Bomb Cake Pops

Cake pops are always a surefire crowd-pleaser, which is why we love making them for parties. Well, the truth is, we may not always love the actual MAKING part because they can definitely be a labor of love (depending on the intricacy of your design), but seeing how adorable they look when they are complete and hearing everyone rave about them makes it all worth it. Here's a quick look at just a few of our favorite past creations:



Today, I'm sharing my Bomb Cake Pops ("bomb" as in an actual explosive, as opposed to "da bomb" - though honestly, these qualify as that, too!). I made them to celebrate the opening of a play at my theater (because the cake pop design recreated the show's logo), but they would also be adorable at a superhero party, or as a special gift for someone you think is "da bomb" (ok, I'll stop with the 90s slang!). 

To get started, follow our basic cake pop instructions with the cake mix/frosting of your choice (for these, I used chocolate for both), and read on for the specific bomb design instructions:

 

Supplies
* Wilton jumbo stars sprinkles (you'll be using only the red ones)
Twizzlers Twist Pull'n'Peel fruit punch candy (you'll be using only the orange ones)


Instructions


2) While you're waiting for your cake balls to cool, peel apart your Twizzlers and separate the orange strands. Cut them into 1.5 inch pieces.

2) Dip the cake balls in the black candy melts, and immediately sprinkle with your sugar sparkles.

3) While the cake pop is still wet, stick a Twizzler piece into the very top of the cake ball. Stick the pop into your styrofoam block to dry.

4) Once all of the cake pops are dry, take a toothpick and dip into the chocolate. Spread a dot of the chocolate on the back of a jumbo star, and stick it to the end of the Twizzler "fuse." 

    What kind of cake pop design would you like to see us tackle next?

  12. I have to give you so much credit for this because in addition to cake pops (and this one specifically) being adorable - they are SO FREAKING HARD TO MAKE and you make them sound simple! I love these! I told you on Insta how I am taunting T by trying to make Da Bomb happen. I am not the only one though bc there are 144k #dabomb insta uses.

  16. How fun. Looks like you've made a lot of cake pops in your time! Love all the varieties! Maybe one day i'll find it in me to try these. We tried one for the first time a month or so ago and my kids want more! Maybe one day I'll find it in me to make some. They are adorable! When I do, I'll know where to go for help! :) #TuesdaysTable
