Baby Brownie Pops


It's Baby Shower Week here at Marzipan!  I have recently made a few things for baby showers that I wanted to share with you, so I'm taking this week to do it all at once!   These adorable little babies  were so fun to make.  The gender of the baby was not known, so I made both boys and girls.

{Not related to baby showers, allow me to give you a little suggestion as it is still fresh in my mind:  Never give a child (even one that is almost a teenager) a spoon dipped in drippy caramel and then let him venture near your computer.  If you do happen to find that your keyboard's v, b, and f are stuck, then get a toothpick and carefully try to remove said caramel from around the keys all while cursing under your breath that you did not follow my above advice. Thank you.}

Back to the pops... The basic brownie pop instructions are here.  I dipped the pops in a mixture of  80% white, 10% pink, and 10% yellow melted candy melts so that the coating would resemble skin color and not be stark white.

I had a hard time getting my Wilton food writer to write on the coated pops, so I piped the face and hair on with royal icing using a very small tip.  I then went and ordered some Americolor food writing pens to see if they would work better - haven't yet tried them but I'll keep you posted on that.

The cheeks were painted on using a mixture of pink luster dust mixed with a drop of vodka and applied using a food-only paintbrush.

While the hair is still wet, attach a small heart-shaped (or other shape) candy to the girl pops.

When dry, place a regular-sized cupcake paper around the girls' heads and tie at the base of the pop with a pink ribbon.  Boys get tied with blue.

So cute!

  2. These are super duper sweet! Not sweet enough for me to yearn for the sleepless nights that babies bring, but sweet none the less!
