Golden Snitch Pops

If you love Harry Potter, raise your hand! Meghan and I clearly do. Meghan made these adorable golden snitch cake pops and I can’t take one ounce of the credit, except for the photo! These were made with gluten-free cake mix, but you can use whatever type of cake you’d like.

Print Recipe

1 box cake mix (plus required eggs, oil)
1 tub store-bought frosting
Yellow candy melts
Lollipop sticks
Gold sprinkles (bought ours at Williams & Sonoma)
White fondant

1. Make the cake pops according to Bakerella’s fabulous instructions.
2. Coat the cake pops with yellow candy melts. Before the candy melts set, roll the cake pop in gold sprinkles.
3. Cut wings out of white fondant. Attach the wings to the cake pops by cutting small slits into each side — and inserting the wings. For detailed instructions on this step, visit Amy Bites!

I love Harry Potter! These pops are so cute. Love the little wings!

This is such a cute idea! My co-blogger and I both love Harry Potter. I just sent her a link to this suggesting that we make these together the next time we’re in the same state!

Is there something to substitute the fondant with? I’ve only heard bad things about it. Yes, it is good for decorating but the flavor is apparently disgusting and I would rather use something that people would want to eat. Would modeling chocolate work?

I don’t know if modeling chocolate would work because I haven’t used it before. On something like this, the fondant is just a decorative component — people can set the “wings” aside and not eat them — as the fondant won’t be a part of the cake pop. I’m not a huge fan of fondant either for the reasons you stated — but it does serve a purpose for decorating!
