Turn your cake pops into sheep with this step-by-step recipe. These cute little creatures will be a hit at childrens' parties


  • 48 basic cake balls formed into oval shapes and chilled Basic cake pop recipe
  • 1,360g white candy melts
  • 48 licorice buttons for heads and 96 licorice pastels cut in half for legs
  • Sugar pearls
  • 48 tiny pink heart sprinkles
  • 96 brown rainbow chip sprinkles

You will need:

  • Deep, microwave-safe plastic bowl
  • 48 paper lollipop sticks
  • Toothpicks
  • Styrofoam block

If the coating is too hot, the attachments will slide off. If it has cooled for too long, the coating will set before you can finish attaching everything. But don’t worry: if that happens, reheat the coating and use it as a glue to attach any remaining pieces.


  1. Make the cake balls into oval shapes and chill in the fridge.
  2. Melt the white candy melts in a microwave-safe plastic bowl, following the instructions on the package. The coating should be about 3 inches deep for easier dipping.
  3. When you are ready to dip, remove a few cake balls from the refrigerator at a time, keeping the rest chilled.
  4. One at a time, dip about 1/2 inch of the tip of a lollipop stick into the melted candy coating, and insert the stick straight into the side of an oval cake ball, pushing it no more than halfway through. Dip the cake pop into the melted coating, and tap off any excess coating.
  5. Immediately attach 1 licorice button in position for the head and the 4 pastel leg pieces by pushing them into the bottom, and sprinkle sugar pearls on the coating before it sets. Let dry completely in a Styrofoam block.
  6. For the face, use a toothpick to place tiny dots of melted white coating on the licorice button heads for eyes.
  7. Using a toothpick, apply a dot of melted coating in position for the nose, and attach a tiny heart sprinkle. Use the same technique to apply brown rainbow chip sprinkles for ears.
  8. Let dry completely in the Styrofoam block.

I think these are the cutest little things!!!


Oh these are fantastic...sooooo cute...I'd love to win the book as i'm running out of new ideas for my Cancer charity cake sale that's coming up soon..things like these would go down a treat..xx


I would LOVE to win the book so I could make these for my baby boy's 1st birthday in Aug, I could use July to try out a few different designs before I make the perfect Cake Pop's for his party. I know his face along with his group of little friends would all light up at having such a treat.


They are brilliant!! I must try and make some for my grandchildren, they would be really amused by them!!


These are amazing I'd love to win the book and make my own!

aaawww these are so cute...I've only ever done plain round ones I really must give these and the cupcake ones a try ;)


These are just the best Cake pops I've seen, may have difficulty convincing children to eat them as they are so cute! I wonder what other critters could be created?


Love these cute little sheep, perfect for Easter or for a birthday party. Animals make such great fun pops I've made chicks, owls and rabbits, but there are so many possibilities you could make a whole tasty menagerie!


i will definately be making these, my sons birthday is coming up soon, and instead of the usual sweets in the goody bags im going to make these and pop one in everyones bag to go home with xx


I so have to make these to take to my knitting group!
