It is no secret how much I love my Babycakes Cake Pop Maker, but I fell even more in love today while making Christmas Cake Pops for a Christmas party we are attending tonight. I made some "normal" ones, iced with sprinkles, but I wanted to make some with a bit more... personality.
Snowmen Cake Pops
- Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix
- 3 eggs
- Just less than 1 cup water
- ⅓ cup oil
- White chocolate candy melts
- Orange Tic Tac candies
- Large Oreos - icing removed
- Small Oreos - whole
- Foodwriter Edible Markers
- Babycakes Cake Pop Maker
I first made my cake pops with Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix. I use a little less water than the recipe on the box calls for, as I think it is easier to spoon into the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker when it is a bit thicker. Put all of the little cake pops on a cookie sheet and run into the freezer for at least an hour. Take the cake pops out and put just a dab of chocolate on the sticks and stick them into the pops. Then run them into the freezer again for another hour. They should come out looking like this:
Gently dip each cake pop into melted white chocolate, and place Large Oreo cookie and Tic Tac into place. Stick cake pop into Styrofoam stand and run into the freezer again to let set. Using a tooth pick, put a dollop of chocolate in the center of the Oreo and add Small Oreo cookie to make a "top hat." (mine is blue - I had already colored it for "Smurf pops" before I remembered I would need it!)
Using the Foodwriter pens draw on eyes and a mouth. (*Note: I am not very impressed with these pens at all, and when I went to Facebook to ask if I was doing something wrong, most everyone said they did not work as well as they wanted them to either. Its the first time I have ever been disappointed in anything from Wilton. However, they work for now until we find something better.)
I had a blast making the Snowmen Cake Pops - and they are MUCH easier than the Reindeer Cake Pops I made to go along with them! They are super cute together though!
These are so cute!

Those are so cute!!!
I love them! My problem with cake pops is....I don't have room in my freezer (or fridge for that matter) to put them to set up!
I have a fridge/freezer in the garage for my cake pops LOL Although I havent been to the store in so long, they fit in my kitchen freezer yesterday LOL
OMG! Those are cute. I am excited to make mine!

How many do you get from one Cake Mix?
Hey Cassie! I use the Pillsbury Funfetti box and I got about 65 cake pops from one box. Its a LOT 🙂
The pens are not very good I agree, i did hello kitty cake pops (i regretted after the 10th one) lol for my sisters baby shower I used the pens but the black was not as dark as i thought so i bought extra black food coloring and would dip the pen tip into the black food coloring and although was not as dark it was darker than the pen it self. By the way i love cake pops as well lol! Nice blog!
