Goldfish Bowl Cake Pops

My daughter has been participating in a nature camp this week. She gets to go on hikes and play in a stream, make arts and craft out of the things she finds on the walk and make tie-dye Tee-shirts. She learned about picking berries and not eating from plants unless a grown up tells her it’s OK.  She even came home and told me all about Leaves if Three. Wow! My 6 year old knows about Poison Ivy and I couldn’t pick it out if you showed it to me. Way to go Kiddo!
So, for their end of camp treat, I’m bringing them these Goldfish Bowl Cake Pops. I know, not very “nature” orientated, but you can’t argue that they are cute 🙂
To make the Fish Bowls, start off with my Perfect Bottomed Cake Pop Technique, however, this time place white candy wafers down.
Dip the cake pop into the blue candy melts. Allow the excess to drip off. Then place on to the white wafer.
Quickly add some sprinkles around the stick, this will the be gravel in the bowl.

Once the pop is dry, turn the pop over and take a look at your bowl. Pretty cool, eh?
To add the fish, take a toothpick and add a dot of melted candy and attach you fish.

To make the seaweed, I rolled out two little gumdrops. Sprinkle some waxpaper with sugar and roll, roll, roll. Keep adding sugar as it will get sticky on the rolling pin. The thinner the better. Then take a small knife, pastry wheel or even clean scissors and cut a small leafy, triangular shape.
Attach the seaweed with some wet candy melts.
For a little extra detail, I added some bubbles using the Wilton Icing Writer. 
Put a little on the wax paper and use a tooth pick to dot on the bubbles. 

There – I think the kids at camp are going to love these!

These pops have a bit more steps involved, but you can make them as detailed as you like.
Have Fun Cake Poppin’!

What did you use to make the fish in the fish bowls. Haven't been able to find any candy that small.
