The Little Mermaid Cake Pops

Sweet Treats

Dinglehopper Cakepop Pintrest attempt!

A few weeks ago I saw a video on Facebook showing how to make Little Mermaid inspired cake pops. I really liked the concept and wanted to try it, but like always, I got distracted by some sort of food and/or wine and completely forgot all about it, until my sister’s best friend shared the video and tagged me in it asking me to make them for her. 

Challenge excepted.

Here is the original video I saw: Dinglehopper Cake Pops



So basically this is what I did;

I made a super simple, really basic, all-in-one cake batter and added a little blue food colouring.  I also added a touch of lemon extract to give it a splash of fresh citrus.

The amount of food colouring you add is totally up to you and depends just how blue you want the cake. Of course, you could dye it any colour you want, the world is your oyster.

Now, I have a cake pop maker, but I decided to follow the video and break up the cake and use vanilla frosting to mould small cake balls.

I then melted some white candy melts, added a splash of oil to give it a more liquid consistency to help it cover the cake balls smoothly.

Once all the balls were covered, I split the remaining melted candy melts into 2 bowls and added a drop of food colouring (blue and purple) to each.

Then, I took the newly coloured candy melts and filled some shell moulds gadgets and gizmos.

Once they’d set, I used a little bit of the melted candy melts as a glue on the back of the shells and stuck them to the cake pops.

Et voila.




I’m so glad my sisters friend asked me to make these, they were so much fun.

I’ll definitely be making more Disney inspired bakes soon!

Any suggestions are very welcome!

    1. Thanks 🙂 I found those on amazon – here
      The only thing I found was when I mixed the candy melts with the food dye, some types of food dye made it clump together which in turn made it fairly difficult to work with. I ended up using gel paste food colouring, which didn’t alter the consistency at all!
      I’ve got another Disney themed cake pop (and other goodies) in the pipeline too!

      I’m sure these will go down a treat at the Village fete! You’ll have to let me know all about it xx
