Character cake pops are so fun to create and a perfect treat at a themed party! Perhaps you’ve looked through our cake pop collection before. Have you seen Spider-man? Our Lego Heads? Or my personal favorite… the owls!? Well this time around, I had the pleasure of doing Winnie the Pooh and his Hunny Pots!
I started with Pooh and quite honestly, forgot to take pictures of the hunny pot process (sorry!!!), so here it goes. First, I shaped his head by making a ball, then squeezing and forming it from there. I also used a cake pop stick and held it across the top of his nose to make a more prominent brow. I then put yellow chip sprinkles in place for ears and tested the placement of the nose with a black chip sprinkle. In the end, I decided that these sprinkles were too small for his ears and I switched over to Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Chips. I picked butterscotch on purpose so that when they were eventually dipped in yellow chocolate, their color did not show through.
Before dipping these pops, remove the black nose sprinkle. Then add it back on after you’ve dipped the pop and it’s starting to dry.
Before you know it, you’ll have a bunch of Winnie the Pooh heads just waiting to have their faces drawn on with an AmeriColor black edible marker!
As for the hunny pots, the simple rundown is that I dipped round cake pops in purple chocolate, then tipped them over onto a purple chocolate waffer to dry. This created for a flat top. Then I took yellow chocolate and covered the top of the hunny pot, while pulling some over the edges to look like dripping hunny. To finish it off, I again used my edible black marker to write the word “Hunny” on the pot… with a backwards “N” of course! In true Winnie the Pooh style!
