Cake filling of your choice

Purple candy melts

Green candy-coated sunflower seeds

Lollipop sticks


Hand-weigh the cake into one-ounce portions. Roll them into pear shapes and set aside on a sheet pan. Place in the fridge while you prepare the candy melts. Melt the purple candy melts according to the directions indicated on the package.

Remove the cake from the fridge. Dip the sticks into the candy melts and insert them into the narrow end of the cake. Dip the rounded ends of the candy-coated sunflower seeds in the candy melts and attach them to the sides of the pops (like “ears”).

Once the candy melts have fully set and the cake is back at room temperature, the pops are ready to be dipped. Fully submerge the pops into the purple candy melts and tap off any excess.

While still wet, attach the green candy-coated sunflower seeds to the faces of the pops to create the eyes. Allow the candy melts to fully set.

In a small plastic bag, pour some of the prepared purple melts and snip off a corner. Pipe veins all over the head.
