How to Make Pineapple Cake Pops

    It’s the end of Pineapple week.

    I thought Pineapple Cake Pops were a great way to end the week, don’t you?
    This also marks a new beginning to my diet…. blah…
    I was really good for the month leading up to vacation and lost 5 pounds. I tried to do good for breakfast and lunch while on vacation, but that quickly went by the wayside as I relaxed and enjoyed myself with my family. Since I got back home at the end of July, I just wasn’t motivated to go back on the diet. Mr. Quart and I are dealing with some discipline issues with Little Cup and I just haven’t had the strength to deal with a diet and family issues…. However, it’s time I got back on the wagon and get serious about my diet again.
    So, today marks five days of an all protein diet! On Saturday, I get to splurge and have my diet-day-off, so I am looking forward to that.
    I’ll also be visiting my girlfriend in Connecticut for the weekend. I can’t wait! I haven’t seen her since she was pregnant, and now her daughter is 14 months old. I’m such a bad friend for not visiting sooner.
    For a dozen Pineapple Cake Pops, you need 1/4 of a 9×13 cake and a small spoonful of frosting. Combine them in the mixer and then measure out 12 equal cake balls.

    Shape the cake balls into cylinders and place into the fridge.

    Melt some Yellow Candy Melts according to directions.
    Dip the stick (or in this case, straws) into the melted candy and then into the cake ball. Complete all pops.
    Dip the cake pops into the candy and coat completely.
    Decide if you want your pops up or down. Do you want them “candy apple” style with the stick up, or a traditional pop with the pop in top?
    Complete all pops.

    Melt some Green Candy Melts. You don’t need a lot, maybe 10 disks. Put the melted candy into a baggie and cut a small tip off the corner. Pipe out the pineapple top on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Leave to dry. 
    I simply free-handed these starting with a base and then fanning out as I worked my way up to the top. 

    Melt some Chocolate. You can use candy melts or chocolate chips. Again, you don’t need a lot, maybe a 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Melt and put into a baggie with a small tip cut off. Pipe diagonal lines around the pop creating diamonds. You can be more creative and form scallops if you have a steady hand.

    Finally, add the green pineapple top. If your chocolate is wet, you can use that to secure the top, or you can add more green to the top of the pineapple as glue.
    Allow to completely dry and then serve at your Luau!
    Ok, ok… you got me… I’ve NEVER had these at a luau before. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t.

    Even our adorable hamster, Chrysanthemum, enjoyed an extra cake pop. 
    P.S. Chrysanthemum did not eat any of the chocolate. She just wanted to do a close-up inspection.

    1. Chrysanthemum looks really happy to be checking these out, how cute! I am amazed with these little beauties! They are awesome! Perfect little pineapples. I'm in awe for your patience with the details. I'm clearly lacking that gene!

    2. I love these! I just became a follower so I can keep up with all your creations. I'm doing a goldfish party for my sons birthday and I'm going to be attempting your goldfish bowl pops. I've never made cake pops before, but my friend gave me a cake pop maker, so we'll see how this goes. Thanks for the inspiration!

    3. Thanks for sharing these at the Foodie Friends Friday linky party! I have chosen them for my host favorite at Check my page out tomorrow for your shout-out!

    4. Wow! These are amazing!! Nice work and I think your hamster (whose name I am scared to try to spell:) would agree. These would be the absolute hit of any luau. Thanks for linking up!

    5. These look so good!! Cake pops and I don't get along so well…I always make such a hash job. These would be so good for my sister's tropical themed hen party next weekend, but I don't think I'm up to the job lol

      I would love to invite you to post over at my link party on The Purple Pumpkin Blog! Hope to see you there 🙂
