Characters in Cake


Cake balls…


Candy melts…


and candy color …

These are key participants in the cake pops I’m about to show you.

Any guesses?


I made them weeks ago for some new friends to put on their website and I’ve been dying to share them with you since, because so many of you have asked how to decorate these little guys. Now that I have the go ahead, I’m so excited.


Ok. Here goes.

Hope you like em.


Mickey Mouse.


and Minnie, too. Mini Minnies.


Silhouette Mickey & Minnie Cake Pops … made by attaching cut candy melts for their iconic ears. Minnie is made by adding a simple bow.


It’s amazing what a couple of candies can do.

But, it’s even crazier what candies and some sprinkles can do.


Hey Mickey you’re so fine, you’re so fine, you … Wait. Wrong Mickey.

Now, I’m not gonna kid you. Making them with faces was more challenging. And without a mold for the shapes, these characters are going to each have a little character of their own.

That’s ok. Character = cute. Handmade = love.


And bows = crazytown cute.



Have fun and make someone smile.


The full instructions are available through the links below thanks to Disney. And I’m pretty sure you’ll find a lot of other fun stuff on their site, too.

And just out of curiosity. Do you have a character you’d like to see in cake pop form? Hello Kitty, Sesame Street and Frosty the Snowman aside.

  1. You are just amazing!! I love visiting your site to see what the newest creation is!!

  2. I would love to see Calvin and Hobbes cake pops! I gave the cupcake pops a try for my daughters 2nd birthday last week. They turned out pretty cute, but they were a bit on the moist side. I think I added too much frosting. I also think I need to find a smaller cookie cutter for the cupcake bottoms. They were just too big. I love your site and all your wonderful ideas. :)

  3. Adorable!!! You are too creative… such an inspiration!

  4. You have done it again! So creative and cute!! I love them :)

  5. Oh my gosh! These are amazing!

  8. Seriously, these are beyond amazing. We are going to DisneyWorld in 2 weeks and boy do these make me sooo excited to go! Wish I had time to make these and have them as a surprise in our hotel room. My daughters would go crazy for them!

    As for other characters–I’d LOVE to see the Charlie Brown characters—Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Charlie Brown, and of course Woodstock. Maybe in their Great Pumpkin outfits? :)

  9. So cute! I even liked them without the faces.

  10. I agree with the Calvin & Hobbes comment.

    Curious George is always a fan favorite around here!

  15. I Loved them , very cute!!! I ‘d love to see Charlie Brown and friends, they r my favorite!!!

  16. Wishful thinking… but I’ve always loved Jimminy Cricket! “When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires will come to youuuu….” I’m willing to bet he’d be crazy hard to create though! Your Minnie and Mickey look incredible!

  17. These are stunning! Gotta try to do them. I should also work on doing cake pops or cake balls for an Imagination Movers theme. Maybe little gears…

  25. Hi, just wanted to say I just love the cake pops!!!!
    Ok… do you dip the balls into the chocolate and get it so smooth??
    I’ve made the cake balls twice and some turn out great and others not so great.
    Any hints I would just love.

  26. These are so cute! I think either Spongebob or Thomas the Tank Engine would be good characters to try out.

  27. Very creative! Think you could do Shrek?

  28. Amazing! Simply Amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  29. WOW! These are adorable:-) My little girl loves Minnie, so this would be the cutest thing for her next birthday party.

    I’m SOOOO excited to have you as a dessert photo judge on I Heart Faces this week. YAY! Thanks so much for taking time out for us. You are such an inspiration to me. I’m totally giddy:-)

    I Heart Faces

  30. I don’t know any parent who actually has time to do this stuff. They’re cute and all, but totally impractical for anyone who has a real job.

  31. Sooooo ca-yute! I have a feeling that the Yo Gabba Gabba characters would be a big hit at my daughter’s next birthday party. I can’t even begin to imagine how I would make those. So I guess I’ll just let you pull some of that magic out of your hat and then I can copy yours! Don’t worry, you’ve got time. Her birthday isn’t until January. :-D

  32. Muno—Yo Gabba Gabba. Red and bumpy with 1 eye.

  33. O.K. I have to say it for the sake of my kids…. can you do Sponge Bob??

    If I ever made them though I’d never let them eat em’!

  34. Oh how completely adorable! Your cake pops are beyond amazing and doable for anyone who has the inclination to make them!! You can always find time for such sweet treats as yours!!
    Thank you for another fantastic post!

