Graduation Cake Pops

Graduation Cake Pops


Graduation season is now in full swing and everyone is looking for cute and unique treats to dazzle their guests!

I had an idea for some quick and easy cake pops that would be suitable for all skill levels. This post is just a step-by-step picture tutorial of how to make this style of cake pop. For a more detailed tutorial on how to create cake pops from scratch yu can watch our Quick and Easy Cake Pop Tutorial.


Materials Needed:

Black Merckens Coating Wafers

Round Cake Pop Mold

Lollipop Sticks

Renshaw Black Ready-to-Roll Fondant

Renshaw Yellow Ready-to-Roll Fondant

CMC Powder


Step 1:

Make Cake Pop Dough and use the Round cake pop mold to form as many cake pops as you will need. 


Step 2:

Melt the Merckens Black Coating Wafers in the microwave until fully melted (this is achieved by melting them in 2 30-second intervals). if the consistency is a bit thicker than you would like, add a pink of shortening or a small bit of paramount crystals or Lecithin.

Step 3:

Dip a lollipop stick 1/2 " in to the melted candy coating and then insert 1/3 way into the cake pop. set aside and repeat with the remaining cake pops. When all are completed, reheat the chocolate for 10 seconds if necessary to return it to a smooth consistency and dip all of the pops and set them aside to dry.


Step 4:

Take approximately 4ozs of Renshaw black fondant and add 1/2 tsp of CMC powder to it and knead until throughly incorporated. 


Step 5:

Roll the black fondant until it is approximately 1/8" thick and cut into 1.5" squares. Set aside to dry. Roll the yellow fondant a bit thinner then the black fondant toppers and cut into strips that are approximately 2" long and 1/4" wide. Take a knife and cut two slits into one end of each strip.


Step 6:

Use a dot of the melted candy coating to attach the black fondant to the cake pop and do the same with the yellow. Roll a small ball of black fondant, flatten it and and attach to the top of the yellow ribbon.
