These pops were inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations.
Prettify the skulls by adding sprinkles and painting patterns on them. The Red Velvet Cake is a fitting choice of flavor for these.

Makes 20 pops

  • Step 1

    Roll each cake ball into an oblong with your hands, then mold into the shape of a skull. Squeeze the bottom half of the oblong inwards to shape the jaw. Using the ball tool or your index finger, make 2 indentations for the eye sockets. Melt the white candy. Dip the end of each lollipop stick ¾ inch deep into the candy and insert a stick into the neck of each skull. Leave to set. Dip each pop fully into the candy and shake off the excess. Insert into a polystyrene block to dry.

  • Step 2

    Melt the cocoa butter and tint 1 teaspoonful each with the 4 dusting powders. Paint the eye sockets black and paint a black mouth on each pop. Paint other details such as flowers and patterns with the other colors. Place on a tray lined with parchment paper and leave in the fridge until the cocoa butter has set. When set, you can either leave the cake pops as they are or decorate with flower sprinkles, using the remaining white candy and a toothpick to glue them on.
