{Happy Spring} Cute Bird Cake Pops Tutorial

{Happy Spring} Cute Bird Cake Pops Tutorial

Hi there ladies and gents,
I don’t know about you and the weather where you are at but here in Germany it is raining non stop. It is cold too. We basically had winter, then fall again. No spring in sight, it is almost June and I am wearing a hoodie and a jacket and still, I am freezing.
Hopefully summer will show up in July!

Let’s chear eachother up with these cuties right here, birdie cake pops:

Those are classics as well, just like the Smiley Cake Pops I posted about last week.
Today I will show you how to make them.

They are very easy to make, good news!

  • Prep Time 20 minutes
  • Baking Time 10 minutes in freezer / 30min in refrigerator
  • Difficulty Easy

For the Cake Pops:

  • Prepare yourself before you actually start.
    Get everything out on the counter you need, so you do not stress yourself in the middle of the decorating process.
  • 1. Now, make the NO BAKE Cake Pops: Grind your Oreo cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor
  • 2. Put the crumbmix into a boal and hand mix with cream cheese, add it bit by bit. I use disposable gloves, because it gets messy. Especially when you have longer nails, when you have kids, I am sure they would love to help you with this step.
  • 3. Keep in mind that the dough should have the consistency of play-dough.
  • 4. Roll the dough into 1″ balls or weigh them, which I recommend (20g), then refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes to firm up, or put them in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • 5. Now melt your candy wafers in your microwave in 30 seconds intervals.
  • 6. Dip a little bit of the lollipop stick in the melted candy, then stick the lollipop stick in the Cake Pop (half way and put the pops back in the refrigerator to firm up so the chocolate can set inside the cake pops. (Especially in summer!)
  • 7. Now attach the two chocolate chips to the cake pop’s sides (one on each side) using candy melts as glue.
    In case you do not have chocolate chips: I used the cake pop mix and added it to the sides as you can see. Wait until dry.
    Now take your cake pop and dip it in the melted candy. Gently shake off any excess chocolate. Now you can see the birds shape.
  • 8. While still wet, attach the nose and feet (sprinkles of your choice) using tweezers.
  • 9. Last but not least: Paint the eyes with an edible food pen. If you don’t have one: You can use dark chocolate (melted) to paint the eyes, carefully with a toothpick or thin paintbrush.
  • For special details:
    Use little heart sprinkles as bow etc.
    And you’re done!

This cutie right here fits perfectly to all kinds of spring cake pops:

  2. Really nice!!!!!!!!!!
    Good tutorial and beautiful cake pops.
    ^_^

  3. Wow, deine Cake Pops sehen immer so perfekt aus! Bei mir sehen die nie so schön gleichmäßig aus…
    Verwendest du immer Candy Melts? Meinst du man könnte auch Kuvertüre färben?
    Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Feiertag!

    LG Kathy

    • Hi Kathy,
      du kannst natürlich gern normale Kuvertüre aus dem Supermarkt verwenden, ich mag den Geschmack leider nicht so, daher benutze ich fast nur Candy Melts.
      Wenn deine Cake Pops ungleichmäßig aussehen, liegt es bestimmt daran, dass die Melts zu dickflüssig sind. Dazu einfach ein wenig Pflanzenöl hinzugeben, nach und nach, umrühren, bis du eine bessere Konsistenz erreicht hast. Lies doch mal meine Cake Pops Hilfe.
      Alles Liebe und viel Glück beim Ausprobieren,
      niner

  4. Hi Nina,
    Where can you get Americolor pens in Germany? I havent been able to find them anywhere and ive been searching for a year…the ones from RD i hate, they dont work on candy melts at all…thanks!

    • Hi Zsoka, I know your disappointment way too well.
      I usually order them on ebay.co.uk – no extra taxes and it arrives quite quickly. Check it out =)
      Enjoy your Sunday, niner

      • Thanks Nina, i didnt want to order from the states cos the shipping cost is ridiculous…i will check the uk then, thanks for the tip! Have a good sunday too!
