I first made these rocket cake pops for a dear friend of mine whose son had severe food allergies. She asked me to do something space themed for her baby’s birthday that was soy, corn, and gluten free! Needless to say it was quite the challenge but I pulled it off and her little guy was finally able to enjoy some SUPER custom treats for his special day. So cute and the design was fairly simple too (bonus). So, here’s how to make the rocket cake pop…
Rocket Ship Cake Pops
What you will need:
Finished cake pop shaped into cone
Chocolate melts for wings
Sprinkles for the “windows”
Melting chocolate in 3 colors
Cake pop sticks or straws
Toothpick or piping bag
To form the cake pop into a cone shape, begin with a normal round cake ball. Using a rolling motion, begin forming a pointed tip by applying pressure to the top part of the cake ball. Then, place the bottom of the cake ball on a flat surface and continue to hand form the cone as shown in the picture.
Prep the wings by cutting a chocolate melt into quarters
Dip your stick or paper straw into melting chocolate and insert it about half way into your cone shaped cake ball. Once the chocolate hardens, this will keep your cake pop from falling off of the stick and provide some stability for the weight added to the cake pop.
Dip your cake pop in melting chocolate and shake off excess chocolate. Quickly attach a wing to bottom right and left of the cone using a little bit of pressure to ensure they stay on and let dry.
Once dry, dip the top of your cake pop into your second color of melting chocolate and let dry.
Using a toothpick or a piping bag and your third color of melting chocolate. Pipe on a fine line to create a border detail between the top portion and body of the rocket.
Use the same toothpick to apply small dots of chocolate to attach the sprinkle “windows” to the rockets. Note: you can also just use the melting chocolate and create windows using that if you don’t have any sprinkles on hand.
And there you have it! These rocket ship cake pops are the CUTEST for any space themed party.
I added some planet cake pops also and they were a major hit! Hope you enjoy and see you next time…
