Cake Pop Bees!!!!

As I promised, I have the Bee Pop Pictures.  My cousin Christine (thanks sooo much!) sent me some pictures that she took of them!  These were really fun to make! I'll tell you how to make plain cake pops in this post too because its my first cake pop post.

Ingredients: (just for plain cake pops)
  • A cake
  • A large mixing bowl
  • A container of ready-made icing
  • Large Metal Spoon
  • 2 baking sheets
  • 48 ounces of candy coating
  • Deep Microwave Safe Bowl
  • 48 Lollipop Sticks
  • A Styrofoam Block
How To make It!
Bake the cake and let it cool completely.  To crumble your cake, first cut into quarters, then take 1 of the quarters, break it in half and rub the 2 sides together. Repeat with the remaining quarters. After you crumble your cake add 3/4 of the container of icing, if you add all of it the cake balls will be too moist. mix the cake and icing together and roll into 1 1/2 inch balls. put on the baking sheets and put in the fridge to chill for several hours in the fridge or 15 min. in the freezer.
       Follow the direction on the bag to melt the candy coating. *Hint making the candy coating hotter doesnt make it thinner if it is to thick add shortening to it.*
       To dip: take a few cake balls (about 6) out of the fridge (or freezer) to work with.  If you had your cake balls in the freezer transfer them to the fridge now.  One at a time stick about 1/2 an inch of your lollipop stick in the coating, and stick it onto the cake ball, now submerge the cake pop completely in the coating. Now stick your pop in your Styrofoam block. Once you dip all of the pops let them dry completely. Now you can decorate them anyway you want!
Makes 48 cake pops (if you don't want that many each quarter of cake yields about 12 pops just adjust the icing accordingly)
To decorate as bees:
You'll Need-
  • 48 ounces yellow candy coating
  • a bag of white candy coating
  • a black icing writer
  • edible markers
You can prepare the wings ahead of time, cut away part of the circle of candy coating to make it similar to the curve of the cake pops. Shape the cake balls into ovals. Dip the cake balls in the yellow candy coating. When they are dry use your black icing writer to make stripes on the bees.  After that use some leftover yellow candy coating as glue to attach the wings.  when they are done make cute little faces on your bees with your candy markers. the recipe said to use black but my black marker wasn't working so I used blue or green eyes and a red mouth.  If you have any questions put them in a comment and I'll answer them as best I can.
I got these recipes from and there are many more great ones on her site! So go make some Yummy Stuff!!
And here are the pictures! (again thanks Christine!)

A buzzy bye from these bees!!
