Wood you be mine? Beaver Cake Pops.

Beaver Cake Pops

I’ve been busy as a beaver making these cute little cake pops for Valentine’s Day complete with downloadable treat tags. They’d also be adorable for a woodland themed shower or birthday party – minus the tags, of course.

Beaver Cake Pop Add-Ons

Let’s see how these decorative add-ons transform a shaped cake ball into the sweetest edible valentine.

Making cake balls

First up – let’s make some cake balls. Use my basic cake pop recipe and then follow the instructions below to shape and decorate.

Shaped cake ball for beavers

Shape each ball to look somewhat like a pear, but with more of a rounded top like shown.

Let the shapes rest for a few minutes and then place them in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to firm up. Then transfer to the refrigerator to remain chilled and firm, but not frozen.

Beaver Cake Pop Add-Ons

Gather up sprinkles and candies to use for decorating.

Here’s how I used each:

  • Pecans = beaver tails
  • Confetti sprinkles = ears
  • Brown rainbow chip sprinkles = noses*
  • Coated sunflower seeds = arms
  • Dark chocolate morsels = feet
  • Marshmallow bits = teeth*
  • Jumbo heart candies = hearts to hold

* Instead of sprinkles, you can also use a toothpick to dot melted dark brown coating in position on the pop for noses or use a toothpick to apply/draw on vanilla candy coating in the shape of teeth.

Shaping Beaver Cake Pops

To start building the beaver, attach two sunflower seeds, pointed side down to the body using melted candy coating. Note that if you are going to add hearts after dipping, use the heart candy to guide where the arms should go – to allow enough room for it to fit in between them.

Then insert two confetti sprinkles dipped in coating into the top of the beaver body for ears. Return to the fridge to remain chilled for dipping.

Dipping Beaver Cake Pops

When ready to dip, melt chocolate candy coating with some vanilla candy coating in the microwave (to achieve a lighter shade of brown) for up to 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each time, until completely melted and smooth. Then remove a shaped cake ball with arms and ears attached from the fridge. Insert the end of a lollipop stick in the melted coating and then into the bottom of the beaver. Holding by the lollipop stick, carefully insert the body into the melted candy coating, remove and gently tap off any excess.

Before the coating dries, attach two morsels, pointed side down, in position for feet and one pecan in position for the tail.

When dry, dot some melted chocolate coating on the beaver’s belly and attach a heart sprinkle or candy. The melted coating will dry and act like glue.

Beaver Cake Pop Decorating

Final touches! Add some melted dark chocolate coating on the beaver’s hands to match his darker colored feet. You could also leave this step off.

Take a marshmallow bit and press it together flat. Then attach it in position for teeth using a dot of melted candy coating.

Use a lighter shade of brown candy coating (by adding more vanilla coating) to overlap the teeth and then place a rainbow chip sprinkle in position for the nose before the coating dries. You can also dot the lighter brown coating on it’s tiny ears for extra detail.

And finally, use a black edible ink writing pen to mark the eyes, toes and an thin, vertical line to separate his two front teeth.

  1. How i got back my ex husband after he left me and our kids” I suggest you read my testimony. I’m from united state, I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she uses witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Lord Zuma can help get ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it, then he did a love spell for me. 11hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me so much, Oh My God! i was so happy, and today i am happy with my man again and we are joyfully living together and i thank the powerful spell caster Lord Zuma, he is so powerful and i decided to share my story online here. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma for help now..Here’s his contact, spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him: +1 506 800 1647
