Flying Purple People Eaters Cake Pops

    “Well I saw the thing a comin’ out of the sky
    It had a one long horn and one big eye
    I commenced to shakin’ and I said oo-ooee
    It looks like a purple people eater to me!”
    I love this ridiculous song! It gets me every year. Flying Purple People Eaters is just one of those ear worms that works its way in each October! It’s a cute and catchy song that kids and adults can have fun with, laugh together, and have a goofy time!
    So, I took the song a bit literally and made some One-Eyed, One-Horned Flying Purple Eater and their delicious little flying saucers!
    I think I covered all my bases!

    I decided to make this count as my Birthday Cake. I’m a Halloween Birthday Baby and I love my crazy cakes. And what makes it better are the cake pops! This project was so fun.

    Prep Time 30 minutes
    Total Time 30 minutes


    For the cake and cupcake set up

    • 2 6-inch cakes, frosted
    • 2 jumbo cupcakes, frosted
    • 6 Purple People Eater Cake Pops

    For the Cake Pops

    • 1/4 of a 9x13 cake
    • 2 tablespoons frosting
    • White M&M’s
    • Purple candy melts
    • Banana candy
    • Food coloring pens


      1. Bake and frost your cake and cupcakes. Put them into the fridge to stay firm while you make your cake pops.

      3. Melt your purple candy melts and get your supplies ready.

      5. Cut cardboard pieces into triangular shapes and cover them in foil. Place into the cake and cupcake and place the cake pops into the cake.