  35. ADORABLE! I would love to make these but have no idea for who or what I would make them for.

  36. Ummmmmm….I just died. Just when I think you can’t out-adorable yourself, you do. These are absolutely span-dan-derous

  37. I’m in love <3

    As for other characters.. I think Chowder would make a cool cake pop.

  38. clever, clever, clever! i’m going to have to think about what character i would love to see as a cake pop…i’ll be back with an answer! :)

  39. so cute. love minnie. remmeber power-puff girls? those would be so cute

  40. AMA-ZING!!! Love it!! I am curious about ladybugs. I know it’s not a character so much, but the theme for my daughter’s first birthday party is ladybugs and I would love to make some pops as favors. Also, can’t wait till the book comes out. If you are on a book tour, I hope hope hope you come to Nashville!!!!

  41. OMG, I love it!!! I will be making these for my nephew b. Day door sure…thanks ur Amazing

  42. woow. these are cuuuute. i’ll try them as soon as possible. yum yum yum.

    i’d love to see curious george cake pops.

  43. i would love to see you make other sanrio characters such as kerropi, chococat, or batzmaru! so cute!

  44. WOW! These are fabulous!!! I would love to see cake pop bubbles, I guess that’s not a character, but wouldn’t blue cake pop bubbles sticking in a little bathtub with a cake pop rubber ducky be soooo stinkin’ cute!?!?!? Love you here on the west coast Bakerella!!!!

  45. I forgot to say I would like handy manny or toy story cakes balls, that would be awesome :D

  46. Love these!

    And which character would I like to see? Totoro! From the Disney movie My Neighbor, Totoro. They might not be that small though since he’s a bit of a fattie, haha.

  47. OMG…..these are SOOO cute!!! I can see doing the ones w/o the faces, they remind me of the foam figures you put on your car antennae!

    I’ve made your graduation caps back in June and STILL get comments abt them! A special feat considering I live in Orlando and dealing with chocolate in the June heat was a challenge.

    Thanks for all your great ideas. They are totally doable and when you find something you want to do, there is ALWAYS time for it.

  48. How about Toy Story charactors? Toy Story 3 comes out June 18th!

  49. What an incredible honor to have Dinsey use your amazing talent. These are so cute!

  50. I would like to see some Muppets characters and I think Yoda and Darth Vader would rock! I’m so looking forward to your book release!

    I’m currently trying this for the first time, making baseballs for my son’s teammates to celebrate his birthday this week. Thanks for the inspiration!

  51. Those are SO adorable!

  52. I love these so much! You are so talented! How about some of the Disney princesses? Or the Mario characters in cakeball form?

  53. I’ve got one!! Winnie the Pooh and Piglet! Omigosh…my two little girls would love them!!

  54. I’ll echo Pamela–Pooh and Piglet! Or Care Bears? How about Snoopy?

  55. I second the little einsteins cake pops!

  56. Yay!!! Namesake pops!!! :) Those look absolutely fabulous!
    I think Finding Nemo pops would be cute..

  57. So darn cute! I would love, love, love to see Yo Gabba Gabba! Actually, my son would love to see Yo Gabba Gabba!

  58. Just thought I’d throw my two cents in, about how I melt chocolate bark using my electric fondue pot. I figure it’d work just as great with candy melts. I can’t wait to make/try some homemade cake balls.

  59. What about Dora/Diego or the Disney Princesses? My daughter would love it!

  60. Too cute!! I LOVE those Minnie Mouse pops!

  61. LOVE THEM!!! I had Minnie/Mickie cookies I made for a friend this weekend and they would have flipped for these too! Thanks for all your amazing ideas!!!

  62. these are FLAWLESS!! I’m in awe, Bakerella. You are such an inspiration!

  63. These are absolutely insane!! I thought the Sesame Street Cake Pops were my favorite, but your MIckey and Minnie mouse pops are awesome!


  65. AWWW I love these! I would make cake pops more often as soon as I perfect the dipping technique lol

    I would love to see Garfield and friends one day. They seem simple enough?

  66. WOW! These are incredible…now I need to come up with a reason to try and make them!

  67. I loveeeeeeee love love, did I say love it? OMG!

  68. Woman, you rock as usual! Your photography also! I have always been in love with the Pillsbury Dough Boy! He laughed when poked and when I was very little and did not speak English, it was comforting that I could understand that as well as the next kid whom did speak English!!

    yeah, the Pillsbury Dough Boy!! Flutter

  69. Me again! I was so excited to see #31 and 32 ask for Yo Gabba Gabba. We don’t get that show in the Middle East but DJ Lance Rock is my dearest friend from high school and beyond! That would be so cool to do him! He just did and Egg Roll at the White House! He has been photoshopped to have Obama’s head in his head gear and glasses! My Lance!!!!

