Cake-‘stache Pops

I recently volunteered to make 62 cakepops for all the teachers at my son’s school for Teacher Appreciation Week.  Making 62 cakepops wasn’t a problem for me, the problem was that I didn’t remember that I had to make cakepops for Monday until the Sunday before at 5pm.  All week I kept telling myself I had to make cakepops, but then I went to Kansas City for a night on a business trip and when I got home I was so caught up in housework that I forgot about the cakepops.

I, of course, being the person who bites off more than they can chew, was set on making the cakepops and so I did!  I needed to make cakepops that not only looked and tasted good, I had to make them quickly.  Then I had a “genius” moment (which is VERY rare),  I came up with the idea of using the mustache molds I used for my milk mustaches.  Not only would the cakepops be fun and cute, they would be easy and fast to make since I didn’t have to take the time to roll the mixture into balls and put them in the fridge to set.

How to make cake-‘stache pops:

What I did was take my mustache mold and filled it a quarter to half of the way with my melted chocolate candy melts.  Make sure to slightly tap the mold on the counter to get all the air bubbles out of the chocolate and to spread the chocolate evenly in the mold. 

Next, I took my cakepop mix (crumbled cake and frosting) and shaped it to fit in the mold and gently pressing down on it to make the chocolate go up the sides of the mold.  Make sure that the cake mixture does not over fill the mold or the back of the mustache will look bumpy.

I placed a lollipop stick in the mold and filled the rest of the mold with my melted candy.  Don’t forget to slightly tap the mold on the counter, again. 

Once all the molds are filled place them in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set.

The cakepops turned out delicious and fun and from what I hear the teachers loved them.

    Hi, my husband is turning 30 next weekend and I am throwing him a suprise party. I thought these would make fun favors and they’ll be tastier than just plain chocolate. So my questions are…. Can I use your red velvet cake pop mix recipe for these? And could I use the red velvet with white chocolate?

    Also, when I press down the cake mix into the mold, do I need to press down enough so that chocolate covers the back, or do I add more chocolate on top once the cake is in there? Thanks!

      You can definitely use Red Velvet, however I do find that when I use white chocolate you can see some of the red from the cake because it’s dark.

      Let me know f you have anymore questions.

    Oops, I read farther along and saw the part about adding more chocolate. Sorry. So that question is answered.
