Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops

 Pool Party Pops

The pool is open!
And nothing beats the dog days of summer like a refreshing pool party! 
Everyone wants in on the splashin' action. . . including two of my pups.

So dip your feet in and kick back  . . .

because I made a little something for our pool party.  Can you guess what it is?

Something that gets kind of drippy . . . so you have to hurry up and eat it.

You bet 'cha! These ice cream cone cake pops are just perfect for a pool party!

As cute as the sugar cones look, their pointed bottoms make them difficult to prop up.

So I switched over to ice cream cups.  Rolled out the cake balls and dipped the whole thing in vanilla candy coating. 

 I found that Kroger's brand of candy coating melts nicely and doesn't need any shortening to thin it.

I bought these adorable votive holders . . .

. . . . and they held the ice cream cone cake pops perfectly.

Wouldn't they make cute party favors?

Well you may not be allowed to dive into the pool . . .

But you sure can dive into these poolside treats!

And on a hot summer's day . . . they do go fast! 

Just ask my little cannon balls.


  1. And the starfish is made of chocolate icing?

    1. I love that you see a starfish on top! It is made with melted chocolate drizzled on top. Sprinkles are quickly added before the chocolate solidifies.

  2. Your cake pops are so imaginative! I have tasted your pops and I know first hand that not only do they look great but they taste amazing!!!! I can't wait to see what you come up with next ;)

    1. Thank you so much! Stay posted there is so much more to come!
