I’ve received a ton of requests for wedding cake pops so I thought today would be a good time to show you some. Here’s a simple wedding cake shape that you can use and decorate as you desire.
Read the basic instructions for making cake pops, and then use following directions to turn them into miniature wedding cakes.
After you have rolled out the cake balls, use two different size cookie cutters to make the shapes. You can use small cutters like these to shape the cake and frosting mixture.
They’re not too big … the round cutter is about 1 1/2 inches wide and the crinkle cutter is about 1 1/4 inches wide.
Press one cake ball into each mold until the mixture fills up the cookie cutter shape. Remove any excess and you can reuse.
Remove mixture from the cookie cutters carefully so the shape stays intact and place on a wax paper-covered baking sheet.
When you have your shapes made, melt white candy coating per the directions on the package. Apply a thin layer of coating to the bottom of the smaller shaped cake, leaving the center uncoated. (This will make it easier for the lollipop stick to be inserted.)
Then place the small layer on top of the larger layer, coating side down. Press gently and let the candy coating set like glue. Place cakes in the refrigerator to keep chilled before dipping.
When you are ready, dip the tip of each lollipop stick in coating and then insert into the bottom of the cake about halfway. Then dip the wedding cake pop in a small narrow bowl of melted candy coating so that you can dip and remove the entire cake in one motion.
To make sure the coating is fluid enough, you can add some shortening or paramount crystals to help thin it out.
Remove from the candy coating, tap off any excess gently and place a jumbo heart sprinkle on top before the coating sets.
Let dry in a styrofoam block and then attach decorations using more melted candy coating like as glue. You can use sugar crystals, confetti sprinkles or even pipe on details like dots or swirls with more candy coating. You could really go all out with different decorations and colors.
These jumbo heart sprinkles work out great for the top of the cakes.
Just look how simple and sweet these are.
You could give these cake pops for:
- An engagement party
- A wedding shower
- Wedding favors
- You could even propose with them
Imagine how cute they would be with some sweet little tags.
Okay, forget imagining… let me just show you.
I was going to ask if she said yes…
and I see you commented!
YOU are awesome…
and this was so fun!
Oh My God …
Those pops are so cute !!!
Congratulations Mel & Rich !
OH MY!!!!!!!!!!!! How cute, glad she said yes. :)

Omigod! That is the sweetest, cutest, adorable, and most original proposal! Congratulations to Rich and Melissa! :) :) :)
Oh how sweet is that?! I almost answered myself… I guess the guy had something to do with it too otherwise it wouldn´t be any proposal right? Really cute and thoughtful. Hope to hear a response from Melissa…

Anyways, we wanted something for inside the box for a little trick or treat! I will e-mail you the results, I’m sure it will be interestinng and funny! Thanks for your awesome tips, you are fabulous!
