Skull Cakepops!

I don’t know about you but I can’t think of anything better for a party than CAKE POPS! So if you’re thinking of starting that Halloween party planning then these skull cake pops are a MUST!




Let’s get started!


1 – Bake a CK chocolate (77-522) or white (77-502) cake mix. Let cool.

2 – In a large mixing bowl, finely crumble cake with your hands.


3 – Mix in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of CK chocolate (77-703) or  white (77-803) buttercream icing and chill 15 minutes.


4 – Cut “Press & Mold” in half on center line. Lightly spray all cavities of mold with an all-purpose release spray, wipe excess.


5 – Roll cake mixture into balls large enough to fill both sides of cavities. Fill cavities in the first half of mold. Place second half on top, lining up dimples. Press each cavity firmly.  Take top half off and remove excess cake mixture.

6 – Place white candy coating (70-2200) in a deep microwave safe dish or measuring cup. Melt candy coating in the microwave in 20-second increments, stirring each time until melted. Dip paper sucker sticks (88-0029) into the coating and insert half way into the cake pop. Chill in freezer for 10-15 minutes to let coating harden. Do not freeze.

7 – Remelt candy coating. If too thick, use paramount crystals (76-3204) to thin. (1 tablespoon crystals to 1 cup of candy coating; this will help show details of mold). Carefully dip the cake pop into melted candy coating.  Tap off excess coating. Place in the cake pop stand (37-92195) to let coating set up and to display.

    It is so simple. Make brownie bars. You can get molds from any craft stores that are separated mini skeletons. I make them out of green wafer melts. Then just stick them in the brownies like they are trying to get out, then a little bit of ground chocolate cookie sprinkled on top for dirt. And don’t forget the molds for the gravestone. My granddaughters love them for Halloween treats at school, but, like I said, our family is a little weird and use them for a lot of different occasions.
    I get my molds and wafers from or . Have fun. 🙂