  70. Eeee! They’re so cute! =D As for characters, how about the Power Rangers??? That would be a challenge but imagine the pops!

  71. These are so CUTE!!!!!! : )

  72. Oh my gosh, these are so cute!!! If I show these to my 2 1/2 year old, she will force me to make them! We went to Disneyland a couple of weeks ago, and she was star struck. She almost couldn’t wait her turn to meed Mickey, and when it was her turn, she just hugged him and wouldn’t let go. I will definitely be making these for her :)
    How about some Veggie Tales cake pops? Those would be fun :)

  73. I’m with a couple of these other ladies – gonna have to go with Yo Gabba Gabba. My 2 1/2 year old would FLIP OUT.

  74. The Pillsberry Dough Boy and the Geico Gecko cake pops would be outrageous cute overload!

  75. Oh my goodness! You are killing me w/ the cuteness! I especially adore the Minnie Mouse Silhouettes!

  76. Oh, my nephew is CRAZY about Thomas the Train! That might be a little difficult to do though.

  77. YAY!!! Oh I’m so glad you posted these! I’ve been waiting for this post and here it is. :) Thank you!! Now, I just have to try and recreate these….. Here goes nothing! :)

  78. These are so adorable, can’t believe all the amazing ideas. My kids would love “Puffle” pops from the Club Penguin online site/game. They are round, just have to figure out how to do the fuzzy fur! Made my first attempt at cake pops this past week, they turned out great but some of the coating cracked? Also made “Marshmallow” pops which looked a little like Frankenstein’s head – now I have a Halloween idea! You are so talented and creative LOVE your site!

  79. Holy cow Bakerella! How DO you do it! Those are just awesome!

  80. WOW! You never cease to amaze us!! These are completely and utterly adorable!!!!

  81. I love these! I’ve been trying to decide between pirate cake pops and smiley face cake pops for my son’s birthday next month. I think it’s going to have to be his beloved Mickey! Thanks for the great idea!!!


  83. Love the Mickey and Minnie! I would love to see Jack Skullington. I think it would be pretty easy for you (probably not for me). My tween boys would love them!

  84. so creative as usual! sooooooooooooo cute

  85. My little nephews and cousins LOVE Thomas the Tank Engine. My little nephews birthday is coming up and I was going to make Thomas cupcakes… pops would be so fun to have too!

  86. I wish you had made these this time last year!! I had a disney 21st.
    You are crazy talented!!!! Next you should try the simpsons or something.

  87. Ooh I love these! Do you have a side profile picture? Did you make the nose come out some? Does that make sense LOL.

  88. omg wow these are amazing, i would love to try making these, i love anything disney :).
    and a character id like to see…Spongebob hehe :) i love that spongey guy i would love to have a go of making cake pops of him :).

  89. Oh dear how cute. The ribbons and Minnie’s bows nail it. I just wonder if it is necessary to cut the candy for ears – couldn’t you just shove them in the pop using some force? ;-)

    As a Finn, I’m going to suggest you make some Moomin pops –

  90. You are amazing bakerella!

    Star wars would be fun as pops.
    My baby is a cookie monster fan and thoose you have already done.

  91. Oh, these are sooo cute!!!

    Me, I’d love to see your version of the Peanuts :-)
    My 8-year daughter, she loves Spongebob Squarepants and his friends, those would make a nice bunch of cakes too – in your hands, that is.
    You are a genius, thanks for the fun and the inspiration :)

  92. Oh…my…goodness!!! No words to describe how absolutely freaking adorable your newest creations are!

    I’d LOVE to see Vin Diesel cake pops. So hot, I could just eat him up and if he were a cake pop I really could! :-) For my daughter, Tinkerbell and for my son robots!

  93. Those cake pops were great. As soon as I saw the question one thought popped into my head = the Peanuts gang. And I see that Simone on comment 94 said the same. I would love to see your slant on a Woodstock and Snoopy especially.

    Can’t wait for your book!

    Take care

  94. Oh my goodness!!!! These are adorable – you are so talented!

  95. Your cake pops get more and more impressive each time! I would love to see Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends, especially Piglet and Eeyore, in cake pops. I think they would make the cutest favors for a baby shower!

  96. You are insanely patient!

    Winnie the Pooh would make a super cute cake pop. My girl is obsessed with Monsters Inc. at the moment – a Mike Wazowski pop would be funny!

  97. It would be neat to see all the characters from harry potter. It could be a real hit in the new theme castle at Universal. Harry potter cake pops!!!!
