Candy Corn Cake Pops
Candy corn is probably my favorite candy ever – I love how sweet yet slightly spicy it tastes, so why not try and create them in cake pops.
With these candy corn ones you will need to mold the cake mix into the corn shape before adding the lollipop stick and putting in the fridge. Once you have the shape you are happy with then refrigerate for 1-2 hours before icing.
Ghost Cake Pops
Once you make cake pops, see steps below, roll fondant and cut out a circle with a cookie cutter, put if over the cake pop and then mold so it looks like a ghost, either add black fondant as eyes and mouth or use a edible pen

Bat Cake Pops
These Bat Cake Pops are a little more difficult to make as you will need to make the wings out of chocolate first then delicately add them to the cake pop. I suggest if this is your first time making cake pops then these would probably not be the best to start with.
Why should I use cake pops instead of cupcakes or other cakes?
Cake Pops are really simple to make, are bite sized pieces which are great for kids parties and you can mold them into the shapes you need to match your themed party. Really your imagination can run wild. Cupcakes are nice to have but with Cake Pops you can really show off your artistic skills and make all different looking cake pops
Steps To Making Cake Pops
If you want to learn how to make cake pops then this is an excellent place to start. You’ll find step-by-step instructions on making them as well as tips and tricks, In addition, you can check out the below video tutorial the lady demonstrates exactly what you need to know to create delicious Halloween cake pops.
So, first we’re going to start with our cake balls. It’s possible to use a homemade cake recipe, but a boxed cake mix is just as good and that is what I prefer.
- crumble into a bowl after the cake is baked and cooled
- I use a little bit of buttercream frosting here just because it’s easier for me to work with. They should be able to form soft balls that hold together.
- Use a cookie scoop to make even-sized pieces of the dough, then gently roll it between your hands to make balls.
- Melt a small amount of candy melts in a microwave bowl ( you only need a little )
- Then dip the tips of the lollipop sticks/cake pop sticks in the melted candy melts, then push the tip into the cake balls, make sure it is inserted about 50% of the way in to the balls. That way you will know they will not fall off.
- Then refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
There you have your cake pops! Now you are ready to decorate them with whatever colors and way you like. Experiment with all different icings, colors and embellishments, make them fun, spooky, scary and delicious. You can but cake pop kits and stands if that makes things easier for you and I am sure once you make cake pops once you will make them over and over again as they are so easy and fun and kids love them,.
