Star Wars Cake Pops: R2-D2

  R2-D2 Cake Pop

I made these Star Wars R2-D2 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!

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 oval shapes that are about the size and shape of a R2-D2’s body.  Place in freezer to harden before inserting the sucker stick or the stick will not stay in the cake pop.

The dip cake pop into the candy melts.  Gently spoon the candy melts 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.

Using the black powdered food coloring, tint some of the candy melts gray and dip the top of the body into the gray candy melts.  Hold it upside down for about 1 minute until the gray has hardened somewhat.

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.
