Bakerella Sugar Skulls

Sugar Skull Cake Pops by Bakerella

Serves 10


  • 2 1/2 cups Crumbled Cake
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Frosting
  • 12oz Bakerella Marshmallow White Candy Wafers
  • 2oz Bakerella Colored Candy Wafers (2 oz each of Party Pink, Sky Blue, Sunny Yellow, and Bright Green)
  • Bakerella Yellow Sugar Stars


  • Bakerella DIY Sugar Eyes with Edible-Ink Writing Pen
  • 10 Bakerella Pop Sticks
  • Wax Paper, Plastic Wrap, Baking Sheet
  • Large Metal Spoon
  • 1 Medium Microwave-safe Plastic Bowl
  • 4 Small Microwave-safe Bowls
  • Small Bowl
  • Toothpicks
  • Styrofoam Block


Step 1 Mix the crumbled cake and frosting, using the back of a large spoon, until thoroughly combined.
Step 2 Roll mixture into 10 cake balls and place them on wax paper–covered baking sheet. Reshape each ball into a skull or light bulb shape using your fingers. You can slide the bottom of the skull shape on wax paper to help flatten the bottom side. Place two Sugar Eyes rounded side down in position for sockets. Press into the skull shape and then remove. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for about 15 minutes in the freezer and then transfer to the refrigerator. You want the skull shapes to be firm but not frozen.
Step 3 Melt the Marshmallow White Candy Wafers in a microwave-safe plastic bowl, following the instructions on the package. The coating should be about 3 inches deep for easier dipping.
Step 4 When you are ready to dip, remove a few shaped cake balls at a time from the refrigerator, keeping the rest chilled.
Step 5 One at a time, dip about 1?2 in of a pop stick into the melted candy wafers and insert the stick straight into the bottom of the skull shape, pushing it no more than halfway through. Dip the cake pop into the melted white candy wafers, and tap off any excess.
Step 6 Place in a Styrofoam block to dry.
Step 7 When dry, use the black edible-ink writing pen to draw on eye and nose sockets. Then draw on shapes for the teeth and let dry.
Step 8 Melt colored candy wafers in small microwave-safe plastic bowls. Use toothpicks dipped in melted wafers to dot and draw different colors on the front of the cake pop. Dot on colored teeth so the black appears to outline the coating. Attach yellow stars in the center of the eye sockets with melted coating. Draw on swirls, hearts, dots and mustaches to decorate. Draw on more detail with the black edible ink writing pen and let dry completely in a Styrofoam block.
