The Partiologist: Pumpkin Pie Cake Pops!

Pumpkin Pie Cake Pops!

I know, I know, Halloween isn't even over, I'm just so excited to show you what I did with my pumpkin!   In my world, pumpkin pie is not anything I would want for dessert on Thanksgiving or anytime.  However, Pumpkin Pie Cake Pops?  Yes Please.  Three Slices.
 
Pumpkin Pie Cake Pops
 
In all fairness, I should not be the one to judge a piece of pumpkin pie. 
 
I've never eaten it.
 
Mostly because chocolate was around and chocolate trumps pumpkin every time.
 
So why would I want to make little pumpkin pie cake pops you wonder? 
 
Because I came across pumpkin spice candy melts and thought I should give them a try. 
 
And if you're traveling, you can always serve your pumpkin pie by the slice...on a tiny doily!
 
I'm not for sure, but these might be easier to make then an actual pie. 
 
Start by getting your Wilton Pumpkin Spice candy melts.
 
Make your pumpkin cake pop mixture -
 
(Spice cake with a little cream cheese frosting will do the trick)
 
Grab a round 3 1/2" cookie cutter.
 
Press the cake pop mixture inside the cookie cutter and remove the cutter.
 
Slice your pie to serve eight.
 
Insert a cookie stick and dip the slice in your melted candy melts.
 
Remove the stick and let dry on parchment paper.

Now for the crust-

Roll out light brown fondant.
 
Lay a slice of pie on the fondant to measure (yes, each piece).
 
Cut around the slice and leave enough to come up the back of the pie slice.
 
Trim the sides off and make sure it is long enough to make the edge.
 
Lay your crust on a small fondant sponge and press with fondant tool.
 
Quickly, add a bit more melted candy melts and top with the cake slice.
 
Add a dollop of white royal icing and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice!
 
Easy as Pumpkin Pie!

  1. You've never tried a slice of pumpkin pie, not ever? Go ahead and give it a try, you might just like it! When I was a kid, I'd take one slice of turkey and a dollop of mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner, oh and a roll. That was it. I couldn't wait until dessert was served. I'd enjoy a piece of pumpkin pie, apple pie, and whatever else was being served. Did I tell you how much I love desserts?

    1. I will admit, I've NEVER tried a piece of pumpkin pie, or even a bite. I did, however, eat a few slices of the pumpkin pie cake pops! :) Maybe this year I'll at least have a bite...maybe. :)

  16. You wrote to remove the stick to let the candy melt dry, but how would you reinsert it? Or do you leave it in and just work the fondant crust around it?

    1. I removed the stick from the end of the cake after I dipped it. Then after I had the fondant crust on, I inserted another stick in the bottom (start with the pointed end of a wooden skewer to make the start of the hole, then insert stick) Hope this helps!
