Hi my name is Joey. I am excited to be guest posting over here at, Skip to my Lou! I started my blog Every Day Should Pop!
in early February of this year, so I’ve been at it for almost nine months.
I originally got my inspiration for doing cake pops from Bakerella
. But I got the idea for the blog simply because my family loves to celebrate holidays. I wanted to expand on the cake pop idea by incorporating things from each day, and so far we’re having a blast! I hope you enjoy this tutorial and stop by and see me sometime! I have lot’s more to share!
Welcome to my favorite holiday of the year,
In this section I will walk you through the step-by-step process of how to make
Candy Corn Cake Pops.
I will be using white cake, though, as always, you can substitute with any other cake flavor.
And it’s always a good idea to have toothpicks handy.
Step 1: Using your cake pop recipe of choice, shape the cake ball into a cone with the pointed end as the top and flatten the base.
Step 2: Dip the lollipop stick in your melted yellow candy melts about 1/2 inch.
Step 3: Place that end into the flat base of the pop.
Go about half way.
Step 4: Dip the cake pop into the yellow candy melts.
Step 5: After the pop is completely covered, gently tap the stick on the edge of the bowl to drip off the excess.
Step 6: Let harden for about 5 minutes. Then, dip the top 2/3 of the pop into the orange candy melts.
Step 7: After the top portion is completely covered, gently tap the stick on the edge of the bowl to drip off the excess.
Step 8: Let harden for about 5 minutes. Then, dip the top 1/3 into the vanilla candy melts.
Step 9: After the top portion is completely covered, gently tap the stick on the edge of the bowl to drip off the excess.
Finally, let harden completely, then the sky is the limit!
To attach the black licorice pinwheel arms, cut the licorice to your desired length. Poke a hole in each side of the pop with a toothpick deep enough so the licorice will stay on its own. Insert and form the arms any way you would like.
Grab your black food writing marker and get to work.
Create your own silly, spooky or scary faces!
There is no doubt these pops will be the life of the party!
