I made these Boba Fett Cake Pops for my son who is a huge Star Wars fan.
What’s a Cake Pop? You know how a Charms Blow Pop is a lollipop on the outside and bubble gum on the inside and a Tootsie Pops is a lollipop on the outside and a Tootsie Roll on the inside. Cake Pops are similar, they’re candy coating on the outside and cake and frosting on the inside. Yummy!
Boba Fett Cake Pops Recipe:
9 by 13 inch cake pan
1 large mixing bowl
microwave safe dish for melting candy melts
List of Ingredients to Purchase
Grocery store items
1 cake mix
1 16 oz can cake frosting
Specialty store items
green candy melts
1 batch of
To mix up the mixture for the cake pops, add 3/4 of the 16 oz container cake frosting to the cake crumbs and mix thoroughly using a fork.
Lay out the wax paper onto a sheet pan. Roll the cake pops mixture into ball shapes that are about the size and shape of Bobba Fett’s head. Place in freezer to harden before inserting the sucker stick or the stick will not stay in the cake pop.
Once the cake pops have hardened for about 1 hour in the freezer, place the sucker stick into the cake pop and return to the freezer for 30 minutes.
Melt the candy melts.
Melt the green candy melts in the microwave for 20 seconds, stir, then melt, and stir again until the candy melts are almost melted. Stir to finish melting. Do not overheat in the microwave.
The dip cake pop into the green candy melts. Gently spoon the green chocolate over the cake pop. Let excess candy drip from the cake pop back into the bowl.
Place the cake pop into the styrofoam and let dry.
Make front of helmet for Boba Fett.

Color a small amount of fondant red. Roll out the fondant using a small rolling pin.
Cut the red into about the size that you will need fit onto the cake pop as the front of the helmet. Size it onto the cake pop so that it will be the right size later.
Cut the black so that it is a little smaller than the red and fits inside the red.
Turn the front of the helmet over so that the red is on top. Using a paring knife, carefully cut a ‘T’ shape out of the red without cutting the black to form the front of the helmet.
Place the front of the helmet onto the cake pop. It should stick because the fondant will still be wet. Put a small amount of water on the back side of the fondant if you need to to get it to stick.
Color a small amount of fondant green to match the green candy melts.
Shape the green to make the side of Boba Fett’s helmet and place on the helmet.
