Take a guess what these are. I wasn’t sure I was going to make them or not. Leading up to my transplant, I had a lot of people suggest that I do, but for the longest time I thought kidney-shaped cake pops would just be kind of weird. That is until I received a surprise in the mail.

More on that in a minute.


You know sometimes I come across strange candy and think I have no idea what I’m going to use these for, but they are too unique not to pass up. This is an example of something I would grab in a heartbeat if I stumbled on it in the store. But these were actually sent to me by Rips along with an assortment of their other takes on licorice treats. It was a little thank you when they found out that I used some of their candies in my book.


I was glad to have them since I had not seen these anywhere yet. I can tell just by looking at them that they could have a wide variety of uses.


And they were perfect to finish off these.

Here’s how to make Basic Cake Pops if you are new to them.


You know I had to go with red velvet.

Appropriate I think.

I like to roll my cake balls out first before I shape them. That way I can make sure I end up with the right amount and also that they are all pretty uniform in size.

If I shape as I go, I find the shapes can start getting bigger and bigger resulting in less pops than I planned on.


But not when I roll first. See, they are all pretty similar in size.


It’s also good to have all your decorations prepared before you start dipping.

Less chaos.


Who would have thought kidney cake pops could be so cute.

Not me.

Not until I received something in the mail that inspired these little guys.

Wanna see?


A plush purple kidney with a cute little face.

Huggable and lovable and sent to me from Wendy at I Heart Guts. Thanks Wendy!

Who knew there would be a market for such a thing.


But evidently there is. Check out my little kidney’s friends… Heart, Lung and Liver.

Wait, here’s more plush organs from their website


and other products, too. Like shirts and stickers and so on.

These are a great get well gift. More fun than a card.

Go ahead. Get some guts. They’ll make someone smile. Promise.


By the way, my mom and I are doing great. My checkups have been mostly good since the transplant. Some weeks my lab work is better than others. Here’s hoping this week is another good one. And thanks again everyone for your continued support.

I heart you guys!  Uhh, I mean … I kidney you guys!

  21. Would you consider a nephcure button on your page? They are dedicated to saving kidneys through research and advocacy.
    is the website where you can pick up a button

    Thank you for bringing attention to the mighty kidney, the power of transplant and the importance of fun and laughter in the midst of it all: Hurrah for kidney cake pops! Hurrah for you and your “new” kidney and feeling better.

  27. LOVE!!!!! my 7 month old son is waiting for his kidney transplant as we speak. I’m typing this from his hospital room. His kidneys were removed when he was 6 days old. I can’t wait to get him a plush kidney and attempt to make the pops. They’d be perfect for a party when we finally celebrate him getting healthy. Thank you!!!!!!!!

  28. What a delightful post! Thanks for making me smile–and here’s hoping that soon, every week will be a good week for you and your Mom until they say, “we’ll see you in six months” , or whatever they say when they are perfectly satisfied that all is well in transplant land…

  29. I continue to be amazed by your wonderfully, positive attitude! When you have lemons…(or kidney cake pops)! Your incredible talent makes me smile and makes my heart feel good.

    I am so glad to know you are well and your mother, also. I continue to pray for you both. :D

  65. Aw…so glad you are healing well Angie. We’ve missed your posts. Take it easy and continued prayers for a speedy recovery. And wow…those are the cutest kidneys I’ve ever seen!

  66. Thanks for sharing. These little I Heart Guts friends would be great for kids {and adults} who are having surgery. I will definitely be keeping them in mind.

  68. haha! Love those little cake pops! That is too funny! I guess I should buy the gallbladder plush since I don’t have a real one anymore… ;-) So happy for you!

  69. These are so adorable! I am so happy your transplant went well! My sis-in-law had a kidney transplant about 13 years ago. She is now and has been on the transplant list for a new kidney for about three years, as the transplanted kidney is no longer functioning properly. She does dialisys three times a day and 8 hours a night. It’s heartbreaking. I so wish I could afford to buy some of these as a fundraiser to help cover her medical expenses.! Adorable!!!!

  70. I think this is so adorable! My niece received a heart transplant in March 2011 and the plush items are sooo cute! :o)

  71. Who knew kidneys could be so darn adorable?!?! So glad to hear that you are doing well. I love your attitude – that you’re willing to make kidney cake pops!

  72. We kidney you, too! :) These are adorable!!!

  73. Those are too cute! I wouldn’t have ever thought to find something like that stuffed kidney, but how cute are they? Wishing you continued recovery!!!

  74. So happy you are up and that sweet kidney of you is functioning properly! These are quite possibly the cutest cake pops ever :) Love them.

  75. Plushed guts….very interesting… LOL!!!!
    I’m not sure I would want a uterus lying in my bed… LOL!!!
    But your cake pops are very cute, as always!
    You really are an inspiration to many and I know all of your fans, me included, having been praying for you and we’re glad to hear that you are doing so well!

  76. I love the kidney pops and its great to here that you and your mum are doing well.

    I have a friend here in Northern Ireland who is a fellow kidney transplant recipient. Her name is Orla Smyth and she recently competed in the World Transplant Games receiving Gold in 6 running events and then last weekend she scooped multiple golds in the British Transplant Games held in her hometown of Belfast.

