It's been a while CC...

Ok, I have an order for Super Why Cake pops...there are four characters that need to be made, and I haven't the foggiest clue how to do them. I make cake pops all the time, but never done faces and nothing like the super why characters... here's a link to something like what they need to look like...

Fondant and/or modelling chocolate plus acrylic paints (food paints). You will need a lot of practice if you want them to look perfect. You would definitely need to charge a top price for them! Good luck!

I've made character cakepops before and they honestly do take forever! I used both fondant decoration and also (i think on the Mr Potato Head ones), some mini chocolates, maybe mini m&m's?. I don't think there's any real shortcut, just lots of patience and a steady hand! Good luck with your order!

I've made a number of character pops...I model the body parts out of MMF and sometimes pipe candy for expressions and details. I'm a hobbyist, so I don't sell...but I know that I would not be able to turn a profit on character pops. They are a labor of love...emphasis on the labor!

FYI - I would love to just post the pictures, but whenever I try the tool, I only get half a screen...? Please see links for examples of character pops.

Wow, I do hope you are charging a fortune for those things, they look so detailed! The human heads look football shaped. The eyes can be fondant or modeling chocolate, dried and painted with edible markers. I would look at Bakerella's website for ideas since she's done so many characters and finds multiple uses for diff shape candies.

Thanks, they're for next weekend. I like taking on a challenge...this is a big challenge. I'll check out Bakerella's site and see what she has on little people...
