How to Make Mickey Mouse Cake Pops?

Step One: Prepare the Cake Pop Mixture

In a large mixing bowl, add the cake and frosting, and mix well until the cake becomes like firm batter. Form batter into 1 1/2” balls. Set aside.

Step Two: Prepare Melted Chocolate

Melt the white almond bark in a bowl using a microwave. Heat 30 seconds at a time until fully melted. Add a splash of oil if needed. Add a few drops of red coloring until you reach fire engine red. 

Step Three: Dip the Cake Pops in the Melted Chocolate

Dip the cake pop stick into the melted chocolate about a half inch. Then stick it into the cake ball. Repeat for all the Mickey mouse cake balls.

Step Four: Allow to Harden Completely

Dip cake pops into the red chocolate until fully coated. Place upright in a holder or foam base to allow the chocolate to harden.

Step Five: Add Mickey Mouse Ears

Before the chocolate hardens, take two melting wafers and stick them in the cake pop to form Mickey’s ears. 

Step Six: Prepare the Chocolate Coating

Melt the almond bark in a bowl using a microwave. Heat 30 seconds at a time until fully melted or according to package directions. Add a splash of oil if needed.

Step Seven: Dip Cake Pops in the Red Coating

Dip the hardened cake pops in the melted chocolate covering the Mickey’s ear and half of the cake pops. Leaving the red exposed on the bottom. 

Step Eight: Prepare the Yellow Chocolate Coating

Melt half a block of white almond bark in a bowl using a microwave. Heat 30 seconds at a time until fully melted. Add a splash of oil if needed. Add a drop of yellow and mix.

Step Nine: Add Yellow Details

Once the cake pops have hardened, dab some yellow chocolate between the red and brown chocolate to form yellow buttons using an unused cake pop stick. 

Step Ten: Let Cool and Enjoy

Expert Tips

  • Melting Almond Bark: When melting the almond bark, make sure you use a microwave-safe bowl, and keep stirring the mixture several times in between until you get a smooth, even mixture.
  • Frosting Flavor Variation: To bring in a bit of flavor variation, I would also recommend using cream cheese frosting instead of regular frosting to make the Mickey Mouse cake pop.
  • Cake Flavor Choices: While you can use almost any flavor of cake to make cake pops, chocolate cake and red velvet cake are hands down, the best choices.
  • Achieving the Perfect Shell: If the candy melting wafers aren’t creating that perfect hard shell around the cake ball, you can add a couple of drops of vegetable oil into them and give it a good mix before you dip the cake balls in it.
  • Adding Details: You can also add small details like Mickey’s buttons or Minnie’s bow using yellow sprinkles or other colored sprinkles or even just using a piping bag along with the melted candy melts.
  • Uniform Surface Preparation: Remember to tap the Mickey Mouse cake pops lightly and remove the excess chocolate to get a uniform, clean surface to work with and add all the details on.
  • Protecting the Work Surface: To keep the chocolate from getting on the surface of your countertop, spread parchment paper on your cookie sheet or working area.

Substitutions

  • Black Candy Melts: I’ve used yellow food coloring to make the yellow candy coating. If you don’t want to use yellow, you can also use black candy melts to make the eyes for the Mickey Mouse.

Variation

  • Minnie Mouse: You can also bring in some variation to these and make Minnie Mouse cake pops in a similar way, just adding a little bow!

Storage Instructions

  • Airtight Container: Place the wrapped Micky Mouse cake pops in an airtight container to preserve freshness.
  • Refrigeration: Keep the container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