    It amazes me every day how she has pushed herself so hard as I know, even without all the illness/ dialysis/ hospital visits that she has endured I couldn’t do half of what she has achieved in the last 20 years.

    I’m happily registered as an organ donor (for every single organ or part of my body) and a blood donor too. I urge everyone to sign up if you haven’t already!

  77. Who knew kidneys could be so cute!! Great idea. And I love the guts. My son has a heart defect so maybe we’ll get him a heart for his next big surgery or annual heart cath. :)

  78. Love love love the kidney shaped litte guys! So cute!

  79. I love “I Heart Guts”. They make biology cute and fun! =P

  80. You and your mom are inspirations to us all! Happy to hear you are both doing well.

  81. Glad to hear you’re feeling better! Super cute kidneys! :)

  82. so happy to see that bakerella is back in her kitchen, and with a great sense of humor too. i love these!

  88. My mum had a kidney transplant for nearly 9years and it changed her life completely (for the better).

    I would love to make her some kidney cakes to celebrate what would’ve been the 10th anniversary last month if she was still here but sad to say she’s not (nothing kidney related im glad to say).

    HUGE congrats and get well soon to both you and your mum, i wish you both well x

  89. These are adorable! Thank you for making me smile this morning.

  90. So glad you’re doing well Angie! Those plush toys are adorable…in a weird gross way. Your cake pops are just adorable though!!

  92. I forwarded this to my mother-in-law who had a life-saving liver transplant a few years back. I know she will appreciate this post and laugh! The plush toys are a great find…a cool gift for someone recuperating from an illness or just a quirky way to send a cute message. Love them!

  99. Okay, when I clicked on the link to your page and saw those cake pops, my first thought is, “What the Hell?” I honestly couldn’t believe what I was seeing and was thinking, “Are those what I think they are?” And sure enough… kidney cake pops!

    Yes, they are weird. But oddly cute. And considering what you and your mom went through, very therapeutic and funny!

    Glad to hear you and your mom are doing better!

  134. I adore that you made these. You’re taking a situation that I’m sure neither you or your mom wanted to go through and making lemonade. I simply love that. These cake pops are adorable and shows your inner strength. I’m happy to hear your both doing well. And thank you for sharing where to get those great plush organs. I’m ordering a uterus for a party I’m planning in September. Mine was removed 7 years ago.

  135. Too cute! I”m so glad you and your mom are feeling better!!!!

  136. I’ve been following your blog for over a year and this is the first time I’ve left a comment. About time haha! I’ve been battling my health the past year and it has helped me to see your journey and realize that I’m not alone. Your sense of humor is exactly what I needed tonight! I might have to get myself a plush lung and get back to baking soon:) Thanks for the inspiration! I hope your health continues to be good!

  137. I love these cake pops! Good for you for celebrating your recovery! My anatomy teacher would of loved these cake pops! And we sell like stuffed bacteria and viruses at my college. Same idea but different. I think they are cute :) A good thing to give to someone who has something!

  153. Oh man I searched high and low for some kind of thin, flexible green candy string for a Christmas cake I made last year and couldn’t find anything reasonable!

  154. so glad you are doing well! I <3 the pops & the plush guts are fantastic! (I teach biology & want them all!!)

  155. I am so glad things are good for you – and your mom. I have a friend who is close to needing a kidney transplant.

    I really wish I had known about these plush organs – my husband had his bladder removed last summer. Would have loved to get him one of these!! I think I still might do it.

    Again – so happy things are going well for you!!

  156. OMG….so cute! Glad to hear you are doing well. ^_^

  157. Oh these are wonderful! I’m putting together food for a birthday celebration (of sorts) for a friend’s kidney and these cake pops are perfection!!! And now I have to rush off and order a purple huggable kidney! Thanks so much!

  158. I love it! So glad things are going well for you and your mom! I especially love how it says Yi-Pee, fantastic!

  159. Great to see you are back to baking! That is a great tip about rolling the balls before shaping them. It’s not as much fun to end up with a hodge lodge of sized at the end. Thanks, as always, for sharing!

  160. I never would have guessed that internal organs could be so cute!

  161. i got the Yi-pee! pun hehe. Too cute!
    Glad to hear that you’re both doing so well!

  163. These are so cute! So glad to hear you are doing well!

  164. This made me smile. I love that you have maintained such a great sense of humor : )

  165. Hey Bakerella!

My a lung cancer survivor, but as a result- he only has one lung…Each year on the anniversary of the operation, we celebrate by making a cake a lung (yes- it looks about as gross as it sounds!) – it has been 7 1/2 years! I need to get him a plush lung and maybe do lung cakepops. (How do you think those would look?) Glad t hear your transplant was successful! :) ~Carol

  179. you did not even acknowledge the yi”pee” part of the pop. too funny! i got it! hope you continue to heal. prayers and hugs. lori l

  180. these turned out great…considering I am a kidney donor to my husband. I will have to try these for our bake sale to raise money for the next kidney walk in November in Long Beach! Excellent job!!! And congrats to you and your mom on a successful transplant!
