Wedding Cake Pops

Wedding Cake Pops

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.
Wedding Cake Cutters
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.

Wedding Cakes

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.

Jumbo heart sprinkles

These jumbo heart sprinkles work out great for the top of the cakes.

Just look how simple and sweet these are.

Wedding Cake Pops

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.

  44. Hi Everyone,

    This is RICH. Male lead in “The Wedding Cake Pops”…a Bakerella story :)

    It’s been an absolutely AMAZING ride the last 24 hours or so. Mel and I wanted to personally thank everyone for their warm wishes and comments. Reading through some of the comments has been so emotional yet so rewarding. It’s been truly overwhelming in such a great way that it’s really enhanced this experience for us.

    Tonight Mel and I had a chance to “debrief” with Bakerella so stay tuned for the details and background on how all of this transpired.

    Lastly, I wanted to thank Bakerella for allowing me to use her blog as my proposal venue. She’s simply so amazing at what she does and I could not have done this without her. Words can’t express how grateful I am for making this moment so memorable.

    Thanks again to everyone and stay tuned!!!

  45. Awww…I just got all teary-eyed!

  70. I think a of Melissas’ hearts stopped while reading to this! Mine included!

    Congrats to the lucky couple!

  71. That is so beautiful! I’m glad she said yes!

  72. That’s one lucky girl! I can’t even imagine knowing a guy who knows Bakerella. Glad she said yes! Now we need to know the when and where info!

  73. Ahhhhh, my heart is fluttering like i was the one being proposed too…How SWEET is this!!! Took me off guard too. This is such a nice surprise. Totally put a smile on my face.

  74. This is SOOOO cool! Just gorgeous!

  75. Did Melissa say yes????? :)

  76. That was awesome! Didn’t forsee the actual proposal part of the post – that was a surprise. Congrats to Melissa & Rich!

  77. Wonderful proposal!

    I’m completely in love with these pops, but I can’t even figure out how to make the regular ones right, much less these. Every time I make the regular ones, they seem too heavy to stay on the stick.

    Did you happen to take pictures of the step by step process?

  78. Yeah congrats to the happy couple! How cool to propose on Bakerella’s site! Pops are too cute by the way.

  79. Very smart and sweet my dear bakerella.
    Congrats to The Melissa and Richard, that’s so sweet!!

  80. to kathy & ervin…congrats…this is soooo sweeeet!!

  81. OH MY GOODNESS! so cute!!!! ♥

  82. i knew something was up! I was like bakerella… wedding season is way over :P I never imagined someone was proposing though. this is so freaking adorable I can’t take it!

  83. To our son Richard and future daughter-in-law Melissa we are thrilled and very happy
    Love Mom and Dad

  84. My mouth actually dropped and maybe I looked back just in case although my name is definately not Melissa! LOL. TOO CUTE!

  85. aww thats lovely!
    what font did you use on the tags?

  86. Soooo Sweet!! I got butterflies when I read that!! So Exciting! Bakerella you are the best!!! :)

  87. congrats to Melissa and Rich!

    Bakerella- that was wonderful, and the pops are absolutely adorable!

  88. Poor Melissa (comment #191) my heart would have stopped, too. And Joyous Times to Mel and Rich who are tying the knot. I totally teared up — and had to read all the comments. How cool? And sweet, and just plain cheery! Wahoo! Don’t we all feel great after reading something like this?

  89. Not only are those super cute and the perfect bridal shower favor, but that post got me teary eyed!!!

  90. That was AMAZING!!! Congratulations!!!!

  91. oh my gosh!!!! i’m pregnant so it doesn’t take much, but that is totally making me cry a little!!! how sweet and fun!!! congrats!!!!

  92. PS – Congrats to Mel and Rich!! (and to bakerella for being sweet enough to help him out!)

  93. I love baseball – but I always say that my (hopefully) future fiance needs to understand I don’t want to be proposed to via Jumbotron in center field. Just something about it being so public is just not me.

    This? Would definitely work though. :) So adorable.

  94. Wow!!! Too cool!!! Of course, she said YES!!! If she hadn’t I’ll bet I know plenty of ladies that would! Rich, you (and Bakerella!) ROCK!!!!

  95. Hooray! What a wonderful way to propose… and how sweet of you to help out, Angie.
    Hope everything turns out wonderfully…. now you will have to make a ton for their wedding! ; )


  96. They are beautiful! What an amazing moment. Melissa and Rich are going to have all of these sweet comments to remember for the rest of their lives. That would make for a great coffee table book!!!!

    Way to go Bakerella.

  97. How adorable!!! Congrats to Melissa and Rich! SUCH a cute idea!

  98. Coolest proposal ever!


  99. OMG … OMG … OMG … I was crying like a baby … what a Cool Cool cool way to propose!!!! Gosh I hope she said yes … I’m wanting to hear what she said RIGHT NOW!!!! LOL …. Congrats Mellissa and wow .. Bakerella .. you are by far the coolest person ever!!!!!

  100. I love these! And woo-hoo to Melissa and Rich!!!! What a great way to pop the question.

    Also, I may be the first to ask this question, not sure, but was wondering if you could show us a picture of the type of bowl you use when dipping. I’ll go back and look in case you’ve already done so. I always have problems with getting them to look nice when it comes to dipping. I think my bowl could be upgraded.

    Thanks so much and awesome job as always!

  101. That is amazing! Congrats Melissa and Rich!
