Well, atleast they taste wonderful. Mine did not look nearly as good as others!

    Here is my link..

  83. I’m doing a trial run before making them for my daughter’s first birthday party! They are SOOO cute. I’ll post pics soon!

  84. I have made them with red velvet cake and chocolate cake. Now I will try them with other cake flavors. My daughters love the cake pops. Thanks for the recepie and for sharing. Here is a link of the picture:

  85. I’ve made these three times already! Once in humidity -(it doesn’t work ;)! Once with the cookie cutter and once in the mold. I love using the candy mold for the bottom! They were a hit with friends and family! Thank you Bakerella for such a great idea!!!

    Here’s the link

  87. I have made these and they are delicious! Thanks again for the recipe and instructions they were a sure hit with my kids (and everyone else who managed to grab one!)

  88. I made them just the other day! here’s my post about them.
    My first name is Brooke, and I live in Oregon.

  89. I was so excited to see that one of the cupcakes in the state of Arizona was for us! Thanks for taking the time to make the little video, Bakerella – I love seeing everyone’s creations! A few days ago I ordered to candy mold that looks like a reece’s peanut butter cup – can’t wait to make them again – although I thought I’d never say that!
