My cake pop friend Brandi is back with another easy cake pop tutorial. Today she’s got an Alligator Cake Pop Tutorial for you. These are sure to please all the little boys out there! You can also add some green triangle candy to his back an change him into a dinosaur!
Hello, my name is Brandi Costa, owner of Painted and Sprinkled. I began cake popping a little over 3 years ago as a way to have “me” time. I fell in love with my first cake pop! I’ve had the pleasure and honor of collaborating with many party people along the way as well as make my customer’s event’s extra special with cake pops!
I am first and foremost a mama to a 5 year old special little boy, Gabe. My son is my hero! Gabe was born with special needs so we’ve had many bumps along our path, but he has been so strong through it all! We say to him “You are our greatest adventure!”
I am a wife of 8 years to my beloved husband, Daniel. We dated throughout high school and still are smitten with one another. He has been my rock.
Well, that’s me in a TINY nutshell. 🙂
How to make Alligator Cake Pops
You will need –
- Cake Pop Dough
- Green Candy Melts
- White Candy Melts
- Black Candy Melts
- Small Round White Candy or Fondant Balls for eyes
Shape your cake ball into a long oval with one side a little more narrow than the other. Flatten the narrow side. Using a cake pop stick, roll a groove onto the top where the eyes will be placed.
Dip your cake into melted chocolate and stand up to dry.
Pipe two spots on the flat side of pop for the nostrils.
Pipe a line all the way around the front of pop for the mouth.
Place two dots of melted chocolate on the top of the pop for eye placement.
Attach two small white candies or fondant balls for the eyes.
Using a toothpick and melted green chocolate, cover the back half of the eyes for eye lids.
Using a toothpick and melted white chocolate, dot the teeth onto the black mouth line.
Pipe on the pupils.
This was great Brandi! Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial with everyone. Those gators look so cute and friendly!
