    • Prepare the cake pop base from cake pop batter and form 12 balls. Insert a lollipop stick into each cake ball.
    • Mix a skin tone with mixing molten brown and white candy melts. You can adjust the color tone after your liking. We choose a fair skin tone because Marie Antoinette naturally had a light skin tone.
      Begin making your cake pops by dipping your cake balls in the skin colored candy melts and allow to dry and set.
    • Once they are hardened, using your melted white candy and a lollipop stick or toothpick, attach the mini marshmallows at the top of the head for the baroque hair style and continue adding around the sides.

    • After those are set, keep building the marshmallows up using more melted candy. You can use a few marshmallows for a more modest look or pile them on to get wild and crazy – the sky’s the limit!
    • Once that is all dry, you can attach various small candies using molten white candy – like the little flowers and pearls used here- and make any sort of pattern (or non-pattern!) you like.
